The Official thread for short / slim people.

List of Brands for Short/Skinny People

Band of Outsiders XS shirts p2p 17.5"-18, S shirts p2p 18"-18.5 size 0 outerwear/jackets equivalent to a 34.

RRL: http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/1854/picture3u.jpg
those are oxfords.

Uniqlo: I'd say their size XS is a bit roomier than band S for button-downs. Their knits (cardigans, v-necks) are slimmer, p2p of about 18" but boxy.

Michael J Krell: There's a whole thread on this!

Epaulet:
The same. 18" p2p for XS and 19" for S.

Wings and Horns: you have to look up specific pieces but I heard their S fits people that wear XS in BoO this season.

Topman: Their XS shirts are 17" to 17.5", so I take their S here,. I usually take a S in their outwear aswell. (coats , etc.) Grab their stuff on sale

Jump The Gun: their trousers are really slim, slimmest thighs i've had for a 28. Their shirting is also very, very slim and slimmer than Band. (There are 100% cotton solid button-downs coming out at the end of the year. Their current solids feel crappy besides the Ginghams / Checks)

SNS: Their online store has knits in XXS and XS. Prices are about 300 euros.


Wolf vs. Goat
: Mauro's line, great stuff coming (pants and outwear) XXS and XS.

Shipley & Halmos: Their XS shirts are a bit smaller than Band S. Suit jacket has 17.5" p2p according to context.

Japanese brands: Man of Moods (size 2 or 3) and Mr. Olive (Medium or Large. Medium is equivalent to an XS in our designer brands)

ahah I hope I don't have to resort to looking up obscure japanese/korean brands. that would be a ton of work! i'm 5'6, 34 jacket. i have some basics from uniqlo and while I appreciate those I don't want everything from there. Will have to check out hyden yoo for those that know does ervell , our legacy (they make XS from what i see on tresbien, this might become my new favourite) , js, etc. make sizes that fit me?

I think only js stores carry them that's why.

yeah im 5'7 and run into the same problem. i really HATE the fit of jcrew xs and kind of feel like im inbetwen somewhere.

being skinny and korean makes it a bit difficult. H&M fits decent but quality is poo ... the hyr vs gitman oxfords were amazing. i do want to give a shoutout to Epualets line. Small fits PERFECTLY and although i only got the two Epualet x SF shirts, i am buying all three flannel colors as well

ive never actually purchased/tried on a BoO shirt because prior to moving to DC I had no access and didnt want to pay such a lofty price at the time.

i can only hope farinellis WvG can help us out as well...

I wear an MJK XS which has 15.25" shoulders and 17" p2p, I really can't wear anything bigger than this and could even go to 15" shoulders, unfortunately shirts this small are very rare, so I can sympathize. I recently found out about Agnes B. and they appear to make some fairly unisex womens shirts (though the buttoning is back to front which might bother you) which I will try out when I have some cash, not the nicest shirts though, basically simple casual stuff. Uncontrol was talking before about japanese brands that you can proxy, I've looked at this a bit and unfortunately a lot of designer pieces are very expensive on rakuten, for example a silk Ann D scarf that I got for $150 AU at 50% here costs $700 AU on Rakuten not including proxy charges, double the cost of retail. G-Star Raw's small is stupidly small and fits me nicely, 15" shoulders and 34-35" pit to pit, pity I hate all their clothes and only ended up buying a shirt and sweater about a year ago out of desperation for something that fit me. If designers made real size 44's with 34" p2p or therebouts with similar shoulders (15 - 15.5") there would be no problem.

I'm looking forward to WvG aswell, sounds like he's making high quality coats, pants, knits, etc. BoO is same as gitman on sale.

the wings + horns sounds great ... fingers crossed as i got the two-tone tiger fleece and the black henley thermal with contrast elbows

but im having problems with the military thermal from apolis in small and even kind of the apolis small t shirt. they are a bit more relaxed than id like (long in sleeve and long in length). im hoping a quick wash and dry will do the trick. its weird because i have the apolis nomad hoodie from spring (same as this fall) and the apolis x sf x context in small and they are fine. maybe this season they went more relaxed than normal?

your MJK xs is out of the norm, but yes his shirts are awesome

Agreed on proxy'ing. Crazy expensive and not worth the effort imo.

i like MJK and want to support his work but i HATE the fact that its so not uniform. his shirts vary from each design and pattern and there seems to be no consistency. i want to buy a shirt and continue to getting shirts from that person regardless. i dont want to have to check measurements constantly. but i love his stuff and own all the underwear but just cant pull trigger on shirts.

thats why i love epualet... consistency in shirts goes a long way imo

as for proxying yeah its really annoying because of added time for delivery, cost for proxy service, and headaches trying to figure out sizing, returns, fit pics, availablity, let alone reading the foriegn language, etc.

g-stars aesthetic is terrible ... i actually used to like it a while back but they changed so much. it just got ginormous way to fast and became TOO hip around europe, asia (especially korea), and now wannabes in major us cities.

Muji fits well, small at least. Sometimes their stuff fits like a tent though. Boutique stuff in Korea is pretty easy for me except chest never fits. I get almost all of my stuff at Uniqlo or bespoke though and I think everyone knows that.
