    I nee help I'm 5'11"
    14.5 inch neck thats the exact size i would normally go to at least a 15 cuz 14.5 is too tight
    26 inch waist
    36 inch chest
    48 inch shoulder
    32 inseam
    from the base of my neck to my wrist with my and on my waist at a 90 deg angle is 31 inches.
    btw I usually wear my pants low so they fit my small waist.

    I need shirts that won't be baggy on me and am having problems finding cuz of my smallish waist size and broad shoulders(ex gymnast), I got all of my shirts a while back and they were right on the border of being small when i got them, of course I've grown around 3 inches in the past year(I'm 17 btw, and will prob grow another inch or two within a year) and need larger sizes but can't afford it in the abdomen and waist cuz they expect you to have a 32 inch waist for a medium or equivalent sized shirt. My waist has been the same size since i was 10 years old, I would normally wear a kids size but they don't fit me since I stand 5'11". Its a real pain, do you guys know of any companies that will work well for me, or what size shirt i should be wearing. I am looking for some military style shirts(with the two pockets on the breast), and some dress shirts. I rather not have to turn over 15 shirts to the tailor can you help me? I need to find some designers and some sizes that will fit me best any recommendations will be appreciated.


    Thanks,
    Theo

    1) Eat more
    2) Get darts on the back
    3) use an online tailor - nialma.com, jantzen tailor, mytailor.com etc
    4) Eat again!

    You're going to fill out a lot over the next 3 years. I wouldn't stress too much. Just get darts in your shirts.

    think...why do you think i am 48 in the shoulders. I believe i did mention that i used to do gymnastics. I still work out obviously... people need to think

    Eating won't help I already eat like 3 servings per meal and eat 3 meals per day, I just burn it. and when I stop working out, I'm not that hungry enough to eat more then 1 serving per meal.

    ya I may grow an inch or two in the waist, but its are family body type, every one has it... allot of my family members just get their stuff tailored ... I get some of my stuff tailored by Field English Custom in DC, but I can't get everything tailored its just to expensive for me. but the online tailored shirt thing sounds better.

    I STILL WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SOME DESIGNERS HAVE A GOOD SLIM FIT, SO I DON'T HAVE TO GET A MY SHIRT TAILORED THOUGH, I LIKE TO SEE STUFF ON AND FITTED PRETTY WELL B4 I BUY THEM.

    thanks, theo

    Drink a big glass of heavy cream and see what happens.

    I would get shirts made specifically for you. You know your measurements and that is all you need to avoid wasting your time trying to find skinny shirts in stores.

    +1 nialma.com

    I am 37, 30, 36 (chest, waist hips) and have all my shirts tailored.
