    I'm trying to buy a sweater online. Here's are my measurements.

    Chest 34
    Waist at belly button 34
    Sleeve 32

    Here's the size chart.

    Chest: Smaller than XS.

    Waist: L

    Sleeve: XS.

    Which should I order?

    I'm not weird looking.. I don't think. I'm 5'10, 140 lbs.. but I do have a small chest and narrow shoulders.

    Buy a different sweater, that isn't going to fit you.
    And remeasure a few times.

    I seem to have this problem with all sizing charts.

    What do other disproportionate men do?

    bump for suggestions on what disproportionate men should do.

    If I bought a medium, could a tailor bring the shoulders closer together? Is that sort of thing expensive?

    Look for a sweater with raglan sleeves (i.e. no shoulder seams).

    Go to a department store and try on a lot of sweaters. You are not likely
    to find a perfect fit online.

    Have grandma or someone else knit you a sweater.

    Tailors don't as a rule work with knits.

    For other shirts, like collared shirts and whatnot.. should i go get those customized? is shortening the shoulder length something that's done in real life? is it exepensive?
