So I'm a pretty small guy, and I was shopping in the US this weekend. Since my waist size is 28-29, it was very difficult to find much that fit in the men's clothing section. I was at a Ralph Lauren display when someone suggested I might want to look into the boys section to find stuff my size, since I was shopping for casual clothing anyway. Lo and behold, I found some of great stuff at much lower prices... at the largest boys size...

Do any of you smaller guys have any other brands in mind that do this? And by this, I mean, "boys clothing" that would certainly pass as clothing for adults..

The thought has crossed my mind, I suppose you'd probably save a lot and get decent selection.
Otherwise there's always Thom Brown!

Still, I'm surprised you had trouble finding stuff in 28-29 waist. Maybe you're just going to the wrong sort of stores.

All my polos are in boys large for both ralph lauren and brooks brothers. Much better prices.
