I am about to purchase a new suit and wanted some input from you guys. I am a tall (6'2") and slim (160 lbs). Usually wear 40 L. Looking for something that fits me well. Tried on a Z Zegna at SAKS and it fit nicely. Thoughts? Any names that I should look at? Thanks in advance.

How much was it? Right now at Saks, to the extent that there's any stock left, there are great prices on a lot of good suitmakers. And for many of the others, you'll pay less for the label than you will with the Zegna. But if you like it, knock yourself out.

Im your height and weight and a 40 Z Zegna swims on me.

I bet you would look better in a 38.
