    Hugo Boss makes a nice suit and the sizes go as high as 54. Most of the better suit brands stop at 48(Armani etc)

    Your first suit should always be a classic. A nice black suit will go very far and you can mix it up with different colour shirt and ties.

    If you're a tall man I like a 3 button jacket, flat front pants....NO PLEATS, they are so ugly. Dont get a leg that is too tapered iether.

    Hugo Boss does make very nice suits, and a good fit for broader men. Personally, the Italian designers are my favorite but I think their suits are better for smaller men, except Armani, those are a good fit for larger guys too.

    I would also try to find a more athletic fitting suit. I know there are a few manufacturers that make them. If you're posting here you probably have a need for a suit with a larger chest and smaller waist. Trying to make a conventional suit look good for an athletic guy often comes out looking poorly. I agree with kitty that pleats look bad, but if you have huge legs I wouldn't worry too much. Better to have pleats that fit than flat-fronted spandex. Mark
