Rated 5 out of 5 by Garadice A New Favorite
The Regent has been my favorite fit for a few years now. As I have a slim build, the Regent gives a more fitted look, compared to the Madison fit. Hearing that the Fitzgerald is even more fitted than the Regent I decided to give a navy stripe suit a try. As soon as I put it on in the store I could feel the difference. The pants are a lot more trim with a lower rise. Even though the pants with the suit are my size, I had the tailor let them out a half inch to make them a little more comfortable. The jacket is tapered in the waist and the sleeves are also trimmer. All in all, it combines a modern trim fit with classic styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by woothok Great cut, great fit. Coat fit me perfectly straight off the rack - not something that's necesssary, I guess, but it's an indication that this cut was exactly what I was looking for. IMHO, this cut works great for someone in shape (I have 38" chest, 32" waist, so I guess that's the perfect drop for this cut), but does not want a fitted / European look. It's a classic suit. I will be buying more.

I expect the suit to be fitted properly and look good. I was extremely pleased with the professionalism of my salesperson, Sally. She went the extra mile to find what I wanted, was not pushy and would not sell me a suit just because it is her job. More sales professionals should take the lead from her. She will be my representative in all my Brooks Brothers purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArsenalFC21 After wanting this suit for years I finally sucked it up and paid for one, and honestly, I couldn't be more happy with it! The cut of the suit is reminiscent to that early '60s look but remains very modern at the same time. Everything in the description, the lapels, the low rise in the trousers are nice touches. My only criticism however would be that the drop being 6 inches doesn't seem big enough for thinner guys, who I assume would favor the fit. Having a drop of 7 inches would be good in my opinion. Kind of like the Regent suits. Also, I am almost certain that my Regent fit gabardines are slimmer than the Fitzgerald's pants. But above all, this suit is awesome! It will remain a staple in my wardrobe forever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SFTallBoy Great Suit - Nice Updated Fit
I purchased the Fitzgerald in a grey pinstripe. The fabric is beautiful as usual.
The fit is really nice for Brooks Brothers. It's updated with higher armholes, narrower lapels, trimmer sleeves and pants. It's generally a more tailored look but still not constricting or uncomfortable. Very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ddll perfect fit and finish
Fortunately the suit fits perfectly without alteration. I just order the right trouser length and it is good to go upon arrival. The suit is trim, the fabric is high quality and quite comfortable. The best suit and easiest fit I have ever had.

This is my first BB suit and will stick with them. The material is soft and the fit is great. As a tall slim guy, the narrower lapels, slimmer fit really helps in looking great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JB727 Lasted less than a year
I bought two of these suits at the same time. I wore each of them once a week to the office and in less than a year the fabric had worn just below the elbows. I was told by my local store that they would have to be taken to be rewoven.

Rated 3 out of 5 by user27 Stitching came loose
great material and sharp looking suit, feels and looks terrific. However, stitching in the shoulders (both sides) was loose (arm was actually pulled an inch apart from back) before I every wore the suit, not what I would expect from a brooks brothers. I had a similar problem with a less expensive Brooks suit, to get the stitching fixed was not really expensive, but it was an inconvenience and not what I expected from Brooks Brothers.

Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect fit and style
This is the suit that brought me back to Brooks Brothers. The narrow lapels, luxorious fabrics and drape, and especially the high armholes give this suit an impressive silhouette. You feel like a superhero when you put this suit on.
The pricing encourages you to buy two. I hope their shirts get more tailored to compliment this look and some sixties influenced elegant ties.

I have an athletic build and it is very difficult to find a suit that iis tailored towards my physique. I have had great luck with the fitzgerald cut and now that is the only cut I will wear.

I'm 5'11 and 150 lbs, and the slimmer fit of this suit is great. Good quality for the price, especially if you get it at a significant discount (it pays to be patient). I'm interested in trying out the new 1818 interest (the Milano), but this is a fine fit for a slimmer gentleman who is looking to toe the line between fashionable and conservative.
I own this suit in both a navy pinstripe and charcoal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxi Phenomenal suit
I have a very difficult time finding suits. I have wide shoulders and a very narrow waist. Typically I try to find something in an athletic cut. However, this suit is exceptional. It has a modern, youthful, slimmer fit. Together with incredible tailoring from the on-site tailors, this is one of the best suits I have ever owned. And, as always, Brooks Brothers service cannot be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by joect Looks great but need more time to evaluate
I am 5'6" 130 lb and wear a 38 Short. I ordered two Ftizgeralds in this size and they look great. As with most men I assume, I needed my tailor to make a few minor adjustments. I just got these suits, so I need more wear time to evaluate quality over a longer duration. So far these are as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jamesj1k great suit/fit
I dont wear suits often but this one is a great fit/quality. I only wish that the pant was a slimmer cut but its ok. The jacket looks spectacular. I have the navy stripe.
Im 6ft 3.5inches and 220 lbs. The 44L was a great fit.
My next suit will definitely be from BrooksBrothers

Rated 5 out of 5 by iworkhereNget50percentoff EXCELLENT SUIT, WORTH EVERY PENNY!
If you're looking to replenish your wardrobe, this is the perfect suit to get, works well with most athletic body types, goes well with nearly every shirt and tie combination, not to mention the narrow lapels accentuate your figure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Owen2010 I keep buying these...
I bought two suits to give them a go. I enjoyed them enough to keep buying them. Thus far I have several black, navy, and grey suits. I would love other options in this cut, which fits a slim build like myself very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarriedInterest Pant Belt Loop
The only issue with this suit is that the front belt loops on the pants are placed too close to the center such that I cannot center the leading edge of my average size belt loop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JeffC cut is great for slim, athletic build such as myself. My only gripe is that the the sleeves are much tighter than other cuts.
