I'm 5 ft 6 and slim, and I can never seem to find clothes that fit me properly, even in small sizes. Everything winds up being too big on me, particularly shirts; the sleeves on short-sleeve shirts (whether polo, t-shirt, or button-down) go almost to my elbows instead of ending around my biceps or triceps, and when the shirts are untucked, they go halfway down my thighs. As for long-sleeve button-downs, the cuffs inevitably slip down past my wrists.
It's very frustrating.
Where can I buy clothes that will fit me properly -- for example (but not exclusively), short-sleeve buttons downs that look like these
? I just ordered a few of those in small, which is the smallest size they have, and it turns out they're too big for me.
But not just those types of shirts. Anything, really.
If it helps, I'm in my late 30s, and I'm also gay -- which is only relevant because gay guys tend to dress a little more trimly than straight guys. But I don't need "fabulous" or flashy clothes or skinny jeans; I just want nice, neat clothes that fit me trimly, something smart and casual that I could maybe also wear to work. And I live in New York City, so it doesn't necessarily have to be from an online store.
Oh -- and I'd rather not shop in the kids' department.
