Look at the shoulders in the pic and see how it drapes on to the sleeves. It juts past the natural shoulder.
The one inch was not meant as a definite number, but more an approximation. Don't take everything too seriously mate!

But in his defense, the shoulders do look a tiny bit wide in the pics posted. They seem to jut out past the natural shoulder line. Then again, the pics aren't high-res enough to make any firm declarations one way or the other. If I were a betting man, though, I'd bet on the shoulders' being slightly wide.

+1.

I dunno, the waist looks off to me. Too much suppression? It makes your hips look unnaturally big.

Funny you should mention this, as I recently received a blazer from indochino and this was my first observation.

The construction and fabric is decent given the price, but the waist suppression deters me from ordering another. According to the website, the waist/stomach region of the jacket can be expanded by up to two inches. Do you think letting this out and perhaps bringing the hips in slightly could mitigate the wide hips effect?

Having just looked over the Indochino website extensively today for the first time, I can say that it all looks quite good, but I do think there are better online MTM services out there, with more options in terms of fabrics, styles etc.

Something looks very odd about the suit. Its seems to fit you well but the proportions are all wrong.

Did you get that rug from Target? I think I have the same one. lol.

It appears to have too much waist supression making your hips look quite wide and rather feminine. The fact that the photo's are poorly lit and the suit is of a dark material only emphasizes this.

What appears to be a square toe. They are hated by the forum.

could this be because of my own measurements? my chest measures 35 inches, my waist is 29 inches and my jacket hips area measures 36.5 inches. My problem is because my waist is so small, most suits look baggy around that waist area, i like that this one doesnt.

haha, yes they are square toe. duly noted. anyone recommend a place online or in the washington, dc area that I can get good belts. Again, because of my 29 inch waist, its hard to find decent belts in my size.

You could always take them to a cobbler and have them remove a few inches (from the buckle end). It is a minor expense.

Overall, this is a good fit, much better then most others I have seen. Nice!

Personally, these are the changes I would make to the suit:

- The shoulders are too wide. Have them about 1 inch smaller on each side. Something to keep in mind next time as now it will be hard and pricey to alter.
- The sleeves would be slimmer all around.
- The leg of the pants would be slimmer, and they would be cropped a bit more to not give the slight break/bunching at the ankles.

Also, I really can't tell but it looks like your bottom button is done. The rule is to keep the last button undone....

Hope this helps.


One inch on each side is an OUTRAGEOUSLY large reduction, fyi.
