I just found this threak and was about to comment on that post
I'm Zach. I am 22 and very small I am about 5'6' and weigh about 113 lbs. My body doesn't process protein properly and my metobolism is through the roof. I have an incredibly hard time shopping. I am very fashion concious and like to look good. I like my clothing to be form fitting.
Jeans are an absolute nightmare. I have found that basically the only jeans that fit me are levi 511 skinny. (but fit more like a straight leg than a skinny.) Pretty much the only store I can buy shirts from is American Apparel. I like their stuff but one can only have so many solid color shirts. When I was in NYC this past summer I also stumbled upon Topman on accident and bought 2 dress shirts that fit me well being XS.
I taught myself to roughly take in tee shirts with my sewing machine. Whenever target has shirts for 2.99 or 3.99 I buy a few and sew them in. While they don't fit totally to my liking they are a heck of a lot better.
I am growing more and more unhappy. I am lacking a lot of confidence with myself. I want to start feeling better. I have tried gaining weight and it just doesn't work. I have 3 protein shakes a day at about 65g each and have not put on a single pound.
Anyway. What are some online stores that I can seek out? I am ready to just go on a shopping spree. I have been searching around and found yesstyle.com but am utterly confused about the sizing. Would their M be more like an US XS?
Man I'm telling you again, go here for real advice on sizing, which brands fit better, where to find them, etc. Keep hanging around here and the best advice you'll get is for people to tell you to shop the boys section of BB
You will do good to look for higher end clothing, as it's more tailored for slim people, many mall brands are notorious for tailoring for the average regular to slightly chubby male. Find yourself a good tailor too and your length issues will be solved (though ideally tailoring should be kept to a minimum).
Japanese brands are also loaded with small sizes because of them generally being smaller. Maybe when you are more experienced with fit, if you arm yourself with a measuring tape and a good proxy such as Hedi San from SharpService (google) and peruse the Yahoo! Auctions Japan website, you can find a lot of great stuf that will fit you.
I am smaller than you and pretty much have to rely on a tailor and being super careful with my clothing purchases, but even at my height and weight (5'2", 110 pounds), I still somehow manage, so I'm sure you won't have any issue.
Good luck and welcome to StyleForum .
Now that I think of it, 5'2 110lb is kind of chunky...
tight fittin mall brands: h&m, express, uniqlo
if you want other brands -- generally for nicer clothing -- to fit well, befriend a tailor. i have to take certain items to get altered too (picked up 3 shirts today) and i'm 5'10 fluctuating between 150-155lb raw depending on when i last shat.
