Indochino Offering Free Pants to Goldman Sachs Employees

Men’s wear retailer Indochino is doing its part to help the guys from Goldman Sachs navigate their new, less formal way of dressing.
Last week, the investment banking firm made headlines when it said it was shifting to “a firmwide flexible dress code” to reflect the “more casual environment.”
Indochino jumped at the opportunity and is offering free custom chinos to any Goldman Sachs executives based in New York or New Jersey. The men need only visit one of the company’s showrooms in the tristate area — Madison Avenue, Financial District, SoHo, Brooklyn and Short Hills, N.J. — and show proof of employment and a photo ID to take advantage of the offer. From there, they will get measured, select chino color and customizations. Orders must be placed by Friday, April 26.
“Goldman Sachs is the epitome of the financial industry and its newly relaxed dress code is a reflection of more relaxed workplace standards and a shift toward personal choice and increased flexibility,” said Drew Green, president and chief executive officer of Indochino. “Starting with a great-fitting, casual pair of chinos, we’re inviting executives to refresh their wardrobes with Indochino so that they can be comfortable and confident in any situation.”

Virgil Abloh, Tom Sachs on the Fashion Industry, Trump and Creative Processes

“Me in fashion is sort of a joke,” said Virgil Abloh, the founder of Off-White and Kanye West’s creative right-hand man. “I don’t take it that seriously.”
Abloh made the comment during the Apolis’ Speaking Series with Tom Sachs and Barneys New York’s creative ambassador Simon Doonan, who moderated the chat.
The talk, which took place at Apolis’ TriBeCa location, began with 20 rapid-fire questions covering everything from the underwear they wear — Abloh prefers Supreme black boxers while Sachs wears Zimmerli boxer briefs — to how they self-soothe — e-mails for Abloh and Amazon Prime for Sachs. But the discussion eventually moved into deeper territory when they expounded on their creative processes, their feelings about Trump and fashion in general. Here, the highlights.
On creating Off-White:
Virgil Abloh: For me it’s one big art project. And it’s these clothes and the things that I make that are just sort of a means to paint a bigger picture that fashion should have a brand that has someone behind it that cares about different context, different social things and different landscapes.
On hating fashion — but not really hating it:
Tom Sachs: I don’t know if I’m against fashion. I love the way Chanel looks on my wife.
