Earlier today I went to the Indochino Traveling Tailor pop-up event that is happening in LA until March 2nd. A well-dressed gentleman named Marlon took 14 of my measurements and then guided me through the Indochino process of designing a custom suit. This is the first time I have even had my measurements taken so it was a pretty interesting experience. The great thing is that the suit is then custom made for you and it is under $500! You can choose the fabric, lapel, buttons, lining, pockets, and a bunch of other options. I highly recommend making an appointment and checking it out before it’s gone. They are also coming to DC, SF, NYC, and Chicago in the coming months.

"in 2009, i planned to become a guest of 31 secluded and visually unique tribes. i wanted to witness their time honoured traditions, join in their rituals and discover how the rest of the world is threatening to change their way of life forever. most importantly, i wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time, a body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world. i didn’t start this project anticipating that i could stop the world from changing. i purely wanted to create a visual document that reminds us and generations to come of how beautiful the human world once was." - jimmy nelson
