    The topic says it all I guess. I doubt I'll get very positive answers as the french fashion world is praised for many things but not the quality of it's suits. Oh, I must add I'm 5'8 and pretty slim, wearing 36 sometimes so a slim fight might go a long way for a brand even if the quality isn't as high as something more boxy.

    not as skinny/tight a fit as dior homme but more along the slim fittingness of a jil sander or helmut lang - to some degree it's similar to some gucci suits actually

    YSL suits typically have very pointy, structured shoulders, high armholes, and a slim chest. I like them very much, but the price for Rive Gauche is rediculous.
