I know summer’s almost over, but I needed a pair of shorts, so I went online to look around.
J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, and Topman.
L. L. Bean had a good selection, but I wasn’t sure about their sizing. So, as a last ditch effort, I visited Bonobos. To my surprise, I found a pair immediately.
The 7″ B’s Knees Short is just what I wanted, but I didn’t feel comfortable buying without trying them on…until I found the Bonobos Guideshop.
Their genius service idea gave me an opportunity to go to a physical location and try on the shorts. I made an appointment, took the train to SoHo, and was graciously assisted in finding the right size—it was a good thing I did because they ran on the smaller size. The shorts will arrive in the mail tomorrow, but I know what I’m getting and I couldn’t be happier.
Well done Bonobos, you have made my life pleasant and easy.
