Indochino suits? - Page 199

(unrelated: Indochino started their Chinese New Year Sale, quite surprising - you can get 20% off everything: Chinese New Year Sale)

 

Not sure if this post is going to go through since they're all getting sent into the mod queue...

 

So you're saying it's the tightness of the waist of the jacket that's causing the vent to flare out a bit?

 

And since my last post hasn't been approved yet, I'll just ask again:

-Would it be worth getting the button stance lowered a bit? Would this help elongate my torso?

-By the shoulders being too large, do you guys mean that they're too wide or that they're too big circumference wise (at the armholes)? If it's the latter, I thought the shoulder pads are supposed to end wherever my shoulder ends, which it seemed like they did when I wore it. Is this wrong?

 

From the feedback so far I'm thinking it might be easier to just request a remake.

Just put in my order! Worked out well with the random 20% off. CNY is still 2 weeks away isn't it?

Noticed that most of their measurements were very close and almost spot on based on my weight and height and other body selections. Most of my actual measurements were just 1/2 an inch smaller (few larger) than the ones they guessed.

Still not sure if ill regret normal notch over slim. Didn't get the waist pocket either as it apparently makes you look shorter (if you are). Too bad, thought it looked decent for others.

Hope it works out for me since i probably won't have time for a remake, as i'll need the suit very early April (unless i ask for a remake but use the original once anyway).

Would definitely get another in the near future if its a good fit.

I originally posted this here http://www.styleforum.net/t/334095/2nd-indochino-suit-could-use-some-feedback but figured I might get some more attention in this thread. Please give the original thread a look for some additional details. 

For reference, I'm about 5'7"-5'8" with a skinny frame. Apologizing beforehand for the crappy picture quality.





The button stance on the new suit is a little higher (about an inch or so) than the old one, which feels weird when buttoning the jacket up since I'm so used to having it lower. I enjoy having a V-shape in my suit. Do you think this one is sufficient? What about the button stance? I kind of like having longer lapels so I was thinking of having the stance moved down.






It's a little tough to see in the above pic but some of the fabric at my lats/armpit seems to form into a wrinkle. Is this ok or does this mean the back is too wide?





My shoulders are slightly pulled back here which is accentuating the creases but I'm still wondering if perhaps the armholes or sleeves themselves are too wide (or are they supposed to look like this?). I might gain some additional size on my arms in the future (or I might not) so I don't know if I should have them altered.  Either way, here's a picture with my shoulders and arms in a more relaxed position, which makes the creases slightly less noticeable.

 



So what do you guys think? 

Besides the fit issues, it's much too aggressively styled (extreme v-shape, skinny legs) to be useful for an office job or nearly any other situation.

I made an order January 25th in the afternoon, and just got an email that it shipped today, the 5th of February. That's well under two weeks, just wondering if anyone else had such a fast turnaround? It was originally scheduled for delivery on February 22, now its for the 9th. Maybe they're rushing things out before Chinese New Year?

What did you order? Some things don't take as long to get done...sucks that you didn't get the 20% off, but at least you got a quick turnaround.

I got the Gilt City deal, so it wasn't like I paid full price. For the suit and shirt alone, I would have paid $460, I got it for $415 plus a bunch of other random stuff (tie,tie clip, pocket square, cufflinks). And besides, I ordered the last possible day before the delays for CNY, and I needed it for a wedding, so I'll live with it. Be great if they always shipped this fast though.

...same here. I didn't know that you'd bought the Gilt coupon. That's a good deal.

I asked for higher armholes, and I got a message saying "Your request for lower armholes has been added to your account."

 

I think that sums up most of the experiences with Indochino in this thread.

Haha.  I had nothing but good experiences/interactions with Indochino.  I emailed them right after ordering my tux and asked for higher armholes, lower button stance, and less shoulder padding, and received an email saying "thank you, these preferences have been added to your account for this and any future suit purchases."  Also, when it came time for a remake, I unfortunately missed the deadline to submit new measurements because of a family emergency.  I emailed customer service at Indochino and they gladly extended the remake deadline for me.


Obviously, other people's experiences have differed.

I gave Indochino a go last Fall and the fit of my suit was surprising good, almost perfect. To be honest, I think it's a bit better than a M2M Samuelsohn I got recently. I would do it again with a higher quality fabric next time. My only complaint would be that my pull tabs on the pants are tearing a little.

