Note: This is the first review on FYGblog on Indochino. Since its publication, I have posted two other reviews of the brand, please refer to the most recent for more appropriate and timely thoughts.
This is a long time coming, overdue in fact; but it is time to wrap up the Indochino series of posts. In summary of the first two Indochino review posts (here and here) I have been pretty happy with the experience so far. We had to do a remake of the suit, which obviously was not ideal; but tolerable. The original pants fit pretty well, however, there were issues with the jacket that could not be fixed by means of simple alterations. I should note that the remake process was quite easy. Out of the box I was pretty happy with the fit of the new suit, however, a few alterations were made. Namely, the sides of the jacket brought in a little and the thighs of the pants let out a little. But let’s take a closer look at things.
In conclusion I am happy with my Indochino suit and would recommend the brand. However, I would only recommend the ‘Essentials’ collection; which is ever expanding. I think this is where the best value is, as I do not know of any other internet or brick and mortar establishment that produces made to measure suits for $400. But I do not think the quality of construction merits a purchase of a $600+ suit. Another thing I would like to note is if you are getting your first suit from Indochino allow at least 8 weeks of lead time; in case a remake is needed; once you have your fit down after the first suit remakes should not be an issue. With this all said, if your budget is $400, Indochino should be your go-to.
