Hi Chaps, a real problem.

The problem for now is this. I always have had the problem with the the sizing, with the drop, as i can identify now. I am tall (approx 190 cm) and with quite wide shoulders, yet very slender at waist. A 48 (European) Armani Collezioni blazer i purchased in Italy last summer at sale fits perfectly after a small alteration at the back. It is long enough -something I appreciate

Having read your posts, i reexamined firstly myself to be "slim" and ordered " the slimmest cut" - Balenciaga at Ebay. What a dissapointment after all. Too narrow shouldered for me and at waist it is like a bell - too roomy. I also tried Costume National suits, they seem to be to short and again the pear like cut.

Perhaps, the definition "slim" is not really mine - rather "athletic"...I dont know..,

Right now, i am pondering whether i should try Helmut Lang or Gucci, or...Andrew Mackenzie at Yoox? I can only order them virtually, for i am residing in isolation from any big city, in Norway.

What is that brand with sufficient waist suppresion, the right drop and length?

Thanks

Dior homme makes a tweed overcoat that is quite slim.
