You get what you pay for. OP, take em to small claims court, chalk it up to shitty business practices, thanks for the warning. I find it amusing that you're bitching about $200 for a SUIT, when that's about what many spend on MTM or even bespoke SHIRTS, not to mention trousers and jackets... Personally, if you're going MTM, you need to push it up to around $600-800 just to get started with something decent by a company who stands behind their product. However, I don't have a whole lot of experience in actual suits, just shirts, and this is based on reading/talking with other people. If you want $200 suit, head to Menswearhouse and get something they can alter in store for you and you can see problems/flaws in person rather than deal with someone over the internet in a different country.

OP, you are not going to find a single credible person on this forum that believes $200 can buy you a decent MTM suit. You are welcome to complain about itailor to your heart's content, but no one listening to your rant here was ever going to buy from them anyway, so it's not a very effective strategy for hurting their sales, which I assume is your goal in taking to the interwebs to criticize them.

Hahahha I've created such a mess here! I wasn't aware of the amount of losers that rip into people they don't know anything about online. This I the first and only thread I will ever start :-) have fun all u web tech donkeys battling each other on who has more ram and shit. I just wante to vent a little and achieved it. Have fun all you bloggers reading about other peoples lives instead of living your own. Beautiful thing is... This is probably all you have to do today. So good luck sucking! By geeks

So.. OP was a troll?

And I don't see much of a mess, maybe a dogpile, but frankly, the advice given is easily summed as:
You get what you pay for.
Open your eyes (and your wallet) a bit and you'll find that your expectations are more easily met
$200 for a MTM suit, unless you happen to be in-country and working directly with the tailors is a bit of a stretch to expect quality, much less good customer service.

It doesn't even have to relate to clothing. But you're discussing a $200 MTM suit (which makes me wonder if this should be over in menswear anyway) with many folks who also buy online MTM items, including myself. I'm happy that you posted your negative experience with itailor, even though I'm not sure I'd actually have bought from them in the first place (I would probabaly go with mytailor.com (since I've already worked out my sizing for shirts) or if I were typical SF-sized, Thick as Thieves). Expect to pay more than $200, either way. If you want a cheap suit, then RTW or thrifting is going to be your best bet. But if itailor sucks for you, why not try moderntailor? mytailor? there's a bunch of online MTM places to take your business to and who knows, maybe you can get something great for cheap.

I liked this.

On the plus side, all this talking about RAMZ and CPUZ and INTERTUBES got me a job that pays well enough to buy a real fucking suit.

I give this bit of trolling a C-. Poor effort overall by gregorygrant, though it showed some future potential.

The good points:
  • Seemed possibly sincere and simply in need of education - even had me doubting his trolling by the end
  • Managed to get a few responses - lots of threads by first-time posters fall off the front page without a reply

The weak points:
  • Posted in the wrong forum - MC might have gotten a better response
  • Revealed his hand too early - third post? Really?
  • Didn't push the trolling nearly enough - there were so many great places he could have gone with this foundation
  • Claimed victory before he had even scored a point - really that last post is just sad. A mess? Tech donkeys? Tsk, tsk. A thread needs at least 100 posts to be considered a mess, and the insult seems sort of like trying to insult Star Trek fans by telling them they spend too much time in the gym... it doesn't even make sense.

Hopefully he lurks moar, learns from some of our more esteemed trolls, and then comes back to try again. I have high hopes...

Call your credit card company and tell them you were ripped off.
That's what they're there for.

I did, it's just black. Not paid their website bill, they ceased trading, problem with the site?

Perhaps they put their customer's money into the website and not into making good suits?

I think you just did, thank you.

Sounds like you had a pretty poor experience, sorry about that. I did however read with great interest - I work for a company that's currently putting together a site with reviews for online tailors so would be keen to get a review together for iTailor. Will let you all know how it goes.

Some of the problems stem from the crazy amount of online MTM companies most offering a "perfect fit" guarantee combined with the bargain hunter in us all.  We all want to find a suit that fits for a price we can live with.  Speaking for myself thats between $300-500.  My expectations are not set way too high especially for the first order.  I expect alterations or a complete remake.  In my first gambit I had to get a remake because and only because of collar gap which a tailor they recommended said he couldn't fix it.  Everything else "wrong" with the fit was easy to fix.  For example;  lengthening sleeves, letting our the crotch, shortening the the pants, etc.  I'm waiting for my first remake.  I'm optimistic as the overall quality was excellent.  Now if they can solve the collar gap issue I'd buy all my suits from them.  Who:  Indochino.  They have excellent customer service.  The Style Forum site is excellent because no one here is shy about sharing their opinions I only wish they included actual pictures of the suits and shirts they're slamming.  And to all reading the site:  Do your homework.  Search the www and narrow your list of MTM sites to five.  Try to find customer photo galleries.  Take your measurements three times.  If they accept them send photos of yourself:  front, side and back.  Ask if they will take stuff like your right shoulder is lower than your left, etc.  Most of all be patient with the company you picked and expect to have to get a remake, maybe two.  If you picked wisely all our future orders will be spot on unless you gain or lose significant weight.  Good luck gentlemen.
