I own a few suits but I'm looking to pick up my first good-fitting suit in the $500 range. I live in Los Angeles and am 28 years old if that makes a difference.
I want something that is versatile - can be worn to business meetings, weddings, parties, etc. For this I would think a standard solid charcoal or navy suit would be best? What kind of shops should I be looking at?
Also, I am a slimmer guy - 5'9" at 155 lbs. The suits I own seem like the arms are too big. Whenever I look at magazines such as GQ the suits usually fit like a glove and the arms are slimmed down, the torso looks slimmer, etc. Would a good tailor be able to make all these adjustments or do I need to buy a suit that already fits like this before taking it to a tailor? Any suggestions on tailors in LA?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
