    Jump The Gun: their trousers are really slim, slimmest thighs i've had for a 28. Their shirting is also very, very slim and slimmer than Band. (There are 100% cotton solid button-downs coming at teh end of the year)

    must add that the shirts are cut for those with a muscular chest and shoulders, and narrow hips and collar.

    ^ I heard somet's were slim, probably the most out of those last 3 brands.

    Sounds like you found a couple that work for you though.

    edit: http://www.shopbop.com/shirt-sexy-fi...4441851383.htm uhh is it a girl's shirt http://www.shopbop.com/shirt-relax-f...34374302029428
    Honestly, I thought it was after looking it up online and not finding the mens version but it was in the Mens Section at Macys and it went up to XL, plus I would think they would size down they size XS smaller for women, but then again this thread is somewhat unique. But in the shirts tag, they have 4 boxes (1) Mens, (2) Womens, (3) Sexy Fit and (4) Relax Fit and both "Men" and "Sexy Fit" are checked so I figured it was for mens.

    I'm short but I'm somewhat unfit and have a barrel chest...(5'6", 140, 38" chest, 29-30" waist), so I have to usually opt for a medium to accommodate for my chest size, but then the length is too long. Should I just go M2M?

    I'm in a similar boat. Your best option is probably to take that medium to a tailor and see how much it would cost to get the hem shortened. I've had this done, and it'll probably be cheaper than m2m. However, you can't shorten too much, as the bottom button will cause proportional issues.

    XXS? For reals? Sounds like you should be shopping in the kid/youth section. What other clothing do you wear and what sizes? What are you're stats.
    Well to be fair, epaulet's XS measurements are actually what an S should be
    Is this a shirt thread only? I'm looking for some jean recommendations. APC / 3sixteen / crate all seem to fit well for me. Been wondering about KMW, Somet, and Imperials
    BiG has measurements for Somet, SE has measurements for Imperials, Context has measurements for KMW

    No, they're not. I know this is SF and all, but an 18" pit-to-pit should not be an S, by anyone's standards. Hell, even regular (non-overdye) BoO size S has a 19" pit-to-pit.

    yeah but when you have a 34" chest you dont want the pit to pit measurement of a shirt to be 34 cause that's literally skin tight. I find 35"-36" works good.
