    I'm about 5'3 and its hard to find shirt, T-shirts and jackets that fit me properly. Apart from maybe a few T-shirts I think everything I have is probably at least a little to big for me. I may, however, get overly paranoid about this, especially with shirts and jackets as I find it hard to tell if something fits me properly. But I think most xs things are at least a little too big for me. I'm a beginner at dressing well so I really don't know where to look. It's often hard just to find any xs sizes. Are there any Australian stores anyone would recommend? Or online? I've looked online before but I didn't manage to find much.

    edit: Just in case I'm not clear, when I say things don't fit me I mean they are too long at the waist or arms. I don't know my waist size but I don't usually have a problem finding things that fit my width, at least in comparison.

    If xs in mens sizes is too big for you, you might want to consider boys sizes.

    I'm also 5'3" and I also sometimes rock boys clothes. How much do you weigh?

    Advice: Brooks Brothers boys, Polo boys, Gap kids anywhere from size 14-18, depending.

    For non-boys stuff? APC (Petit Standard) and Somet (003) jeans, Sterlingwear Peacoats (smallest sizes in the 4 button "fashion" variety), Barbour Bedale (size 30-34 depending). Thick as Thieves for suits (or else totally custom).

    I don't really know the Aussie market in particular though.

    Thanks for the suggestions Spaghettimatt, I'll see what I can find here. I'm about 60kg btw.

    No problem. 60kg (130ish lb) is pretty close to me (125 give or take). I think you'll find that finding t-shirts is easy in boys' sizes. Button downs can be a bit trickier depending on the brand, but I've had lots of luck with Polo. You could also go the made to measure and/or custom made route on the button downs. Keep me updated and feel free to PM me with any questions.
