Online Made-to-Measure Mistakes
- Not buying from a reputable company – make sure the company has been in business and will stay in business.
- Unrealistic expectations – online made-to-measure is not the same as a 100% custom suit. You will need to have some alternations from a tailor. Indochino will reimburse you up to $75 for alternations.
- Going trendy or super cool before having the basics – your first suit should be a color like medium gray. The lapels should be notched, two vents, two buttons, pockets with flaps, no pleats in pants, and a fun inner lining. You can also add embroidery, pick stitching, functioning button and boutonniere holes, and more.
- Not taking your time and getting help for measurements – Indochino has videos to walk you through the measurements. Once you nail the fit, you know future suits will fit you perfectly like the one before.
- Not wearing it enough – you can wear suits at other occasions than weddings and funerals. Lose the tie, pop the collar, and go out to dinner. Wear it, rock it, love it! It’s better to be over dressed than under.
