The chest, back and shoulders are a bit bigger than they need to be, but overall, it's a lot better than some of the others that I've seen.

They all fit great and their customer service is probably the best service I have ever dealt with.

 

Hope it all works out!

 

Edit: I did some research on Proper suit. It seems like it would be very good if you live near one of their locations. My closest location is Chicago, and thats still a 6 - 7 hour drive for me.

 

 

Just got my remake a couple of days ago and this time they did a better job. The fit is decent. They seem to have followed most of my remake instruction well. But I still want to get some opinion from you guys just to make sure everything seems good. The only thing that bothers my a little is the hips of the jacket, I know I wanted a fitted jacket but the vents seems to stick out a little, what do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also do I cut the string from the armhole flap ? The string in the picture below:

 

 

 

 

Thanks again

It's decent. Why the fxck is your bottom button done up? The pants are obviously a problem. The jacket has no shape, but it seems to fit alright....could stand to be an inch longer.

I just had a quick question. Does anyone have experience with Indochino's Chinos? I was thinking of getting the La Boca Navy Chinos but have not heard much of their chinos. Any input is helpful. Thank you.

lol I thought it would be better for you guys to see if the buttons were lined up or not. What is wrong with the pants? Are they a little too long? I think so too, I might get 1/4 - 1/2 inch taken off. Also what do you mean by no shape? 

 

On a side note does anyone know if I should cut off that string on the armhole flap?

 

 

Thanks,

Not referencing this last guy's suit in particular, but have to say... the more pictures I see of these Indochino/other "MTM" suits, I'm pretty sure I'll keep buying OTR suits and go with whatever minor tailoring is needed.  Seeing some of these abominations makes it clear to me you're better off actually trying on a suit and seeing how it fits you.  

post #2632 of 3208

I think these threads are ridiculous.  I have not seen a single person post a picture up and then have someone say, it looks great.  You're gtg.  Wtf?  How often are you staring at the mirror wondering if one button is 2cm too far to the right.  

 

Just cause it's MTM doesn't mean there some perfect amazing fit.  

 

You suit looks great to me.  Pull your pants up a bit and you're GTG.

No. You should wear the suit the way that you normally wear it (bottom button undone). The pants are too long. IMO, they're a little too full and could stand to be a little slimmed from the knee down, but that's just my taste. When I said that the jacket has no shape, I meant that the sides of the jacket are straight lines. The jacket doesn't go in at all at the waist. Think about an hour-glass. You probably don't want your jacket shape to be THAT dramatic, but it's the basic idea.

YES! That's the word that I'd been looking for, hahahahaha!! I ordered one suit from them, and the fit was indeed an abomination...Traveling Tailor my @ss.

That's because I don't want to lie to the man. If you want to look like an average guy, then "you're GTG." If you want to look good in clothes that fit, then make a few adjustments.

Made to measure implies a better fit than OTR (Off the Rack). People do not generally get MTM unless they (A) have extremely unusual measurements, (B) have lots of $$$ to burn, (C) want something more than they can get at a store, or (D) want the prestige of saying they have MTM. The majority of the posters aren't (A) or (B). They aren't getting C, and there is no prestige (D) in a $400 MTM suit, especially when it fits worse than a garment that same buyer could get at a local shop. The critiques, such as Vinnymac's, are simply people being honest with the wearers, who are posting at their own peril and getting the community's opinion.

Also, a button 2cm too far to the right is usually the least of the wearers problems in this thread. That said there have been some posts of suits, even in the last 10 or so pages, that have got the "GTG" response.

I know what u mean by the pants being too full, I wanted slim fit pants but there were no options that I've seen to make that request. Maybe I should had requested it when I did the remake in  an email because there were no special options sections that I seen to make this request. I get what you about the jacket having no shape, I took a chance at one of the coupons deals to get a suit from them and I have to say it hasn't been the best experience but its ok for the price I guess. I am definitely going to one of the local MTM shops in NYC to get another suit so a tailor there to get my exact measurements lol.

What was the coupon worth, and what was the price after discounts?

I get that people post at their own peril but I just feel like people could stand to be a bit more positive.  I posted a pic not on this forum for my indochino suit and people tore it apart and made me very self conscious about my decision.  I was past my date for getting a remake but I did take it to my tailor who basically told me everything looked fine to him.  All my friends and family loved the suit and everytime I wear it I get compliments.  I also rave on the fact that it cost a fraction of what some of my other OTR suits costs.  So, I guess I'm just a little bitter about online community critiques.  I'm not here to change the world, just saying it'd be nice to keep things positive.
