And what are the results from Hockerty Menswear?
The world of men’s fast suiting is ever growing in its popularity. Perfect for those gents who are time poor, work in isolated locations or those that take their sweet time to narrow in on their colour and design of choice.
Just imagine, sitting at home, comfortable on a Saturday morning, coffee in hand about to completely customise a brand new suit without leaving the couch. That was exactly my experience when I designed my latest suit.
One of the main contenders in this fast suiting market is Hockerty Menswear.
Hockerty offers a large range of colours and a number of customisation options via their online platform for all those suit buyers playing at home. The ordering process is super straight forward and easy to follow. The creation is presented visually as you progress through the design phases.
The systematic approach to selecting fabrics, styling and final touches follows a very similar pathway to that of an instore suit purchase, only unlike an instore Made To Measure suit you can physically see the suit coming to life.
The measuring process was articulated easily as it follows the same format as the Indochino measuring instructions. Using a tailors measuring tape and with the help of my partner, we had completed the fairly comprehensive measurements in about 8 minutes.
The final product was then made, shipped and arrived within 2 weeks. Typically I have issues with the fit of my suits first time around. However, in the case of Hockerty I was surprised that each item the shirt, jacket and the waistcoat all fit quite well.
My only issues came with the trousers. It appeared that the thighs had not added anything to my fitted measurements and the legs came back a little tighter than expected. Nothing a quick alteration job can’t fix though.
The fit of the shirt is impressive and the range of customisable optionals are definitely a nice touch.
Fast suiting is exactly that! It is suits made quickly and delivered fast. They are a great option for a last minute suit at a very reasonable price. Based off the cost of this suit I would have to say the fit was the most impressive, however, I was expecting a slightly higher level of quality from the ‘premium’ materials selected when ordering.
The suit looks good and fits well, but you can tell the lightweight material doesn’t give you that reassuring feeling of supreme quality. That being said, the suit arrived as designed and the fit is very good and you have got to be happy with that.
