I shop almost nowhere locally, because no places carry fitted clothing. It's uncommon to find a 38 in suit sizes, rare to find a 36, and 34 simply doesn't exist. I walk into Nordstroms and I'll find an overwhelming number of L and XL, but barely a small, let alone an XS which most companies don't even bother making. I don't understand this hate against smaller and slimmer sizes. There is ALWAYS the options to size up. Every brand has an XL size, but few have an XS (and if they do it's more of a glorified S). If XL is still too small, most brands still offer an XXL. Does an XXS for men exist? I could probably name maybe a handful of brands that do this and none of them are locally available. There are many, many, many options to choose for full cuts. Shops such as Brooks Brother, the normal RL shirts, JPress, all their cuts are extremely full. I find "slim" versions of clothing items a good step in the right direction, but they really are are just slim on normal people and not actually mean for people on the slimmer side. For me, there is no option to size down, unless I want to start shopping in the boys department which just means awkward boxy cuts. For me, virtually no options exist for items such as sweaters and shirts, at least nothing remotely affordable. You could walk into any Nordstroms, JCPenny, Sears, Gap, BR, Saks, and find full cuts in almost every item. *Note: This excludes tee shirts and jeans in which almost anyone can find something their size in them.
