    Really though, all joking aside, you are about 10 lbs away from a "dangerously underweight" classification. You are already medically underweight according to most BMI scales.

    There's a reason why it's hard to find clothes to fit you. Put on 15 lbs and then make another thread. I'm not trying to be mean. I'm genuinely worried about your health.

    Again, I am 5'7 and I weigh 135. People sometimes make fun of how skinny I am. I can't image what that means for you.

    Can you eat supplements? Im not sure if most will intervene with your vegan diet.

    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.

    It's great that everyone is so concerned about OP's weight but he could also be completely fine. I am 6'6" and 160lbs which is exactly the same BMI as OP. I am in excellent health, work out almost every day, (2,000 meter swim 4x per week + gym 3x per week) and eat as much as I want. It's just that have a fast metabolism and not much body fat. I'm sure 100 years ago there would be a ton of people OP's size that were perfectly healthy and no one would be concerned - we've just all got a lot bigger!

    The problem is, because you're so skinny, any clothing you can find that fits you will likely only emphasis how thin you are. I'm half an inch taller than you, but weigh 150. Even then, my arms and legs are rather thin (all my weight goes to my belly).

    Dr. Huh ... I don't know if I ever ran across someone skinnier than me!

    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 know, I know and I understand everyone's concern. Like I said I'm trying to gain weight (even more so since making this thread lol) and that's all I can do right now. People don't make fun of me but even if they did I wouldn't care.

    Ok, a lot of people have been recommending them, so I'm hoping I can find some clothes there. Also I've been really interested in just getting all my clothes tailored and buying cheaper clothes.

    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.

    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. :)

    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.
