Sizing will always be an issue with online stores unless you know the brand well that you know exactly what fits you best.     I've shopped on myhabit and once tried on a canali but it was awful fitting for a 38.  Unless I am either super ripped like Maurice Jones Drew with super long legs.  Then bought a corneliani size 38 off gilt, and it fit about as well as any size 38 fits - it was a keeper   Now i just got a Paul Smith mainline suit off yoox (after addl 10pct...
To date I have yet to find a problem with Yoox except for one of suits I got which I know was severely discounted as it was defective (wrong stitching, etc.)  I probably should have returned it but kept it as the price was pretty good.  Turns out I wear it all the time and didn't care at the end ...   Reading through the forums here I know that some of the items are off-spec or defective from Yoox, but for the most part they are NOS (New old stock - usually stuff 1...
Looks like both got picked up.  But not too many people wear 3 btn suits these days.  If you can pull it off without looking like a guy stuck in year 2000 go ahead. (I know I can't)   Not too coincidentally, most of the 3 button models of Caruso have a steeper discount.
 Probably so - I know that some of the orders I've placed in the past took over two weeks to get to the west coast, and usually that's the start of the season where prices have just dropped once.  Then of course once the return accumulates at the Hoboken warehouse they get shipped out in less than a week to get here.  Though the pair of shoes I got was tried on (marks on the bottom), but no creases and all labels are intact.   Not everything returned is necessarily bad --...
Of all orders I've placed with Yoox everything arrived without issues.  Granted I'm sure one item I got was off spec'ed and that's why it was severely discounted:   - Costume National 'mainline': suit:  the pant pockets were stitched shut (not with the normal stitching that you can easily remove) and one pocket flap wasn't stitched.  No issues on the jacket  (The suit was $225 for a reason)   I think the issues are the high number of returns around this time - people...
Indochino is no longer an indy outlet - no pun intended.  I've been them advertise on Facebook last year as I've seen suggest posts by them after I liked a couple of fashion related pages.  This part of the reason why the thread sorta died.
 For a MTM shirt they really did a poor job and look almost one size too big.  One would think the sleeve length should be proper at the very least. It looks like they they need to open the sides, remove excess fabric at the chest area to slim down the chest portion, along with cutting off excess fabric on the sleeve, and shorten the sleeve length.  
I used Frank for slimming a shirt which he did pretty well.  What he did was removed the existing darts, and sewed from the inside that was much sturdier than the original factory darts.  I was he did that pretty well and will take a couple more shirts for that same purpose.   I didn't choose him for my new suit earlier as he doesn''t do func buttons.  
I wound up choosing Ricardo's as he's somewhat convenient as it's about 15 min away from my commute route, and also based on some of the Yelp reviews and one recommendation on this thread.  The others closer to where I live or work just don't do functional buttons, and going up to San Francisco is too much of a drive and hassle esp with a baby boy at home.   He didn't ask a whole lot of questions - basically did what a typical tailor would do - had me wear my suit as is,...
the 2 suits i got from yoox about 2 years ago had the tags attached to the one of the button holes of the jacket, so that's a first.  As others have said just keep the tag with the garment when you return (probably just tie a know so it doesn't fall off during transport.
