Experience with Executive Custom Tailors?

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Anyone have any experience with Executive Custom Tailors (www.executivecustomtailors.com)?  They are offering a Groupon right now for $399 for $1,114 worth of suit, shirt and tie.

 

Before anyone gets all uppity about MTM suits, I know the risks ... just wondering if any has ever dealt with them and their experiences.  

 

Thanks

It's a little suspicious that the two people praising joined the forum in the last few days, but who knows. Anyway, I think you can mitigate a lot of the issues with unknown tailors if you are the assertive type who can really go through every single detail of the suit and make sure they are very clear on your preferences. Bringing pictures help a lot too. Some would probably argue that it defeats a lot of the reason why you'd go to a tailor since what kind of a tailor needs to be "forced" to make a "good" suit. Ehh well it's probably the tradeoff for getting a lower price. If you are not very knowledgable about suits and your own tastes, then steer clear.

There is nothing suspicious about it, these two and the OP are merely trying to advertise this firm, may even be the same person. it is quite unlikely that TWO newcomers will be so satisfied with a firm that has NEVER been mentioned on here before.

Hopefully no one will fall for this crap.

Under their guarantee, they claim to have yet to make a remake for any of their customers. To me, this doesn't say that their measurements/tailor is perfect but rather that those purchasing MTM items will have a difficult time dealing with customer service/returning an item in the event that there is problem. And let's face it, there will always be issues ordering MTM online, even if you are being measured in person.

They mention "premium material" a number of times but I see little explanation on the site. No idea where and under what circumstances the suits are actually made.

Suit models look very Indochino-esque.

Also, is it me or do the shirts/pocket squares match exactly on the home page? Pretty classless, no?

The very name "Executive" is a bad sign.

No, but it is as has been said, that TWO new members turn up at the same time to praise an unheard of tailor...Think about it.

That is simply naive. When you have been a member for some time you will learn of the disasters that have afflicted all to many who have gone for MTM online. "Adjustments" have included remaking as the suit simply does not even fit or resemble the measures supplied or tailors that simply ignore the problem.

Online MTM can be described gamble - with the odds against the buyer - at the most polite.

You're absolutely right. Though you've only been here for 7 seconds and haven't posted any detailed info or pictures I decided to throw caution to the wind and have faith in my fellow man.

I've ordered twenty suits. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I can't wait for my sartorial masterpieces to arrive. fing02[1].gif

Thanks bub.

Either way, ill be at the westin this week getting a new suit. 

Well let us know how you get on... remember, pics or it never happened.

Myself, I'm not in the habit of handing over large sums of money to complete strangers in hotel rooms.

I was googling them and this thread showed up so I thought I'd check to see if anyone end up trying them out?  Any reviews on the product quality and overall experience?  They posted a suit + shirt + tie deal for $399 on Kijiji Daily Deals and are coming at the end of July. 

 

Overall I'm not buying what their guarantee is selling.  First, they haven't had to re-make one suit.  They must be really good if that is the case, or maybe people are having a hard time getting a hold of them, afterall there is no phone number or mailing address listed on their website.  I know quite a few people who had their Indochino suit's remade, and I've had heavy alterations made to a Maxwells suit.  It's nice that Executive gives you the option to take the suit to a tailor of your choice to have any defects fixed, but as a repayment, they will give you upto a $50 credit towards your next purchase... what if you don't want to order from them again?

 

Also, I understand that this is a fairly new company, but I'd expect that there would have been more reviews on the WWW for them....

 

At this point my gut is saying stay away, but hopefully someone can reply back with legit reviews...
