Hello, I've had trouble finding slim fit suits that fit my skeleton-like body. Ok I'm 5 ft 7, 34 chest, 29 waist and I need a suit that does justice. Most of the suits I tried have chest size as small as 36 inch and I dont like that, I want a suit with chest size a little bit bigger than 34 inch, and the waist no more than 31 inch. Also I need extremely high armholes, too. Are these sizes available off the shell or m2m only? Thanks a lot guys!

I'm in the same boat--my measurements are almost exactly yours. My shoulders are broad enough that I can fit a 36 short, with often substantial alterations on the side seams, and sometimes even a 38 short, if the cut is slim (think Boss).

Sadly, the easiest place to find 34 and 35S is Mens Wearhouse, though I certainly know why you wouldn't want that. Another option is Jon at Four In Hand Ties--most of his suits are available in 34 and 35S, IIRC, and he's a really friendly gent. Browse his site (there's a link at the top of the forum pages) and see whether you see anything, or just drop him a PM or email (I think his username here is FIHTies).

I've also been thinking about going MTM--probably Chan--but I can't justify the cost right now....
