    Just about every shirt I buy, whether casual or formal, seems to be too long in the shirt and sleeve length. However these new shirts I've been buying fit perfectly in the shoulder/chest.

    I'm 5'9 but seemingly still too short for shirts in an L size. Though M size shirts are much too tight across the chest and shoulders. I find them really uncomfortable.

    I've tried to take on previous advice to address the shirt length issues. Previously I was wearing formal shirts casually with denim which resulted in a hem of the shirt sitting as low as the crotch.

    Perhaps it's the effect on the photo but this shirt does not actually come down as far as it may seem. There's a good 2 or more inches from the hem of the shirt to the bottom of the crotch.

    I can easily get the sleeves taken up on shirts and it's fine. However I've been hesitant to try and get my casual shirts taken up as it seems to be a much more involved process.

    With the denim, what would you suggest? I would not have thought Ksubi or Acne/APC denim (which is all I own), would be considered cheap denim. Suggestions?

    One thing I am we'll aware of with my denim is that I need to get then hemmed properly. Rolling is making me look shorter than I already am.

    And finally the shoes, well they're a matter of opinion. I appreciate many people don't like them, but I do. I like that they're a chunky shoe and the proportions look good IMO.

    I always thought that the TB shirts were very slim? Also I havent seem many casual offerings - other than the OCBD.

    BOO and Gitman Vintage 'look' to be the right shape from what I can tell - might give them both a go.

    Depends on the shirt. I have a TB cord shirt that is a slim/classic fit (not the description just how it fits me) and have tried on the Oxford with grosgrain placket that was wayyy slimmer in the same size. They are quite long though. Your shirts fit well you could get them shortened at a tailor for cheap.

    Tb is slim but if you get the right size you should be fine. I personallt dislike long sleeve shirts that I cannot tuck in

    Thanks guys. I'll have to go and try them on it seems.

    So far, shirts that seem to fit me well (if a little long in the sleeve/length due to body shape) are;

    Acne
    APC
    Kitsune

    and a local brand, Industrie.

    Still learning/exploring though so ill give TB and some others a go.

    IMO this is quite well done but the scarf looks a little small/wimpy compared to all the other heritage-style stuff.

    if your shirts are too long, get them tailored. it is not involved. or go MTM.

    the problem with your shoes/jeans is the same in every fit -- and ironically it's that the proportions look bad. huge chunky shoes with super narrow jeans with weird big cuffs = bad.

    I know everyone (except some lame troll) loved that outfit but it just doesn't work; very dark leather jacket+dark tee with extremely light blue pants and beige boots is just a crime. Every piece looks good and fits well so it is just a matter of combining them differently but this is a no. I think it can work with a black top and white pants as it is taking it to the extreme and removing the black/beige annoyance.
