I read complaints on this forum and others regarding difficulty in finding OTR suits that fit an athletic build.
Even the brands such as Ralph Lauren Black Label, J Crew Ludlow etc seem to be tailored towards a slim build and not necesarily an athletic build. I believe they are typically drop 7. In my personal experience, I still have to get some waist suppression done with these brands.
So why isn't there a suit company that is specifically targeted towards the athletic (lets say drop 10) group. This might not be the largest demographic, but there must be a certain fraction of men that would appreciate a cut to fit this build that is also relatively affordable. I am thinking the 20-30's crowd who don't want to spend extra money/hassle on tailoring. Perhaps something along the business model Proper Cloth uses for shirts, or a Suit Supply type company with a focus on personal tailoring for the athletic build?
Am i missing something. Is there something comparable already out there?
