Your dream Gucci jacket is closer than you think

Your dream Gucci jacket is closer than you think

Take over control

For a limited time only, the brand's Ion Orchard boutique welcomes customised tailoring and outerwear orders

At risk of sounding like a broken record, to 'Guccify' oneself is not to dive head first into logomania. The process, far more complex; requiring understanding of the house's way of life. For example, it seeks to expand our vocabulary of beauty, and urges the unfiltering of our sense of self. Here's how.  

Beginning tomorrow and for three weeks only, Gucci's Do It Yourself service zeroes in on daytime and evening tailoring, granting the man's uniform license to be anything but boring. A variety of cuts offered is a given — as with freeplay with choice of fabrics, buttons and monogramming — but it's the selection of unabashed, bright blazer linings, printed silk button-downs, and of course, signature patches, that Gucci's code of eclecticism invites all personalities to rear their head. And, be embraced. 

For the man not in need of a suit, take heart in knowing that its host of animal appliqués will too, allow your personal take on casualwear. Let the denim, bomber and leather jacket styles be canvas to your desires.

Gucci's Do It Yourself service for tailoring and casual outers is available at the brand's Ion Orchard boutique. From 17 November till 7 December 2017.
