    Anybody know a good place to find an athletic cut suit? Hopefully at a reasonable price? I am a 48-50 and can not find a suit that has pants that fit either with that jacket size I end up with 42 or so pants. :hs:

    Any advice or am I gonna have to get a custom suit?

    The places I went to that claimed that had no athletic cut suits. I look just sad in a regular cut.

    Get a sit from somewhere like K&G and get it tailored.

    It has to be tailored a lot then, a good athletic cut does not really need to be tailored. I don't want to spend the money then hack the suit up. :hs:

    Do you have any custom suits? Don't they cost around $2,000 (unless you go overseas)?

    I don't see why the average person would need to go outside of a $200-$500 range unless you work in sales or you're a lawyer or something.

    I got my last suit from Brooks brothers.

    They measured the shit outta me, made the suit, had me come back when it was ready, then I put it on and the in house tailor re-measured me and make the final cuts.

    Most badass fitting suit evar!

    (total cost was ~$700)

    it was totally worth it.

    wait...

    How big are ya, if places are turning you away?

    I had to get some custom tailoring done, and they had to use seperates to make my suit work, but by no means where they like :dunno: :sadwavey:
