I think it's a good idea to have a brick and mortar option - I think most people who are turned off by companies like Indochino are just too worried about doing their own measurements.

Put an old fat dude in a flattering suit and suddenly he is george clooney

Disagree strongly..nothing worse than some pudgy schlub in one of those fitted suits meant for someone who's in shape. It's like leggings on a fat girl..

But a fitted suit is tailored for that body shape. So you shouldn't be able to tell the difference.

You're confusing "well fitted" with "form fitting"

The whole point of fitting a suit properly is that it flatters THAT individual

well, he's certainly right in this case. A fat guy in a well fitting suit doesn't look like 10 lbs in a 5 lb bag . . .

Will do. Suits start at $450 I believe, and don't go up too much from there. All the really nice wool was $650 for a suit. I believe he just takes the suit price in any given material X 45% to get the pants price as well.

I also forgot to mention he gave me better material at a one-level-down price so another




...and? month and a bit later

I literally just picked them up last week - they were unfortunately about two weeks late from the time I was originally told they would be ready (end of Feb). That being said, I am extremely happy with them. Quality is very good, and no alterations were necessary whatsoever. He even put some pads on the inside of my elbows in the shirt to prevent my elbows from blowing through (I've wrecked a few shirts in the past like that). Shirt material is really good, collar and cuffs are great, as are the clasps/zipper on the pants. He tells you to wear them for a week or two and if you notice anything you don't like at all to just come back and he will fix it or alter it for free. I need to order a bunch more shirts and based on my experience I will be using him for the rest.

After the recommendations from this thread I decided to give O'Connors a try for a new suit. A+ shop in there, I had absolutely no idea it was so big.

Ended up picking up a nice blue samuelsohn off the rack, needed it relatively short term so didn't have time for mtm this time around. Their tailoring staff did a great job with it though and fits like a glove. Will make a great DD.

I'll definitely be going back, simple and no BS experience and a million times better than Harry Rosen. Honestly unless you want a brand name $2k+ suit i wouldn't ever go back there as mentioned earlier.

Also their shoe boutique is awesome, and I am way too picky about shoes.
