Trim Down for Spring: Five Slim Suits We Love

bonbo-feature, slim suit
The slim suit isn’t new or groundbreaking, but it’s certainly something to explore if you’re bored with a more traditional cut. Re-popularized by the executives of Mad Men, it’s easy to see why more men are choosing to slim down their suit game. And you don’t have to be rail thin to rock this style: a well-tailored, slim-cut suit will make any man look trimmer than the usual boxy design.

Below, we’ve assembled five of our favorites to get you started on your quest for a sleeker spring.

Bonobos –  $550+


The Jetsetter Suit from Bonobos is ideal for the guy who wants a streamlined cut without sacrificing comfort. Built with a blend of wool and stretch, the suit has an athletic fit that looks razor-sharp, but is also incredibly mobile. The Jetsetter comes in several different colors, including light gray, black, charcoal, and bright blue.

J.Crew – $995


Not sure where to start when shopping for a new suit? Not to worry, J.Crew’s personal stylists will help you choose the correct size and fabric, offering advice tailored to your needs. Their Ludlow Suit in Italian cashmere is incredibly luxurious and constructed with a hand-finished collar and Bemberg lining.

Indochino – $399


For under $400 Indochino will create a tailored suit, custom-fit to your own desired slimness. The navy crossweave suit (typically $800) is made from premium merino wool with contrast thread woven throughout, creating a subtle zig-zag pattern when looked at from up-close. When ordering online, simply add your body measurements to their customization tool and you’re all set. Shopping for a slim suit couldn’t be easier.

Kenneth Cole – $375


Known primarily for its shoes, American fashion house Kenneth Cole also makes a fantastic slim-fit suit. The brand’s nested suit is a simple, no fuss option for a guy who wants something classic that won’t break the bank. The attractive garment comes in blacks, grays, and blues.

Suitsupply – $639


Suit Supply is an Amsterdam-based men’s fashion brand that specializes in elegant slim-fit suits. The jacket features a soft, rounded shoulder, which allows the fabric to follow the natural contours of the wearer’s body. Hand-finished detailing and real horn buttons make for a refined, classic finish.
