    I am trying to find a casual, cotton suit in a stone color, but cannot find one that comes close to fitting. I did locate a Calvin Klein in the right color, but the fit through the middle was full and balloon like. Personally I am 5'8 155 lbs, slim and fit.

    Can anyone point me towards a brand that is slim, stone color and decent quality??

    Thank you for your time and help.

    If what you are interested in is really finding a slim fit shirt then I will recommend you take a look at this thread http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=35147

    It may sound stupid, but you are aware that you can (and probably should) pay for a tailor to take in the sides for an off the rack suit.

    J Crew Ludlow. No personal experience with it but I have seen it get some positive reviews around the board. Dig a little deeper and you should be able to determine if it's something you're interested in.


    Bingo that's probably it, but if you know of other options, let me know...my budget is about $1,500.

    +1 to the Ludlow. BB has a cotton twill Fitz under summer suiting that also might fit the bill.

    I wouldn't spend too much on a cotton suit, as it won't wear as well as wool and will tend to require more drycleaning/pressing.

    Haspel makes a 100% Cotton gab in a slim fit. It is in their instock book, so any Haspel retailer can order you one.
