    I know Fitzgerald is their slimmest line, but how would they compare to a Hugo Boss or Burberry suit, in terms of slim fit?

    In ascending order of slimness, BB suits go Madison, Fitzgerald, Regent, and Milano. Can't help with the rest of our question.

    The Milano line is legitimately slim, even by fashion standards. The rest of the lines are a bit fuller. Fitzgerald is slim by classic BB standards, but it's not all that slim vis-a-vis the department store designer brands. Many here would regard that as a good thing. Even the skinny ones among us (who are numerous).

    but is Milano actually a 2 button suit?

    Yes, as even a cursory glance at their website would inform you.
