I just got a shirt from Spurr. It's really slim. I kinda like the fit at first but it began to feel a little too tight at the chest. How tight should a shirt fit? or is it just that i am not used to such a fitted shirt yet? I can't button the first button and I am worried it's so tight that when i move around i'd show my undershirt inbetween the buttons.

A couple firms had their recruiters "write" back saying that they either want MBAs or people with a bit of (non-consulting, whatever that may be) experience and invited me to give them a call in a couple...

Obviously MBB are rather picky, so putting all your eggs into this basket is risky. There are many smaller firms out there, but I think they can be even pickier when somebody doesn't fit the standard MBA mold. I think the way it works with MBB is that they want to...

Not sure if I am just hitting my head against a wall at this point... Is it worth trying again or do those prior failed attempts pretty much put me out of the running? At least they encouraged you to reapply. I...

It honestly look like a sack suit, and for a D&G suit, you know there's something not right. While it sucks to be in a difficult size to fit, it makes it even more important to choose wisely. At this point, I don't think it's worth spending oodles...

Paul Smith should fit smaller/slim guy like you too..... Have you tried those? How soon you need to wear suits? Do you only want to add to your wardrobe? Thanks for the...

Maybe you can get that fix I think, but I am not an expert. the website i bought the suit from didn't post the measurement. just mentioned it's tapered. i didn't think it would make such a big difference considering D&G is known slim, the pant is "tapered" and it's my usual size. now i know how off it...

What is your exact chest size, measuring with a tape-measure? hmm....i never used a tape to measure myself following this post on SF: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...asurement+suit I measured one sportcoat that fits me best, the chest is 18.25". The new Dolce has a measurement of 18.75"
