SERIOUSLY EVERYONE ON THIS SITE: Don't EVER buy a suit from HarrySuits, I ordered one online and the order came late, the fabric smelt badly and it was of extremely low quality. I had to purchase another suit from a local retailer because of this, I tried to explain that I would not want the suit to go into production because it wouldn't arrive in the timeframe that I required it for but there was no reply from 'support' and the suit was produced and sent to me. I had let them know even before the suit was beginning to take shape. I demanded for a refund but again, no reply. Therefore, I lost alot of money on buying 2 suits and I ended up with a smelly rough ugly suit which was most definitely not 'hand crafted'! Think again before ordering a suit online, and I would seriously recommend purchasing from local tailors/retailers. Don't trust dodgy sites!
Does anyone have feedback on "Harry Suits"? - Page 2
I have ordered a suit from HarrySuits.com and I believe I received an outstanding value. The best feature is the fact that the suit fits better than any OTR suit I've tried in the same price range. I have a few OTR suits that have been tailor to my size but the resulting look isn't as clean as having a MTM suit cut to your sizes from the beginning. I measured myself three times and used garments I already owned to get a realistic idea of what measurements I should be submitting before I ordered my suit, and I could not be happier with the fit. I will admit that I was extremely nervous about the process as i've heard about many overseas retailers that take your money and are never heard from again, but this was not the case. I had asked HarrySuits to provide a boutonniere loop on the back of the lapel on my online order and they immediately followed up with a request for images and additional details to ensure they added it properly. From my last correspondance, they now provide the boutonniere loop on all of their jackets. Also, they are constantly adding more fabrics and linings.
Of course, a service that provides a fully outsourced custom fitted apparel will have its down falls. As I said previously, I was nervous about the potential loss I would incur should they run away with my money so I went with the cheapest fabric with the Polyester/Rayon blend. Please be aware that this fabric type feels and looks cheap, cheaper than the synthetic blends you can find in stores. With that said, following what "onhermis" said, the fabric did smell, however, I chalked that one up from the fact that the garment came half way around the world from India and was completely polyester. All fabrics have the tendency to absorb smells and polyester itself has an unappealing odor. To remedy this, I treated the garment with 50:50 blend of vodka and water with a spray bottle to help kill any bacteria and absorb and evaporate odors without the artificial clean smell that spray cloth deodorizers can leave behind. This definitely helped the strength of the odor and it has disappeared over time. I would guess that the other fabric types will lose the odor much quicker as the fibers are natural and breathe better. Also, there were a few quality issues that I did notice, however, these were not deal breakers. Firstly, the finishing quality on the pick stitching was slightly off in that three individual stitches on the right lapel were slightly raised. Also, the button hole stitching isn't finished as cleanly as there are a few frayed threads visible. Finally, the arm holes are low much like all OTR suits I've tried on, however, they are not low to the point of being constricting or looking absolutely ridiculous. I imagine the only real way around this is getting extremely lucky with an OTR suit (highly unlikely) or spending hundreds if not thousands more on a locally tailored suit.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with the product and will be ordering again given the overall cost. I believe the only way to get great fitting suits any cheaper is to fly to the far east yourself, finding a reputable tailor and have them measure you in person.
I ordered a suit for my brother's wedding.
The key seems to be getting the measurements right.
I'll admit that my pants were unwearable and my jacket is a terrible fit - in their favour, I rowed competitively for 15 years so I've got a non-regular shaped body.
My brother and the other four grooms men also ordered from Harrys - and their's were perfect. Good length on sleeves and pants, fit that was snug without being restrictive.
One of the other members who had a successful order mentioned that he got a tailor to measure him before placing the order, I'd suggest the same. My suit was poorly fitting but the quality of the fabric at $250 was acceptable, I've got a couple of Boss and a Zegna and they're nothing like it, but they were also 6+ times more expensive. I'd give them a go again but next time I'll be getting a professional to do the measurements.
I am a new forum member and poster simply because I never had anything to post before, even though I have been reading the forum for some time. I had a really horrible experience with Harry Suits. I ordered a suit and the fabric samples. The only thing that went right was the samples. They arrived in good time and are of reasonably good quality considering the prices.
I ordered a medium gray, 2 button suit in super 130's worsted pure wool. First time through I followed their instructions and self measured with the help of my wife. A disaster due only in part to our ineptness in measuring, it was simply unwearable. True to their word, they offered a complete re-make. This time I went to a local shop and had my measurements confirmed. The re-made suit had so much wrong with it that it also is unwearable. When I was asked to review my order on the Harry Suit website, I did so and pointed out specific faults, mostly on the suit coat. I was then asked to send photos of the problem areas, which I was happy to do. That was two weeks ago and I have not heard from them again, and as one might suspect, my review never made it to their web site. I took the coat to a local shop and for $130.00 they will make some alterations where possible, but they still cannot guarantee that the coat will ever look right. I am not likely to have this resolved in my favor, and am posting here so that others considering Harry Suits will know that the 5 star reviews on their web site are not the whole story.

Well, against my better judgement, I ordered a suit from HarrySuits.com .... a light grey three piece wool suit.
I'm still trying to get this resolved, and if they do manage to fix it, I'll post the results. I haven't pressed the suit or taken it to my tailor for resizing and we're not going to address the poor fit right now. But, just to give folks a warning... Here's a brief list of what's wrong.
