The world’s largest made-to-measure menswear company, Vancouver-based Indochino, has just opened its first location inside a major shopping centre. Until now, Indochino’s storefronts have been on urban streetfronts. Indochino plans to open 150 retail stores globally by the year 2020, with a goal of selling a million suits annually.
Located at Mississauga’s Square One Shopping Centre, the new 2,900 square foot Indochino opened on Thursday, June 2. It replaces a Danier Leather location in the mall, which recently shuttered after filing for insolvency in March. Indochino is located next to another Vancouver based retailer, Lululemon, with Montreal-based B2 by Browns Shoes on its other side. Square One recently ranked 10th in our list of Canada’s most productive shopping centres, with 2015 sales per square foot of $994. That number has since surpassed $1,000 per square foot annually, according to landlord Oxford Properties.
Indochino customers are paired with a Style Guide in-store, who helps them design one-of-a-kind suits or shirts, with suit prices beginning at $599 and shirts at $89 (both Canadian Dollars). Style Guides take measurements, assist with fabric selection, and walk shoppers through custom options including buttons, vents, pockets, lapels and monograms.
