Bespoke or Off The Rack?
I'm a fairly regular size and most suits have always fit me 'well', but when I took the plunge and purchased a made to measure / bespoke suit, it completely changed my opinion on how a suit should fit. They're amazingly good.
If you choose well it's the kind of thing you collect and pass down to your kids. I know I wish my old man had done this.
And as Jeff says - You need to choose well. Shoulders are the thing you need to look for. They need to be masters at creating soft well structured shoulders.
Why? How tall are you and how much do you weigh?
Much less chance of it coming out looking like a botched abortion.
Why would he want his suits, they are made to fit his father's body, not his. Seros22 meant passing on your own appreciate for fine clothes to your kids, not the actual clothes themselves.
Seriously? You recycle dirty socks but won't consider altering and then wearing a father's suit?
