Indochino suit fit check (updated photos) - Page 2

post #16 of 29
The pants just do no fit your butt. They need the seat let out. Slimming the pants is not an option in this case if your calves are as massive as they appear to be. The jacket looks better in the new pics. The shoulders may be a tad wide.

This pretty much mirrors my thoughts. These pics look much better. Fix up the pants seat and leave the rest alone; it is wearable as is (messing with the shoulders on this suit is probably going to be a challenge, though I'd run it past a tailor in person). If you continue with Indochina, I'd have them narrow the shoulders a tad on the next suits and maybe lengthen the coat an inch or so along with the waistcoat, moving the button stance down with the lengthening of the coat.

 

Overall though, this is about as good as I have seen with Indochina.

2 more questions

Should the shoulders of the jacket be taken in?
How do you get rid of the wrinkles in the back of the thighs. It seems to me like it has more to do with the angle of the pants than the width. It seems wide enough to me and is comfortable enough when talking around and sitting.

They have agreed to a remake so they can lower the button stance (which they were suppose to do before) and the angle of the arms. I would like to know what other things I should ask them to fix.

I believe if you fix the seat, those wrinkles on your hamstrings under your cheeks will go away.

How would you recommend I fix them?

And what do you all think about the lapel width? Is it too skinny or does it work ok for a guy with my body type.

So far, here are some of the changes I plan to make.

Jacket
Lower button stance about 2" (should I do more than this?)
Shoulders -.25"
Biceps -.25"
Wrists +.5"
I think I'm going to leave the hips and stomach because I the vents sit closed when I stand in a relaxed posture and instead ask if they can do anything more to compensate for the straighter posture that I usually use. Hopefully they can at least fix the sleeve pitch.

Vest
Chest -.25"
Stomach -.75"
Hips -1.5"

Pants
Length -.5"
Waist -1.5"
Hips ??
Thighs ??

Still not sure what to do with the pants. Would adding a pleat help? I don't like the look of pleated pants, but I'll live with it if it allows for the pants to drape better.

This is a matter of personal taste. However, I'd go for something larger and more balanced looking. For a good example of a larger lapel with "athletic / fashion-forward" styling, take a look at Suit Supply to get an idea of what I am talking about.

 

However, you need to sort out the button stance if you go with a wider lapel. The Indochina house pattern seems to have a very high button stance, narrow lapel and short jacket as a hard default. Deviating from their pattern too much may lead to poor results. For what it's worth, the style of suit Indochina makes is exactly what they delivered to you. Love it or not (many here, myself included, are not fans of this look) yours is not a terrible example (once you get the pants fixed). You might just want to stick close to what you have and changeup your suit style when you get your next suit or, if you have changed your mind on the look, I'd cancel the remaining suits and go elsewhere.

How much should the pants be let out and from what area, the hips or the thighs?
Will taking .25" from the shoulders be enough? or should I try for .5"? I would rather err on the side of too big than too small.
I already lengthened the jacket from the first one and I'm worried that it will throw off the balance if I lengthen it any more. I am told that the bottom of the jacket should in general be at the half way point from the collar to the ground. Is that right?

Yes, I agree so I updated the photos with a more relaxed posture and decided not to mess with the body of the jacket.

But how do I fix the pants and how much should I take in from the shoulders?

I wouldn't trust a tailor to improve upon the jacket you already have. I'm afraid you'll have to live with the shoulder dimples, but I'm not an expert tailor. Everything else on the jacket is fine.

I would have the trousers slimmed a bit in the legs from the thighs down. That's not a tough one for the tailor.

And certainly have them shortened as well to have the slightest break possible.

I would wear khakis with pleats, but pleats on suit trousers are nothing to be afraid of. The jacket overs the waist anyway, so that's where pleats really come into their own.

Because of a mistake on the part of Indochino, they have agreed to a remake so fixing the shoulders won't be a problem.

As for taper in the pants, I just don't like the appearance of tapered pants and I don't think my thicker thighs and calves will allow me to go much thinner.

Yes, but will the pleats improve the fit of the pants as well? I don't mind the look if it will help the pants drape better. I am especially concerned about the pocket flare.
