^x2 I'm waiting to hearing a review too, and Nice avatar good for you.
So I dropped the ball last night, got caught up with some things. And thanks for the avatar compliment, I did that myself.

Review:
Pictures are going to have to wait, but overall the suit's quality is great.

Here is the GOOD:
Lot of custom/high end options I should note first:

- Silk liner on jacket - colour of your choice (I went with navy blue on a grey suit)
- Silk liner in pants down to the knee (prevents them riding up)
- Name stitched inside coat - nice touch
- Real bull horn buttons
- 4 functional jacket cuff buttons
- Full canvas interlining
- Pen pocket
- Monogramed french cuff with my initials on shirt
- Double vent

- There were many more than I didn't choose (slanted pockets, ticket pocket, pant cuffs, slim lapels, peaked lapels, functional boutonniere, etc)

Now onto first impressions. Great packaging, great service (we had some things changed last minute), no hassle "free" shipping (aka it's factored in the price), great promos (I got a free custom shirt and tie with my suit) and lots of helpful reading material.

Next I tried it on. Pants fit amazing. A tad long but an easy tweak at a local tailor. Didn't expect it to be perfect with measurements plugged in over the net. Silk feels amazing and they look awesome, very pleased overall.

The shirt fit great everywhere that I was worried, although the sleeves were a little long. French cuffs stick out way to far. Confused as to why but once again, an easy tweak at the tailor. Slick monogram of my initials (white on a white shirt) are a nice subtle touch that I definitely dig.

And the jacket. Great fit in the shoulders. Unfortunately the waist is terribly off. Like... Pissed me off terrible. It needs to come in alot. I have pretty wide shoulders (athletic build) for a 5'10" guy, but I am not a box, unlike the suit's cut implies. V taper threw them off or something. They had all my measurements! Really annoys me. Luckily it's a double vent so I hope my tailor is able to bring it in alot in the waist.

Another annoyance with the jacket is they have alot of built in breathing/alteration room. I don't know if you know what I mean but it's some bulk in the shoulder-arm seam, a faint hint of extra material at the bottom, etc. I don't know if they include this for the sole fact that they know there will be some last minute alterations on the clients end and it gives the tailor room to work, but its not what I want from a "custom" suit.

So maybe I raved too much about these guys. I feel as though I measured perfect, I selected slim fit for everything (shirt is fairly slim, pants are slimish, could be "slimmer").

The Saving Grace:
So reading the material included with the suit (which I had read up on their website) I do have options. They offer a $75 credit towards a local tailor to alter the suit for any tweaks. I doubt mine will be under $75 but it could be, who knows. For me to be 100% happy with the suit I'd need the pants hemmed an inch or two, the jacket brought in drastically in the waist, and the bulk taken out of the shoulders. Not to mention an inch and a half out of the shirt length.

I have another option. If my tailor says they cannot alter it to my desired measurements the included paperwork says they will take back the irrepairable item and remake it for you to the tailors specifications, hassle-free. Apparently they have a very high customer retention rate and work hard for it. So I might have to go that route. They even include a sheet for the tailor to mark up. Then I change my online measurements on their website and I'm good to go for my next purchase.

So overall I am a little iffy. Little disappointed but I am picky and I had high hopes. Everything looks and feels like it's been made to a high standard, just the fit is off. Nice hanger bag and presentation.

I should also mention my brother's suit came in the same day (he is also in the wedding party) and it fits MUCH better. Great slim fit with only some very minor tweaks needed.

I will be sure to update with PICTURES and the developments with their customer service department regarding my alterations. With those I feel I have a suit I could REALLY love.

Thanks for the read!

Excellent review! I hope all works out at the tailor. Rather than shipping it back. It does seem as if they believe in their product. Which I personally can appreciate.

Navy blue silk liner, name written on inside... Althought I woulda' liked to have chosen another font. This was the only option, so why not.


The suit itself! I didn't get a pic of the pants for some reason, my bad. But they are nice, with little details like a rubber ring on the inside of the waist to keep your shirt down, silk lined down to knee, etc.


28" monitor ftw.


A gift from a friend. Absinthe from Italy for finishing my LSAT's recently(althought we can get it here... I think they can have higher concentrations of wormwood? I don't think Hapsburg is premium, but regardless, super nice gesture smuggling it back for me after a European cruise. I planned on throwing up the 4 but completely forgot. Dumbass.

Hard to see in the one pic but it's a nice woven/cotten skinny tie, for dress down jeans days. Always wanted one and I got a free tie!

I knowwwwwwwwwwww. That is the one thing that bugs me too. That and having www. insertbrandhere .com on the inside tag kinda takes the fun out of me flashing some fancy name to friends and saying "it's bespoke/custom." lol.

Hitting the tailor this weekend hopefully, we'll see if they can make it fit, otherwise it's back the Indochino. I'll keep ya posted.

yeah....i wouldnt go around flashing the suit telling people its bespoke when it came from indochino.

If it came from saville then thats a different story.
Nice looking suit, great bang for the buck, but not worthy of mentioning the fact that its custom to anyone unless you want to look like a douchebag :)

You do realize I was being sarcastic, hence the LOL.

I am far from being able to afford a saville row suit, I'm a student.

My apologies, sometimes with discussion over the internet, the emotion becomes lost. I had a hunch you might have been joking but the only thing that told me you might be serious is the critique of the suit. It seemed you were pretty upset that the suit did not taper correctly, and I am thinking, its a $400 suit, with measurements given over the internet AND a $75 credit for alteration.

With those stats, you should expect that the suit will have to be tailored in person.

Like I said, nice suit, great value....I'm sure the local tailor can fix you up so that you do not look like you borrowed your dad's suit....

look up the definition of a bespoke suit...
i read his first post, he mentioned indochino.
that is MTM at the most, not bespoke.
I know what a bespoke suit is. Thanks.

Did you look at the website?
Is it not as close to custom as it can be online with out going to tailor?

ive been to their website many times...
what are you trying to prove?
it ISNT bespoke. PERIOD.

i said in my first post that "suit isnt bespoke"
is that not true?

if you are trying to prove that indochino provides a semi-custom experience (basically in the realm of MTM, as i had mentioned before), then ok? cool? whats the point of you saying that?

my car has 4 wheels and an engine and a windshield, can i call it a bugatti?

1st...You need to relax or you won't make it around here long.
2nd.. I am not familiar with the site. Just poking around for the first time. I asked for supporting statements to your reply. Not just..that suit isnt bespoke homie....
