Indochino suits? - Page 184

post #2746 of 3209
Does Indochino also have an option to send them yiur best fitting suit and let them duplicate the measurements? I would do that in a second.

Yes.

Has anyone requested a Skinny fitting suit from Indochino and gotten a good result? I went to the traveling tailor exhibition and she took my measurements having requested a very modern/skinny/tapered result.  A little hesitant to order until I know whether or not they follow-through with an appropriately skinny suit.

Are you talking about just a European Tapered look logikel?

post #2750 of 3209

Yeah...skinny throughout the pant leg and tapered at the opening....with very little break....kinda GQ/euro style

 

any success in achieving this look via indochino?

I'm about ready to order my first. any reason I should have belt loops on a custom suit? Seems like the pants would look sleek without them.

When I bought my suit I asked for a specific leg opening via email and they got pretty close. You can lead them to the taper you want based on the thigh, knee and ankle measurements.

If you're convinced you don't want to wear a belt with your suit, I'd recommend that for a first suit you still get the loops; you can always have them removed later. Wear the pants around the house beltless on several days, both immediately before and after a meal. If they fit you VERY well each time, sitting at the same height (the best way to tell is either by relation to your navel or by how much break you have), then you can get those removed or get pants with no loops.

Is consensus that center vent is the way to go?
I'm going two button, ticket pocket, functional buttons on the sleeve, notch lapel, flat front pants.

Vent is a personal preference. You can also get side adjsuters.

If there was a consensus on vents, it would probably be the other. As it is, I prefer two vents, but it's a matter of preference.

lol...let me know how that turns out.

I don't have a "skinny" suit but i did get a super fitted/tapered one. It came out almost exactly the way I wanted. If you want some pictures, I can take some if you'd like.

Ok guys, I was wrong about my remake date and I still have about two days.  Here are a few more pics of me in my tuxedo (I realize again the quality isn't great and I'm sorry, but it's the best I could do right now).  The last picture is of me in just a t-shirt and shorts to give a good idea of what my actual build is out of the suit.  The shirt is studded but I don't have studs yet so the three button areas below the collar are undone.  Please ignore the shirt sleeves getting caught in the jacket sleeves in one/some of the pics.

 

My thoughts:

1. Jacket: too small kind of everywhere I guess.  Should definitely be a little longer, right?  Just not sure how much longer.  Also thinking of adding a little to the chest, and definitely a little to the waist and hips of the jacket.

2.  Shirt: way too tight in the chest (even at rest with my arms by my side, the button holes for the studs at the top are pulling away).  The sleeves are actually a pretty good length.  The length of the body of the shirt is at least 2 inches too short, maybe more (which may be partially why it looks so bunched at my waist in the pics without the jacket....it's so short it's riding up and almost untucked I think).  

3.  Pants: honestly they feel like they fit me almost perfectly.  I know you can't get a good look at the bottom of them in these pics, but I don't think I'll make any alteration to them (or if I do, I may just get the part below the knees tapered like a half inch).

Any help is appreciated!

I know this isn't what you were looking for, but I strongly recommend heather grey undershirts.

Was the ankle measurements something of the past or is that something you just sent to them in request for the specific leg opening? I took the plunge and ordered a suit and was looking to get that "tapered style" with the pants as well.
