Oy vey, its like a fat woman in a mini skirt and blouse with hordes of clevage exposed. Plus they fit like shit, make your feet look like gunships and are constricting as hell.
I think when many Americans say 'slim fit', they are thinking of an 'European fit'. Which means well-fitted. I mean, no offence to trads, but straight-sided sack, dart-less suits are just deplorable.

As someone who tends to only wear slim suits, I would point you to Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, Paul Smith, Dior Homme, Lanvin, Ralph Lauren PL, Duncan Quinn.

My favorite fitting is Dolce & Gabbana as it has a great slim trouser and nice shoulder and armhole.

I despise baggy clothing so it must be slim fitting. Thanks for the help. Please note I live in North Carolina and we dont have any good stores for suits.

At that price point D&G and Z-Zegna are decent choices.

Since you live in NC I would recommend going to see the Billy Reid suits. They are slim and for a good price.

I think you will be safe with pretty much any "fashion" brand. ie. prada, gucci, dolce and gabbana, bottega veneta, dior, z zegna, ralph lauren black label.
