Stylish guys often get the short end of the stick when it comes to shopping for menswear in the city, but that's about to change. In order to meet the rapidly evolving demands of its customer base, Nordstrom has aligned with leading e-tailers to fill the gap including HauteLook, Trunk Club and most recently, Combatant Gentlemen via Pop-In@Nordstrom. Often referred to as the "Warby Parker" of menswear, Combatant Gentlemen cuts out the middlemen and supplies men with Italian Wool suits at a fraction of the typical price. Starting at just $160, Combatant Gentlemen eliminates the markups presented by traditional retail with a vertical supply chain and direct to consumer business model. The company recently released a new app that can curate outfits based on a variety of factors including climate, location, occasion, fit preference, and even previous shopping habits. Additionally, customers can shop online from Combatant Gentlemen using their “Fit Tech” algorithm which translates a customer’s BMI into a perfect fit.
The Seattle Combatant Gentlemen Pop-In@Nordstrom will take place March 4 and 5 and give men an opportunity to get fitted for a custom suit with an experienced tailor personally trained by CEO Vishaal Melwani, a third-generation tailor. Additionally, select apparel from the Combatant Gentlemen line will be available for in-store purchase. Combatant Gentlemen has partnered with Georgetown Brewing Company and Macallan Whisky for the event to provide craft beer and whisky tastings throughout the weekend. A local DJ will also be on site both days spinning tunes for shoppers.
Guys, listen up: Every man should own at least one great suit, this is your chance to experience the difference of made to measure clothing. Don't miss out!
