    you could try theory. a friend of mine swears by them, and he's the typical skinny, hipster asian build.

    +1 Theory is viewed as being way overpriced here which is somewhat true but is a great option on sale which they are now at the Theory store for 40% off. Not sure what's left but have them search there other stores if you see a suit you like that's not in your size. That's what I did and am very happy with the suit. They are the slimmest cut suits I've come across.

    Good luck with Ralph Lauren sizing and fit.
    Just look at the shoulder measurements of these suits on Ebay. According to Ralph if you are size US 38R your shoulders should be 19 1/2 ".
    Pretty much everything Ralph Lauren makes (aside from PL) is baggy and a wrong size.


    38R in Polo label, i run into 17.5"-18.5" shoulders depending on the cut.

    The Black Label and Purple Label stuff that I've tried on seem trimly cut; perhaps it's a bit more variable with the Polo suits?

    Black is slim cut, but keep in mind the shoulders are not.
