Would you buy a fitted suit online? Ordinarily I would be skeptical — but that was before I ordered a suit from Cottonbrew, a company innovating in a fashion space that has been in mothballs for far too long: tailored suits. And I have to say, I’m pretty excited about this company and it’s products after going hands on. Note: use coupon code “dailytekk” to get a 20% discount on your Cottonbrew order!
I’m not going to speak for all guys, but for me, personally, buying a suit has never been a fun experience. For one thing, it’s not convenient. It takes too long. I barely feel like I have time to do things like get a haircut because my schedule is already to full. Obviously, then, going in to a store to get measured is not a high priority.
Other cons to traditional suit buying? You normally have to choose between expensive or crappy. I’m no fashion aficionado — I like to look good, but I’m not deep enough into fashion to know (or care) about things like stitching and fabrics. Plus, sometimes making small talk with an old lady or dude while they measure you is… not fun.
If I’m going to buy a suit, I want the simplest, easiest possible experience. So far I’ve never found something simpler or easier than Cottonbrew.
But the thing is, even in our society where casual is invading all sectors (thanks in no small part to the tech startup revolution), suits and blazers do have a place. There are certain events where you’re expected to have one. And if you have enough such events in your life, you need several.
Luckily there’s Cottonbrew (and no, this is not a paid ad). Cottonbrew got me a great suit that I can say I really, truly love (both in terms of the style and fit) while letting me skip most of the pain I normally associate with clothes shopping in general and suit shopping in particular.
With Cottonbrew I simply picked out a style of suit online, sent in a few pictures of myself wearing a favorite tailored shirt, answered a few questions from the Cottonbrew team and waited a few weeks for my new suit to arrive. It was a great experience. That’s the Cottonbrew experience in a nutshell, but let me go into a bit more detail.
