    Ok - just received my first Indochino suit and I have to say, I'm impressed. The fit is great and the only alteration I need to have done is to take the chest in a little. That, alas, is my fault as I clicked the wrong box and didn't realize it unti lit was already being made...no biggie though, that's an easy fix.

    In full disclosure, I'm not a complete suit snob and my expectations were in line with the price point but I am VERY impressed and will order from Indochino again. Don't expect a Saville Row bespoke suit when ordering but at this price, you'll get more for your money than any OTR suit out there.


    Post some pics!

    Cool it worked out so well! Which suit did you get? Would love to see some photos!

    I went with the essential charcoal. I'll snap some picks when I get a chance.

    Anyone get their order from Indo recently? My pant order has been sitting "at the tailor" since the 8th - I do recall they sent an email out saying Chinese NY would delay production but I kinda expected them by now.

    I placed an order early last week, and it was sent to the tailor on Feb 22nd. I'm pretty sure there was an email that said it could take up to 4-6 weeks from the time you ordered until the time you receive your order. I'm hoping mine doesn't take that long.

    I think Indochino suits aren't all that bad, I don't have one myself, but I have heard a lot of good review from friends and family. And from the reviews on this thread too, I can say it sounds like a good brand to give a try.

    Yep...I bought the 3 piece charcoal grey one last year during Chinese New Year. It took forever to get delivered by they were very responsive.

    The quality was great, but the pant fit was a bit odd (probably because of an error in my own measurement). I ended up being too lazy to send it back for a remake...(sort of like how I never send in rebates).

    Just checked my order and it shipped on the 7th so looks like they are back in motion guys. I'll let you know what I think of the pants when I try them on.

    Thinking of getting their timeless charcoal 3-piece.. looks good on the site for $399, but I'm sure I'm going to have to get it altered. Hopefully I won't need a remake, that's a lot of work to go through for a suit. I think the only thing pushing me towards indochino and away from mysuitforless is their perfect fit guarantee / $75 alterations coverage. Mysuitforless does let you get slanted pockets and a functional boutonniere, though--and I would like that on this suit.. You all think indochino will do it for me?

    So your order sat with the tailor for about a month before it shipped? Mine's been sitting there since Feb 22nd, but Chinese New Year was already over by the time I placed my order, so hopefully mine goes through the process a little quicker.

    I've definitely read more bad reviews than good ones, and haven't actually seen many pics of finished Indochino suits that looked really great, but I had a $150 groupon I received as a gift, so I decided it couldn't hurt to take the plunge.

    Indochino does offer those options. When customizing a suit, look at the top right corner that says "advanced options" beside the "save" button. There are many things to adjust. A word of warning is that a functional boutonniere, IIRC, is cut as buttonhole style, whereas a false one is not. I don't know how Mysuitforless does it, though I suspect it may be the same, since it'll likely be by machine. You should double check on that.

    What I'm REALLY surprised about is that no one has made any comments on the latest "suits" aside from people on LorenzL's blog.

    I think it's because these new suits have only been available for less than a month so nobody has actually gotten one yet. I'm going to bite my tongue on reviewing anything until I actually receive it.
