Outfit of the Day | A Tiny Inconsequential Unimportant Announcement

Sweater: Old Navy | Vest: Target | Pants: Target | Boots: Report | Scarf: old, maybe F21 | Watch: Fossil | Cuff: Charlotte Russe

I'm so excited to be one of the first Chicago Outfitters for Trumaker, a San Francisco-based company that makes custom, built-to-fit shirts for men. (...women love our shirts too! If you've been searching for the perfect boyfriend-fit shirt, you're in luck.)

A few highlights:
Outfitters come to you, take your measurements, and offer style guidance totally free of charge.
These J.Crew/Brooks Brothers/Thomas Pink-quality shirts are totally customizable (think collar style, pockets, room for a watch) and, starting at just $98, the cost and time of tailoring are already included.
Once your first shirt is delivered and you confirm that the fit is perfect, your preferences and measurements are entered into your online account, and you can shop without thinking about sizing ever again.
Dry clean friendly and machine washable. Say whaaaaa?

Out here in the blogosphere, we sometimes forget that the sacred act of shopping isn't fun for everyone. Most men hate malls, and they really hate shelling out cash (that would be better spent on an almost-legal scotch or the Xbox One) than on clothes that don't even fit right. Most off-the-rack shirts don't fit most men, and most men would rather chew off their own arm than spend precious non-9-to-5 time at the tailor. An absolutely customized, perfect-fitting shirt is a little day-to-day luxury that guys may not think to get for themselves.

If you're in the Chicago/Kansas City/Indianapolis areas, I'd love to talk to you about getting the men in your life hooked on Trumaker! Bloggers, if you (or your husband/boyfriend/best friend/brother/dad/coworkers) are interested in reviewing a Trumaker shirt, you're going to love the referral program. And ohhh yes, little elves, we do have gift cards.

Want more details? Let's chat.


  1. I was really interested in one of those shirts for my husband but cannot for the life of me find on their website which cities they are currently servicing.

    1. Hi Catherine! I just emailed you, but right now we're in San Francisco, LA, Denver, Milwaukee, and Chicago.

  2. YAY! The vest made it back in the remix! And congrats on your big deal with Trumaker...nothing like a custom item made for you!


    1. Thanks lady! Yeah, I'm in love with the concept - it's such a fun way for guys (and girls!) to shop.

  3. well isn't that cool! I am planning on getting a custom fit shirt for Ty for the wedding… 'cause he has a big neck! haha

    1. hahah I vote the shirts are too small, there's nothing wrong with his neck! ;)

  4. Such a great outfit and congrats on the new endeavor!
