    So I just got my first suit from indochino. What do you guys think?

    At first glance it seems to me that the suit may be too small. It seems a bit too tight around the thighs and shoulders (I have a muscular frame hence my larger legs and back). Perhaps the sleeves are a tad too long as well? I also requested for higher armholes, but I'm not sure if I got it for this suit. It looks as if the v-taper is too exaggerated (maybe from too much waist surpression?). I'm not too experienced with suits though, I want to hear what you guys think. Do I require a remake? I've also had a friend comment that the shoulder is too big on the suit.

    Also for those familiar with remakes, do you guys take it to a tailor and ask for what they would adjust in your suit or do you guys just eyeball it/use your own judgement?

    Here are the pictures of my suit:

    It does not look very good, but the photographs are FAR too dark/indistinct to be sure on detail.

    Sorry, but those are the best pics I can get at this time. Maybe I'll post some tomorrow when I take pics during the day. But based on those photos, what would you guys change/alter for the remake?

    Pictures are dark but I can see a good portion of your butt, some wrinkles under the collar and the tightness of your pants.

    Have you checked with Indochino if that really is your suit? it seems a size too small for you.

    If those are the best then my primary comment is far too small, clearly not made for you. Get a refund and go somewhere decent.

    Just got my suit remade. What do you guys think? Do I still need any changes? It seems like the shoulder pads are a bit thicker after the remake even though I requested natural shoulders.

    I understand this as a slim fitting suit but the jacket sleeves look short about half an inch.

    Your sleeves are OK. Jacket length, while on the shorter side, covers your ass so it's passable. This this sharkskin fabric brah?

    You should really care about the pictures you present. I mean, in one of them you have a fold near your elbow that is pulling the sleeve up and visibly distracting.
