Just find something that fits your neck and shoulders and get it tapered for $15-20. What are the chances of finding anything OTR. Either it'll be obscure, expensive, weird, etc. Just buy relatively normal slim shirts that you like and tailor them, that's my op.

+1 It's so much better that way. You get a shirt you like, and it fits once you get it tailored right.

This is weird... Think the only option for that severe of an hourglass would be bespoke. Even MTM wouldn't be able to work unless you got them tailored afterwards. And come to think of it, you (not BTR, just thinking aloud) could probably self-tailor a Julius-esque shirt with some trial-and-error

was thinkin bout that option actually. i wear alot of julius, sz 2 seems to work because it has a fairly tapered waist. just difficult buying shirts because almost everything is super loose from my waist downwards and it looks blousey

that being said. There's a whole school of thought that says tailoring is about getting stuff to fit your body, meaning the clothes are made ideally for you, and another side that says it's about compensating to make your body look more ideal by working around it to fill in the gaps.

While we normally push a "fitted" (ie usually slim) fit around here, with your ratio proportions, you might almost be better off actually keeping it a little looser around the mid-section to intentionally give the effect of being a little fuller. Such a large jump from wide chest to narrow waist to wide hips again may actually be a bit off-putting to some. I'm approaching this entirely academically, so no offense is meant here. I don't know if there's a backstory here or if I even need to know it, just saying extreme tapering, ie fitting YOU, may not actually be in your best interests.

I have an XS jcrew vintage oxford which is a bit tight in the chest, it would fit perfect if i could gain another inch there. after measuring, i could gain 1/2" (better than nothing) by moving the button on the chest over and I'd still have a safe amount of fabric attached so it doesn't pop off. anyone ever done this? any problems, like it looking funny or anything?

I'm probably gonna do it anyway tonight or tomorrow if i've got nothing better to do, but I figured if theres any input to be had I should get some first.

ok i did this last night, and it worked out fine. looks kinda funny when the shirt is hanging on the rack, because one button is just randomly off to the side, but the extra 1/2" helped more than i thought it would. looks normal when i'm wearing it.

I did it to the 3rd button down, because i wear my shirts with the top two buttons undone, and the only downside is that if i button up the second button (the one below the collar) there is kind of a dimple in the fabric, but i never do up that button anyway, so its all good.

MMM 10 button up long sleeve shirt. Size 34 equivalent to XS? Basically looking for a very slim shirt (tuck-able alternative to BoO). Not quite familiar with the sizing. I'm a pretty small guy.

Yes. Seriously, I love both styles. I guess it depends on your attitude and wardrobe. If you're going to be wearing 'em with businesswear, I would go with the chukkas. If you get to wear jeans and such to work, or that's what you care about dressing for, I would go with the indys. But that's just how I would decide. The Chukkas might be a little more versatile, but either way you win, and either would be appropriate for either situation. Don't think I would wear the indys with a suit though.

Anyone know where to pick up a pair of the Timberland Boot Co. Counterpane lace-up boots (black or brown - I like them both)? They are very rarely on eBay, and I'm not too keen on dropping the full retail of $375...

FYI, I'm a size US 8.
