Last week Allen + I ventured out of the city and down south to check out Bonobos’ first Guideshop in San Jose. We left the city around 11am + made it to San Jose in record time! The killer weather in San Jose (why is it always warmer there??) set the tone for what ended up being an oh-so fabulous day of shopping, lunching + catching up with old friends in the South Bay.
So…we drove all the way to San Jose for a Guideshop?!? For those of you who are not familiar a Guideshop is: a one-of-a-kind brick and mortar experience from Bonobos. They are renowned for great fitting clothes and excellent customer service, with a personal and hassle-free shopping experience.
And the Guideshop experience goes a little something like this:
· Make an appointment for a one-on-one fitting with a Bonobos Guide at www.bonobos.com/guideshop; walk-in appointments are also welcome
· Once you’re fit, check out at Bonobos.com either during your Guideshop appointment, with the help of a Guide, or place your order at home later
· Shipping is free and items are delivered to your doorstep in 1-5 days
· Bonobos offers easy returns (free return shipping) and guarantees 100% customer satisfaction
The fabulous team at Bonobos set Allen and I up with the ‘Master’ Guide. He took us through all of the fits + styles and almost all of the Bonobos merchandise. This included everything from tailored suits, dress shirts, blazers, casual shirts, denim and chinos. Our Guide provided us with the service of a fit expert and style advisor in a relaxed manner with ZERO stress. Once Allen decided on a fit (washed chinos in slim straight), Allen was able to place an order through the Guide + by the end of the week his chinos were in his closet!
Check out Allen’s killer style below, featuring his brand new Bonobos chinos!
All that shopping for Allen left me feeling left out + drove me to take a little inspiration from the beautiful menswear in the Bonobos Guideshop. After a quick fitting with our ‘Master’ Guide I ended up with an XS casual men’s woven. Like Allen’s chinos my woven was at my door by the end of the week + was the perfect piece to style with my new blonde weave!
