    Hi guys,

    Im looking for clothes that are slim fitted, classic style at a reasonable price. I may be asking for alot but I know what I want.

    I like Diesel's fit but style is more for the younger age and price is too high for me.

    I like Banana Republic's style but the fit isn't that great and price is okay.

    I dont mind shopping at Ebay but need some clear direction.

    Any help would be appreciated since I know you guys know what you are talking about.

    Thanks again.

    The Professor

    Are you looking for suits/sportcoats, or shirts and trousers, or what?

    Some affordable options off the top of my head:

    Suits: Corneliani, from STP
    Shirts: I have my OTR ones taken in by my tailor; rarely do I find slim-fits slim enough. Jantzen is a low-cost possibility. Brooks offers slim-fits that are relatively inexpensive, though I don't consider them all that slim. Tywrhitt too.
    Trousers: Some Polo blue label and some mall brands, such as J. Crew. Or you could eBay Zegna and Incotex, along with Ralph's black label

    Before posting you should try a quick search. You'll find this thread helpful, http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=22040. It is titled "Reasonably priced slim fit work attire" and just 4 days ago so would have been the first search result using any of the words from your title.

    My apologies if I come across as an ass. Welcome to the forum.

    Somewhere near the bottom end of the market, the full canvassed Zara suits would seem to be a decent buy
