Indochino suits? - Page 156

post #2326 of 3216

@lalaland:  

 

Nope I took those when it's straight out of the box.. hence all of the wrinkles.

 

This is my third suit from them so that's probably why it fits better.  I am happy with it except for the armholes.  They feel really restrictive and much tighter than my previous order, which was before they switched to the digital patterns.

 

Anyway, took it into the tailor a couple days ago.  He is opening the arms a little bit for me and letting out the back a little.  

 

Thanks for the feedback!

Hi everyone! I have been lurking this forum ever since I decided I wanted to buy my fiance a custom made suit. After reading a hundred pages of this thread and being thoroughly impressed with all your expertise, I finally bit the bullet and bought an Indochino suit for him in the Essential Charcoal, hoping that you fashion savvy men would be able to help me out in the fitting of this suit. It finally arrived today and I made him try it on so I can immediately take photos and post here to see if I can get some feedback on what needs to be done. I know nothing about men's suits and he is a total newbie as well, so we would appreciate any advice/critiques. Also, please let me know if your suggestions requires that I have to send the suit back to Indochino for the adjustments or will taking it to a local tailor be fine? We are clueless (so clueless that I cant even rotate two of these photos on this forum - sorry!) and appreciate any help! Thanks!!! :)

Thanks all!!! (Apologies for the sideway photo -- I didn't know how to rotate it) :)

^I'm not a fan of the stylistic choices but ignoring that, the pants need to be shortened, he needs to wear WHITE shirts given his skin tone (that grey shirt is terrible), and that bottom button should probably remain unbuttoned. A higher shirt collar and a good pressing to the suit and he'll be good to go. Stylistically, I would have gone for wider lapels and more open (cutaway) fronts to suit his figure. Overall not bad though.

Thanks Svenn! Yes, you are totally on point! I couldn't put my finger on why the outfit didn't seem right until you pointed those things out. You are so spot on! As per your suggestion, we are going to find a higher collared white shirt for him :)

 

Also, is it a minor alteration for a tailor to open the front more and widen the lapels? Or will I have to send the jacket back in to Indochino? Also, do you feel at all the pants might be too tight or tapered? He said he is not used to it being so fitted in the crotch area, but he's also never owned a custom made suit before so we thought maybe he just needed to get used to it ;)

No, you can't widen the lapels, once it's done, it's done. And opening the fronts would probably be pretty expensive as well. The lapels also don't have enough roll; they stop pretty high above the top button. Looking at the lapel width in proportion to his shoulders, as well as the back shot, I do also wonder if the jacket shoulders are too wide. The pant width doesn't look to be too tight; generally speaking, tailored clothing will be more snug than what most people are used to. It's not bad for a first effort. But, that being said, the first suit is kind of like the trial. So, if it was me, I would apply for a remake with modifications.

Would appreciate some critique.

If I may, the shoulders seem a bit too wide, maybe about 1/2 to an inch? Also, from your side profile, maybe because it's your posture, it makes your posterior look a bit large. Also, do you always secure the bottom button? Overall, i think the sleeves are too narrow. Can you move about freely?

Was this MTM or is there a return option? The jacket is more than a little short.

@dancingfeet - how tall is this guy? The jacket looks pretty long compared to his arse, but then his arms keep going and going.

Hey Everyone!

 

First time poster! Wanted to get some feedback. Got an Indochino suit for the first time. Pants need to go back because they are a bit tight, but I am debating whether or not I want to send the suit back or just have it tailored locally. I am 6'5" 165. Wanted to grab everyone's thoughts! My biggest complaint is the pulling at the bottom of the suit, but there are a few places of concern. I attached the photo so it is easier to view. 

 

+1.5" Sleeves

+1" in the Body

First time poster, first time Indochino

 

Would like to here all critiques on my new Indochino I just got.   Let me start with some notes....This is my first M2M suit.  I have wide shoulders which always made OTR suits look weird on me.   That coupled with recently loosing 22lbs and figured it was time to get new suits.  Well here it is straight out of the box.

 

 

First off the Shirt.....This is not an indochino shirt....The shirt they sent me was way to small (I almost popped a chest button)    Not even sure how I remeasure for it.   Anyone have any Ideas??

 

The Jacket

DSC_0235.jpgDSC_0241.jpgDSC_0243.jpg

 

First thing I notice is the button pull in the front.   I assume that is what is causing the pulling in the back as well?   Is this something a tailor can fix?   What about sleeve length and jacket length, does it look ok? Lastly the shoulders feel good (I thought they would be to big when I sent in the measurements) Any thoughts?

 

The pants

DSC_0253.jpg

 

First they are to short (I think there is enough to let out), but the main concern is they are tight on the thighs, I couldn't even tie my shoes.   Remake??

 

 

Lastly  am I suppose to cut the thread on these things?  Im not sure what they are

Thanks
