I'm a relatively young guy looking for a suit that reflects that. I'm also new to buying suits so I don't entirely know what I'm doing. I really like the look of the j crew ludlow. I'm reading on this forum that could get better quality for the same price point elsewhere. I'm fine with that. Can you point me to an good alternative that is similar is cut? If it helps, I'm 6-0", 185lbs. (not sure I can pull off the ludlow). Every OTR suit I've tried is too wide in the shoulder for my chest size. Any recommendations?
My choices are very limited in terms of local stores. I'm guessing I'll end up purchasing online. But I'm very hesitant to do so without trying it on first. I get frustrated because every website I go to has a slim fit, modern fit, very slim fit, classic fit, etc. They all have there own definition. Without trying them on, I don't know if they will fit properly. Any advise? How do you all purchase?
Next question, what is everyone's opinion of cotton suits? Will they stay in style for years to come? I like the casual look and am leaning towards that. Will I find one in a medium gray? Or do they usually come in lighter colors?
