Indochino suits? - Page 161

post #2401 of 3208

Sorry for the horrible 'teaser' photo. I recently ordered my first Indochino suit, and I am very happy. This is it fresh out of 700

 

the box. No more pictures, and no full body because pants need tailoring (needs more taper, not really their mistake, I just like slimmer legs)

I think the leg of the pants are too slim.>>wearing this canbe tricky as they can easily alter the shirt.

You can make that call after seeing 30% of his leg?

I'm assuming you're with elitesuits, and if so, knocking your competition is in poor taste. Elitesuits could take a lesson or two from IC by cleaning up their website. I couldn't spend more than two minutes on the site without getting a headache due to the endless rambling and the ordering process is arcane. Let the product speak for itself.

 

If you read Simon's response carefully, he wasn't knocking Indochino's fused suits because Elitesuits offer fused suits as well. He was just saying he doesn't like to buy fused suits for the reasons of blah blah.

Ok I'll correct you. Indochino suits are not half canvassed. I know where they have their suits made and know how they are constructed. Perhaps you should read this

 

http://www.indochino-review.com/2010/05/indochino-suit-construction-canvassed.html

 

Furthermore, I made a comment on fused suits and the general suit buying public's reluctance to pay a little extra to buy a higher quality suit. I nowhere mentioned Indochino. The fact is I'm a bit of a fan of what they do, believe they sell good suits at good prices and more likely to stick up for them than knock them. As for knocking competitors in general if you read my comment I think you will find that I actually praised one. There is enough room for us all in the industry. Those doing it right will prosper as Indochino have clearly shown. Those that don't will fail. It's how markets work.

 

Your comments on the website are noted and I agree completely. In fact I wrote a blog article on the subject titled "We Know Our Website is Crap"

So he's completely against fused suits and would never buy one, but he doesn't have any issues selling them? Kind of hard to follow that logic...

Not really, he understands that some guys just don't care about how the suit is constructed and looking for something cheap regardless of why it is or is not a good idea to do so. So he's really just responding to his market.

Here's a direct quote from the article you posted: "Indochino states to have fused & stitched interlining, according to the terminology established above, this would correspond (mostly) to half-canvassed suits." What am I missing?

post #2411 of 3208
It's a bit of a controversial topic. Indochino does use it's own technique and it's not exactly a half-canvas construction in the traditional sense. It's a kind of half-canvas using some fusing.

Hi all, apologies if this has been covered, but I'm considering the essential gray suit and choosing the slim notch lapel as opposed to the normal.

 

Does anyone know the width of such a lapel? I can't find it listed anywhere

post #2413 of 3208

does anybody know if the difference in price is worth the purchase for their more expensive lines?

 

I've heard their essential line's fabric/feel is decent and fits the price but I'm wondering if their more expensive suits are noticeably better?

The Vincero suits are actually really nice. Italian Reda fabrics, Bemberg lining (more breathable), better quality collar felts are worth the premium if you can afford it!

Not sure of the exact width, but I believe post 2329 of this thread has a slim notch lapel if you'd like a visual.
