Am I screwed? Suit for 28 inch chest

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm 25 years old.

My measurements:
Chest - 28 inches
Over shoulders and chest - 38 inches
Waist - 27 inches
Hips - 30 inches

Where can I buy a suit for under £400 that can fit me?!
I'm based in London, UK.

Is it possible to get a tailored suit for under £400?

Slim fit size-34 sports coats fit me somehow. However, suits do not! I just tried a 34 from Zara and the chest has MASSES amount of room inside.

The shoulders, sleeve lengths, jacket length, etc are fine. Just so much room in the chest area. I could fit my head in there...

Is it worth getting a 34 tailored to fit me? Or is it not possible to make that suit fit a 28?

The suit is for interviews and for wearing to work (lawyer)

If a size 34 is too big for you you have no choice but to try boys sizes or MTM.

Do you know any place to get decent quality boys suits (essentially, kids)?

Ralph Lauren makes kids sizes to 20

The UK website only has to age 14. And I can't see any suits frown.gif

But thanks, I checked other designers and some high end brands do cheap kids suits (Armani, jpgaultier, etc)

I just hope they fit! I tried Zara kids (age 13-14!?!?) but it was too short in the jacket and shoulders.

Check out DNA Groove, they have a couple of sales agents in the UK and they'll despatch clothes from Italy. They make stuff in relatively small sizes and all their stuff are always limited editions so you'll not look like everyone else. This is their size chart http://www.dnagroove.it/en/size-chart.html To view their stock click the "Back to navigation" link top right.

Doesn't make much sense.

If you have a 28 inch chest a 34 sports coat should be huge. But you say it fits. But then you say the 34 suits are too big.

If you measured right you have a 10 difference between your shoulders and chest. With a 28inch chest?? You'd never fit kids coats. You'd never fit anything off the rack. 10 shoulder/chest is wider then normal for a 40inch chest.

But you've got a 27 inch waist??

Either you've measured wrong or you'll need to find something made for you.

I've had a friend and my mother measure me. Their measurements we're virtually the same.

I'm extremely thin. I don't know what else to say.

I have two men's sports coats from Zara (S size). They fit fine.... At least to me they fit fine.
I just tried a men's 34 suit and it is miles too big. The sports coats are actually a little tight when buttoned. The chest still has some room, but I think the skinny fit makes it virtually perfect for me.

Their suits, on the other hand, are not skinny fit whatsoever... Hence the massive amounts of room.

I can post pics if it will help determine my size?

physically small and tight budget are a terrible combination.

The problem is those measurements aren't really "thin" shog[1].gif

You've got broad shoulders.

You've got a virtually the same waist and chest measurements.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I don't think my shoulders are broad at all. Just my chest is tiny in comparison :-P

I'm 5"7 (170cm).

How can you say I'm not thin? I weigh 110 lbs, basically all bone :-s

I'll upload some pics once I get to my main computer.
