5' 6" here, 5' 7" if you count my hair, and 5' 8" if wearing shoes. (I'm 67 inches or 170 cm.)
I'm slim but have broad shoulders, so either a 36 or 38 usually fits me perfectly in length, in the shoulders and sleeves, but for some reason, there isn't quite enough front for the chest. I made do for years by never buttoning up my suit jacket (which I now know is a cardinal sin). Today I go MTM.
As for shirts, I'm a perfect 15-33 but I find most shirts billowy. It's as if most brands expect me to have a large gut. Darting helps, but since most slim fit shirts are still too big for me, I've gone MTM as well. Might try bespoke next just to see the difference.
I've gone MTM for odd trousers too because most slim fits are too roomy in the thigh. However, my calves are fat. (I have a 30" waist and 15" calves.) I also have a flat back (shoulder blades not prominent), and I find trousers with a fuller cut make my legs look too thick relative to my torso. My slim MTM trousers give me trouble, however, because they cling to my OTC socks. I'm solving that problem by having them fully lined. Might try using heavier fabric next.
Not sure what brand of high-end jeans has slim thighs but roomy calves, though. Haven't figured that out yet.
My normal shoe size is US 8E. I have broad feet but narrow heels, however, so finding a pair of dress shoes that fit has been hard. The best fit I have is a pair of EGs in 202 last. I figured that if I had to spend this kind of money to get a good fit, then I might as well go bespoke. Hence this thread
I guess my fit problems have nothing to do with my height.
EDIT: On a more serious note, if I couldn't afford MTM, then suits would become a problem because I had never encountered an OTR suit that could be tailored to fit me correctly. I also found that as we entered the 21st Century, it became harder and harder to find cheap dress shirts my size in stores, at least where I live (Ottawa, Canada). I'd have to go to more upscale stores (assuming I could afford to) or shop online. There are also no cheap but good dress shoes. Shopping in Canada is rather lacking overall.
