    I'm a 46 jacket (borderline regular or long, depending on the make), 34-34 pants, 16 1/2 collar and 36/37 sleeve, shoe size 11-12(again depending on the make). Â Yeah so it can be a pain trying to find stuff that fits just right.
    I've been inteseted in getting a nice gray fedora or snap brim lately but haven't had much luck. Â How about sharing your source with all of us?

    It looks like you've maintained your weight, but not your user name, in the intervening eight plus years.

    36S, 29x29 (which usually means 30x30, which fits better in some cases than others), 14.5/32. Small in letter sized shirts, or really anything. Shoe size 7 US, sock size 10, Hat size 7.

    You large guys think shopping is a pain? They make stores that cater to you folks. Even though there are just as many guys under 5'7" as there are over 6'3" (or something like that), you get stores and we get manufacturers that make smalls that fit like tents (I've measured some that would be Larges by sane sizing), and many don't even bother to make that size. It can be a challenge to find anything with a waist of 30- though for some reason, it's not as hard as finding smalls. But I've even seen places that don't bother stocking below a 34 (Macys, looking for shorts- I don't shop there much).

    And don't get me started on shoes. That's actually one thing I've been very happy about since starting to wear nicer shoes- brands actually bother with my size. It's refreshing.

    Belt hunting is the worst though. Nobody- and the 'helpful' associates suggest that I buy a size 32, where I can use the smallest notch, right? Except that that notch is around 31 (because even belts have to be farking vanity sized), I often need to go down to a 29, and I would want to be using the center hole anyway.

    The biggest problem I had stylewise before coming into the fold was size. I wore medium as the path of least resistance, and looked like crap. I still get shirts as gifts in a size above my normal one because "it was the smallest one they had, and a 15 is close enough, right?" Those get returned, and I have to use the refund to buy from a different store...

    Shopping in most of this country is tailored to the standard American fatass.

    Get belts that can be altered. Belts shouldn't be a problem.

    The average American now has a 40 inch waist so

    Italian 50 jacket 42 jeans.
