    Oh boy. I've been eyeing Indochino coats for a while now, waiting for the right time to buy. Thought it was a pity they only had the Navy. I'm definitely going to be jumping on one of these.

    Would love to know people's opinions though.

    After all the disasters in the other Indochino thread, and stories of needing 3 or more remakes before getting a suit that's even remotely wearable, I'm honestly astounded that people still consider purchasing anything from them...

    Link to that thread? I must have missed it.

    It'd be interesting to see their numbers - I'm curious on how many people use the $75 tailoring credit, and how much of it they use, as well as how many need remakes/returns. As with anything on the internet you're going to hear the loudest/displeased more than anyone else.

    I'd order from them again. It's pretty good for the price point. I think the people that are upset are those with unrealistic expectations.

    Not loving their trenches, though. If anyone gets one, I'd love to hear how water resistent their cotton is, if it's waxed at all.

    Well, I've been looking for MTM trenches, and Burberry is out of my budget right now. I can't seem to find many other options at this price range.

    What details about the trenches don't you like, just wondering? Thanks for the comments.

    I don't really know. I just don't love them. I don't know trenches enough to put my finger on it. Maybe I'm just annoyed at the bottom button being left undone and the belt not being fully wrapped around. What the guys at Indochino don't know about how to dress hurts the soul. Anyone who has seen the interview knows what I'm talking about. [​IMG]

    Somewhere in the Indochino review thread, you'll find a link to an interview with the founders. I'm too lazy to look for it[​IMG]

    I'm not sure how I feel about their coats. If you are looking for a trench coat, try army/navy surplus type places. They have a more authentic look anyway. Here's an example: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=645000 For $20 you can't go wrong. Plus, you have room for $280 worth of tailoring [​IMG]
