    Over the last couple of months, my wardrobe has changed. Reading many posts here, going from relaxed fit jeans to slim fit jeans, getting rid of traditional casual t-shirts and going to polo shirts, switching shoes, etc.

    Here's something I have yet to tackle. Slim fit suits and jackets.

    I'm 170 pounds, 6'2 1/2'. Age 25 and on a budget. Where should I look for a complete slim fit suit (including dress pants) and where should I look for slim fit suit jackets? Remember I'm on a budget. My location is Orange County, CA.

    Thank you!

    "On a budget" is overly vague... an exact price point would be nice. Many labels produce a slim or "super slim" line. Really need to know the budget.

    On the other hand, why not go to a few stores and try some pieces on? Remember; if you find something that fits really well in the shoulders and chest you can always get it tailored in the midsection for a relatively small fee. Once you find some brands you like you can look at the S&B forum here as well as ebay to get it at a lower cost.

    Also... suit supply.

    I supose you're already working and not a student anymore? Luigi Bianchi Mantova / Lubiam / L.B.M. 1911. They have nice unconstructed jackets with natural shoulders. Or jackets with little lining.

    When you're realy on a budget try Suitsupply.

    Wow. Those suits at suit supply are extremely nice! Probably a bit out of my price range at the moment though. As to your question above, my "budget" is <$200. Looking around $150 but will go up to $200.

    I graduated last year, but can't find a full-time position. I'm on a couple of internships, but there's no pay. My paying job has nothing to do with my field of study, but it pays my bills.

    Looks like some nice suits too! Are they just available through their website or do they have store fronts? It wasn't clear while hunting around their website. Last question is price. Above Suitsupply prices I assume?
