Qweary: Skinny Suits for Petites?

Qweary: Skinny Suits for Petites?

Anonymous asked: "Hi, as a petite (I am 5’4” with 110-115 lbs) female with androgynous style, I’m having a hard time finding a suit that would fit me perfectly.

"I crave skinny crisp look rather than baggy look. I was thinking maybe I could get a three-piece suit set from topman and get it altered/tailored to fit me better, but I’m still not sure and I’m running out of time! Do you have any recommendations or any tips?"

The Topman option is always excellent. Depending on the suit you get you may not need to have it tailored, but tailoring will of course always enhance the look of any suit. I love the fit of Topman vests. I have also had great luck with H&M suits. They are reasonably priced, slim, short enough in the jacket, and go down to small enough sizes to fit my shoulders (I am a size 34 in jackets). I do have to hem the pants, but once hemmed they fit wonderfully. The sleeves also need to be taken in sometimes, but that is easy work for most tailors, and for your height possibly not necessary. I am also generally fond of the look of J. Crew suiting, though I have never worn it myself, and their sizes tend to run slim and small enough to fit more petite people.

If you are looking for more of a staple option for work or something of that sort, and have more money to spend on something higher quality, there are a plethora of new *menswear suiting options available, such as Kipper ClothiersTomboy Tailors, and Saint Harridan. A custom or tailored suit will always look better on you than one off the rack, and even Saint Harridan’s OTR suiting will be more likely to fit better on FAAB, trans*, and genderqueer bodies. Indochino is a great custom menswear clothier, friendly to queers and reviewed by Sonny in this post. A good tailor will also be able to alter a classic menswear suit from places like Bachrach or Jos. A. Bank, though tailoring has been definitely necessary for me in regard to those sorts of suits. I have, however, experienced excellent customer service from both places, surprisingly enough.  

Good luck!  Send us a submission when you’re suited up — we’d love to see what you come up with!
