Salutations Gents,

I am a 25 year old guy with a penchant for suits. I own a slim fit Zegna, Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren and a couple Zara's, but none of them have a slim enough leg opening. I am searching for a Slim Fit Suit, preferably three piece or double breasted, that has a small leg opening(I believe they call this carrot or tapered leg) I am simply looking for suggestions of brands/fits to look up or to try out. I have been thinking about trying out a Suit Supply Washington fit Suit or ordering a custom suit with my specific leg opening preference from Thick as Thieves. Any suggestions would be great. I am looking to spend under $1,000. Cheers!

I just moved back to Dallas from LA and don't have a trustworthy tailor here yet. I feel like adjusting the leg opening is a more complicated job than your basic alterations lady can handle. I have had a few take in my shirts and they did a piss poor job.

I would suggest finding a trustworthy tailor (on yelp maybe?) and not an alterations person. You may have better luck that way.

Fraiche - Will do, thanks!

Bellyhungry - they certainly have the slimmest leg openings I've seen, but it is a piece out of my price range for this next purchase.. thanks!
