Indochino suits? - Page 132

post #1966 of 3212

I actually got the indochino suit I ordered this weekend. It's the olive cotton suit, intended as a stopgap suit for the next couple months. It looked terrible out of the box but everything seems put together properly, and the jacket fits quite well.  It was my first order from them so the cuff buttons are unfinished, they sewed them on in kissing fashion almost right on the opening hem of the sleeve. It looks hinky as all hell. I suspect however that once the suit is pressed and they move the buttons it will look much better.

Are you the one who started Indochino Review? haha. Good to see you on SF too.

I got my charcoal 3 piece the other day and quite a number of things are off.

Here are some pics:

For sure: Thighs ares too tight and will need to put in an extra 1 inch.

 

Shoulders: I feel that I need to take off 0.5/1 inch

Chest/Stomach, is wayyyy too loose, probably 2-3inches

Jacket sleeve length: Do I need to make them longer? I know my shirt is a bit long as it is off the rack

Pants length: Extend another inch

 

Is there anything else that jumps out at you? I think the jacket length is good as I can do the "wheel borrow".

First off, never button the bottom button.

I would say your shirt sleeves are way too long not just a bit. The jacket sleeve might be about right, or perhaps just 1/4 inch too short. They should come to (or part way overtop) your wrist bone (the bumpy bone before the fold of your wrist).

Shoulders maybe 1/2 inch too big.

2-3 inches reduction in the chest and waist seems excessive. Even a slim-fit suit should not be nearly as tight as you show when you are holding it wrapped around yourself.

Pant length looks ok, it's a personal preference as some like only a small pant break and others like more pant break.

Should show a pic from the back too.

@mystix - take a little off the shoulder as you suggest. I'd only do a half inch on the pants length especially if you keep those chunky shoes. As Zen said, probably need both a shirt that fits and a touch longer on the sleeves.

What do you guys think about the hips of the jacket? From the front it looks like he needs to slim the hips measuerement, but then from the side he's got gangsta booty and a smaller bottom of the jacket could flair more around the behind. You may want to stick to double vents.

I do think the hips would need to come in just to keep things balanced with the shoulder reduction; that's a tough call, though. The chest as well, by a bit (about an inch if the shoulder is coming in by a half inch), otherwise they won't change the shoulders, based on my experience. I'd leave the stomach though; Indochino's waist suppression tends to be excessive. The sleeves are hard to tell because of the shirt sleeve being too long; but it also looks like the opening at the wrist may be too large (based on last pic).

I would just do half an inch on the pant length as well; but that's just my personal preference.

Is that lapel doing some weird creasing? Of am I imagining things in the third pic?

And, agreed, a back photo would also be helpful.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! This is my first real suit for job interviews.

 

I took some more pics with a "better" fitting shirt

Here is a pic without a shirt to show the length of the sleeves relative to my arm.

My shoulders are weird, I wonder if I need to indicate that..

Should I be measuring so tight?

I am thinking of sending these adjustments into be remade. Any opinions?

Bump for any advice!

post #1974 of 3212
The suit looks better overall in those pics.

I would only add 1/2 inch to pant length as others have mentioned.

I think the sleeve length is actually spot on. You just need proper shirt sleeve lengths. If you feel you must then add 1/4 inch at most to jacket sleeve.

How tight do you want the suit? Super euro tight? Or just slim-fitted?

I might just reduce the chest 1.0".

Your other adjustments seem about right.

I'm no expert so take that as you will. I've got two IC suits and went through some adjustments and the jacket of my second suit was perfect out of the box.

Hope that helps. Keep us updated!

Hey Zen, Thanks for responding!

 

I will go with adding only 1/2 inch to pants length.

 

After hearing how my jacket length should reach my wrist bone, I too think the sleeve lengths are fine.

 

For fit, I want something equivalent to "slim fit jeans" but not "skinny jeans". I think I gave the misconception that I want it super tight from the earlier pics. I just wanted to show the excess space in my chest and stomach area.

 

How much room should I have for at the front? Right now I can stick a Pringle Chip Can and there would still be excess room. For jeans,  I heard good fit is where you can stick a finger between you waist, is there a rule of thumb for suit jackets?

This suit looks bad. The shoulders and skirt measurements are very off, which makes you look like an hourglass. Your coat sleeves should be 1/4" to 1/2" longer. it also appears that the sleeves are attached at an angle that's not natural for your body.

The trou are too tight in the seat and thighs, leading to that wrinkling.

Coats should fit comfortably and not restrict movement too much. Your coat looks like the chest and trunk measurements are decent, as is the coat length. Everything else looks off by a lot.

I don't understand this criticism, I am not even sure what I am looking for. Can you explain this a little bit more?
post #1978 of 3212
In the photos from behind there is a lot of bunching and creasing where the sleeve meets the coat. It may just be an odd stance or lack of pressing. I'll let someone with far more tailoring experience opine further.
post #1979 of 3212
It's been months since I viewed this thread... I kind of wish I didn't. There are some terribly fitting suits posted here...

This is the only example I've seen that is decent: http://www.styleforum.net/forum/thread/52943/indochino-suits/1740#post_4402819

But even then he needed a very competent tailor to fix the shoulders.

After I got the remake, I then took it to my tailor to make some adjustments on the shoulder. I didn't like how there was no padding and it didn't help that they were roped shoulders either. So, my tailor put in a thin shoulder pad and fixed the shoulder so it laid flat.

LawrenzL has suits that fit alright, but he's ordered many suits from Indochino and is quite the exception to the rule.

Please, stay away from Indochino.

I'm trying to like this suit, but the more I look the more I'm with Luftvier (even though my approach to waist suppression and cut appears to be different than his, from his pictures). From the front I like it from top button and up, hate it below there. From the back the shoulders appear to be too wide, and the skirt is flaring way out. Personally I would add to the jacket length if this is for a standard business setting. Can you steam this thing before posting more pictures? Hard to tell if the wrinkling is because the fabric doesn't flow well, or because it's, you know, wrinkled.
