OTR Suit Design / Style Question

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody,

I was wondering if you all could suggest a brand of OTR suits (if it exits) that has qualities like the following. Also, if my assumptions behind why i want these qualities are wrong, please tell me i'm a moron :-)

- Relatively unpadded shoulders (i have fairly well structured shoulders)
- Tapered jacket (i'm not exactly skinny anymore, but at 5'9 and a size 33 waist, sack suits kill me)
- Medium gorge (i'm a medium height, i guess)
- High armholes (tend to wear a suit when out and about, and like to be able to reach without pulling the back)

also, is there something i'm missing as I look into my next suit purchase?

I'm about the same build, looking for the same thing. If you find anything promising, please let us know!

Tony, appreciate the suggestion, and i'll definitely take a close look at it. However, if memory serves, that's a $2k+ suit. Do you happen to know of anything in the $1,000 to $1,500 range?

I am a new start-up made to measure service based out of tempe, az..

I have a suit I call the Modern Londoner...

It has hand set higher and trimmer armholes... a higher waist supression, Natural shoulders and a bit of a tappered sleeve for more movement.. You can customize it completely to your specs... This is a full canvas suit made with a great Imported Italian canvas front (most companys use a lower grade canvas) and with a designer fabric from Barberis, Zegna etc.... it makes a great suit... and my prices start at $695 and am willing to work with you.. All of my suits are bench made here in the U.S....

BB Fitzgerald should satisfy all your requirements except for (unfortunately) that they are single vented.

sorry suitupshop, i'm looking for otr, and my guess is with all the sponsors this place won't be thrilled with your advertising. i'll have to try on a bb fitz, so thank you cturner! any other suggestions?

I would suggest Sameulsohn Talbot model.
I would also suggest certain current Belvest models but
they run higher than you want to spend, unless you can get them
online.

isn't that sort of the whole Neoplotan look?

Brooks Brothers Milano fit (slimmer than the Fitz, sometimes has double vents) Z Zegna Drop 8 fit Paul Smith Etro Brave fit There's lots of labels that have what you're looking for. That's just a few off the top of my head.

For OTR Samuelsohn has a great new model (can't remember the name)... Other than that, quality wiae, I think you would have to go MTM or MTO
