Indochino suits? - Page 213

post #3181 of 3211

That blazer looks awfully sharp.  What a lovely fabric.

 

Nice choice...it's flattering and a good recommendation for the maker.

Thank you. This is going to be my new favorite in my blazer rotation. It looks even better today after my tailor helped me properly press the sleeves.

Anyone try a shirt from there Thomas Mason fabrics?
Opinions?

I went to the Vancouver Pop-Up today.
It's just a retail sales employee that measures you.

I'm sure most people who buy clothes online would be able to measure just as well.
It does help that someone else is the one taking the measurements though.

Thomas Mason is a very well regarded fabric on this forum and elsewhere. So it's a good choice.

I like the texture and flecking on this tweed a lot.

I bought that blazer as well. I went with the single-breast and large peak lapels, but I went with the leather buttons, elbow patches and a 1-button closure.

Nice, I was tempted to go with the leather buttons and elbow patches, but decided I didn't need another vintage look blazer...

I was wearing the Essential Charcoal Pants at work and when I bent down a bit too deep to pick up a box, my pants split.
Not down the seam but the fabric between my butt and crotch just tore wide open.


In light of this, I can't recommend their suiting fabrics- they are of cheap quality.

Just spend $200-300 more and buy a decent Made to Measure suit from your local tailor. They will do a much better job for sure.
You'll be happier in the long run.



I will say their shirts have lasted me and I will be buying some Thomas Mason Blue Strip and Mini Blue Stripe shirts in the near future.

Both my indochino suits wore a hole in the crotch in less than a year with once per week wearings. Although I was working as a commercial real estate broker in NYC at the time so I was doing a lot of walking.

Anyways, I like my Brooks better, just have to wait for the sale.

That's horrific, did anybody see? That's a little worrisome when a menswear company can't even guarantee one's butt-cheeks won't come bursting out of their pants.

....fixed that for you. I've never had that problem with Indochino. How did the hips/rise fit?

This is more accurate, we had a good laugh.

I just stapled it up, threw on my jacket and went to a cheap menswear store, bought some cheap pants for the day.
I work in an office so no biggie.

It fit perfectly- as well as this company could make it any ways. I had a local tailor alter it to fit.

Just a note I don't have many good suits, but I have many excellent quality pairs of pants.

Indochino's fabric is not in the same league. It is just passable quality.

Has no real sheen or brilliance and a poor hand feel.
Also it feels quite thin and very much like poly, although I believe it to be 100% wool or very close to that.

It was a good starter suit and I learned a lot about fit and such, but if you are purchasing a second suit or more than one from them- You're making a mistake.

It was 30% last year, and their shirt patterns are nothing special right now. I'm out this year.

Interesting to see how this thread basically died. What are you guys buying these days - Black Lapel, Dragon Inside, InStitchu?
