Sure: follow their instructions! I found it worked well.

The only tricky part is making sure that you measure your shoulders correctly. Shoulders are ill-defined, so it is best to measure it from a jacket that already fits you "correctly". (If you don't have one, buy a comfortable one at a thrift store to measure against.)

(Some websites provide suggested "compensation factors", but the consensus seems to be the Indochino has tightened up some of their measurements, so these tweaks should not be used any longer.)

I don't know what it is about the shoulders. Mine look exactly the same as the picture linked to"‚ÄĚrumpled. That, and the fact that it seems to be made of polyester, is why I don't wear mine.

Huh? Seems to be? Is it polyester, or not?

Indochino sells suits that are a poly blend. Maybe those are the ones that members have purchased.

I finally got my suit, shirt and tie today! I'm going to put a full review incl. pictures up on the blog soon, so just some initial impressions: the fit is awesome! The shoulders are fine, jacket length is perfect - trousers fit without any problems and so does the shirt. The sleeves might be a bit long on the suit, but that is due to my inputs being a bit too much and can easily be fixed by the tailor. Perhaps I could also do with a bit more waist suppression, but that too is no biggie. Photos will be up soon, I'm sure some of the suit aficionados on here will point me towards some things that might not be perfect (yet) .

All in all, I'm very happy with what I got! I also got good news for those who read my blog, I'm going to do an email with Kyle Vucko, the Indochino CEO. More details on that soon

It was supposed to be a basic navy wool. It arrived shiny and feeling slick. Also, it had some ridiculously high "super number" selvedge sewn in the pockets, like "super 400s" or something. But the crazy shoulders would have been enough. I've tried to forget about it.

Got my tailors kit today.

Ordered Apr. 20
Shipped Apr. 21
Received Apr. 22 before noon!

Insane, must be expensive.
I'm glad i pick up these kit as they confirmed some materials are nice and others I thought would be okay are not so great.

Most of the coupons floating around the web do not work anymore.
free20, nextjump, couponswebsitenet do not offer any discounts

SAVINGS is still good.

anyone got a coupon I can use for outerwear, a trench coat?

Free20 was working yesterday and now it doesn't. I'm suddenly less interested. And Savings doesn't seem to be working now either

my review is up on http://bit.ly/suitreview
I'll add some more details and better photos soon, too tired today.

Lorenz, shoulders are a bit divoty (tm). Could use more waist suppression. Sleeves seem a bit busy, torquing? Also, a bit long for my taste. The pictures are not perfect in order to judge fit, details are obsured and there is no back picture, for example, but overall, it looks like a pretty decent effort to me. congrats.

Lorenz: Take some better pictures so we can make an accurate assessment.

It's really not worth it unless you use one of the 15-20% codes IMO. Free20 didn't work for me last night either

I really wish I dialed down my measurements a bit. Instead, I sent them my accurate measurements, and this is what I got. They really need an option for a slim fit. However, slim fitting or not, pretty much everything about this suit is wrong by at least an inch, and parts of it like the bicep, thighs, waist, etc. are really, really wrong.

that's what I said The suit is a bit crumpled from the trip, especially the sleeves and the back. I put it on the hanger and will make some better fotos later today. The ones from yesterday were taken with a wide angle adapter that is not very light sensitive, so the results are not that good. I mentioned similar points as Redwood in my initial review, the sleeves are too long (wrong inputs on my side). I'm not sure about more waist supression, it's ok as it is, but could be more slim fit. The jacket is rather long, but I wanted it like that and it corresponds with the length of my bespoke suits.
