Does anyone have feedback on "Harry Suits"? - Page 3

post #31 of 45

I believe all the sub-$200 suits on Harrysuits are Terry Rayon or Poly viscose, so they are likely not going to drape well and especially if you are a bigger guy.  I wear some synthetic trousers but no suits even though for my size I probably could.  My Harry suit was a wool blend (super 120s) and the collar and lapels have no "support" but it drapes great and takes the shape of the body quite well (slim fit).  I think comparing a $200 synthetic suit to a $500 IndoChino wool suit is probably not fair.  I have never used indochino but for $500 I can get a nice wool/wool blend suit in some US stores on sale and get it fitted if it doesn't fit me very well.  In fact I bought a couple of suits and blazers at JC Penney (on line and in store) for $125 and the suits and blazers are fantastic...fit me perfect and fabric is not too fine (super 100s or less)..  I had bought the Harry suit for daily wear but probably not going to use it for daily wear since the fabric is too fine (plus it is a 3-piece)...I had gotten some super 180s wool blend suits made a few years ago and they didn't last me over 3 years with relatively minimal use (twice a month) and this fabric reminds me of those.  I'll see how my second suit goes, but seriously check out JC Penney if OTR fits you well.

I'm not going to risk spending $400 from Harry's when I know I can get a good one from  Indo for that price.

I think the wool suits on Harry start at $250 plus some obvious options get it to $275 for a super 120s suit (which happens to be mid weight), not even close to $400.  I was looking at Indochino since you spoke so highly of them and suits start at $429 for heavy weight fabric.  To get a light-mid weight fabric for all season use, the prices start at $600 and they don't seem to have a slim fit option which is necessary for me so that the suit is not too "boxy".  Not for me but to each their own ways to burn money.

I really feel like I've learned a lot from this thread.....

This thread is indeed painful, courtesy of the "senior members" who have not added any valuable or objective or even real information regarding the topic at hand; only sarcasm (possibly for the lack of a life).

So you don't think it's a bit odd/suspisious that the only people praising this company are a bunch of anonymous noobs?

post #37 of 45

I actually don't.  Firstly the reviews from noobs have gone both ways - some good some bad; some noobs have included pictures, others pretty detailed stories of their experiencies.  As for anonymity, I think it is prudent to give the least amount of info on the internet.  I think people are smart enough to tell which reviews are authentic which ones aren't - at least I don't need some guy who has nothing valuable to say, to go around pointing "trolls".

 

The senior members have not had any experience (or at least haven't shared any) and have gone around discrediting other reviewers - why are they even on this thread if they have nothing to contribute or ask?

Also, this isn't some super-famous forum with millions of members that someone would spend time trolling.

Believe me, there have been more than enough trolls and shills for various companies over the years. It's surprising perhaps how seriously this forum is taken by many companies, actually...

Is one of the trolls and shills called Harry?
post #41 of 45

Fair enough...maybe it is worth trolling on this site.  Anyway, just got my 2nd suit from Harry for $275 (wool blend - black) - not bad at all.  They fixed about half the nitpicky things I asked for (big one being zipper size).  Finishing is a bit worse than the previous suit with some thread ends popping up (easy to fix) and buttonholes a bit messy (impossible to fix).  I guess the finishing is a bit of a hit or miss.  All said and done, I think overall I am quite happy with my experience with Harry.  Fit is great and construction is good with finishing being a crapshoot.

 

Hope my comments help those who are considering buying from Harry.

Most newcomers seem to be trolling, most of their comments/questions are scarce worth reading. Newcomers praising unknown brands are pure shills.

Ok, first off, yes I am a new member on here and this is my first post.  I have been reading the threads and why all the conspiracy theories about only new posters/member only posting positive reviews or positive reviews being only bots.  Paranoid much?

 

Anyway I have ordered from Harry Suits and here is my review and opinions.  I will say I have ordered OTR, from Indochino, Harry Suits, and Astor & Black (I think they are out of business).  I will say the best fitting of the 4 has been Indochino, but it was also 2x as much as Harry Suits and the Astor suit was $1200 custom made and fell apart after only a few wears.  I don't get all the hate with Harry Suits.  I love mine!  I ordered an Irish Linen suit for an upcoming derby party.  Here are the pros and cons of Harry Suits:

 

Pros:

* Well priced and fast shipping - I got my suit within a few weeks

 

* Suit fit OK; Pants fit perfect - I got custom measured at a reputable tailor.  It required about $60 in alterations and now is totally perfect

 

*Fabric samples I ordered were true to the suit that was provided

 

* Suit seems well made to me

 

 

Cons:

* Website is shady.  Trying to order via CC goes through some weird linked site and is frequently down; I think I wound up having to use paypal which honestly scared me.  That being said the transaction went through and I have had no issues.

 

* Their website is down frequently and customer service only replies once per day and often does not answer all of your questions

 

* Alterations are given in a GC vs. actually paid to the tailor :(

 

Taking it all into account, I am happy with the 1 suit I ordered. It looks fantastic on me after the alterations I needed.  I have some questions for the guy who posted photos of the sleeve button issues he had. I can't tell what was wrong...

 

Anyway - I would definitely order another suit from them.  My 2 cents.

Another noob here.  Ordered a linen jacket from Harry about a month ago. Quality was very good, though I had ordered contrast pick stitching and they used the wrong color. Unfortunately the shoulders were a complete mess, stiff and peaked.  They make the jacket look like something David Bowie wore in the 80's.

 

Aside from that, I guess my idea of a linen summer jacket and theirs is rather different.  I wanted something informal and fun, but the finished result was highly structured.  Why would you put 3/4" of padding in the shoulders of a summer jacket?

 

Local tailor wouldn't touch it. Said the shoulder was integral to the fit of the entire garment, and they could never get it to look right. So I emailed Harry's and told them it would need to be remade.  I included photos of myself with and without the jacket, so that they could see the natural slope of my shoulders compared to how the jacket looks.

 

That was more than a week ago, haven't heard a word in reply.  I'll give them another couple days to respond, then I'll contact my credit card company.

 

Ordering from an online tailor was basically an experiment, but they offer a guarantee, so I expect them to honor it.

Post mortem: after ignoring my emails for about three weeks, I finally woke them up when I accused them of fraud and threatened legal action.  Then I got a reply to the effect "Sorry, this is the first communication we have received from you. Maybe some technical issue?"

 

So I went through the whole spiel again, with pictures and careful explanations for what I wanted, and what was wrong with the first suit.  Their response to that was, "Sorry, we do not make the kind of jacket you want."

 

I pointed out again that it was THEIR guarantee to remake my garment, regardless, and they finally agreed to do so.

 

I received the remade jacket the other day, and while it is not what I envisioned at all, it at least fits. Now off to a local tailor to see if we can beat it into shape.

 

My advice: stay far away from these clowns.

 

Final irony: I ordered a summer jacket from J Peterman that fits perfectly, right out of the box.
