When it comes to custom, Indochino is the one and only. Indochino became the leader in online custom menswear by providing high-quality, affordable clothing that fits the body perfectly. They make it easy for their clients to get a unique tailored mens look that is professional yet fashionable.
Today we talk to Indochino’s co-founder and CEO Kyle Vucko. Kyle comes from the stuning Victoria, BC in Canada. It is here he met co-founder, fellow classmate and friend Heikal Gani at the University of Victoria. In 2007, Indochino was born. We take a moment to get to know Kyle and his brilliance behind his menswear empire. These are Kyle’s People, Places and Things. -TSL
PEOPLE: HIS PARENTS, MICKEY DREXLER of JCREW, STEVE JOBS
“Personally, my parents have been hugely supportive in my career. My dad (who is also an entrepreneur) has been a great inspiration. Professionally, I admire Micky Drexler, the CEO of J.Crew and the late Steve Jobs of Apple for their ability to make customers and amazing products the centre of their world-changing businesses.”

PLACES: VANCOUVER, CANADA
“While I will always have a soft spot for my home town of Victoria BC, I love Vancouver. Its mix of amazingly talented people, comfortable climate, and beautiful surroundings make it hard to beat. Sometimes I could use a bit more excitement, but that is where our office in Shanghai comes in.”
Co-Founders Heikal Gani and Kyle Vucko
THINGS: THE TRAVELLING TAILOR POP UP SHOP
“I’ve had an exciting time figuring out how to build a great retail experience for men with our Traveling Tailor pop-up store. Very few companies have been able to create amazing shopping experiences online, offline, and on mobile; essentially everywhere a guy wants to be. It has been a lot of fun to figure out how to create an overall great experience for men in a world of technology that is evolving very quickly.”
Indochino’s Travelling Tailor Pop Up Shop will be in San Francisco Sept 18-23
See you there!
