Who's Aili? Link plz? I'll have to go elsewhere to find a suit because Indochino officially gave up on me, and they told me to go ask Groupon for a refund instead of crediting my Groupon code again (I guess to prevent me from ordering in the future). I can understand, but it's their own fault. Their tailors keep changing measurements after the customer goes through multiple remakes to get measurements down.
@Beatlejoose: that remake looks excellent. Did they follow your exact adjustments on the remake, or did they change it up a little again? I'm curious if they only follow your spec on the first remake and assume future orders are new suits.
Quote in e-mail from Indochino regarding inexplicable adjustments to your measurements: I am sorry, I am unable to guarantee the measurements will not be altered as this is a part of the tailoring process. For example, I requested arms thinner on my remake. Their "tailoring process" made them even wider on the next suit. So... what's the point of tailoring again? Or "custom suiting" in general? This philosophy goes against the entire purpose of...
My THIRD remake, with specification "Please do not change these measurements" because their tailors keep changing them inexplicably, messing stuff up. Well, guess what--the tailor changed my measurements! Expanded arm, wrist, thigh, and knee, inexplicably. Now I have tree trunk arms on a really slim suit. Also, one of my pants pockets was messed up in the sewing process and they accidentally attached the inside of the pocket to the lining, or where the lining is...
I think that is a great fit. Besides the trouser hem, I don't see much that could be improved for an online MTM suit.

He added a thin shoulder pad and changed the roped shoulder to standard flat ones....not sure if that's the correct terminology, but the shoulder is no longer roped, and it lays flat at the point where the top of the sleeve meets the edge of the shoulder. Sounds good. Before and after...
Buttons falling off is still common; has happened to me and many others. Not knowing the quality from 3 years ago, I doubt most of us will be able to make that comparison. But in general, as demand and production increases, quality goes down the toilet. It doesn't matter who's doing the work: Ford, Toyota, ModernTailor, Indochino. This is especially true of these online MTM services as of right now, with booming cultural demand for "custom" and "personalized"...

I got a quote from UPS just for kicks when I was mailing mine back--for it to arrive the NEXT DAY woulda cost only $18 (from New England). How in the f'ing world did he run up a $70 shipping fee?

Yeah I'm getting bagginess in the lower back too, you're saying if I request darts it'll change the shape of the shirt? Also, here's a pic of me wearing the shirt for anyone interested. I have the "batwing" effect, as well...
OK so I loved my trial shirt, and made an order for 2 more. I got them, and noticed right away that one of the two shirts had sleeves 2cm short. I e-mailed them with photographs comparing to the proper length shirt, to a tape measure, etc. and they said they would get back to me. That was several days ago, no response yet. After actually wearing the two shirts, I noticed the upper chest/shoulder area felt more restrictive than my trial shirt. So I measured the...
