    I just got a J. Crew jacket back after about three trips to the tailor. It's a three-button Ludlow that I think looks pretty damn good on me ... that is, once I chopped an inch off the bottom and about half an inch off the sleeves.

    I'm of pretty average height - a little over 5'9". And if I weren't so skinny, I'd be covered - J.Crew stocks both 38S and 40S. So why is it that us skinny guys are stuck having to do major surgery on a jacket when those with just a bit broader shoulders are covered?

    I suspect I'm not alone. Anybody else have this problem with J.Crew's sizing? Or know of a way to elongate your torso by about an inch? Let me know.

    Surely that is possible.

    Because companies cut costs by cutting down on sizes they have to stock, and they always screw over the slim guys these days becuase america is a nation of lardasses.

    Is this a complaint that you can't find 36S jackets? B/c there are clothing brands outside of Jcrew.

    And why are you even wearing a short when you're 5 9+? Add to that Ludlow's are already cut a bit shorter than most jackets.

    It's only the most popular "fashion" mall brand in America! A wise man named Xeno once taught me that one should feel gratitude that one's non-mainstream tastes are even tolerated around here.

    They also taste better though once in a while I likes a little fat in my diet.

    short/skinny people get screwed over by mall brand sizing, this is nothing new.

    I like J.Crew but I'm tired of having to get the XS shirts tailored every time.

    J.Crew has had 36S for some time now. I personally haven't seen them in the stores but I know they're available online.
