Affordable Slim, Contemporary Suit for a Slim, Tall dude

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, new to the forum, I have done some research and I am a complete novice when it comes to men's fashion. I wanted to start with a good suit that I can wear on job interviews as well as around town for formal occasions or a night out at a lounge, club etc. Basically a good all purpose stylish slim suit. I am 6 feet, 34 Waist and 34 Leg/Inseam. Chest is 40. So pretty slim for my height, any suggestions? Thanks fellas!

 

I looked at this http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/tommy-hilfiger-suit-grey-hairline-stripe-slim-fit?ID=660841&PseudoCat=se-xx-xx-xx.esn_results but since it is not in stores its hard to tell from the pics how slim cut and contemporary this suit is.

 

Also looked at indochino, I like their suits but again dont know which would fix my build.

I don't know if you're going to find anything stylish for that little money.

One of the criticisms of Hilfiger suits that I recall reading about were the fairly built-up shoulders. This isn't necessarily a bad thing if you need the height or bulk, but it may be off-putting for people seeking a softer (more natural) shoulder. On the other hand, there's this:

Right now you get additional 25% off with promo code "FRIEND" until 4/30, free shipping too. Tax is a problem but for $269 shipped for a jacket and trousers I just ordered a set myself today just to see how it fits. If it sucks there's a Macy's not 5 minutes away where I can return it. If it's as good as its reviews say it is, then I've got a nice disposable suit for less than 3Cs.

I suggest you get your inseam measured properly. I have doubts that you're six feet tall and have an inseam of 34 without a full set of rumples and ripples on the lower half of your strides.

The Tommy suit looks really stylish in the picture I wonder if the quality is better.

I can assure you that a mall-grade sub-$400 suit's strength isn't going to be quality. For one thing they're all going to be fused because the average mall-going, label-worshiping plebe isn't going to know any better. At least Suit Supply's stuff (most of it, anyway) is half-canvassed which should hold shape through a few more wears and dry-cleaning cycles than the Tommy or Bar III garbage linked above.

 

The only reason why I'm looking at one myself is that I actually need a disposable suit.

+1 on suitsupply. But hurry, the spring collection is being sold very fast and choices are narrowing

For those that buy from suit supply do you size down? 40's chests seem huge? It looks like I would be a 36-38?
