Chariy you need to do a regular post/column in the random fitness thread about dressing. I have 17" shoulders, 41" arse, 24" thigh. Shits hard to dress around.

Doesn't seem too bad of an idea. Could help some guys out. I know it would've helped me out and saved me some time and money trying to figure out what worked for me. I'll sleep on it and think about what I can write on it.

Seems like you have a pretty similar build as I do. Narrow frame, but thick chest/shoulders and a donk.

You really should! I think most of us in the thread dress in the americana drag / business work area. I would def be interested in changing it up a bit and have a few pieces like UU cropped dropped sweatpants that could be utilized better.

damn 26" thigh is ridiculous.  I guess your're like a 33-34 waist most jeans in that size come with 22-24.5 inch thighs.  and i thought I had a hard time sizing jeans. Even own any jeans?

Also I have a 42.5" chest but my shoulders are 21" which makes my body look much more v shaped

This is true. I cannot fit into any tailored stuff whatsoever.
All three of you have it right. I've got a pretty small frame. And really depends on who you ask - some will think I'm very built, some will think I'm tiny. It's all okay with me. I think I'm somewhere in the middle.
But to just list numbers, I'm 5'11" and about 193-194 dry morning weight.
I've got a pretty small frame from the front (only about 18.0" shoulders) and thicker sideways (44" chest). Lower body is where I hold most of my weight (26" thighs), which is why I prefer drop-crotch pants or something of that sort.
Here is a pretty recent picture right before I chopped my hair off again:

Anyways, I feel like dressing for your body type is the most important key in terms of producing a nice fit. That is all. Happy fits everyone!

32" waist which makes my life even harder.

I don't own any "true" jeans anymore. The closest thing I have to jeans are Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair's Favourite Jeans.

I do have a pair of Outlier jeans coming in that may work for me. Might have to get them tapered but I have a good feeling about them.

I have this kinda weird Scotch + Soda hooded bomber thing that's pretty much requisitioned for dog walking that lives in the back of my closet - I always thought it would look kind of cool with rick, but it has this ridiculous gold zipper and hood that prevent me from taking myself seriously when I wear it. I think you could pretty easily do TOJ MA1 with a lot of designer off-mil stuff; raf, rick cloak whatever. That's a pretty nice piece. I don't think it's for me, but I can really see that working for a lot of the minimalist guys (snake et al.)

What brand jeans do you have? I feel like anything that has a drop crotch = expensive. But there is always Yoox I guess

"Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair's Favourite Jeans"

They're the closest thing I have to jeans.

All those random shoe stores have them around town, like David Z and stuff. At least they have the normal (8 eye?) ones in the windows, maybe they have the shoes inside.
