Question on slim fit suits (modern cut)
I just registered on the forum, hoping for some inspiration / ideas. I've been eating very healthy since January and as a result non of my suits fit :) I'm now 38" chest and 30" waist with 32" legs.
I've been looking for 2-3 suits to replace my old ones. Last few years I was shopping in Jaeger and Austin Reed, but the cuts are not exactly slim and they look / feel a bit old fashioned. Austin Reed had a modern slim cut but they had gone with plain strong blues and light greys (on trend this year?) which I feel wasn't going to be subtle enough for work this year.
I've also been in:
- COS (only a couple of very simple suits, quite cheap material, looked creased)
- Massimo Duti (fairly plain range, nothing that excited me)
- Zara (very cheap, all creased)
I had high hopes for REISS, but considering the prices are quite high the selection was quite plain and the cut also didn't look that modern. Maybe I'm being too picky?
I have had some success though, I bought one suit in Bannana Republic - BR Monogram charcoal pinstripe, I really like the slim fit and style of this one and it fits perfectly of the rack (£350)
home | Banana RepublicBut all their other suits are quite a bit cheaper looking.
So question is, can anyone recommend where I can get similar style / fit but with different materials / colours for £300-400 mark? I'd really like a dark blue with a very subtle pinstripe or I have been thinking about a brown - is it back in style...??
I have quite fair complexion and I find grey makes me look older than I am so that's kind of out :(
Sorry for the huge ramble... any suggestions highly appreciated :)
