Weird.  The site no longer lists the two founders though Google has a direct link here: https://www.indochino.com/about/founders   My guess is the business was sold and now run by a bunch of eCommerce guys: http://www.indochino.com/about/management   The site looks almost like a cheaper version of Suit Supply 
For those who are in the San Francisco Bay Area, Bloomingdales in SF Union Square has some of the current season suits at about 65 % off or so after an additional 50 % off (saw one marked from 1800 down to about 550).  Mostly 3 roll 2 but a few 2 buttons.  Mostly grey and blue patterns in flannel style however.  Superb value if you ask me.
I think the racy ads from Suitsupply doesn't sit well with the far left of the SF crowd, who even put up signs that Porn is killing love.   I mean, really???   NYC and SF are almost equally left, but the former just has a bit more common sense.  And this is from a guy who grew up in San Francisco.   You might as well buy from the site in the meantime.
According to this guy in this article: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102424837   Not sure what year and where.  Heck my dad's MTM suits in HK back in the late 80s were already over $300 USD.
not sure I follow but it appears we are buying a suit without structure (no canvassing, etc.) now being passed off as some sartorial excellence only because Kiton makes them?  sounds like another version of hermes man on brand whoring in a different way.
I'm assuming the OP wants new, and not used.  If he wants used heck he should even look into kiton for that price range.
Anyone knows when the San Francisco store will open?  I would love to stop by.
http://www.artofmanliness.com/2010/02/12/the-art-of-manliness-suit-school-part-i-fused-vs-canvassed-suits/   I wouldn't say there's really that much difference, though the really picky ones here in SF Classic will tear me a new one on that.  On the plus side, having an extra layer to the bottom of the jacket gives it a bit more form, though if the jacket is a heavier weight fabric the difference would be minimal.
If you allow $200 for tailoring it can *definitely* be done.  Shortening sleeves + tightening/expanding waist + hem + take in waist of the jacket are the most common alterations and all together should run you 150 max, unless you have functioning button holes.   Suitsupply should be worthy of consideration, *unless* you care about Made in XXX.  Note most of their suits have functioning button holes which is a pain for sleeve shortening unless you only need to have take...
Hey all,   I couldn't find an answer after STFF so I figure I would post a thread and hopefully someone may know.   Attached are pics that of a PS mainline suit that I picked up from Yoox recently.  $360 after tax and IMHO not bad.  But the functional buttons just makes alteration a lot more $$$ - my local tailor quotes $130 to shorten sleeves from the shoulder (he said will require slight slimming of the button hole since it's about 1.25 in reduction.   Does anyone...
