    It's a bit of a crime no English cut is there.

    I like Helmut Lang's minimalist silhouette. Structured shoulders with minimal padding (but not as narrow as Jil Sander's). The barest amount of swell. Body skimming fit throughout, with just a whisper of waist suppression. Sharp as a knife.

    It's a big crime. Three Neapolitans, two Romans, and not a single Londoner? Or even RLPL?

    Very tough.

    I would go with Attolini or Kiton....

    If I had all the money in the world; it would be the Kiton K50..

    theworldsfinest.com and ebay can give you a pretty decent idea of most of these brands.

    I voted bespoke: A&S drape cut, like English Cut's.
