Suit, 36R - 38R, Plain Black, Modern Fit/Cut

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've been following the forum for a while as a regular reader, and thought this would be the best place to check on anyone that might have a suit available (new/pre-owned) or any pointers in general.

I'm involved in a wedding as part of the party, and have been tasked to find a plain black suit for myself. I've been told that they would prefer I get a 2 button modern cut/fit to go with their aesthetic. Who am I to argue, it's their wedding!

So, to put the feelers out there, I'm looking for:
- 2 or 3 button
- solid black
- sizing somewhere between 36R and 38R, I have long arms but am generally trim and between 5'8" and 5'9", 135-140 lbs. depending on how good I am about junk food!
- flat front pants

Price range is anywhere from $300-800 depending on the brand, condition, etc. of the suit. I'm considering one of these "Mario Valentino" suits I saw on eBay, but I'd rather go with a brand/model that I know of.

Any help or availability would be much appreciated guys. Perhaps you have a suit like what I'm looking for that you've been thinking of getting rid of?

Have you seen http://www.thickasthievesla.com/ ? Check that place out first, may be what you're looking for. The founder is a member here ( Get Smart ) and he's good about answering questions. Size 36/38 truly slim suits are actually not that easy to find in RTW

Thanks Brian. I had looked at the site before but it's developed since then. I'll get in contact with them.

Yes, My fit is a little odd with any of those sizes, either the sleeves are way too short or the jacket is way too long or a host of other things.

Still checking the WTS board every hour...

Hi, I just came across your want ad for a black suit. Are you still looking? If so I have a new with tags Dior 2 button black suit from the 2008 spring/summer collection and is selling in the Dior Homme boutique now. It is a size 52 France. It is unhemmed and never worn and has all original tags, hanger and garment bag. I have pictures and measurements and other details on hand if you are by any chance interested. I have to sell and will very cheap! Great opportunity if the size works...

Suit sounds fantastic but that would be equivalent to an American 42 which is really too large for me, but thank you.

I have a 3 button armani collezioni solid black in 38R, and im a solid 38 (sometimes a 37). It's on the much smaller side of your budget, PM me if you're interested!

I have one of the Marco Valentino brand you mentioned. It has a good fit (a bit slim but not very slim), medium armhole (unlike some US brands) however you can take it to your tailor to take in the waist of the coat and make it looks slimmer. Not to mention a great workhorse suit with that price.
