i have bought two suits myself from indochino and am very happy. the jacket looks long to me. indochino suits tend to favor shorter jackets lengths, did you ask them to make it longer? yours look fine.
well, since my chest is 35" i made the shirt chest measurement be 38". i think the tightness has to do with the armhole being too small. oh well, lesson learned for next time!
i have been ordering some dress shirts from moderntailor. i do the method where i provide specific measurements not off my body, but off a shirt. they do a good job making them to the right specs. but here is my question, if the shirt is too tight underneath my armpits, where if I hold my arms straight out in front of me and the fabric gets tight and pulls under my arms. does this mean my chest measurement is too small? the reason i ask is i recently increased my half...
wow, i didnt think I was going to unleash all this. the pant legs arent skin tight, just a little fitted, actually perfect imo as they arent loose, but arent tight either. the waist was made to match my waist exactly, so it gets a little tight when i tuck a shirt in. in hindsight, the tailor should have made the pants waist a little bigger. when i tuck in a regular dress shirt, its not too bad, but when i tuck in a thicker, herringbone shirt, it gets a little more snug.

I have a pair of slim fitting dress pants and the waist of the pants pretty much contours my waist perfectly to the point where i dont even need to wear a belt (but do anyways as an accessory). Here is my problem, when i tuck a dress shirt into the pants, it becomes harder to zip up. So should I add an inch or 1/2 inch to the waist of the pants?

Does Indochino allow you to give special instructions in addition to them just plugging your numbers into an algorithm? Then one could avoid the adjustments and save the cost/time of ordering a second suit. "I want my pants skintight with purple sequins" The picture is a little misleading, the...

I always thought that its better for a gentleman on the shorter side to have a jacket that isnt as long in length. I'm 5'8" and I am pleased with the length of the jacket for my suit, it seems to stop at the bottom of my pants zipper.

You may want to narrow the sleeve at the cuff, as atailor suggested. Are you wearing a watch in that picture? How are the cuffs feel when you put a watch on? The cut of the shirt is too rectangular. When you increase the chest width, it will have a more pleasing...
I got my remade shirt. It looks like a winner, the chest is a little tight, but thats my fault, they made it to the measurement i gave them. But overall, its 1000000 times better than the first shirt they sent me. This one was re-made based on measurements from a shirt I own. Do the sleeves look too big to you guys?
