Indochino suits? - Page 128

post #1906 of 3209
Theinternet, for what it's worth, I think the suit looks good on you everywhere else. You should have gone with a remake and added an 1-1.5 inches to the jacket waist.

Landshark, thanks for the comments. I think you are right. In the future when I order from them I will do this (probably 2 inches).

Most people want the jackets to be tapered at the waist, unless you want an old school American sack suit. i glanced back at the pictures and it doesn't appear to be too extreme to my eye, which is why I was inquiring about hot tight it fit. But it should fit you how you want it. Perhaps in the future you can try adding an inch or so to your measurements.

Front & Side. My linen cotton suit arrived today, what do you suggest? So far the only big problem is when i seat and put on my shoes, bending my knees stretches the pants to the point i fear to break them, like if the pants' knees were put too hight or too low compared to my actual knees. Notes: Didn't realize the vents were stitched This shirt sleeves are long, the jacket's sleeves end around my wristbone Didn't realize the jacket seated bad around my neck until after.

I'm not a tailor; but my best guess as to why this is happening is that the armpit of the suit is not inline with my anatomical armpit, causing it to be squeezed inward when I stand with my arms at my side. This may mean that the chest/shoulders need to be brought in a little; but I'm a little worried that doing so without adjusting the jacket hips would make me look too big at the hips. 3. There's bunching occuring at the sleeves on the side. 4. I never realized how much lower my right shoulder is compared to my left. 5. People will probably say the jacket length is too short; but I'm actually ok with it due to my short legs. I probably wouldn't want it much longer than what it is now. 6. I have no idea if the vest length is ok or not. I'll bring the suit to my tailor and see what he thinks; but any other comments would also be appreciated.
I got my remake yesterday; I got them to lengthen the jacket .5" and the pants by .75" and shorten the sleeves by 1" as well as slightly reduced the shoulders and chest a little. Also, the bunching that was at the shoulders is no longer there. There are still some QC issues: the pants waist is narrower for some reason (so I better not gain any weight anytime soon) and the pants are actually now a little too long but those are pretty easy fixes. But, overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

^ Looks pretty good. Something looks a little off in the shoulders to me...not sure if they're too big or what, but it looks like they're bunching a little bit in the back shots, where the shoulder meets the arm at the top of the back.

I also got a Timeless Charcoal 3-piece and Light Grey 3-piece recently, I just haven't had a chance to take some good fit pics yet. But they turned out pretty good, the fit is pretty similar to the Associate 3-piece remake I got a month or 2 ago.

1) Chest is too tight.
2) Jacket is 1-2" too short
3) Sleeves ARE short. Your shirtsleeves look OK, the coatsleeves don't.

It looks overall like that coat was made for someone a size or two smaller than you, and about half a foot shorter. Ask for a remake; there's not much that can be done to fix it, IMO.

Yeah, that's something I've noticed in all of my suits. I think that it's partly due to the chest possibly being a little too big; but I also think a bigger part of it is that I tend to stand fairly upright, with my shoulders drawn back (I'm relatively self-conscious of my posture). I spoke with my tailor about it when I got the first suit; but he thought that it wasn't too bad. Or rather, he was more of the attitude of not trying to mess with it too much because you never know how changing one area may screw something up somewhere else (I got the impression that he's seen quite a few Indochino suits). For myself, I can live with it as it's not too big of a deal for me.

I ordered a charcoal Granoro from ehaberdasher as well so I'm looking forward to see if I get the same bunching happening with that suit also. I'll post pics of that when I do get it.

Dang! Working the 3-piece motif! Glad to hear they've turned well. Some pics would be great.

I tend to do the same thing when I stand in pictures too...maybe you're holding your shoulders up and your arms back too straight instead of letting them hang naturally, so it looks like it's bunching in the back.

I'd definitely like to hear a review of the eHaberdasher suit after you get it....I was thinking of getting a medium grey Granoro from them as well.

Yeah, I just like the versatility of the 3-piece. You can always wear it without the vest, but I like knowing that I can dress it up to a 3-piece whenever I want to. The most recent one (the light grey) is with my tailor right now getting some minor alterations done, so I'll try to get some pics up by Wednesday or Thursday next week.

Thank you for your reply, i will soon bring it to a tailor to have it checked. The jacket lenght seems ok with the cupping test, strange, i wanted the sleeves to end at the wristbone and they kinda do, and from there to show half an inch of cuff, so i'll have the chest checked, i have the problem mentioned before of the jacket's armpit not matching my armpit. Here are some more photos. Side without stitches on vents and back. Indochino's 14 days from shipping to ask for a remake limit is a pain in the ass considering half of that is what it took for it to get here.

I have a question for JeffreyD, are you still reading this thread? I have a 1-year-old Indochino suit that I would donate for cutting open and examining the suit construction & quality - would you be interested in doing that? I'd send it to you of course.

I'd be really interested to see this as well...I'm sure he'd be able to let us know if they're passable for the price point or if they're just utter piece of crap

FWIW, I'm very happy with my Indochino suits regardless.

@Italo For the pants: It's likely your front rise is too short on your pants. It may also be that your hip measurements were too low. Either way, this can be fixed. I'm sure indochino must put a little extra fabric in case you need to let those areas out a little.

@facet: remake is a lot better!
post #1920 of 3209
so who was the one that was at my tailor's with two indochino jackets trying to get the sleeve pitch or something fixed... and was unhappy that it didn't come out perfect. You paid $400 for online made to measure suits and expect the sleeve pitches/rumpling to be perfect?!?!?!?!?
