My issue is the typical broad shoulders and narrow waist, which is common with gymnast and body builders. A lot of standard fitting shirts I own (Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers) are generous in the mid section, which makes me look like as if am wearing a cape from the chest down when the shirt is not tucked in my trousers.
Something relatively easy to conceal wearing suits, however very revealing when sporting jeans.
