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.

Sounds good. Before and after...

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?
36R and S should have the same shoulders are you srs or are you a f'in troll? gb2 4chan
Angie contacted me back and assured me they are dedicated to helping customers achieve the perfect fit, so they will give it another go with their "master tailor" personally looking at my comments and an Excel spreadsheet I made with all my measurements on previous orders and how they fit, specific quality issues I had, etc. Someone posted that they got a $4M investment infusion and this may help with quality--I hope this is true.
OK so I got a 2nd re-make from Indochino a while back, and it came totally unwearable. The hips/thigh were so tight you could see my privates... The measurements were inexplicably changed after I confirmed them via e-mail to Angie, and some measurements which were inexplicably changed to a larger spec arrived SMALLER than the previous garment with smaller spec. Today I decided to measure the sleeve just for kicks because I was wondering why it seemed so long. Turns out...
In some parts of the country, wearing more than mesh basketball shorts and a tee shirt gets your sexuality questioned.
So I got my 2nd re-make from Indochino. They made some of the changes I asked for, but overall the issue was CONSISTENCY. Their tailor changed some of my requested re-make measurements, for no apparent reason! Maybe they thought I wanted it too tight, but no, some of their changes made it even slimmer (knees, wrist). The bicep got increased randomly, and so did the thigh measurement. The thigh went from 17.25" --> 17.75" (did not request that), but, the '17.75'...
^Hmm, very interesting. You should take some pics, it would be useful in communicating to Indochino as well. I think we're on to something here. Is one of their tailors consistently doing something wrong, the same way on every suit? Indochino should pay us for free trouble-shooting
@Beetlejuice: I hope I don't ruin your love for your new suit, but man, did you see that chest funkiness goin on? The reason I pointed this out is because my re-make came with the exact same problem, on the exact same side of the suit! Was fine on the other side, just like yours. we probably got the same tailor, who did the same thing. It's like a ripple of the fabric which doesn't lay flat, and pinches into the right (left side of photo) armpit as well. I...
