I ordered some suits from Indochino for the wedding that’s coming up in a couple weeks (omg!), and they’re still not here. Well, really, it’s only one suit that’s for the wedding. The other suit is just another suit. They’re supposed to fit right out of the box because there’s the measuring aspect in advance of the orders, but they offer free alterations to get the fit just perfect. I don’t know how mine will turn out, and they have shipped from the Indochino factory in China. Now, instead of being flown out from China directly to LA–which would make sense for a Los Angeles delivery–they shipped the suits with DHL to a hub in Cincinnati, Ohio. I imagine that the reason for that is bulk rate over the Pacific and then it’s just domestic logistics after that. It’s pretty smart, but the suits shipped out Thursday of last week and ostensibly cleared customs. But that last update was on Tuesday.
