I've made up my mind now about wearing a tie clip with a silk knit, and I'll do that the next time I wear one of my silk knit ties. However, the idea of a tie clip with a wool knit tie still throws me off a bit. Something about the thickness and softness of the tie... I can't quite put my finger on it.

Something else to look for, and I don't know how available it is either on sale, or on the internet, but have a look for Pal Zileri. If you like a slim cut that's still classic, it would be a good option. PZ suits are easily as nice as Canali (moreso if you ask me) and they fit nicely on thinner guys. The only thing is, you'll have to find it on sale because the price is in about the same range as Canali and Zegna. I just think the product, and the way it's cut, is...

And all of the cheaper CK suits I've come across have been a fairly boxy cut. The Ted Baker suit will be fused as well, but will likely be closer to the slim cut you're looking for. If you want my two cents on it, I would never buy a CK suit, regardless of whether it's fused or canvassed. I don't like the styling or...

The Prada shirts we carry in my store are a size 38 chest for a 15 collar. I'm not sure if there are different lines out there that measure to another scale, but that's all I've seen.
