A man in a suit is really a weakness of ours. And of course, it’s all about fit. Cue Indochino, a custom online menswear company – you may have already heard of them, they’ve been getting lots of buzz and they’re Canadian (the two owners met at the University of Victoria and they’re based in Gastown in Vancouver). To help spread the word about Indochino and get guys measured up and styled in customized suits, Indochino offers a weeklong event called the Traveling Tailor – traveling across different cities & hosting a pop-up event. We wanted to know what happens behind-the-scenes at the Traveling Tailor and asked Crystal Walton, Brand Manager for Indochino’s Traveling Tailor to capture her adventures as she headed over to Washington, DC.
Up bright and early to leave Vancouver and fly out to DC to get our Traveling Tailor (or TT as we like to call it) all set up and ready for business. Comfy clothes are a requirement for the plane ride – let’s go!
Opening day is always crazy & hectic but it doesn’t end there. I haven’t had any time at my laptop in days so its back to the hotel room to do some work before the craziness of the week really takes off.
Took a little detour coming back from the studio to drive past the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial. This was the one monument I personally wanted to see the most and I literally was in awe at how powerful it was.
Work hard, play hard – that’s my motto! Wrapped up a successful week by unwinding at the Washington Wizards NBA game. Headed to take down the event space tomorrow then fly home, only to do it all again in a couple weeks in a different city!
