Hey Folks, I know this thread has been mute for a while, but I thought I would let all the people who mentioned that they were roughly my size and having similar problems know that I ended up buying through Thick As Thieves, and I couldn't be happier. I did all the measurements myself, got to customize every aspect of the suit, and it was made and delivered in less than a month. For anyone willing to spend just under 500, it's an excellently made, phenomenally...

I've looked at thrifts and never had any luck, but I'll keep at it.   mjd: I'll check out BB boys suits for...
Although I've found that many men on this forum have a similar dilemma, mine has an added dimension that I can never seem to address. I'm 5'5", 125lbs, and have never owned, rented, or even tried on a suit that even approached fitting me well. I only recently found a shirt that fits (the Express 1MX extra-slim fit in a Small), which despite the dubious quality is the only shirt I've ever really been happy with the fit of.   As a point of reference, I was recently...
