Indochino worked ok for me because I was very slim at the time, and their very slim-fit cuts suited my frame. They would not suit a bigger guy, and don't be fooled into thinking that merely by adjusting a few measurements a slim-fit block can be adapted to fit a huskier frame. Disaster waiting to happen. You need to be seen by an experienced fitter.
Yes, of course. Regarding the Soft and Ivory, I haven't had a chance to compare them, but it brings up an important point; people forget that there are different categories and levels of make from every manufacturer. Just because one line is fully canvassed and has hand work doesn't mean all of them do, and doesn't mean that those lines won't change slightly from season to season. That's why I think the Working Hierarchical Whatever thread is flawed.
Sonya, if you don't mind, I think I will take this one.Full disclosure: I once worked for Samuelsohn and I now work for the company that owned Hickey Freeman until we recently sold it to Samuelsohn. So while my opinion may not be completely impartial, it is at least informed (in other words, they are my competitor).Samuelsohn is perhaps unmatched in the value/price formula on the market. With workmanship on relative par with Canali but at a substantially lower price, it's...
Tailors use unbleached cotton for everything.
Someone had offered a suit for dissection to that very end *cough*@MZhammer*cough*
The photos show the darts added to jeans- I always have to do it on mine otherwise I would never get any to fit. I don't know what it would cost but it takes about five minutes to do (forget about trying to do it on a domestic sewing machine, however).
Go up a size or two until you find something that fits comfortably around your hips, then have a tailor take a pair of darts out of the waist- this reduces the waist but leaves the room in the seat. He can go straight through the waistband so it's easy to do.
Problems with the armhole, problems with the cross-back, problems with the shape of the sleeve relative to the armhole.Very far.If wide shoulders or padding or structure had anything to do with divots, this guy would have sinkholes big enough to swallow a car collection.
This, too, is incorrect. Improper fit causes divots, not width or padding or structure. See Frederick Scholte and Tommy Nutter.
