Hey guys, long time lurker first (second) time poster. I like to think I have a decent sense of style when compared to most people out in the real world but you guys make me feel like an absolute child.
Anyway, I'm in the market for a navy sport coat that I can wear with chinos (khaki or faded red) and a button down, no tie. Also need some nice brown dress shoes to go with it.
My issue is my measurements. I lift a lot so literally nothing fits me OTR. I just have to look for something that's relatively close and get it altered.
Measurements are 5'11" & 55.5" around the shoulders and 33" at the waist. I have long arms as well, I wear a 35/36 sleeve when I'm buying dress shirts.
As you can imagine it's hard (read: impossible) to find something that fits my shoulders but also fits even remotely close in the waist. I try to find modern/slim fit jackets but I end up having to buy a 46 or 48 for the shoulders and they still make me look fat at the waistline even though I'm pretty lean, and even after I get them taken in.
Would really appreciate some ideas as far as sport coats/blazers to look at. Brown dress shoes as well. 'preciate it!
