Indochino Philadelphia Grand Opening

indochino-940x540

Indochino, the pioneer in online custom menswear is now venturing out with brick-and-mortar stores. Headquartered in Vancouver, Indochino opened its third showroom in the USA earlier this month in Philadelphia at 1606 Chestnut Street.

Two years ago they held a very successful pop-up store on Walnut Street, and were excited to return to the Philadelphia market. Last week they held their grand opening party and many of Philly’s stylish men came by to explore beautifully curated collections, hear about custom tuxedos and how to color-coordinate suits and accessories.

Guests enjoyed local craft beer from Saint Benjamin Brewing Company and delectable cuisine from Rachel’s Pantry (vegan catering). The gift bags were fun, too, and included a patriotic pocket square, a handkerchief, a coupon for 20 percent off a first purchase, and a package of beef jerky.

You’ve probably heard of Britain’s fashion icon Alexa Chung (basically the other Kate Moss) collaborating on a fashion line with denim royalty AG. The vintage-inspired line consists of killer sweaters, dresses, t-shirts, and endless denim, and it nails Alexa’s careless Twiggy style.

The line is stirring up lots of buzz, but you’ll only be able to snag it in one (yup, just one) Philly shop. The lucky spot? Skirt boutique in Bryn Mawr, who just got their delivery today.

A real-life New York gay couple appears in Tiffany’s latest engagement campaign, the first in the company’s history to feature a same-sex couple.

The handsome fellows are sitting cozily on a stoop in The Big Apple in the black-and-white photo. In the corner is the phrase, “Will you promise to never stop completing my sentences or singing off-key, which I’m afraid you do often? And will you let today be the first sentence of one long story that never ever ends?”

The Edit: 8 Fantastic Faux Fur Jackets

Fur-Jackets

We love real fur as much as the next person, but sometimes you need a cheaper and, not to mention, more fun alternative. Faux fur allows you to try out the quirkiest and loudest fur trends—like stripes, unnatural hues, and interesting cuts—in a more accessible way. So toss one on (or prop one over your shoulders à la blogger chic) with a tee and jeans for a perfectly cozy fall look. Plus, if you opt for the leopard print, you’ve got yourself an Edie Sedgwick get-up for Halloween.

Suddenly Fem Donates $5K Worth of Male-to-Female Trans Fashions to Mazzoni Center

Catalog-cover-2014Suddenly Fem, a fashion and lifestyle catalog that sells clothes and accessories to the cross-dresser and male-to-female transgender community, is all up in Philly this weekend. Not only will it be participating in tomorrow’s fourth annual Philly Trans* March, but the retailer has donated $5,000 worth of clothing to the Mazzoni Center—everything from dresses and heels to jackets and lingerie that are made to fit the male-to-female figure. 

The donation will go to the Center’s Sisterly Love Trans* Wellness Project, which, among other things, seeks to help trans women succeed in the workforce. The trans community has a high rate of unemployed people and many struggle to find the right professional outfit,” says the Mazzoni Center’s Samantha Jo-Dato. “We will make the clothing accessible to women in the trans community who are looking for jobs. We welcome them to stop by and pick out a couple amazing things for their wardrobes.”

That’s one of the goals of Suddenly Fem, too.
