    Hi all,

    Been reading this forum for a while and am finding it very useful. Now I'm making my first post.

    I'm just wondering which brand and line of clothing have suit jackets that have a nice athletic/"V" shaped cut (smaller waist, but larger chest)?

    I have been looking at Hugo boss, Armani, Christian Dior, Corneliani and Zegna suits but i'm not really familiar with any of them.

    Thank you in advance for you help.

    Cheers,
    Jeremy

    Canali. Ask to see models 13 and 14. I think the 13 has a nicer shoulder. Also, going with Canali ensures you a well-constructed suit and a fairly reasonable price.

    Some other brands to look at, maybe on Bluefly:
    Paul Smith, Etro, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Prada, Belvest.

    Fill in where you live in your profile. It may give people specific stores/places for you to check out.

    Go try on some suits in person. It will help you decide what you like, and give you a good idea what works well for your build.

    Even if you don't live near a Neiman/Saks/etc., it's worth a trip before you start plunking down your dollars.
