In fact, if you look at the emails, a big part of it are just text modules. But they do it well, it's cool. The head of customer services got a twitter account and sometimes posted some pics of the Indochino crew. He seems a good guy

I ordered one last night, I'll let you know how it is in about 2 weeks.

Check out manshion.net and go back a few pages, that guy ordered a tux.

Update: After visiting my doctor, I have determined that my problem was not caused by Bedbugs (thank God), and that Indochino was not at fault in any way. My doctor diagnosed the issue as a form of Eczema, which I've never had before. I'm not the type to cover my body in lotion or use moisturizers, although I'll get a bit of itchy dry skin in the winter. I shower when I get up in the morning, after going to the gym at lunch, and usually again after my evening workout. Normally, I drink water all day long. A few months ago, I was put on a thyroid medication by my doctor, which can cause dry skin as a side effect. I took a vacation a couple of weeks ago, and got out of the habit of drinking enough water. I believe it was the perfect storm of the medication, too many showers, working out a lot, not enough water and lack of moisturizer that caused the rash. I waited to make sure it started to clear up with the meds he gave me before posting, as many Bedbug victims have been misdiagnosed by their doctors. Luckily, it seems to be clearing, and no one else has been affected. Too much information, I know, but I wanted to make sure no one feared Bedbugs from Indochino. So, a few days after getting my suit and trying it on, I started noticing insect bites clustered around my midsection with a few random bites on other parts of my body. At first I didn't think much about it, assuming mosquitoes or chiggers, even though I hadn't really been outside much. After trying the suits on a couple more times, I've now become covered with these welts and bites. My wife hasn't got any, neither of the kids, and our dogs don't have any fleas or other parasites. (One went to the vet yesterday for a checkup). Then today it hit me. The BED BUG epidemic I've been hearing random reports on. Several times I've heard that clothing coming in from China has led to Bed Bug outbreaks in the US. Anyone had a bed bug problem after getting a suit or other clothing from Indochiino? I really hope I'm wrong, but it sure appears that is what is biting me.

Oh shit. That's awful! Quarantine them immediately!

Any possibility that you are allergic to some chemical they used?

the shirts are a bit uncomfy right out of the box, but then again I usually wash tshirts, shirts anyway before wearing them. luckily never had any problems with the suits.

I suppose it's possible, but the randomness of where the welts are appearing sure looks like some kind of bite. There may be one or two at one spot on my body, ten a few inches away, and another random bump farther along.

Few years back I read a news story of a woman in Japan got stung by a scorpion traveled from China in the pocket of the jeans she bought. So the bedbugs are in the realm of possibility.

I recently went through the "Get measured" link and put in my measurements. I then went to my account and clicked on "my Measurements" and saw that they are all completely different from what I put in.

Is this normal? Most of the measurements are smaller than what I put in, at times 3 inches smaller.
post #1001 of 3209
Yeah, that happens. What you see is the measurements as the Indochino tailors interpret it.
Basically, all you can do is not to let it worry you and indicate changes that you might need on the suit by adjusting the measurements wit +/- inches. It's silly they do it like that and it changes around quite often what they display.

So I have finally gotten around to having pictures taken. I'm planning on having the jacket remade as the pick-stitching is just awfully visible. I went to an old italian tailor who seemed more interested in selling me his bespoke clothing and suggesting "I got what I paid for" than actually bothering to help make suggestions on alterations. Then again, a quick look at his clothing showed very boxy suits. As may remember from my previous photo uploads, I'm very much seeking an NPH sort of slim fit. What do you guys think? Clearly, the fit isn't very flattering. The shoulders seem a bit on the bigger side. I took the photo of the coat with just the vest on as the suit jacket underneath makes the shoulders look ridiculously big. I think the pants could us a bit of adjustment as well. I think I may have made the crotch area larger than I should have. The weird arms in the air position is to show how much the suit snags when I move my arms. I'm thinking higher armholes is necessary as well. I'm probably going to throw the pocket flaps back in as well.

I used an auto-fix photo feature to make the pictures brighter, so the colours may seem a bit unnatural. I need to submit my remake order in ASAP for the jacket, so any suggestions overall, as well as alterations on the other pieces would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
