Other than the rise on the pants looking long and maybe just a hair wide in the shoulders (see how it looks like the pad hangs over your arm), pretty good.

Second suit from Indochino. Navy chalkstripe flannel. Quite happy with it for $299.

What do you mean by rise? Think the pants are to long or short? I think I may add an inch or two in the legs, it looks tight in the picture but is not when wearing them. I thought the shoulders were good but I will pay attention to it next time I put the jacket on.

Rise = U rise. The distance from the front of your belt line, down and across your groin to the back of your belt line. It loops in an "U" shape. Hence, U rise.

You think it is long too? I have never even given it a thought. I will have to look into that. Thank you.

From what I can see in the picture, you either has short legs or you are sagging your pants a la cholo style. Pull them up and take a pic of just your pants and a shirt so we can see ho high the rise is. Also, the shoulders are about 1/2 inch to 1 inch too wide for you. Look at the guy who posted below you. He has pretty good shoulders. Looks like someone has fine tuned their second order. fing02[1].gif

I have not put the pants back on yet but when I was wearing there, the crotch was kind of baggy. I am about 5"11 so I do not think it can be short legs. I do agree the shoulders do look a little wide in the picture. Thank you for all your help.

I think it looks good. I see a few minor issues especially with the trousers which you might address on your next suit but overall I don't think you can complain too much for $299.

 

I love these new flannel type fabrics coming out of China and I don't understand why we don't see more suits sold in them. Kudos for going with the double breasted as well. Something else we need to see more of.

Simon, anything wrong his pants you would like to share?

As I have a V-taper that basically makes it impossible to buy OTR (and I slouch my right shoulder which you can see quite clearly from the pictures), I've resorted to online MTM for the time being and although I didn't expect much, I decided to give Indochino a try. The first results were as expected i.e. not good. So I'm going to order a re-make and I'd appreciate any additional input regarding what should be changed and how much.

I also ordered a shirt (the one I'm wearing in the pictures) and if my overall feeling for the suit is that if I get the measurements right, I'd maybe consider ordering again from them in the future, for some reason I'm most likely going to steer clear from the shirts.









So here are my opinions about what's off, I'd love to hear yours.

Shirt,

* wider collar, really tight right now
* narrower sleeves, taking more in in the biceps than by the cuff
* take a little in in the body as well
* it's kind of bunching up right now on the back, near the collar. Should the back be wider or do they lower the collars on shirts or what should be done to avoid this?

Pants

* a slightly lower rise?
* narrower legs
* order un-hemmed and get cuffs

Jacket

* maybe not so obvious in the pics but my biggest gripe is the bunching up happening behind the collar - so lower the collar?
* narrower shoulders for a more natural look
* take it in in the chest as well - there seems to be some excess fabric on the back?
* take it in in the biceps - quite a lot of excess fabric there
* raise the arm hole a bit
* rotate the sleeves.. inward?
* the length seems okay to me.

So what do you guys think? Did I miss anything? Overdoing it? smile.gif Another thing is how Indochino would be able to accommodate all this and how to translate it into inches in specific places that you input on the site.

Pants
* a slightly lower rise? - do you mean longer rise? I thought it might be a little tight as it looks like you have a wedgie. But I'm not staring at your junk anymore.
* narrower legs - doen't look bad in the picture, but does it feel like there is a bunch of extra fabric? maybe you could just do a slight taper below the knee.

Jacket
* maybe not so obvious in the pics but my biggest gripe is the bunching up happening behind the collar - so lower the collar?
* take it in in the chest as well - there seems to be some excess fabric on the back?
----a tailor may be able to help with cleaning up these items. And a good steaming.

* narrower shoulders for a more natural look - shoulders look ok in the picture but I don't know where they fit in comparison to your actual shoulder, is it overhanging by a bunch? how much? A tailor can't make this area smaller. so you would need a remake if you want to change this part.

I think you could also taper the waist just a hair more. This can also be done by a tailor. My first impression was that this isn't as bad as you are making it out to be. It's a good start. Obviously up to you and how it drapes and moves with you and what you are comfortable with.

It's hard to tell from the picture but they appear to perhaps be a little wide in the hips and the legs seem to taper into very tight at the knee and then widen again giving a flared effect. However it could just be the picture or the fact that the trousers simply need a good press. Overall though I like the suit

My thoughts as well. While reading his suggestions I started to think that after some of the proposed alterations the suit may become rather tight in some areas.

I kind of noticed this from the pictures myself as well. That the impression I got wearing it was worse than when looking at the pictures. However I do think that the arm scye could be smaller and there's a significant amount of excess fabric around the biceps so I will have it remade. Maybe seersucker is more forgiving in photos than in person smile.gif So yeah, I'm going make some alterations to the original measurements but maybe not everything I listed as indeed it could go from too big to too small.
