Im a smaller guy so the only clothes that really fit me are XS. Size S is just a tad big but i will buy it and get it taken in but i dont like doing that for everything. Im looking for brands and stores that have/carry XS or measurements fit XS.

I already know of; Topman, American Apparel, Alternative Apparel, Yesstyle, J.Crew, Rakuten, Kooples, Altru Apparel, Dior Homme, Michael J Krell.

Any help is appreciated.

Club Monaco carries XS in a significant portion of their menswear. Their XS dress shirts fit my build (5'5", 150 lbs) very well, though they'd fit better if I lost 10 lbs. I have at least 5 of their shirts.

Depends on what kind of XS you are and your chest measurement.

I just sized a man who thought he was a 34 into a 18 Hickey Freeman His First suit and size 16 Coat.

In fact I have sold size 16 His First to a SF member.

Well I'll tell you that as a lean 34 in. chest I dont think any mall brands are going to help you. J.Crew/Club Monaco/Gap/BR are all going to be too big for you even at XS, unless you're really lenient on how well you want it to fit.

From my personal experiences stuff from Yesstyle/MJK/AA/Band of Outsiders have fit my very well as I am usually an XS in all three (I'm inbetween Medium and Large for a lot of Yesstyle/Rakuten stuff so a medium will probably fit you well).

My only problem with shopping on Rakuten is when i finally do find something that is the right measurements to fit me, its sold out of that size.

It's not easy but doable. It also depends on your budget/location.

I don't have any solid advice for you except that you might want to look into some Asian brands. I think Uniqlo has some pretty small sizes. There are quite a few ebay stores that sell extremely small/slim sizes. I looked at the measurements of this one Japanese pea coat and I wouldn't have been able to fit in even their XL (I'm a 42r).

Good luck!

I'd second the looking into Asian brands. Most American brands (mall or not) will be too large for a 32" chest.

I've come across XS at H&M. I'm a 34 and H&M's small fits me perfectly. However, I don't know if all the lines they carry have XS or if it's just their DIVIDED line.
