Hello, new member here.
I'm looking for new suit, but I have a somewhat tight budget...so around 250-350£ would be nice (400-550$), or even cheaper.
I live in Norway, and unfortunately there's just too few retailers that can offer anything decent at that price when it comes to suits and fine clothing, especially in the city where I live (Not to mention that everything is incredibly expensive and overpriced here)
Since our currency is pretty strong these days, I thought it would be nice to keep the shopping strictly online, preferably from a UK based shop since the VAT/Taxes can be deducted, and I'll further save money on import.
I'm 6'2'' tall and have a slim/athletic build, slightly broader/bigger around chest and over shoulders since I lift actively.
Last year I bought a Grey Hugo suit(Slim 'Amaro/Heise'), and it was the best fitting suit off-rack at the store...but it's getting kinda tight around the shoulders. I can get a tailor to measure me, or I could just use the Hugo suit for measurements.
I would like a suit like the Hugo, but in Navy/Blue. Normal 2 button with notched lapels, not too thin or wide lapels that is...Any ideas of something alike?
And as far as quality goes, I only wear a suit 10-12 times a year, so I'm obviously not going to see a lot of the long-term effects of cheap/poor quality, compared to someone wearing a suit 5 times a day. My main concern is frankly that it looks nice and fits well...I do have access to a free tailor for modifications though (Family friend).
Lastly: I've tried to hunt Classifieds for suit, but it's just too rare to come over anything decent at my size (44-46L)
Cliffs for the TL;DR gang:
- Live in Norway, poor selection of stores and in general high prices.
- 250-350£/400-500$ OR CHEAPER
- Strictly online, preferably UK Based store
- Tall and athletic build
- Regular 2-Button suit
- Slim Cut suit, preferably similar to Hugo as far as fit goes
- Quality isn't that much of an issue, but obviously something isn't a total POS.
