tried on a 2 button paul smith today and fell in love with the fit - but im not about to pay retail 1800cdn for it.

anyone know of similar fitting manufacturers/designers??

thx in advance

at that pricepoint it's probably a white label "mainline" suit, which are full hand canvassed....so you're not going to find an inexpensive similar fitting OTR suit with that sort of construction very easily. But H&Ms $250 slimfit 2 button suit is fairly similar to a Paul Smith if you have a store near you since they have no online sales.

that price is crazy. are you in Toronto? try the coop ink. at Young/Lawrence, Korrys in the Danforth area or even Stollerys for a better suit for less than half that price.

Try The Bay at the Pacfic Centre. The last time I was their they had some Pal Zileri suits that appeared to be somewhat slim fitting. They also have Smauelsohn suits on sale on a regular basis. Not slim fitting, but excellent value for the money nevertheless. Holt Renfrew normally have a sale on during August and early September to make way for the autumn/winter collection. The suit, if still in stock, will have its price dropped by a third.

Too bad There are literally no good places to get nice suits in Vancouver except Harry Rosen. Holt's prices, as noted, are a joke. Try eBay!

It's shocking what Holts charges for basic London Line Paul Smith. People pay it because they just don't know any better.
