A Man About Style
In the words of Jay-Z "nobody's built like you, you have to design yourself." Many of us feel that buying made to measure is out of reach, even if our we are far from the "average body type." With this in mind, Indochino set out to make buying made to measure convent, cost-effective and accessible. The Canadian based retailer was the first company to deliver mass customized men's clothing directly to consumers and remains the largest in the world.

For the classic man, the revered relationship between a man and his tailor still holds value.
