    Of course the models aren't the same. Neither is the location. But the angle of the pictures as well as the shots taken are all too similar to be different. I'm saying that both of you are Indochino.
    I would think Indochino's advertising department would need some serious innovation if they chose to put up terrible pictures like that (bad lighting, misfitting suits, camera phone used in earlier pictures). Not to mention, my height does not quality for modeling... sadly.

    In any case, whether or not I am Indochino, do you have any suggestions for altering the suit?

    It's hard for me to give advice on an item that is intended to look poorly fitted. I really don't like the way the suits fit their models. They look like women's jackets on the site. If Indochino can't get the suits to fit the models properly, how can we expect them to make a suit that fits anyone properly?

    You're better off with so many other OTR options. Used on B&S or thrifted, sales at quality stores, Uniqlo, H&M, Club Monaco, Zara...

    You're retarded if you think they would go to the trouble to post that kind of shit. If I weren't a customer I certainly would be running somewhere else after those.

    Unfortunately the suit jacket makes you look like a linebacker. I also don't know what the hell you were thinking w/ that dress shirt. Are you a bouncer at a strip club? Sorry to hear they f'ed up again, but everyone needs to realize that the tailors don't get anything but a list of measurements and I'm sure they are shopping this stuff out to 20 different places. The problem is the lack of quality control. If they had 1/2 of what moderntailor did then we'd be talking.

    [​IMG] This is universally awful. There's nowhere to begin because it doesn't fit anywhere. Too tight in waist. Too big in shoulders with too much padding. At least an inch or two short in the body. An inch or more short in the sleeves. Sleeves look like they're torquing. I'm not attacking you, but Indochino's continual stream of crap. If this is ALREADY a remake and they got your order wrong again, run away. Ask for your money back, pay a local tailor to measure you, and order TaT if you want a passable starter MtM. What size are you usually in OTR, anyway?

    I got the shirt on clearance for $10 at H&M some years back [​IMG] I know... I need to work on getting dress shirts. I didn't need anything too formal in the past during university, but that's a necessary change now. I'm already looking into Modern Tailor and Jantzen for a quality shirt. I've got two decent dress shirts from Club Monaco and Mexx, but they're on the larger side, so I don't usually wear them unless they're tucked in with a vest or a blazer.

    The shoulders seem to fit fairly well, minus the padding. I think opting for natural shoulders should alleviate this problem. The jacket waist was too big before, and too small now, so that should be an easy fix. That's probably responsible for the strange triangular silhouette.

    No offense taken. I don't feel attacked. It's not my tailoring work [​IMG] I think I'll give them one more chance. Besides, I'm party to blame for the measurement mistakes, although they did make additional reductions beyond what I asked. It doesn't cost me anything anyway. I still have to return the suits (now two), so I'll ship them together to minimize cost once my third one comes in (in case that needs to be returned, then I'm done). Besides, the peacoat is at least quite nice. I went through enough trouble anyway, so I'll give them one last shot. From what I've read, their higher-end suits feature nice fabric, which I can believe given the fabric in the coat. And without a good coupon code, I wouldn't have considered this order anyway. I can increase the body a little, but I'm mostly okay with the height. The picture makes the inseam look very low and below the jacket due to shadowing, but they're actually close to where the jacket body ends. Maybe a 1/2" difference. This will probably show better if I reduce the width of the pant legs. Sleeves are definitely too short though.

    My OTR size is 34S, and that's still ill-fitting.

    Actually that's quite flattering lol. But really, I'm just another Indochino "costumer" trying to get a second opinion so I can get something that's fitted the way it should be. You do have cleaver approach at trying to link us all together though, point and shoot photography[​IMG]

    Thick as Thieves. Brand owned by a SF regular.

    That I did not know! I've heard great things about TaT. If my purchase with Indochino doesn't work out, I'm going to try them next... once I'm employed. I'm willing to stick with a company as long as they can work out a great fit for me. One of my gripes with Indochino is that the button stance is too high.

    Jbharris88, you mentioned that Modern Tailor has more to offer than Indochino. What is your experience with their shirts? Have you tried out Jantzen as well? They seem to be a much more affordable option.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Here are all my suits from Indochino in the order that I purchased them in, with the exception of one which I haven't taken a picture of yet. I've had non of them altered, and non of them remade. My experience with them has been smooth and quick. The suits aren't perfect however, I am very pleased with the product I get for the money I pay and the speed at which the whole transaction gets completed, from the time I purchase to when it arrives at my door. I will definitely continue using them. I haven't received serious feedback for any of the suits I've shown but I'd like to hear what people honestly think. Click images to see posts.

    Thanks for the pics. Regarding the natural shoulders (an option I'm considering), I noticed in the first picture of the navy tweed that the seam between the neck and shoulder is wrinkling due to the position of your arm. Does this happen with your other suits as well, or just the natural shoulders since there is no padding to weight it down/level it out?

    I honestly couldn't tell ya, but my best guess would be that it would happen to all my suits, Indochino or otherwise, in a position like that.

    The disasters in the tat thread are far worse than the disasters in this thread. But thats just my opinion. tat has a good quality product, a few notches above Indochino in terms of fabric and construction however, the long wait times and seemingly inconsistent end-products have made me stay away. I have five tat's, 2 were a total disaster and they were my 3rd and 4th. How? I have no clue. That leaves 3 that are wearable. My second and fifth are solid suits which I like very much. But the price, long wait and the two failures has left a bitter taste in my mouth. My tats: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...postcount=1249 http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...postcount=1570 http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...postcount=2643 Indochino offers less risk and in my opinion, is a better choice for a starter mtm.

    Indochino is always a bit of a gamble, but I believe it is well worth a try. I never had any problems with the material quality, construction seems solid. There are always some coupons around that make their suits and even better deal and most importantly, the purchase is risk free (well, it is true you have to send back the suit on your own expense). It puzzles me a bit that results differ so much, some of these suits on this thread seriously look awful while others look great. It cannot be just luck, can it? What is definitely annoying is that they tend to forget things such as monograms or perhaps the correct color of the lining, especially on remakes. After all, you customize your suit the way you want it, so it is really very annoying to get something different...

    My guess is they have some good and some really idiotic tailors. My suit went from being oversized to undersized. I included pictures as well in the remake process. I don't see how such a drastic change can be made by a well-trained tailor. I hope my re-remake is handled by a good tailor. I'm frustrated, but there's nobody visibly responsible. It's certainly not CS' fault. I also don't feel the greatest costing Indochino so much to get my suit made. At the end of the day, I want a bargain suit, while giving my vendor a margin of profit.
