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.
Note: FYGblog did receive material compensation from Indochino. However, as has been discussed an unbiased view has been taken on its products.
Nice review. I have this same suit, though in 2-button. I have to check when I get home, but I recall my cuff buttons kissing more.
Thanks again for the detailed review!

I am planning on getting two MTM suits and wanted to know if it would be advisable to use the measurements from Mysuits.com to for indochino order. Or should I just get remeasured?
In the past I have always used measurements from one tailor as a starting point for another tailor. I then remeasure (or have myself remeasured) to check for any differences. I also remeasure because sometimes different brands have different ways of taking measurements, or had different measurements altogether. I would also be wary of Indochino.
On voit tout de suite que vous maîtrisez superbement bien ce que vous
Keep me posted on every thing fittings etc
I am looking for the buckles of the side tab adjusters. My tailor does not have nice options. Where can I buy these? Thank you!
