No, there won’t be robots in the back bringing clothes to your dressing room. But making a pit stop in Seattle on Thursday is Indochino’s “Traveling Tailor,” a pop-up store that offers men a chance to find that perfect suit.

The Indochino Pop-Up Store: Grand Central Station, New York City.Vancouver, B.C.-based Indochino operates an online service that allows men to easily purchase high-quality, custom-made affordable suits. The company, which is backed by Seattle’s Madrona Venture Group and others, is traveling up and down the West Coast with these temporary physical pop-up stores that offer in-person appointments with a stylist and fit specialists.

Indochino co-founder and CEO Kyle Vucko is looking forward to his company’s time in the Emerald City.

“While it’s always exciting to come to a city for the first time, we’re particularly excited about Seattle because of our affinity for the city,” Vucko said in a press release. “More than geographical proximity, Vancouver and Seattle companies have a long history of using technology to create better services.”

Indochino, founded in 2007, raised $4 million in March 2011 and then reeled in another $13 million this past March.

The Seattle pop-store is located at the Harbor Steps at 1220 Western Ave near Pike Place. The 30-minute appointments, which run until Oct. 13, can be made here.

    I bought a suit from them two years ago and absolutely love it. Reasonable prices, fast shipping (from overseas too), and the custom tailored touches make a big difference in fit. Great to see them doing these popup stores, but the measurement kit they provide was super straightforward.

    They are growing at an amazing speed, curious to see what the next round of funding will bring!
