    I feel your pain. I don't understand why it's so freaking hard to buy clothes that fit. I mean, I'm built like the dudes you see in the ads...why don't the clothes fit me?

        LMAO. Because the men in clothing ads are generally half nude anyway....

        I think mens clothes are made to accomodate beer guts. And well, women's clothes seem to be that way too. Buying my husband clothes is a PITA and he is not V shaped, just tall and kind of thin. I can't imagine if you have a slim waist and beefy shoulders. So.... well, do us all a favor and ditch the ill fitting clothes and just wear those kind of snug, spandexy boxers and no shirt or pants and we will all be much happier.

          Somewhere in China are a whole bunch of seamstresses laughing their asses off over the crap they sew for us.

            The only shirts that I've been able to find that can actually be claimed to fit me properly off the rack are from TM Lewin. They have a line which they call "fully fitted" which are great for athletic drops ( i.e. you have a significant difference between your shoulder and waist circumference ). They are not cheap, but they do go on sale periodically, and they shouldn't need tailoring.

            For what it's worth, I always get compliments on them.

              just go to the dry cleaner for alterations. Unless you have priced them and they really are out of budget, this is what we used for DH and it worked out great every time. And I think it cost us $4/shirt for the alteration?

                You could always aim for a bigger waist.
