Update: Indochino Measurements page now shows true garment measurements

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

I was writing about the changes on the measurement page some users have experienced yesterday. Thanks for your comments, I have also received info from Indochino about what actually happened.

Let me quote Chris, one of Indochino's concierges:
"We recently overhauled our back-end database to display customer account histories under the true garment measurements, rather than the physical measurements that were displayed before."
This is actually a pretty good thing, once you know what's going on. The measurements you originally take for your suit are translated into a digital pattern. After you received your suit you will have a base to work on and adjust your digital pattern according to your preferences. The digital pattern measurements now don't show what you had originally input, they show the true garment measurements. This makes it easier to determine the changes you need and makes the whole process more transparent.

So, if you see the measurements changed, there is no need to be concerned. Your suit should still fit fine (especially if it's not your first order and you got your measurements figured out) and if you still need to change something, it's easier to do so.
