I am relatively new to purchasing suits and would appreciate any help that can be offered... I like a very specific style of suit. By this I mean a slim cut. No pleat pants. I do not like big shoulders or lapels (although the lapels do not have to be overly thin). Double vented rather than single. I often refer to this look as 60s London and I think it is what people refer to when they mention Italian cuts, though that might not be entirely accurate. As a point of reference, if anyone has seen the film Gangster No 1, I really like the style of suit Paul Bettany's character wears throughout. Now I realize he is probably wearing some five thousand dollar Saville Row job... Are there any off-the-rack designers who make suits that come close to matching my preferences? Any recommendations?
