So I'm currently shopping for a 38L 2button suit in a charcoalish colorway. Budget is $400-500 on sale. Purpose of suit is for internship interviews in the summer and professional interviews when I graduate in 1-2 years. Plus the random wedding or whatever. I'm 6 2 155, 36" Chest, the shoulders on my shirts measure 18" Best fit I found was a 40L Hugo Boss. The shoulder were a bit wide, the back needed quite a bit taken out, the sleeves had rivets that perhaps could be pressed out as well as some torquing, the front drape was pretty awful but for $769 retail fused canvas what do you expect... Went to Northpark in Dallas today. Found: Nordstroms's had a slimmer Hugo Boss in 40L. Neiman Marcus: Nothing at any price range Barney's: Nothing at any price range... well a longer 38r for $2200 that was short Hugo Boss Store: had one gross fabric in 40L and could order a couple others in Jcrew: Had the navy colorway of the 3button Ludlow no longs. The 38R was pulling the back vent and the front a bit - Seemed too small. The 40R seemed a touch too big but no longs so didn't spend much time. Then at stores outside the mall: Jos. A Bank - what a joke Off 5th- no Longs in 38 or 40 Nordstrom Rack - no longs in anything decent 38 or 40 Tomorrow: Saks Zara Men's Wearhouse (so help me god) I may just have to keep my eyes out for the next couple months. It's a pretty bad plight.
