Indochino suits? - Page 6

I thought this was extreme, so I only put -4". My bicep measures 13.5" around, so I input 9.5". The bicep on my suit jacket when I received it was ~7.75" across, so ~15.5" around.

The blogger is pretty spot on when it comes to the expansion to your measurements that Indochino's tailors will make. I definitely think the arm would look and feel better if I cut off the extra inch, so I am adjusting this on my remake. Remakes are free, but you have to pay return shipping, or you can use their $75 alterations credit if it's more convenient for you.

Suit quality definitely isn't the greatest, and is comparable to H&M/Zara.. but it's great for something that fits better than OTR suits at sub-OTR prices. Don't waste your money on their shirts or ties unless they're free, though.

If you want a more shapeless suit then I suppose you could do without the adjustments, but I would definitely cut some of the measurements that he suggests by a bit at least. I'm fairly sure it will turn out better fitting and you have nothing to lose besides shipping cost anyway.

I thought their suit was full-canvassed, how can the quality not be better than H&M and Zara suits?

I have four indochino suits and I love them. I wear they far more then my BB 1818's. The measurements are tricky because what you put as your measurement will not be the exact measurement they use, but their suits are cheap so I just used trial and error and kept adjusting the measurements till I got them perfect and now I am set.

A picture says more than a thousand words. And four pictures...

As promised here are the pics. They are not the best. I should bring my work camera home. I'm about 5'8'', 145lbs. The suit itself is the pearly white suit; http://www.indochino.com/product/Pea...ipes_Suit.html Shirts are; http://www.indochino.com/product/The...ity_Shirt.html http://www.indochino.com/product/Hea...ped_Shirt.html Tie clip is; http://www.indochino.com/product/Goo..._Tie_Clip.html The belt is a kenneth Cole Reaction. The pants and shirt are all slim fit. I wore this suit on New Years and probably got about 8-10 complements on it that night alone. Granted, these people are just regular people, not fashion aficionados, none the less, i'm quite happy with it.

Looks good. I have that same one and think it is great. I just got the blue cotton and the brown and both were good pickups as well.

worth, this is probably the best-fitting Indochino suit I've seen to date (though something's not quite right with the right chest and some styling choices, e.g. waist button placement and lapel gorge/width are not to my taste) Well done. How did you arrive at the measurements you used? Did you modify them artificially to get a better fit? Did you have the suit altered ? Thanks for your input Redwoood

Great to hear, thanks. I did the measurements myself, which is probably not the best way to go, but I felt as though I was very careful while doing it. Nothing was altered. I put in the measurements, ordered it, and it was like that out of the box. The pants are a little tight around the waist, and on the new shirts I ordered, I made a couple adjustments around the wrists and neck, but nothing major.

Just came out of the box. Here's the supposedly 'natural' shoulder offering. The shirt is also from them and its utter crap in material but it fits well. If not for being free I would never have gotten one. I think the shoulders still have room for improvement. My third suit from them and I am satisfied with the product you get for the price you pay. Will purchase again definitely.

Got some funkiness going on with sleeves at the back. Pitch issue probably but hey... not bad at all...

Looks like Cahlo took down the page.
My guess is that seeing how close he is to indochino, they probably used his adjustments to reengineer their cutting process.
Note also worth's good fit using unadjusted measurements.

Anybody who orders from indochino from now on should probably not use madetomeasureny's tweaks, or otherwise they won't be able to fit into their suit.

Thinking about getting a Tuxedo from Indochino. Anyone know what the policy is if you can't get a good suit fit?
post #87 of 3209
Just pulled the trigger on a navy suit. I was pleased with the amount of options you have. I think I'm going to email them and request a natural shoulder and maybe let them go ahead and finish the sleeves, though I'm undecided there. Will post pics when it arrives. Can you use that $75 alterations credit toward getting the sleeves finished and pants hemmed, I wonder?

They got a video up on their homepage. "Go behind the scenes for a rare glimpse at the making of an Indochino suit and follow our two-week production process from click to fit." I'm impressed how the video was put together, makes their service appear very appealing.

I like my Indochino suits, but I can't believe the video... pedal-powered sewing machines like my grandma had, operated by a tailor in a suit? Hmm. - Mike

HAHA, ya, I found the suit amusing but the pedal-powered sewing machine is believable.
