Your Suit. Your City. Your Style.
Wearing: Grey Custom-Made Indochino Suit, Black Louis Vuitton Belt, Black Mexlan Shoes
Alright, so today's post is a little more awesome because I had the chance to work with a great brand by the name of Indochino. Not too long ago they reached out, asked me to work with them on a project called "Your Suit. Your City. Your Style.", and gave me the opportunity to represent San Francisco. Cool, right? Indochino only has three showrooms in the U.S. - one in New York (represented by Aaron of 'The Modern Otter'), another in Philadelphia (represented by Sabir of 'Mens Style Pro'), and the last in San Francisco (represented by me). So getting to represent SF is a pretty huge deal.
The suit I chose has a print on it that adds some super sweet texture; the print itself is called 'Prince of Wales'. Kind of a cool name, right? Well, to tell you the truth, I did feel like a prince of some sort because, immediately after I put on the suit and wore it around town, heads turned and people gawked.
Now, I'm not one to soak up the limelight or welcome it often (I get really shy), but on that day I just let it reign (pun intended). I had a number of people say things like, "Wow, look at his suit." or "I want a suit like his." Even had other men come up to me expressing just how much they like my suit, in addition to asking where I got mine. This stuff doesn't happen every day, guys! I was in utter shock at how positive the response was.
The Indochino suit was my first suit. It really made me feel great and confident in myself knowing that others admire it just as much as I do. I'm a pretty small dude, so having something made just for me and only me was the greatest feeling ever. In this Prince of Wales getup, I really did feel special - like royalty. Why? Because that's how people treated me.
How does that saying go? ... There's nothing better than a man in a well-tailored suit. Well, as a man - let me tell you... There's absolutely nothing better than a well-tailored suit. Confidence is key, and I have Indochino to thank for mine. So this may have been my first suit, but it definitely won't be my last.
