    OTR = ?
    Off The Rack, i.e. not made to measure or custom sewn from scratch. Basically what most people do when they buy a suit from a store in normal sizes and then having it fitted or altered where necessary. And your mom is right. Don't spend too much as you will outgrow this suit and likely not wear it all that much.

    You will have a hard time finding 36's at most places. I think H&M and Banana Republic are some of the only retailers that stock this size, they should both be fine for what your looking to spend. You won't find anything slim fitting/modern at department stores.

    yeah i just saw a thread about this store called jump the gun, and they carry as small as 34s. only problem is that they don't have very good pictures and they are in brighton.

    Why do you assume i have bad style? I've already got some ankle boots that I'll probably wear.

    People - he's 16 years old and he doesn't need to spend crazy money on a suit when he's got a budget. O/P: I just did a FULL scan of value RTW suits from normal retail stores myself, what a PITA it was! I would highly recommend you go to the following and try stuff on: Express, Zara, H&M Express would actually be my top pick as they have a wide selection of colours and styles; I liked the light gray and black producer ones. http://www.express.com/catalog/thumb...bCategoryId=61

    What? IMO Express has less selection of colors and styles than H&M, and the cut of most of their suits isn't really slim/skinny.

    I recommend that you pick up a 36R from H&M and take it to a tailor to make some minor changes. I always find that the sleeves run a little long and theres always room to take the jacket in on the sides/back to give it a slimmer cut
