Tall & Slim Men's Suits ???

Does anyone know a good source for Tall & Slim suits for young men?

DS1 is nearly 6', weights maybe 130# - if you put some extra weight on the scale. He is a 36 regular, but 34/35 sleeve, 14" neck, 29x31 pant. Altering in length is doable, IF one can find the 29 pant in a 32" length.

JCPenney's has a suit coat, but not the slacks (backordered indefinitely.) Our local store checked several districts in upper midwest. Online: Younkers, Macy's, Bloomingdales don't appear to carry a 29 waist pant, smallest is 30. Men's Wearhouse is too pricey, Megasuits only sells a 2 piece set with a min. 30" waist.

Would happily consider a blazer & slacks, but, well, he & I both need Garanimals for good fashion sense.

Good luck.
DH is 6', 140 soaking wet. 28 inch waist.
We walked into the suit store and told the lady we were having a hard time finding suits cause he was so skinny. She looked at us and said, "oh, I am sure we can find something."
Then she measured him. I will never forget the look on her face. She turned to me, agast, and said, "I don't think they make them that small."

We ended up getting a jacket one size bigger, and getting the pants altered.

His goal this summer is to gain 20 pounds. I told him I could donate.
Never had to buy him a suit (cowboys don't wear suits!) but I can sympathize.
DH is 6'3", 165# fully clothed. He wears a 30x40 pants.
Given how easy it is to find 40x30s, it would seem short, fat men are far more common than tall, skinny ones. lol
I can't recommend a source because I've never bought my sons new suits. Always went to the consignment store, found one with a coat that fit and pants that were long enough, then altered the size of the waist. Pants aren't that difficult to alter if you know how to sew.

Good luck!
