Indochino suits? - Page 182

post #2716 of 3209

- cousin doughnuts

 

 

Thanks for your input. My tailor could not let out the waist. He basically told me to return it and get a bigger suit. Then he can work with it. I had some advice to add +4" to the hips and +4" to the waist and also +0.25" to each shoulder. I might add +1.25" to the length of the jacket and +0.5" to the sleeves. I might go with that and see what happens.

Will do, once I get around to slimming the pants a tad, I'll take some HQ photos from different angles.
Thank you, also smile.gif

Please do.

 

Hopefully I can use it as a realistic template ;).

Just got my suit remade (first suit on page 173, post 2590). What do you guys think? Do I still need any changes? It seems like the shoulder pads are a bit thicker after the remake even though I requested natural shoulders.

First of all looks pretty good. If I was picky, then;
1. Less shoulder pad and more point to point
2. Less chest. At least an inch less.
3. Lengthen jacket at least 1/2" (this is for future jacket lengths by the way as you have no option now to lengthen). Sorry to those that will scream at me for suggesting longer but it should be!

Put that in place for next and will look better..

To my untrained eye, the tough thing here is that the moderately roped shoulder might just not match your sloped shoulder build. Since we can't see how it moves with a static picture, any snugness or lack of is for you to decide. You appear to be a stocky guy and I suspect it will be tough to get everything exactly right in all areas without infringing on proportions somewhere. I think you have a good start and after you wear it a few times you can see if there are other tweaks to have your tailor make, then note for future orders.

Always wear shoes if you're asking about pants fit.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I think this turned out well. Maybe ask your local tailor if he could help the draping in the back (profile pic), but otherwise, good stuff.

@sullivan025: thank you.  this is the essentials gray 3-pc suit

 

@ CousinDonuts: thanks for the feedback.

 

Just wanted to get some unaided feedback before i shared my thoughts.

- i wasn't too sure if the middle of the jacket was too tight in pic 1 (top button).  can't tell if it's too tight, the result of the vest underneath, or a case of being a bit chubby up there.

- pic 3: the vest seems a bit loose by the gut

- pic 4: blue shirt seems rather big around the arms/biceps

- pic 4: not sure if you can tell in the photo, but when the top button is done up on the blue shirt, there's a a slight crinkled opening (hard to explain - think of a women's blouse and you can barely see her bra).  not sure if that's normal or fixable

- pic 4: the pants pockets flare out a bit.  it's hard to see based on the pic, but not sure if that's also normal or the case of me having wide hips.

 

overall, i think i'm happy (this is my first suit purchased online) but just want to get second opinions on if this needs minor alterations or a complete remake

 

happy to hear your feedback on my feedback.

Most of my flat front pants that are tighter thru the crotch have flaring pockets. I figure it has something to do with my build and gait, so I personally don't think twice about it, but if it bugs you it bugs you. If you get a complete remake you open pandora's box again. The shirt can use some work so if you send anything back send that. Take the rest to a local tailor and inquire about what tweaks could be made.

HEY COUSIN D.

If your pockets flare out then the trousers are too tight..
or you have a belly below the belt.

I am at a bit of a loss to see so many people still using this company. From all the feedback of how inconsistent they are in getting the measurements right and the questionable quality of the materials and construction there seem to be a lot better options out there.

Yes, these prices are low but 300 odd dollars on an ill fitting suit of second rate materials is money thrown away.

Please correct me if I am way off here.

@ a tailor - your opinion would be welcome due to your profession.

And fwiw I would love to see this company succeed as it is from my hometown - but SuitSupply, Benjamin, hell even Wizard of Aaah all seem to be dramatically better options even if some are a fair bit more money they are still entry level suits after all.

That's not all that sticks out, and it drives the ladies wild.

I think its that the people who bash on the quality could just be used to more expensive suits. For the price, it might not be the best quality, but I've seen much worse. I've also seen people through around the idea that they have many satisfied customers who just don't bother posting on the internet about it. Probably the biggest draw is that although many have problems, one may hope that he gets his measurements right, they can have a good source of decent fitted suits for not too much money.
But I'm biased. I just ordered a suit today in Grand Central. rolleyes.gif
