im a fairly skinny guy (underweight...) and im looking for a slimfitting blazer just like the one in the pic! i tried on dozens of blazers of wich most didnt fit and the ones that did were meant to be a bit loser generally and felt very unsatisfying. and i wanted to avoid buying a too baggy blazer just to get it to the tailor...
the problem here is that a slimane original would be too expensive for me. so i was hoping someone could recommend me brands (that i may have overlooked) that carry a similar cut.
thanks.

Zara does nice slim-fit stuff at a low price point. Also, an alterations tailor can do wonders with an OTR jacket towards making it more slim fitting, if you find one that fits OK and just needs tweaking.

Hate the aesthetic. I like the look of db suits on slim men. It doesn't give off the vibe "trendy douche". Or does it.

thanks! i totally forgot to check zara. but i have two new (kinda dumb) question now:
1. what does OTR mean? 2. would you recommend a specific fabric (of the jacket) for a lanky guy?

OTR = Off the rack.

I don't think fabric will make much difference as far as affecting the appearance of your lankiness. Choose what you like.
