Has anyone tried requesting they make a "40R" or something with slight tweaks? I feel that way you might get a better make.

Return in the same box, do USPS First Class, should be $13-20 depending on how much fabric is in there (weight). I got a quote from UPS just for kicks when I was mailing mine back--for it to arrive the NEXT DAY woulda cost only $18 (from New England). How in the f'ing world did he run up a $70 shipping fee?

I think that's a great suit, sonick. I don't think its that short and a bit fashion forward. More or less that's about my ideal look.

Put my Ultimate Gray Suit in the tailor's today. It's my second indochino suit and its much better than my first attempt by a country mile. Pants were perfect and the only stickler was the waist of my jacket. I wear a 30-31 inseam but I put 33 as my measurement to compensate for any glutonous dinner parties. Plus, its what actually measured anyway with the video guide. Still it turned out to be a bit too roomy. Unfortunately, the tailor said that they could only take about 1/2"-3/4" off each side to taper it a bit more. Probably justifed for a remake, but its something I can live with. It really didn't look too bad and I'm reserving judgement till I see the final product next week.

All in all, I'm happy with the indochino measurements once the waist is modified and looking forward to buying some of the more expensive and detailed suits in the future. Stupid cat tore up my black suit so another one added to the list.

I would honestly consider finding a different tailor.

Anyway, I received my remake (and fitted shirts) yesterday in the mail! Plenty of time to get any adjustments made by my tailor, but all in all, it seems to be pretty spot-on this time. The shoulders are now perfect, natural shoulders look much better on my frame, and the functional cuff buttons are a nice touch. The pants need a little shortening but the waist is much better, and I'm actually going to have to get my first vest altered because they mistakenly used a liner back for the new vest instead of the fabric I had on my first (I asked them to change the vest lining color to burgundy, and while they did change the inner liner, they also changed the backing, which wasn't what I asked for).

The shirts fit very well, except for the arms seem a little long, and the sleeves seem a bit roomy for selecting the "Slim Fit" option. Torso fit is good, IMO. Also, they used the wrong monogram type on the white shirt, but that's a minor qualm.

Pics tonight, probably.

PS: Indochino launched their new linen collection today, thoughts?

Considering the navy linen. I've wanted a navy cotton suit for a while and the 55% linen/45% cotton blend sounds appealing. Plus, each piece would make a good stand-alone for summer (or longer in CA.

Anyone have any current coupon codes? Willing to pay full price ($349) but would obviously rather pay less or get a free shirt, which I've wanted to try out at IC for a while.

And what color liner do you guys like with a navy jacket?

Unfortunately, there are no current coupon codes unless you already have a Groupon; they've also come out and said they don't have plans to introduce any new coupon codes any time soon. You could probably find someone willing to part with their Groupon for a decent price.

For the liner, it's really personal preference. I opted for a burgundy liner on my dark navy Indochino (Hedonist Navy).

Wow Sonick. I love that fit. Did you measure according to the videos on Indochino's site?

I personally like the shorter suit since I'm only 5'6" and believe the suit should be proportional to the person. I've tried on suits according to traditional rules and personally I don't think it fits me too well.

Thanks. Yes, I followed the Indochino video measurements to a T.

I still had to get the stomach/hips taken in about 1 inch to reduce the skirt flare and for a better silhouette, and the sleeves shortened half an inch.

My initial reaction to the new linen suits was disappointment: I really liked some of last years linens (Monte Cristo!) and I was hoping for similar options this year. The ultimate kakhi suit seems okay, but the others aren't really doing it for me.

I am a hard size to fit and would love a linen suit but this thread makes me hesitant to try these guys out.

For those of you who have had bad experiences, did you follow the measuring instructions to a T? I am hoping that this is the difference.

Am I the only one seeing a different looking fabric for the jacket and pants on the white linen suit?
post #1725 of 3201
Picked up my Associate 3-piece remake from my tailor today, I think it looks substantially better than my original suit. I'll post some pics soon and put them up here.
