Slim fit suits are closer-fitting than their classic counterparts, giving them a sharp, contemporary look. If you have a slender figure and you wish to cut an elegant silhouette, the slim fit suit is for you. At Dobell we have a large range of slim fit suits in a variety of colors and fabrics. If you know what you are looking for, use the ‘refine’ filters to narrow your search down, otherwise browse slim fit suits below.
The slim fit suit is a modern twist on the classic regular fit suit. With the fabric cut back on the shoulders and chest and darts pulling in the waist, the slim fit is designed to closely fit your form. It’s a phenomenon that’s swept the world in recent years: a departure from the wider shoulders and bulkier body of the regular fit that was all the rage in the ‘90s.
This contemporary design affects a number of features: the arm holes are higher to create a trimmer silhouette, the waist is closer (it should pull slightly inwards but not tug) and the pants are tapered for a close-cut feel. If this is your first time wearing a slim fit suit, it might feel pretty snug to begin with but don’t worry – it’s supposed to feel like this and with a few hours of wear you will get used to it.
Here at Dobell you can buy slim fit suits in a range of colors and styles, suitable for formal occasions such as weddings and parties, as well as for business – at work, to job interviews and to business conferences. Lighter colored suits are recommended for summer, such as pale gray and light blue, while black and midnight blue are generally associated with colder temperatures.
When it comes to accessorising your slim fit suit, opt for a slim fit shirt to wear underneath – too much fabric will bulk up what is intended to be a close-fitting look. A skinny tie will round-off this contemporary outfit and give your suit a pop of colour. A handkerchief folded into the breast pocket can also give your look a little more personality.
We stock a range of affordable Alexander Dobell slim fit suits inspired by fashion shows across the globe, as well as a selection of designer brands including Select Homme, Carl Gross, Baumler and Espirit.
