    On the first page of pics on that site there are only like 2 that look passable and I'm only saying that because there is nothing wrong with them, but even those ones are meh even compared to RTW. Im talking about the charcoal, navy blue and maybe one of the "ultimate greys"

    I emailed them right after placing my order to say I want high armholes, lower button stance, and thin shoulder padding. The CS emailed me back in 8 hours acknowledging they got it. Hope your suit turn out well. My expectation is that the first suit will need to be remade.

    My tailor told me she can take off 2 inches off the chest without any pulling. I think I will shoot for 1.5" chest reduction in remake. I will post my remake request once I submit it.

    I would so like to do an MTM suit (thinking seriously of thick as thieves), but I just don't know if I can take the plunge unless it's done in person. I'm really worried that any suit I order will arrive all jacked up like this one.

    Are you in LA? Then TaT will measure you in person I think. Or MyTailor, yes? Maybe others can confirm.

    The rise is way too high.
    Seat looks too big.
    Pants way too long.

    :lurk:


    Could be a shill site with fake reviews. That appears to be just a link farm anyway. I see it's registered via an anonymous (we don't want you to find us) proxy, just like the indochino site, and most other online "bespoke tailors".

    Can you be more specific like in how many inches?

    I actually thought the rise is bit short, but I thought you suggest I decrease it.

    Thanks.

    I had the same doubt but later found out it's maintained by a SF regular Lorenzl - http://www.styleforum.net/u/78949/lorenzl.

    Looks at his signature: http://www.styleforum.net/t/52943/indochino-suits/2505#post_5711309

    I think he's doing a pretty good job keeping things up-to-date.

    On the side profile photos, the pants look like they are riding up very high.
    This is why I suggested the rise may be too high.

    hence the problem with self measurements by people with no experience.

    the TaT measurement chart makes no sense to someone who actually has taken suit measurments.

    i have not looked at the Indochino method

    Photos can be very deceptive.
    People here will tell you pants that are too tight to function in real are "baggy" b/c they see one crease in your photo

    You need to understand something about SF: Some people here don't actually dress up.
    They are just internet people who never leave their basement and do not own dress clothing.
    They are comparing your photos to artificial fashion model fits
    (where the pins would pop off if the model bent over or raised his arms, or sat down)
    You are dressing in the real world. So, if it feels like it fits, go with it.

    Why the hell are you standing on grocery bags? That is the question.

    Because his wife spent the money on new white carpeting.
    normally she makes him take off his shoes before he steps into that room.

    remember, this is the woman who mis-measured him
    And if he had dirtied that new carpet, she would cut off his clothing budget.

    Now if they had spent less money on the carpet, he could have gone to a store that would have taken proper
    measurements and made a suit that fit.
    But he thinks His wife took proper measurements, indochino made the mistakes.
