I like the body fit...but I'm not totally sure about the neck fit...it seems a bit loose to me (compared to my other MTM from Holt)...and I had noticed that they were 0.5 inch higher on the website measurements than at the tailor in person. I know the general rule is put in two fingers for neck size...but this one almost seems like a MAC truck could drive through...might upload a picture or two in the next day or so for a second opinion on whether to get the neck brought in or not.


It will shrink when you wash it so don't make any decisions until you've washed the shirt a couple of times at least.

Only then he cannot have them remade (only for unused items).

How much shrinkage might you expect with the shirts (for those who have ordered from them)?

 

I've attached two photos of the fit...as I said...if it would shrink, I'd be super happy as the body actually fits me...but I don't want to wash it and lose the chance to remake it if it won't shrink enough. Apologies in advance for photo quality...1.tiff2.tiff

Yeah, that does look quite a bit too wide in my opinion. I'd remeasure my throat and compare it to the measurements online, then reduce it by probably 0.25 or max. 0.5 inches (but that may already be too much). The shirts most noticeably shrink in the sleeves (length), I haven't noticed that much shrinking on the collar.

By the way, have you chosen the slim fit option? Depending on your preferences, of course, but you could also reduce the chest measurement by quite a bit.

You are the exactly the type of person who is appropriate for this service. A 34s is an unusual suit size essentially impossible to find OTR. Worth the inevitable issues.

Maybe some of those members expect too much for that price range. To be honest, the material for the suits and the sizing is good for an online Chinese MTM company. Many times, I think these these off-measurements can be attributed toward the customer not knowing how to measure correctly. You might not think this, but measuring with accuracy requires a lot of skill. I can see why Indochino adds an additional .5-1inch towards certain area's because I'm sure they don't trust the consumer with accurate measurements. Adding those few inches protects their tailors and buyer.
With that said, no suit can really be perfect unless a) you were there, in person, for the measurements and b) a fully bespoke suit. Because we know it's Indochino we'll have to choose with option a. I take full advantage of their $75 tailoring credit. When I purchased my first Indochino suit– the fit was slightly off. The waist was 1 inch too large, the sleeves were 1 inch too long and the pants were more than 2 inches off. I opted out of sending the outfit back for a remake because I wanted to be physically there for the process of tailoring my suit. So, I researched the best tailor I could find and spent an additional $100 on having the suit perfected. In reality after the $75 they gave me I only spent $25 on having the suit tailored. In total I spent a grand total of $400 dollars wow.gif
When I was younger, I was stupid and listened to guys from Menswearhouse. They told me what to buy and what looked good. I bought an OTR suit which didn't fit me at all. The shoulders were too large, the fabric was heavy, waist, legs, and crotch, had no shape. They called it the "American cut" I called it poorly dressed. I spent about $700 that day on crap. I'm a petite guy, for a better fit, I wear a 34s. In America, it's hard to find a 34s. If I were to purchase a bespoke suit it'll cost me about $1,200-2,000 and if I was really ballsy and go to Savile Row, about $5000. For the money that I paid, with additional tailoring, I got a badass suit that none of my friends own.
If I could, I would buy a $100 suit and spend an additional $200 on tailoring. But that will never happen. To me, it's all about the fit. Lets face it, we're all critical here on how we dress and how other forum members dress. But in reality, 80% of the people will not know that the suit is not fully canvassed or that the suit is not super 120. To fully appreciate Indochino you need to go and get your suit to the reputable tailor and get it tailored. You won't regret it.

Need to post a picture but ordered the three piece navy suit and non iron white dress shirt. Everything fit well especially the dress shirt. The crotch of the pants did need to be altered a bit but all in all my fiance and I are happy.

Yeah...I know that when they measured the neck at the traveling tailor, it measured 16.5"...but on their website, it was recorded as 17". I did e-mail them about this (as I was a bit concerned about this) and they assured me that the adjustment it was part of their normal process. I thought I choose the slim fit option...but it looks like that they didn't check that box off (or I didn't get it). Will remeasure and see the difference but I can live with the chest more so than the neck. Looks like a detour downtown for me next week :/

 

Thank you for the help! I do appreciate it :)

The pants and shirt are all slim fit. I wore this suit on New Years and probably got about 8-10 complements on it that night alone. Granted, these people are just regular people, not fashion aficionados, none the less, i'm quite happy with it.



I don't see anything wrong with it although the button stance is a bit too high for my taste but given the fact it is a short jacket. I would still lower the button a bit. I prefer the first button to be around 2 to 3 inches above my belly button.

Just got my indochino suit. Outstanding quality of fabric. Fit is really good for the most part (still a little bit too much waist suppression and the pants are about half an inch to an inch short *I think*). Will get them tailored. I requested them to lower the button stance compared to normal and got peak lapels instead. Posting pics in a min...

Looks good, 1up! I thought my pants were too short too at first, but you might want to try them on with lace-ups before you get them lengthened. You might find that lace-ups give the suit a whole new look. Otherwise, looks like you're about ready to go!

Looks good!! one of the best fits I've seen on this thread. I wouldn't alter the pants if I were you they look to be about the perfect length

Thx my dude. Your fit pic was the reason I ordered mine! Turned out pretty good! The length of the pants looks good in those pics, but I'm pretty convinced it's a bit short. (Very minimal, like 0.5"). And since Indochino pays for the tailoring I might as well get it perfected! Will try with lace-ups prior to committing though.

Received my 1st Indochino "Steve Nash Collection" suit today. Wasn't sure what the fabric would be like considering it's a basketball player range but it is actually fantastic. Nice 4 season wool that drapes well and is quite light. Here are some terrible quality pics straight out of the box (no creasing)

For the price I paid I'm quite happy. Only thing off is the trouser length IMO. I will probably get the seat let out a bit as the crotch seam was 1" shorter than the measurements I gave them.

Will I order from Indochino again? Most probably yes, fabric depending. I am an odd build (shoulders to fit a 42 jacket with a now 30" waist) and decent sized legs. For a Chinese online MTM suit for around the $350 mark I'm impressed.
