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...

Surely then I wouldn't want to increase yoke more,...
In some parts of the country, wearing more than mesh basketball shorts and a tee shirt gets your sexuality questioned.
^They e-mailed me my coupon code, and agreed to apply it to my existing order.
Do you guys know how the Facebook Like 20% coupon works? I "Liked" them and subscribed to their e-mail list, but I did not get e-mailed my coupon code. I already placed/paid an order, you think they'd let me apply it?
I definitely would like to order more, but I take it they purposely offer no plain white fabrics below $60?
I got my $20 shirt today, first try measured off some cheap Korean shirt, I think my ModernTailor product came out beautifully. The lining/interfacing of the cuffs and collar do feel flimsy (I don't know why ppl say it's too stiff?), and I will be tweaking my measurements a little, but overall it was great. Lots of you complained about poofy sleeves, but mine came out very slim: I am 5'7" 125lb. 37chest 28waist for reference
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...
