Post pictures of your new M2M suits!

How is the fit and feel? Comments of service and delivery time?

For those of you who have had these suits for 6+ months, how are they holding up? How often do you wear them?

Exactly my kind of topic so thanks for starting it! I will definitely be posting pics if/when I do go through with that BMV Bespoke (or other) process I mentioned here. :lol:

I have suits from both Indochino and IM-Label. I'll post pictures in a month or so when I'll actually have to start wearing suits everyday.

I gave Modasuite a shot a while back, and I've received a few things from them including a suit.

Quality is top notch. Nothing else to really add here. :)

Customer Service - One word: amazing. They used to have a live chat, but they respond to emails within a day or two. If you even have the slightest problem with something, they do what they can to fix it, even if it means remaking the product, swapping it, etc.

Measurements - I had a problem with a pair of pants - was a mix between measurement and crafting. However they corrected it (plus some), and the new pants are great - so that is alright. They also offer a fit guarantee - you can take it to any tailor and get reimbursed up to $60 (I think) worth of alterations or you can have it remade if it'd be too much money or something.

Turnaround time - meh. I believe one of my suits took 6 weeks, but I ordered a shirt and it was 2.5 weeks (mtm). So, I guess it really depends on how busy they are. They're made it China, shipped to Montreal, then shipped to you.

Overall, pretty good experience for a completely online tailor. I'd recommend them to anybody. Also looking forward to reading other reviews!

for the record, MTM =/= Bespoke
+1

It is a completely different experience and there is maybe one true bespoke tailor in all of the GTA. All others are bastardizing the word "bespoke".

Not by a long shot.

Thanks - focusing on the M2M variety here (unless those places to M2M as well - where they take your measurements and have some place in Asia do the work?)

Since no one is posting up pictures here's a link to a Indochino thread that has some pictures. It's a long thread though so you may have to dig a bit.

Edit: The last couple of pages has some pictures.

Be warned that Spiros tends to be more traditional. Some may find his suits 'boxy'. If you want a fashion forward suit he's not your best bet.

Here's a thread about him with links to some pictures.

I just had a suit made for me by Caruso's on the Danforth - I'm happy with the outcome and their service. They made the suit for me from scratch in house, it wasn't made overseas. They also have off the rack suits there too, I opted for a custom made though.

It's a small family run shop, been there forever, I was referred there by a colleague and it all turned out great. They are more expensive than the other places listed in this thread, but that's because they aren't paying 15 cents an hour for someone to make the suit in China. The old man there has been doing this for ~50 years, he told me stories of famous people he's made suits for, former Prime Ministers, basketball players etc. He's got some pictures up in the store with them, pretty cool.

I'll be posting my IM-Label suit when I get it. It would be useful to post the price you paid for your suit as well guys.

Good idea. My suit (mentioned above) was ~$600, but I got it for a steal of a deal from the guys at Modasuite for $290 shipped.
