Boring I know, but : Anyone good with suits ?

My adored and hard working Next suit is finally biting the dust (I have a number of others, but this has been a real staple), and I want to replace it. But am failing...

What I love about it:
Plain black, non creasing
Has interesting hook and eye fastening which makes it a v slim line
Long enough to cover waist and hips in the jacket
Matching trousers and skirt (I travel a lot so this makes life much easier)

Any ideas ? I am 5'10, size 12-14, a 32" leg (so need long length trousers)

I'm happy to spend more, have to dry clean it, but really want something without a boring button front, and with at least two matching pieces to the jacket. Even not black isn't a deal breaker, but needs to be conservative

Have you tried Episode?
I bought a great suit from there about 6 years ago that is still like new.

Zara have lovely long trous and are usually pretty slim as well as being good for interesting / fashionable detailing

dept stores with lots of concessions are worth a look - at lots you can (for free) book a personal shopping appt.
If you're lucky they will take your measurements & requirements in advance so they have a rack of suitable (aha good pun) stuff waiting when you turn up.

Episode don't have anything. Reiss don't have anything I like, or long length trousers.

Will go and have a look in Zara as their website makes my eyes hurt smile

I will book a personal shopper appt at JL - I need to try some stuff on in there anyway
