Was wondering where to ask this question and ended up here, as EG was the trigger point.
Recently I found out I am not a (at least for Japanese brands) size Small guy anymore but more of 'in between sizes.'
Having been a thin framed guy I knew this time would come, but I came to this conclusion when I found myself not wearing summer EG pieces and other Japanese-made stuffs as they felt constricting.
I am short, and have even shorter arm for my height so size S used to be a perfect for many brands that I enjoy.
Had I not known of this brand or its threads, I would have just cut weight or something but now I know the joy and comfort of wearing comfy/loose fitting clothes and wondering if going up to M would work.
So here I am, almost half my wardrobe fitting quite slim- think chambray work shirt fitting like a shirt from Express - yet am not willing to part with them and even worse don't know where to go from here.
Has any of you guys gone through a change in wardrobe sizing, and how did you do it?
As in, do you start again from the scratch, what did you do with the previous articles, is it noticeably weird when a guy wears a S topwear and M bottomwear, etc.
Thanks for your time.
I'm usually in between sizes but have broad shoulders so its tricky for me. If I wanted a perfect fit I would wear small but it would be uncomfortably tight so I usually get Medium even though I know it will be a little looser or tighter in certain areas depending on brand. Sometimes with Japanese brands I get some larges, but I'm ok with it not looking perfect. I won't sacrifice comfort for style. Also knowing that if my body changes and I get bigger it will still fit.
At first when I got into EG I would buy the perfect fit but now I want items to last longer so I either buy Medium or Large, I never go for the perfect or near perfect fit anymore unless its a suit I suppose. With EG and other brands the sizing is not that drastic over each size.
