STORE WARS: Macy’s vs. Indochino
Starting March 15th and running through April 4th, Dappered.com is hosting a bracket based tournament with the purpose of eventually crowning the all around Affordable Men’s Style Retail Champ for 2011. For a full introduction see this post. For the full bracket, click on the image to the right. Feel free to make a case for your preferred competitor in the comments section, but don’t forget to vote at the bottom of each match up. On with today’s showdown:
Strengths: Versatility. Accessibility. Balance of affordable yet still nice. Their One Day Sales. Their strong in-house brand Alfani Red. Good sub $300 suits. Levi’s that go on sale a lot. Some INC offerings. The 20% off monthly coupons they send card members. Decent watches. A good place to find your significant other a gift.
Weaknesses: Their shoe department. Macys.com can get a little clunky and shipping can be steep. Sometimes those coupons come with a boatload of exclusions. And seriously, when are they NOT having some kind of sale?
Strengths: One of the few places to find a well designed athletic cut suit because they’re actually custom made. Unique in their scope. Incredible customer service. Good to great sales, plus a $75 re-tailoring credit to guarantee your suit fits precisely the way you want it. Natural shoulders available on their suits. Incredibly customizable. Working their way into other avenues like accessories and outerwear.
Weaknesses: Those over the top website images. Sometimes if your second suit is made by a different tailor, it won’t fit precisely the same as the first (but the $75 credit should take care of that.) Their over-stacked sleeve buttons are strange. Shirts seem oddly expensive at $100.
Your votes determine who moves on to the next round. Cast your ballot below:
UPDATE: Indochino pulls off a stunning upset of Goliath. Down goes Macy’s.
