- Charles Tyrwhitt 'tailored fit' suits…
Anyone bought one of these?
I’m on the lookout for a slim-fit suit, not ultra-slim, but nicely fitted and these look pretty good on the website (but then, they always do!).
Any other ideas around the £300 price range? I want to try the Austen Reed AR Red/contemporary fit range, but they only seem to have them in the London branches.Posted 5 years agoedhornbySubscriber
I bought the slim fit and they were like a tent on me, so they were posted back
trywhitts have shops where you can try ones on, the ultra slim (tailored) are fine for those who don’t carry any spare timber – only problem is that the sale ones left are gross patternsPosted 5 years ago
Cheers for the replies guys. I’m 6’0, 40 inch chest, 32 inch waist and bang on 12 stone so whilst not a total racing snake, I still find that most suits are too boxy on me.
Think I’ll go up to London next weekend and look in Reiss, Austen Reed and some other places.Posted 5 years ago
Yes, haven’t ruled out M&S either…I have a nice navy suit with subtle pinstripes from their Autograph range, I bought it about 5 years ago and the trousers seem really baggy on me now. I think it’s just that I’ve started wearing slimmer/more fitted clothing since I bought it.Posted 5 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
I’m similar frame – found the ‘tailored’ ultra slim fit shirts from tyrwhitts a pretty good fit, if a touch boxy. Would imagine suits would have a similar fit, i’d be tempted to try one of their cheaper suits out at the sale prices but I wasn’t very impressed by the longevity of their shirts, I only got a couple of years out of them. Don’t forget to buy a 2nd pair of trousers!

Fitted in a hotel room, expect a handmade suit to appear a few weeks later. Will cost between £3-500.Posted 5 years ago
