The common complaint from the fat man wearing a suit. Not to say you're obese, but that's exactly what I hear from my fat friends. I know they secretly appreciate the trend and style...but they tend to dismiss it because it's clear they can't pull it off. First step in looking good in a suit? Looking good naked.

well ill be honest, my dad was in the custom clothing business for 40 years so i know a bit here and there. the fact is that the new trendy style of slim fitting, narrow lapel suits is simply a trend that look s good on younger men 20-35, who are lean or in shape. The point im trying to get across is that a company emphasizing on "custom-fit" should not limit themselves to simply producing a single style of suit. most men in america are fat...and unless they wanna look like jackie gleason, they better stay away from skintight suits with narrow lapels. personally, i like the trendy new style for myself because im 5'8 155lbs, fit.

Staggering, unrepentant vapidity. Me, I've had a pretty slight build since I was in high school. The fact is, pants that pull at the crotch are grossly unattractive. A tailored leg is fine, but all things in moderation.

Looks like the 25% off deal is back (from redflagdeal forums)

25% off ANY suit, plus one free tailor-made dress shirt, one free accessory (a tie or a pair of cufflinks) and free shipping with coupon code REDFLAGDEAL at Indochino.com.

I am seriously contemplating trying them out for a basic navy suit. Trying to decide between Indochino, The Wizard of Aahs and Retail (yuck).

Tempted.

I just decided to order from Indochine, with 25% rebate and the exchange rate dollar/euro it's quite worth a try (especially as you can get a refund if it doesn't fit). I have been in contact with their customer service quite a bit, because I wanted clarification regarding the measuring and the final result. They told me they are constantly refining the process and the info about leaving 4 inches off to get a tightly fitting suit is definitely outdated. They clearly recommend to stick to the process as laid out in the videos on their website. I have suits and shirts from Knize, a well known and bloody expensive tailor in Vienna - they fit like a second skin. I am well aware that the quality of Indochine will be nothing like Knize, but you can expect an honest and qualified opinion about Indochine's product, once it arrives

Their navy fabric is extremely lightweight. Spring & summer only. I wouldn't recommend it as a year-round suit. Their navy pick-stitch fabric with the higher thread count is even lighter.

Having just ordered a navy suit from them, I'm actually kind of glad to hear this, as I live in the south.

Opinions on this fit and any alterations I'll need?

I have to admit the suit settled a bit from my initial opinion and does fit better but I still want a tighter fit














P.S. posted my own thread also, my mistake.

blazingazn, looks pretty good to me overall, just the shoulders and chest are considerably too big in my opinion! How did you input the measures?

Shoulders are tricky to measure... you're usually wrong the first time. - Mike

I have also noticed that Indochine's website calculates "auto suggestions" for measurments. For me, it was exactly what I measured in 90% of the cases (well, my bum is a bit bigger than it was caluclated to be...). How does that reflect your experiences?

Did they follow your measurements or make their own additions? I was very close to buying a suit from Modern Tailor this week until I read this thread and saw the coupon from Indochino.

Does anyone know how Indochino suits compare to those from Modern Tailor? It seems Modern Tailor's suits are gaining ground on this forum, but very limited on the feedback after they are delivered.

Does Indochino have a telephone number for customer service?

Heh. It said my biceps were freakishly small.

But I'm tough. Scrappy!

Their customer service ("Angie") is very responsive, via email, if you wait a day. I assume they are in China.
