Hi, I've recently discovered this board and feels it is a treasure of valuable information about men's clothing. I'm a young professionnal working in a very casual environment but that might change as I'm planning to switch jobs by the end of 2005. To that effect I want to add a few important items to my wardrobe, most notably a new suit. I'm a very slim guy and wears about 36R (sometimes S since the jackets now seem to be longer than before, of course this varies from maker to maker...) in tightly fitting brands like Etro and Dolce & Gabbana. Do any of the experienced posters have any other brands to suggest that might fit a guy like me, something like Canali is probably too big and most Brioni would feel the same I'm affraid (or maybe I wasn't lucky at my local store with this particular brand...). I'd be delighted to find advices from ebay buyers/sellers. On another topic I'm planning to get new chelsea boots and was looking at Prada, I already own clothes from that particular maker and tend to enjoy them, even though they're somewhat tacky. Do you think I should go to another brand that offers similar or better value and what would you suggest. I've been looking at prada boots on bluefly and they're about 269, I'd like to pay half that price, if possible, considering I live in Canada and have to pay shipping, exchange rate and prohibitive fees of all kind. Thanks for your help.
