Moda Republic - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 14

post #196 of 238
Just wanted to chime in on my experience with Moda thusfar. I have been working with Chris, Alex, and their partners here in Vancouver for my wedding suit, and some shirts.

To say the experience has been a pleasure would be an understatement. As others have said, communication has been excellent, and I'm really looking forward to the finished product when it arrives.

Expect a detailed review - really looking forward to it!!

I have a couple of Moda shirts and they're pretty good, but there seems to be a lack of pictures on their suiting stuff, anyone got some pictures with fits and such, or reviews on those?

post #199 of 238

Hey guys! 

 

Here are some photos of more fabrics, this time striped ones. 

 

All of these are 2 ply oxford fabrics

Hi Isolation, it seems not many members have ordered from our store or at least haven't reviewed it. I can attest that we have had many happy customers in our store and do welcome you to come in and give us a try thanks!

Hey guys it's been a while, but here is some of our latest fabric selections! 

Again these are a continuation of our oxford pinpoint stripe series, hope you guys like it.

That last one looks exceptional!

I'll toss a proper review up on a separate thread and link it when I take some pictures later this week...

 

But, in the meantime.... I GOT MY FREAKIN' SUIT!  :slayer:

 

I'll admit... I might be a little excited...

 

**DISCLAIMER - I'm a total suiting noob, so I'll probably use terms which don't make sense, or are out of place.  Sorry?**

 

After 2 visits from Moda's affiliate in Vancouver for measurements and to look at fabrics, and an endless barrage of emails across the Pacific, it's here... after 2 days shipping! I wasn't expecting shipping THAT quick... now, that may have something to do with DHL, but regardless... wow.

 

I know a common complaint on the forum is a lack of suiting and shirt fabric options on the website - I truly hope they figure out a system to showcase all that they have, as I was overwhelmed by the choices laid out in front of me in person.  I seemed to end up with about 6 top choices every time I looked, so I had to close my eyes and point at one point...  Ended up settling on a Vitale Barberis Canonico lightweight charcoal, as this is primarily for my wedding... in greece... in the summer... :butbut:

 

First impressions opening the package - it was wrapped much better than the previous suit I ordered, and survived shipping well. The fabric was bang on, and the construction was flawless.  This is my second MTM suit after returning my first one to Indochino, and the differences are substantial.  Obviously, the half-canvassed construction will make a difference, but real difference was in the details.  Beautiful pick stitching around the liner, no loose threads anywhere, properly pressed, actually coming with a garment bag... the list goes on for a while. HUGE difference in quality... and I paid about the same.

 

Fit on the jacket and shirt are bang on, and only minor alterations to the vest and pants (mostly due to me dropping a bit of weight), which is great, but what I'm most impressed with is the cut actually makes me look like i'm wearing something other than a potato sack!  I've got a bit of a weird body proportion which kind of makes me look like a potato with some popsicle sticks for legs, but with this suit I actually look like a human being!

 

Can't wait for my other shirt to arrive (was remade just before shipping), and needless to say, I'll be ordering more suits from Alex, Chris & crew.

That's cool. Do you think you can take some pictures so we can see the fit?

Hi Neachdainn (real name withheld for obvious reasons),

 

We're so glad you enjoyed the experience! Look forward to seeing photos of the suit on you!

I recently got 5 shirts from ModaR as first time client and I have been delighted with the customer service I received from Alex and Chris during the process. They have been very flexible to work around my very tight HK schedules.

 

I paid HKD 500 each,  good value for what I got as a product. During the fabric selection and fitting, I have received honest advice and recommendations, which are, for me, as important as the quality of the worksmanship.

 

I will definitely continue working with them in the future and hope to get a suit from them next time...
