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!
