I would understand that I couldn't buy 2 pairs for $20...

I heard that the "Joseph" suit might be slimmer - but the store I went into said they didn't carry it so I couldn't try it on. To give you an idea of my size, last year I bought some JAB suit separates in a 37 jacket and 32 pants. Even then, the shoulders in the jacket are too big (the 36 jacket was too short and too tight).
