    This is a custom-made heather gray wool skinny suit, made for me in September 2010 by Adrian Park, owner and head tailor of De Louice (http://www.louicechicago.com/index.php), a custom design and tailor shop; the suit was made by hand here in Chicago.

    When designing the suit, I had very specific requirements for its construction, which I’ll list here (and should be evident in the photos):
    * Three-season wool
    * Shorter jacket length
    * Two button front enclosure
    * High arm holes/slim sleeve lengths * Body-hugging silhouette
    * Narrow shoulders
    * No back vents
    * Very slim lapels (less than 1”)
    * No pleats
    * Suit trousers in two styles: 1) typical mid-rise skinny; 2) Thom Browne-style, with a higher waist and ankle-length hit.

    As you can see in the photos and my specifications, both the jacket and pants are very slim-fitting (though quite comfortable), with many of the trademark design features of Hedi Slimane-era Dior Homme. Be sure to check the measurements below; I am 5’10” and a shade below 140 pounds. (Given the jacket length, the suit would also work for men shorter than me.)

    Jacket
    * Armpit-to-armpit: 17 inches
    * Shoulders: 16 inches
    * Length (top-of-collar to hem): 27 inches
    * Sleeve length: 23.5 inches

    Pants
    * Waist: 15.5 inches (on both)
    * Pant length (hem to top-of-the-waist): 42/40.5 inches
    * Inseam: 32/30 inches

    The suit is basically new, worn a half-dozen times (less now as I work from home more often, hence why I’m selling); the price is 33% less than the nearly $600 I paid for the suit. Shipped in a keepsake garment bag; suit has been dry cleaned for you. Email me if you need more photos or info.
