    Slim Suit Shops

    Morning all,

    Any recommendations for good shops to pick up slim fit suits? I normally go with Topman but the material's started to feel a bit ropey and gym visits have made the jackets feel a bit...weird.

    Never sure if places like M&S will do good ones or Moss or where you folks recommend.

    Nice one.

    Reiss, Burton or Zara are probably your best bet on the highstreet, they will all do slimmer fitting suits but it depends on whether you are going by Topman's idea of slim (which is very very slim) or everyone else's idea of slim (which tends to be a bit less slim). If you go for the upper level of the market don't expect the jackets to be as short either.

    There seems to be a massive gap in the suit market between the bottom end high street and high end off the peg.

    I don't think I've ever seen my local M&S stock any suits in a size smaller than a 42, I was quite concerned.

    But otherwise Bashmore, there is your answer.

    I got a 36. I really need to start working out. On a serious note, if I do bulk up, it'll cost me a fortune in new clothes.

    Cheers guys, will check it out. I got a blue suit from M&S last year for a wedding (well, the groom got them all), and that was normal slim. Not Topman slim. I'll give them a whirl.

    Always want to buy Reiss, just can't afford to buy from there and buy food/pay rent

    Reiss have a huge sale on at the moment, you'd get a good suit for about 170 quid I'd say.

    It does really annoy me that other shops don't adopt a slightly slimmer fit, I find trousers in particular are just way too baggy, ridiculously so. Possibly cos I run a lot and so my legs are mega skinny, but it's infuriating.

    Ben Sherman hmm? I've just bought a herringbone blazer from there so will check it out.

    And Reiss is worth a look then. I was in Topman again y'day, good looking suits, but ultra skinny? No chance. Running at the gym seems to have knackered up any chance of fitting in them
