tailored suits for sexy people
OK, I’m not 100% sexy, but by September 8th I plan on being very sexy, on a scale of ‘1 to Deadlydarcy’… at least ‘deadly’. As a result I will be needing a new suit as all my suits have been purchased when my body was various different sizes.
I’d like something fitted/tailored ideally but I’m a relative nooob when it comes to suits I’m sure many of you will agree that although better than stumbling into Next/Burtons, a M&S suit will only increase sexiness on the wearer by lets say… 45% to a TSY level.
I went into a suit shop t’other day and they had some Ted Baker suits which looked nice and came in at under £300 which is an appropriate budget for me at the moment, I’m thinking £350ish might be my upper limit.
Anyway, I’m rambling like a group of old people on your favourite trail on a sunny Sunday…. any tips or advice on getting a good suit, ideally one that fits my (hopefully by the 8th sept) HUGE and INCREDIBLY SEXY muscles and slimmer waist line?
I thank you all for your advice xxPosted 5 years agoDezBSubscriber
On a similar note to Jamie – do you know anyone in the Navy?Posted 5 years ago
Naval tailors are usually Chinese blokes who can make you a suit, brilliantly tailored for a great price.
My bro was in the navy when I got married… yeah I’d show a picture, but it was in the 80s, so maybe doesn’t look quite so sexy now.Alpha1653Member
Have a look at Raja Fashions. Clicky. They tour around the UK as well as other countries and measure you up in a hotel room. You choose the fabric, the liner, cut and everything else. They take measurements and lots and lots of photos. This then gets sent to Hong Kong and a few weeks later the suit arrives. You then get a number of fittings when the company is next in the area.
When I got mine 4 years ago, they claimed to be able to make a good suit for £200 but that was a lightweight summer suit and not really suitable for the UK. Instead I managed to get a fully bespoke two piece in Super 180 with red silk liner for about £400. I’ve worn it regularly since I got it and it still looks great while my more expensive Austin Reed suits have been relegated.
Well worth it in my opinion and obviously does the job as I once managed to get a date with Miss Hungary. SCHHEERRR-WINGGGG!!!!Posted 5 years ago
Most important thing is a suit that fits well.
You don’t necessarily need tailoring it all depends on how ‘unique’ your body shape and dimensions are.
It seems that standard off the peg suits come with a 6″ drop between chest and waist measurement… if you’re buff tingz this probably won’t work.
So you could look at places that allow you to mix and match trousers and jackets.
If I was you I’d start out looking at a designer outlet place and see if they’ve got anything that fits and looks good. Different fashion houses have different generic styles that will suit different people and you can start to get a feel for what you’d like should you go down the fully tailored route.Posted 5 years ago
Philly – wait until the summer then! FFS you’ve planned every other bit of the wedding… slow down… smell some roses… come on a beach holiday with me and lube oil into my back.
Problem with fasion emsz is that it goes in and out, a bit like errr.Posted 5 years ago
Buying a trendy suit for any sort of money would be stupid IMO.
no harm in being prepared mr yeti 😀
knowing what i want and how much i should be expecting to pay in advance is surely better than trying to find the ‘perfect’ suit 2 weeks before the big day!
beach holiday, but my beach body isnt ready yet!!
I’ll bet you have no problem with a sharp slim suit my lovely

Could you not buy a Baker or Boss suit and have it adjusted? I bought a Boss suit (based purely on it being a boss suit – the fit is terrible and the material quality fairly poor – I R MUG) and ended up having it adjusted. Fits lovely now (although it doesn’t help with the quality of material).Posted 5 years ago

That’s why I’ve already booked myself a venue.
Go to the designer outlet place then. I found an Aquascutum one for 25% of it’s original price that I looked killer in.
Don’t Boss suits have a traditional ‘square’ Italian cut to them? Go PS for slim and sexy.Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
What size are you? I’ve got a couple of Ted Baker suits that I bought on a whim after finishing uni, unfortunately before I got to wear them I put on about 3 stone 🙁 so they’ve stil got the tags on them!
Think they’re 40″regular jackets and the trousers fit me when I was wearing 32″ jeans (and are stooopily long for your tailor/mum to turn up). Ones Black, the other a very dark navy, £200 each (think I paid £300) if anyone wants them.Posted 5 years agoMSPSubscriber
Yu guys have it easy though… This years colours? oooohhh, how about he same colour we did last year? and the year before that and the year before that..
How little you understand the complexity of male fashion, should it be 2 buttons or 3, 2 or 3, I’m getting confused which is best?Posted 5 years agobrakesMember
go to John Lewis or Selfridges or any other decent department store with a good range of suits, tell them what you want, what your budget is (in my opinion you should be looking at something over £300 but no more than £500). if you can’t find anything off the shelf that fits properly, ask if they have suits that can be adjusted – depending on how the suit is built they can adjust the cut across the back by adding or taking away material where the seam is, they can add or reduce material at the collar, etc.Posted 5 years ago
I bought a suit for my wedding and had it adjusted, costs £300 but it looked crap and I really regret not spending more. A year later I spent £400 on an off the shelf suit which fit properly and it’s much, much better.
In summary, the fit of the suit is more important than anything and the more you pay the better it will fit.
Oh, and get a plain navy suit.
