Thanks for the info.  Well I hope they actually do lower it and not just BS me.

Seriously, considering this is one of the leading style sites for men, a large amount of posters favor the sloppy, baggy atrocious look of a "classic" fitting suit. Classic is just another way to describe the lazy, unfitted, off-the rack, pieces of garbage that people paraded around in in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.

I disagree completely. There's a solidity to that suit that gives me the idea that it's not just hanging around him. Nothing against him at all, some men are just larger than others. You'll notice that everything drapes flawlessly, that the legs are the perfect length, the shoulder fit is impeccable... now, I would have narrowed the wrists a tad (and brought the one sleeve up a bit), but it's an excellent fit, I would say. There's a range of acceptable styles between slim and classic, and his is right on the classic end of acceptable. It looks good.

 

Now, I'm a skinny bastard, so I wouldn't wear it, but it looks fine on him. I would, however, recommend pocket flaps, especially with the ticket pocket.

It is a little late but maybe it might help someone out...

 

Indochino is running a special today where if you buy any suit AND tie you can get a free pink essential wrinkle-free shirt. Code "PINKSHIRT"

 

cheers

It was on their facebook page

Cross post from the Black Tie thread, but here's a few pics of my Indochino tuxedo/tuxedo shirt after the remake.  Only thing that's missing is the pocket square.  Cummerbund is RL Polo, bowtie is from The Tie Bar.  Both are 100% silk.

 

It may not be a 100% perfect fit everywhere, but as a bodybuilder with a very unique frame, it already fits so much better than any suit I own OTR

I think you should seriously reconsider the fit throughout the body. I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell you exactly what is wrong. I can say, this is not right. You have divots all over the front. Your shoulders look pinched compared to the waist. The lapels bow outward like the jacket is too small in the chest. The lapels do not roll properly. The back is an abomination. The sleeves do not hang properly. The shoulders look like hell. The shoulders look roped which I do not like at all. Perhaps you do. You should seek a cut with a softer shoulder. The jacket needs major surgery to clean it up.

I would jump onto the tailors thread and get their opinion. I honestly don't know whether any of these comments are correctable. Personally, I would send it back and explain the issues. Something went wrong. Perhaps the measurements you gave them were faulty.

I do not like the shoulders at all. They should be much softer. There's not enough light to evaluate thoroughly. I know it's hard when your tux is black.
post #2859 of 3209
Seconded. Those shoulders look really strange. Also, I don't think a slim lapel works with your figure at all.
post #2860 of 3209
I don't like the shoulders either, but I have to work with what I have. The padding is still minimal, but I have huge delts. Honestly they're still much better than most OTR suits for me. Most suits aren't meant for a bodybuilder physique.

Hate IC's slim lapels as I said earlier. But again, beggars can't be choosers and this tux was super inexpensive.

I have had the same shoulder issue. People are more used to accomodating for large bellies than larger pecs or delts. If you make the shoulders a little bigger, they'll probably look better. I'd think about adding a little size to the chest, waste and hips of the jacket too. It looks too fitted. The sleeves could stand to be a slightly longer too. I second the "larger lapels" comment. I don't think that those look bad, but you'd probably look better with bigger lapels.

Thanks for the input.  I had already added a little bit to the shoulders/chest/waist/hips of the jacket compared to the original (which was very very fitted).  I was afraid to go too far with adding to these so as to not end up with something too billowy, but I agree that I probably could still stand to expand in those areas a tad.  We shall see.  I'm midway through a bulking phase right now and by June will likely end up similar weight as I am now (or a couple pounds less) but with better definition, so in theory there should be a little more room at least in the stomach/waist area.  

 

It's certainly not perfect by any means, but I guess I've grown to be so consistently disappointed with OTR suits (even after tailoring) that this is still a big step up for me in terms of fit, and I may end up sticking with what I have now rather than getting too picky with a bunch of things and stressing over things no one will notice anyway.

@BackInTheJox - As a point of reference, this is the way your tuxedo should look. Daniel Craig is muscular. Your body should not deter good fit. These are pics from Casino Royale. The tux is Brioni. I realize IndoChino and Brioni are not even close to being in the league. It's good to have a model though. Notice how the shape of the shoulders on this tux are so much smoother. There is some horizontal extension of the shoulder line to give Craig the appearance of broader shoulders. This styling is typical of Brioni where they attempt to give their silhouette a masculine appearance. The primary point is this - the vertical extension on the IndoChino tux jacket does not look good. Asking them to widen the shoulders will not overcome this fault. I would ask for a smoother transition from the shoulder to the sleeve.

Thanks for the pics, jcriswel.  I had seen one or two of them in my search for good tuxedo fits, actually.  I agree that widening the shoulders won't really do much.  And, unfortunately, Indochino doesn't really take much in the way of directions when it comes to making these kinds of adjustments.  It's already pulling teeth just to get them to listen to "lower button stance, less shoulder padding, higher armholes."  

 

I would kill for mine to look as smooth as Craig's....hell, even half as smooth, given the obvious price difference between IC and Brioni.

I hear you, and those pics are spot on. Yesterday, I watched that movie for the first time. Still, judging from op's pics, those shoulders look too small.
