Yeah... that's why I wanna find a good tailor. Hopefully that will help a lot

At age 50, I feel that the best thing is to be comfortable with the body we received and I've reached that stage finally. For me physical fitness & skill in some sport has made a big difference. That and the tailor!

I agree. I feel comfortable with my body but I've really been getting into health stuff recently so I want to be more active and gain some weight.

You will have trouble finding brands, specially the ones that are not overly expensive. When I had a 35 chest and I found it really hard to get fitted clothes. I would try AX, their XS shirts/solid tees might fit, and they have free returns. As far as tops go, it was almost all I used to wear. Quality is quite decent and fit was great just wait for the sales.
Jeans you can try dior homme 17.5cm their thigh measurements for size below 30 are tiny.

Depends on the supplement.

Yeah I've been noticing that I'm definitely going to need to spend more money than the average consumer for my clothes but it'll even out since I haven't been buying clothes often and when I do it's at a thrift store.

Eat a lot of peanut butter. Get all natural, it tastes good and has a lot of calories while still being healthy.

Well then he'll just get fat. Just putting on a bunch of fat won't do any good.

The only thing I can think of Dior Homme and Rick Owens off the rack. You probably should try the MTM route, too, although it will probably look less cool. Either way, it's going to be expensive for you to look perfect, but when it works, you'll look a lot better than most of us here. smile.gif

My ex-boyfriend was 115-120 lbs and 5'10, so similar to your build.

 

He didn't have too much trouble with shirts; extra smalls fit him pretty well (brands like Top Man, American Apparel, Urban. he was not SF-approved). Pants and suits were tough for him though. Size 28 jeans were usually too big on him and men's jeans tend not to run any smaller, so he had more luck with women's jeans most of the time. (Note: most size 28 jeans have a waist that measures 29 or 30.) Suits were also a problem; I think he found one from Top Man that fit. Not very helpful I know... I second suggestion about old DH stuff, but make sure you decide to stick with your build before you start emptying your wallet.

 

I don't get all the unsolicited advice telling OP to gain weight. It would be easier for him to buy clothes if he did, but as long as he is getting nutrients and enough calories so that his body is not eating itself, so what if he is really skinny?

You can get jeans easily that aren't women's they are called student sizes in levi's for example.

Your feedback is helpful thanks. I have tried women's pants and they do fit better but the pockets are tiny and plus... they look like women's pants x.x

Maybe I'll try and gain some weight before I go on a shopping spree so I don't waste a bunch of cash.

Yeah, having a gut and being skinny sucks. My body looks bad.
