Wardrobe upgrade advice for a slight man
February 28, 2010 9:02 AM Subscribe
I'd like to upgrade my wardrobe but there's a twist: I'm so slight that my sweaters, t-shirts, and jeans billow off of me, and I end up having to buy nicer clothes from the boy's section. (I'm a "Husky Size 8" in the boy's department last time I checked)

I've recently switched jobs from developer to a designer at a fancy design firm. As such, I'll be presenting my design ideas to clients that aren't going to be a huge fan of my current "whatever jeans + shirt that has to do with programming" approach towards dressing.
I've been getting lots of great tips for general wardrobe advice (ask.mefi has a ton of info too, thanks!) but I'm curious about advice for shopping for super slight men who want to look fashionable. I assume a bunch of tailoring is in my future.
Background details if it matters:
5 foot 9
29 inch hips
Super long torso
Like the idea of well-fit shirts that aren't tucked in
Any general advice for how you have, or how you would, deck out that sort of slight build would be much appreciated. Thanks!
