Indochino Suit: How is the fit?

Indochino Suit: How is the fit?
I’m pleasantly suprised, because of all the negative stigma toward Indochino.https://imgur.com/gallery/0QzcB2xHeight: 5′ 3″Weight:130 LB​Obviously it’s not perfect. But I am quite happy with the material and color and the fit as well. But the fit is not perfect yet.I plan on remaking this with these adjustments:-extending jacket length by 1/2 inch (looks too short, esp in the front)-reducing rise/crotch area 1 inch-raising bottom of armholes by 1 inch-opening up thigh area by 1/4 inch-opening up leg hole by 1/4 inch-opening up sleevehole by 1/4 inch​My only gripe is that they say they use real horn buttons on their website (AND they show a picture of black horn buttons >,>……), but the black buttons on this suit do not feel and look like horn. Apparently some of their buttons are horn but not the black ones, or so I heard from one of their employees.Obviously with any MTM you need a lot of patiece, even if you don’t have a event/deadline, which I don’t have, so I’ve got the time.But I think if you’re willing to be patient with the shipping time/adjustments/remakes and work on getting that perfect fit, you’ll be quite happy. Just wait for a good sale and make sure you’re getting a good fabric too (apparently they have good durable fabrics but also crappy ones, again I heard from a former employee. I chose a good one thank goodness)

Caring of viscose shirts

Caring of viscose shirts
Hey!I bought some viscose shirts in the last couple of weeks and I had to realize that they shrink a LOT. I followed the instructions and only washed them at 30°C but even then the shirts shrink significantly.One of the shirts is from H&M, it is 40% viscose and 60% cotton, size M, which fit me slim, but it was not restricting my movement and after the first wash cycle it shrink roughly 10 cm in diameter around my waist, so now I can barely button it up. Thankfully H&M will refund me for this one, but I bought an other pair to test it with cold water.The other shirts are from Mango, they are pure viscose, size M as well, but they fit really loose. Problem is even worse: after a handwash cycle in lukewarm water, and not only did the shirt shrink roughly 10 cm in diameter, 5 cm in length (this is not really a problem, still plenty long) but the two sides of the collar shrink differently, so now it is damn near impossible to make it look good. Although I can still button this up, the bottom of the shirt flares out and because it is a striped shirt, it shows that it is tight around my chest.I have one more shirt I ordered from Mango, which I have not worn yet and I can take a picture comparing the shirts after one wash cycle.So finally my question: does anyone have any idea how to stop viscose shirts from shrinking? Or any idea weather it can be reversed? I dig all three of the shirts and I would love to be still be able to wear them. Thanks in advance guys!

Wearing formal clothes in casual environment

Wearing formal clothes in casual environment
So I like to dress up as an sort of “classy villain” type of characters that I see in films or anime. I like to wear suits, shirts and trousers (all black), sometimes slick my hair back (like S;G 0 Okabe Rintarou), planning to grow some kind of goatee beard to look like Kaiki Deishuu, but I still try to not go too much overboard. A lot of people in my university have some crazy colored hair or clothes that I can’t even tell apart, so I thought how I would be different if I would dress up more formally? I’ve always liked dressing up like that since school and I don’t really care that much if it really fits the environment I’m in right now. I just love doing this stuff, nothing else. So I want to ask – what do you feel about wearing right type of clothes for different situations? If clothing isn’t strictly regulated, would you rather try to fit in the environment or wear something that you personally like?