I had a shirt done at the same time, but the armholes were too tight so I never wear it. In hindsight, I wish I returned it to be remade while I could. I would like to try more of their shirts but it's a bit hard to commit when the first go was a bit off.

Some of the people posting here have wacky fits and crooked bodies. It's pretty hard to fit people like that. If you have an average build, I think there is a good chance Indochino will work out well for you.

Ok so here are some pics: Indochino Navy Cotton Suit.

1st order from indochino. The suit and pants are made with 100% cotton which make this suit much heavier compare to wool suits. Suit is a lint magnet for sure, attracts all kinds of lints, not a big issue.  I will most likely take the jacket and pants in for alterations. Chest needs to be tighten, sleeves to be shorten, pants to be lengthen and tighten a little. One issue is that the pants seems to wrinkle easily, ie sitting down, getting up seems to wrinkle the pants....or maybe it's just me, as I haven't iron the pants yet.

 

 

 

 





Let me know what you think.....

...isn't THAT the truth, haha. I didn't know that people could be shaped like some of these guys rotflmao.gif Let's see pictures of your almost perfect fit.

Hi all, I'm a new member here at StyleForum. Recently I started reading this thread from the very beginning, and I'm currently about 700 posts of the way in. It's fascinating to read about the company and products back a few years ago with all the inconsistencies, dubious materials, questionable construction, etc. and seeing gradual improvements.

 

Anyway, I've been an Indochino customer since spring 2012, first buying an Essential Navy Suit, and most recently a Navy Cotton Suit.

 

Here is the Indochino Navy Cotton Suit I recently ordered. Originally it was $299 as part of their Happy Hour sale on Friday January 25, 2013. I bought it then, since the sales typically only last through the weekend. Then the following week, the Chinese New Year sale happened (20% off everything), so I was able to e-mail Indochino and they removed 20% off the price, bringing my cost down to $239.20 before taxes. Wonderful deal.

I received the package from FedEx on Friday January 8, 2013. That's a two week turnaround time from Indochino, who normally promises four weeks (except when there are major Chinese holidays such as Chinese New Year, in which case the delay is five weeks). When I first became an Indochino customer in spring 2012, their policy was three weeks. So the fact that they beat their normal turnaround times from a year ago astounded me.

Here are the specifications of the Navy Cotton Suit I ordered in comparison to the Essential Navy Suit I already have from them. I can post photos of the Essential Navy Suit later if anyone is interested. :)

Navy Cotton Suit
Jacket Lapels:     Notch (Slim)
Jacket Vents:     Two
Jacket Buttons:     Two

The Essential Navy Suit
Jacket Lapels:     Notch (Slim)
Jacket Vents:     Two
Jacket Buttons:     Two
Jacket Lining:     Dark Purple
Monogram: Yes (my name)
Monogram Color:     Silver Gray
Monogram Style:     Brush Script
Pants Pleats:     None
Pick Stitching:     No
Slanted Pockets:     Yes
Waist Pocket:     No
Pocket Flaps:     No

Random thoughts:
-Very comfortable.
-The heavy duty cotton weighs more than the Essential Navy Suit in wool. Despite this, I'm a very warm-bodied person who generates a lot of heat, so I could really feel like my temperature was regulated well in this cotton suit (ie- I stay cool wearing it). It would be fantastic to wear in the summer (summer weddings included). I can see myself wearing this a lot more than I would have imagined for a warm-weather suit.
-I initially didn't like the look of the lighter-coloured buttons when I was placing my order, but I grew to appreciate them in person. I already have dark buttons on the Essential Navy Suit, so this is just one extra thing to set them apart.
-The cotton material attracts more particles than wool.
-I will have to research how to take care of a cotton suit, having never owned one before.
-Cotton isn't as wrinkle-resistant as wool, but I knew this already when I ordered it.
-I think the fit is great, but I will leave it up to the keen-eyed experts.
-The now-standard Bemberg lining is less lustrous than the linings (polyester?) used in their previous offerings, but is supposed to be an increase in quality as Indochino recently is really stepping up their game to use well-respected materials (including BWF collar felts). To think how far they've come from 2009 or so when some of their suits actually had polyester or poly/wool blends.

Anyway, here are the photos I just took. Constructive critique welcomed and encouraged. I'm wearing:

The collar needs fixing, the shoulders are flawed, and the jacket is too short. Despite that, it doesn't look bad (for casual use only). Nice-looking color and fabric.
