How to buy a suit at Indochino end of 2012

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've read thousands of posts in another Indochino thread that has over 150 pages. It starts years ago, and is still active. After hours of reading... what do I need to tweak on the "new" versus the "old" ordering method if I wanted to order today?

 

Do any of my measurements need tweaked? As far as I can tell, here is what I should request outside of the ordering system on the "new" system:

 

Request high arm holes

Lower the button stance

 

Is there anything else I can do to increase the odds of getting it right the first time?

Go to a bricks and mortar tailor of some quality. The road and this web board is littered with on line disasters.

Agreed....No matter how many disasters are posted, some knucklehead will still think that he'll be the exception. He'll be the one who beats the system.

 

The only suggestion that I can make is to take VERY careful body measurements, ask for a slim fit and ask customer service to tell you the measurements that they're going to use ahead of time so that you can make adjustments. Hopefully, that will be enough to get you into the ballpark. My experience with Indochno was a train wreck, but maybe you'll be the one who actually beats the odds, OP.
