    Urban Outfitters, TJ Maxx [don't judge me], Target, Buckle [winter stuff only]. Clothes are clothes. I'm not a brand slut.

    Q: Where would I like to buy my clothes?
    A: The same places you "normal-size" guys can buy them. icon_cry.gif

    Q: Where do I buy my clothes?
    A: Wherever they sell them small enough for me not to look like I raided my father's closet. icon_neutral.gif

    This seems to relegate me to the following three main sources:
    1. those few places that sell XS's (Patagonia is my favorite for the high quality, recyclability, and style);

    2. the boys' department at certain retailers (ah, the ignominy of asking for a dress shirt in my size and being told, "sorry sir, we only go that small in the boys' department");

    3. specialty stores or Asian stores. My current fave is UNIQLO. I discovered the NYC store this past spring and was in heaven. For starters, I'm NOT the smallest size there - they go to XXS! Also, it was filled not only with other small dudes but also seemed to have a very high percentage of "family." It was quite the TRE - I sometimes had trouble concentrating on shopping (never one of my favorite things to do to begin with)! icon_redface.gif

    Do any other smaller guys out there have any suggestions for other retailers that are size-friendly for us? Please share!

    Abercrombie, Nike, Polo = about 80%

    The rest is a mismatch, a lot of it came from the sale rail or was at least half off from when I worked there

    I like Ross for workout clothes, but TJ Maxx has a larger selection of 'normal' clothes.

    Old navy...I still shop like a fat boy apparently. Lately though the only shirts I wear are hanes v-necks (mostly in white, black, or gray) and everyone thinks I get them from American Apparel or Urban Outfitters. I'm like some tragically hip poor person.

    I would LOVE to shop at Express and Banana Republic though >sigh

    TJ Maxx, Finishline, Footlocker, very infrequently I'll go to the Gap to buy stuff to go out in. But most of the time I wear free T-shirts.

    I have recently discovered Winners!

    Hated the idea of searching for 1 or 2 good finds, but once you start going to the same store twice a week, you know what's new icon_razz.gif

    When buying shirts I prefer they have personality in them that's related to me, so I tend to buy t-shirts online. More structured stuff I'll go to places starting from cheap to department to mall shops. Typically Old Navy/Macy's/AE, Gap.

    I will pretty much only buy shorts or jeans from stores like Hollister/Abercrombie. I hate that they need to slap logos on all their apparel. We're paying them to advertise their shit? Fuck that.

    If it's a product I truly stand behind, I'll fork out the cash to essentially be a walking ad. Mostly dorky video game t-shirts. Not only do they get people interested, but I often meet other people who share the same interest.

    EDIT: I should say, I'm not a fan of expensive designer clothing. Pointless. As long I'm dressed and look nice, that's what matters. I have other things I'd rather spend money on. Like gigantic TVs, video games, and penguin plushies. icon_cool.gif

    Gap have extra small for many of their items, and pants that are size 30 in length.

    For tops, European brands like H & M and Zara have sizes small enough for slimmer body.

    If you are a bit muscular, Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostale and American Eagle small size usually works coz they are usually made of stretchable material.

    Depends on the clothes. Jeans usually Levis. Shorts either polo or american eagle. Been loving target's v-neck selection lately. Dress shirts usually from macys or saks. Board shorts pac sun or buckle. Underwear, undershirts, socks, etc I usually get at walmart or target.

    When I'm feeling really flush, Neiman-Marcus, Saks and Bloomingdales locally, Barney's, Saks and Bergdorfs on an NYC getaway.

    My regular mall shopping list includes J. Crew, Banana Republic and Macy's.

    I regularly go to the local outlet mall for bargains - especially Saks and Barney's - though I hate the cheap stuff that's not really first line, that's made just for the outlet stores. It's no bargain. I used to shop Syms really hard - they had great stuff - but now it's just crap.

    For inexpensive trendy/"gay" clothes, Universal Gear - I can still fit in their stuff, but am fast aging out of most of it.
