Need help finding a suit

Postby bjc314 » Sat Apr 02, 2011 4:30 pm

Hey guys i have a problem with finding a suit that fits me.
Im 5'9 skinny with long arms.
Here is where the problem lies: 36 normal is too long for me. 36S fits perfect, but the sleeves are about an inch too short.
Does anyone know how much it usually costs to tailor a suit?

They will custom make a suit for $350. A little steep but will look sharp and last a while.

36s is short by 2 inches. The most they can extend it by is 1 inch.

Get the regular not the short and have the sleeves taken in and the jacket shortened. All off the rack suits need to be tailored to look presentable anyway.
