    I own at least a dozen suits with brands like Zegna, Canali, Paul Stuart, Hugo Boss, Joseph Abboud, but the most comfortable suit I have ever worn is my Samuelsohn Performance suit (I now own two). This suit is like wearing a cloud. It is light, sleek, flexible and above all it's sharp. While I pride myself in having some depth I am having a hard time looking at other suits when I know how comfortable that style is.

    It is about the third of the price as my Zegna but it's three times more comfortable.

    What is the most comfortable suit you own?

    For me "comfort" usually has more to do with fit than with the manufacturer.

    Cheers,

    My most comfortable suit is definitely my Despos.

    Within OTR though, I would say I have found the neapolitan brands like Isia or Kiton to be the most comfortable. Very light with great range of movement in the arm and shoulder. I don't buy them because at their price I mine as well go bespoke. I recall asking the sales person why Isia was so much more comfortable than Zegna and he explained that they have a high armhole and a larger sleeve eased into a smaller armscye.

    I've never worn a samuelson.
