    Hi I'm new to this site, so I do apologise if I have posted this in the wrong place. Anyway, I'm looking at buying a suit, my first one, and I've measured my chest to be 35.5 inches. So would I buy a 36inch slim fit suit or even bigger?

    You cannot fit clothes on the Internet. Go to some shops and try them on and see what fits. The cut of each model of garment and manufacturer will differ so there is no hard a and fast rule t spare you the effort.

    That's the kind of rude answer that drives off new members.

    Yes, there is a grain of truth to the "go to some shops" line, but someone needs to have an idea of where to go, especially when the size is unusual. So, it's somewhere in the UK? Not that the typical first suit should be expensive, but what is the budget?
