Suits for Slim Guy

Hi,

I’m very short and have a slim build. I’m 22, 5’4 and 105 lbs. I recently started eating more and working out more to try and gain weight, I was up to 115 actually when I played highschool sports and worked out a lot more. Anyways, I want to purchase my first suit but given my very slim build, most off the rack look, awkward. I’m not sure if it looks awkward because I’m not used to the way I look in suits or they really do look awkward. But a few that I tried on look wide on me, the length is actually not too bad I feel. Do you think this is a fair assessment or off-the-rack suits on a guy with my build? My question is, should I go with custom made? or are there certain brands that have suits that will look good? My price range is probably $250-$400 or so.

Thanks!

  1. 34 would be the smallest size. There are a few online alternatives that make bespoke (custom) suits under $500, all you have to do is send them the right measures. Have in mind that if you’re planning to grow muscle, the suit you get today won’t fit in the future. Aaron Marino (on youtube) has some suggested websites, I get indochino.com advertisement all the time, although I don’t know their price range. moderntailor.com is another one. Also, you have to consider that most off-the-rack suits will need some tailoring, so at the end the price evens out compared to bespoke (online). Good luck!
