Indochino suits? - Page 158

Indochino are an online service with their suits made in Shanghai while Propersuit appear to have a more personalised service. They seem to arrange to have you measured then arrange the production of the suits.

 

To me the only reason I'd go with Indochino is the price. However, $650 for a full canvas suit made with decent wool with them providing an onsite service looks very attractive. I think it's the way I would go

 

I have dealt with the guys at Proper Suit, they were very professional and I'll be ordering another suit from them this week.

 

No full shots unfortunately, but you should get a sense of the fit, which is spot-on.

Found this thread after already buying a suit/shirt/tie deal and have come to respect the sage advice and critiques delivered within.  Hoping you could shed some light on the fit of this linen suit since it's my first (middle aged man here with not much need for a suit but I have two weddings to attend soon).

 

I'm 6'6" and 180 pounds so when I read about MTM it seemed worth a try.  Everything feels tight in the arms and around the chest.  Pants seem okay but I can't squat down in them but I don't know if that's standard for fancy pants.  Please let me know what problems you see.  Thank you.  P.S. I'm planning on buying some dress shoes.

The pictures are too small for close inspections. But I've noticed your shoulders are at least 1/2 inch too wide for you. It's "lipping off" your shoulders. I would ask for a remake with a more relax fit since because of your stature, you can afford to go "wider". Also, I think your jacket is a tad bit short. Good luck.

Thanks for the photos AdamJD.  The suit looks great in the shoulders which seems to be one of the hardest areas to get.  Based partially on the photos on the forums here and the lack of any negative reviews anywhere from owners I've booked a fitting for this Saturday.  I'll be back to give my opinions on the fitting and will be sure to post photos when the suit arrives (mid August I would guess)

Checked around the company website first but did not find what I am looking for. Does indo give you the option of sending them a suit you own to use as a template to copy? I feel this would help fix many of the problems with their suits, provided you already own 1 well fitting suit.

The pants are too tight in the rear.

Hello everyone!

 

I've been lurking around this thread and Indochino for a about a year.  Finally bit the bullet a couple of weeks ago and ordered my first suit from Indochino with the Thrillist deal - Suit + Free Shirt & Tie.

 

I went for the 3 Piece Essential Charcoal Suit, White Wrinkle Resistant Shirt, and the new Superhero Houndstooth tie.

 

I'm not very impressed with the quality of the tie and probably wouldn't order one again from Indochino. Luckily it came free with the deal!

 

The shirt is OK, the materials a bit thin and I don't think it's worth the $99 advertised.  I suppose if you can get a bit of a discount on them they're not too bad.

 

The Suit on the other hand I think is a bargain.  The material is much softer and luxurious than I was expecting having read other reviews.  I think the fit is pretty good, perhaps 1/2 inch to wide in the shoulders?  I've attached a few pictures below and would be grateful for any feedback on fit etc....

The shoulders looks about 1/2 to 1 inch too wide. The sleeve pitch seems to be off.

 

Hopefully this helps. http://putthison.com/tagged/Jackets

I agree that the shoulders look a bit wide, more so from the rear picture than the front. Sleeve pitch just seems to be an IC issue. In theory I guess they try to account for this when asking about your posture, but this is an issue we've seen in a lot of examples. Overall I think you got a pretty good outcome everywhere else.

Wear shoes next time.

Enjoy the fitting. Their shoulders are very nice, really lightly structured. Check out this review I found, they have nice detailed shots of the suit.

 

I ordered my second one last week, and from experience it's a 4-5 week wait.

Whoops, double post.

I'm about to order my first Indochino suit. My GF measured me yesterday following their video guide. We took all of the measurements twice. Most of the measurements came within an inch of their "best guess" based on my height, weight and body type. There were a few that were several inches different, but we double checked and ours seemed correct.

 

I'm going with the essential gray herringbone 3-piece with the following differences from the default options:

 

Slim Notch lapel

Dark purple lining (gf's choice)

Vest normal with collar

 

I was going to go with pick stitching but the gf didn't like that look.

 

Any last minute suggestions before I submit my order?

Barrelbtrigger, CousinDonuts,

Thanks for your responses, very helpfull and much appreciated.

I'm going to apply for a remake with 1/2 inch off the shoulders and ask that the sleeve pitch be rotated forward (I think), I'm going to send them the pictures too so they can use there judgement.

I'll let you know what happens....

I would send pictures of your stature and body type ie. you in a shirt and shorts for them to get an idea.

 

Good luck and let us know how it turned out. Oh, what really helps is posting your pics in the official fit thread. Just search for it. It should pop up.

post #2370 of 3209

Can someone post armhole measurements of their IC jackets, and also provide the bicep measurement you submitted?  I'm trying to decide between TaT and IC, and the arm/armhole appearance is crucial.  I have skinny girl arms, and want a tight fit/look. TaT appears to win in every other aspect, but the arm measurements are not customizable. Every jacket I've ever seen, touched, or worn is ill-fitting in this respect.
