It sucks shopping online when you are moderately small.
From my experience there are so many variable in choosing your size then just XS or Small. For example type of fabric and quality control of company.

I tend to buy more Uniqlo XS though lately all the stuff I have bought doesn't fit me. Every piece of clothing of theirs fit different, for example an XS button down check oxford fits me flawless but I couldn't even get into an XS polo I bought from them.

Hahah. Well I think I'm just a bit bigger than most of you guys, but Jil Sander shirts in a 36 fit me absolutely perfect. Raf and Raf x stuff is cut very similarly, but construction, country of origin and details obviously will differ. I dunno, I don't mind my Filippa K and Ralph Lauren shirts that don't fit me super slim. Not the nicest shirts in the world but they hold up nicely. Meanwhile, a cuff button fucking rolled off my BOO shirt the other day. Probably my second favorite shirt after my blue Jil dress shirt is an Opening Ceremony micro collar shirt I have. They did an oxford this season in the same cut which came in white pasty green and a patchwork print thing which you've probably seen on many of the big online boutiques, almost snagged one of them too. Fit is nice and slim but not tight, length and taper I think are more appropriate/less ridiculous then BOO. I have a Shades of Greige shirt that I think is more severe than my BOO, but it's a bit much sometimes, quality is also obviously not so hot. Margiela and Dries in a 46 fit me alright, similar to the way Filippa and Ralph do, slim and fitted but not quite as severe as Jil or Band. Prorsum in a 36 and sometimes even 38s can work for me, their sizing can very between pieces though. Lova's small fits me very nicely also, just remembered that I tried on one of their shirts at Odin a couple months ago and almost bought it, cut was something between BOO slim and what you would get from most luxury brands in terms of good fit without the intense slimness. I consider myself a true small though I think my jacket is probably a 36.5-37, I think you guys should be able to do a 44 or XS in most of the stuff I've talked about.

raf xs fits me great (5'8, 34). the collar on boo xs (or small oxfords) is a little big for my shirt size (14 30), but it's close enough. i need some trousers with a high rise to tuck these in, though. was looking forward to mjk's xxs, but i'm not interested in any of his current fabric colors. i have to stop by craft to see if their left field oxfords fit. anybody try those? how about albam?

I own these brands and I am 5'6'' 115lbs (Just started to deadlift and squat, give me some time to build up some mass) My shoulders are 15.5-16", chest is 34 (trying to get to 36), waist is 27-28" (trying to get to 29-30")

Shirts:
Gap xs
Jcrew xs (vintage oxford tailored fit)
Jantzen MTM
H&M sm
Express 1mx sm (altered)

Jcrew is my ownly affordable option (sale/used ~$30) at this moment. However, I like the fit of the shirts and plan to keep buying them even if I do make alot of money after college. Great value imo.

Pants:
Lee 101z
APC Black NS
Gap 1969 Denim (Suprisingly a pretty nice fit on me)
Levis 311 (skinny fit khakis)
Good Society Skinny (trying to sell) New, worn 1 day
Lee 101z womens (trying to sell, never worn, only tried on, didn't realize it was a woman's fit until later)

Jackets:
yesstyle jackets (great fit, poor quality unless its 100% wool)
Herringbone
Khaki cotton/poly blend

Suits:
Mysuitshop.com ($200-$300)
Charchoal
Navy blue
Steel Grey

Suit shop does a pretty good job with tailoring the suits. I feel that I am just too small at the moment to fill out the chest. The shoulders are dead on and length is good. Definitely a good option if you can't afford TaT or can't fit RTW.

I sometimes feel that spending money on clothes makes little difference when girls look at me. I think they just see a scrawny guy. This year I hope I can stack on 15-20lbs.

Suits and oxford shirts I figure when I have the money won't ever be an issue, because of the various MTM and bespoke options available. It's designer clothes that really get to me, all the great designers that don't fit my 'hobbit' frame. I think the best bet is to make friends with a fantastic tailor, but it's a risky business and slightly blasphemous to the designer's intentions, though I have found one tailor that can replicate designer sewing techniques, adjust shoulders and work with leather, so I may put them to the test in the future.

I'm 5'10 145 -150lbs, 34 inch chest, shoulders a hair above 16". Being super lean, I have muscular arms and this usually pose the greatest problem. Labels that fit me well are:
Mr. Olive large
MofM size 2 or 3 depending on fabric type.

I'm a 36 in suits, I also wear a small in the w+h grey coated sim fit hood, having a waist size that ranges from 28-29. Incotex eu44 dress pants fit me perfectly. I've also recently discovered through research that a Boo xsm should fit almost perfectly otr save for the shoulders. So far japanese laels are my best bet for the majority of my clothing, conequently; I am now proxing a few pieces from the far east since Atsui is undergoing restructuring. Btw, can you guys recommend dress shirts that should fit my dimension with minimal tailoring? My neck size is 15 inch and size 15 dress shirts are always too large to fit without looking absurd.

RKD, really? Going by the measurements I would have figured smalls in the hyr x gitman and the epaulet shirts to be slightly too large. Do they fit slim in the arms? I was discouraged that neither brand offers an XS. Are you a 34 jacket size as well?

Also good to hear that RRL xs oxford fit us dudes.

Anyway, I don't have anything to contribute that hasn't already been said. I wear mostly BoO and W+H and am looking to branch out.

Great thread, short/skinny bros

shirt sleeve and pants hem is always too long for me. Instead of taking it to a tailor, I just roll up my sleeve/pants. I pretty much cuff EVERYTHING in the spring/summer. Most xs fits me well. When I buy outerwear, I always look out for short jacket lengths. Cropped jackets work on me best. Patrik ervell makes XS now. His jackets/shirts should fit you better. Also, try NDG, their size are small.
post #27 of 272
Yes, NDG shirting runs small but the sleeves are too constricting for a muscular guy like myself. The difference between me and the majority of slimmer guys here is that I'm very muscular, not short and much of my weight is muscles since my bf is around 3%. So while a lot of the smaller stuff may seem right for me, the arms are usually the deal breaker.

you might want to try jump the gun's shirts. i returned my order because the chest and shoulder were too big, though the collar and bottom hem fit perfectly. if i looked more like jean paul belmondo, they would have fit great.
