    You live in the UK?


    Go to Saville Row in London, maybe?


    The suit fits pretty badly.

    At a two second glance, same curtains, same window, same hair/hairline, same ill-fitting suit.

    Yeah you're 15 and don't know how to buy a suit but let's suggest Savile Row.

    you really think i have that much money to spend on a suit?Saville row its pretty expensive.
    and for the last person that replied-
    i dont like your tone, I am 18. I dont know about america, but in the UK people are more polite.
    for the others.
    I went to Zara today,returned the suit and now i got another one at Moss, the suit is from French connection. the guy from the shop said that the suit was good, a nice fit.
    i got it for about 300 dollars. they had made to measure suits,but the price was in about 500 dollars,so a little over my budget.
    after i will psot the pics with the new suit.hopefully will be better.

    Don't mind the rude people. The Saville Row suggestion was weird, since we had a good idea what your budget is based on where you got your suit. Next time, it would help to say what your budget is up front.

    At sub-500 suits, you'll want to make sure you see a great tailor for sure. That's what will raise the level, so be sure to have money aside set for that.

    Also, I'd suggest educating yourself on what makes a suit fit well. Just because the guy at the shop said the fit was good, doesn't mean it is. He's a salesman first. Some people here have even said the people at Tom Ford, whose suits cost $4000+, has fed them the same line when it wasn't true (I never had such an experience with them, but that's confirmation bias).
