    This is my first post, but I've been lurking for a while - sorry mods if I've posted this in the wrong place.

    I recently came across harrysuits.com and was hoping someone had experience or feedback to share. They seem to offer very inexpensive custom tailored suits and have an ordering interface that looks eerily like Indochino's.

    All the reviews in the testimonials section have similar diction and are all 5 out of 5 stars. I can't seem to find anything about them online that isn't a blatant advertisement or company written press release. I'd imagine this has something to do with the name's similarity to Harry Rosen or the Harry from Hong Kong (this site claims to be from Mumbai).

    I wouldn't normally look to online suiting (tried Indochino - wasn't terrible, but I prefer the in-store approach), but with prices around $175 it is tempting.

    Any feedback at all would be great,

    Thanks!

    Those reviews were probably typed by Harry himself or his kin.
    Check out the 'contact us' option. It leads nowhere but to a mysterious email address.
    No Harry. No real names. No address. No phone number. This site is dodgy at best.

    Paging Harry, someone wants to know about your suits.

    I had a similar feeling on first glance, just the site looks less like a scam than a sketchy-at-best tailor. Also, the 'reviews' only started a few months ago, suggesting the site may be quite new.

    For less than $200 its tempting, just hoping someone has seen\heard of the results before.

    I've actually bought two suits from them - my comment after receiving the first one is there but they do seem to only post the 5 star ratings and not anything else.

    I've been very satisfied with the both of them - one was 100% pure wool the other was a blend - the material on the first was terrific and the second was a little rougher but still nice and both fit very well. I took a gamble to order the first and my expectations were low.

    I went to a tailor to get measured, sent in the order and within a couple of weeks got the first one. Nicely packaged, fit beautifully. I don't know how long it will last but I wear each one about once a week or so and intend to get more.

    Hope this is useful.

    hey ive been looking into this too - i wanted to buy a suit, but luckily thought i should have a poke around first (pretty much cause of the extremely low prices).

    http://www.prweb.com/releases/customsuits/harrysuits/prweb9127974.htm

    i found this link ^^ and it makes "harrysuits.com" look pretty dodgy - especially when they refer to the CEO as "Harry Suits"

    but other than that i found bugger all, no reviews, no anything.

    i dont know mate - i want someone to try them and tell me if it works hahaha.

    oh and someone mentioned indochino... if i order a suit from them how long would it take to be delivered? (im in queensland australia btw)

    Have you used 'search' to see what that reveals. If as I suspect, nothing, then simply avoid them. The web site looks like several others of its ilk and inspires no confidence whatever.

    Notice also how simialr the web site is to this one:

    http://www.tailoredsuitsparis.com/

    Which someone asked exactly the same question about yesterday


    Both total crap - avoid unless you like burning money. Just take advantage of RTW when marked down - you'll do better that this stuff.

    I have purchased the Fabric samples - thought $15 to see how it goes isnt that great a risk if it doesnt come off.

    I have used Harrys for my wedding.
    I followed all the instructions for measurements for myself (black french pinstripe pure wool) and 4 groomsmen (plain black pure wool).
    Mine arrived first, the trousers didn't quite fit, $15 to alter at my local seamstress.
    The rest of the suits were fine, although 2 of the guys haven't tried them on yet - they only arrived yesterday. Nice lightweight pure wool suits - I don't think they do a heavier a winter suit.
    I asked for express service and they produced and shipped all 5 suits within 15 days at no extra charge - although i offered - responded well to emails, etc.
    I recommend their service and product. For the price, its good stuff. seriously.
    Also - they do offer credit to the value of any local alterations required after delivery, or you can ship back and get them to do the alterations for free.
    So - my experiences with Harrys all good thus far

    Yet another first time poster who praises a little known brand. All others critical which does suggest that this is 'convenient' and relies on Google alerts which I gather 'find' these things....

    I'm the proud owner of three custom suits and a handful of off-the-rack suits. I stumbled across Harry's and it seemed like a great deal with an easy to use interface so I decided to give it a try. Using my favorite custom suit, I entered all of the measurements carefully. The suit arrived quickly, but I soon discovered that the cut of the sleeves were too small - not the length - the fullness of the bicep and forearms. I'm not a muscular guy, but if I flex, I'm bulging out of the sleeves. And forget about wearing french cuffs. I've emailed photos to Harry's more than a dozen times in a variety of formats from multiple email accounts. Customer service is poor. They rarely reply and when they do, they tell me to adjust my measurements, but there are no possible adjustments for the sleeves. Woolen fabrics are sub-par and satin linings are heavy. Overall, this is a worthy gamble if you're a slim guy, take great measurements, and are OK with middle of the road quality. For me, I gambled and lost a few hundred bucks.
