Good yoga clothes for men?

Where can I find good yoga clothes for men? Mid-length pants and shirts that don't fall all over the place. My old Lululemon stuff was well-designed and held up wonderfully, but they don't seem to make any purpose-designed yoga clothes for men anymore. [more inside]

Cover me!

I'm trying to build a small wardrobe of versatile, well made, neutral basics(who isn't?), with a twist. I have work clothes provided by my employer, so I only need happy fun time clothes. I have nice plain T's. I need some shirts that are a step up but not button downs; I have to wear them at work and hate them. I'm a woman, mid-forties, 5'3", pear shaped, size 4/6/8 depending on the brand. I have a small waist and enjoy emphasizing it in a fully covered, non-binding way. My budget is about $100 a piece. Suggestions?

This isn't one of the "figure flaws" they list in magazines.

I'm just under 5'5". Unusually (I think?) for someone of average height, I have long legs *and* a long-ish waist. This is possible because the distance between my shoulders and under-arms is, apparently, according to the shirts of the world, unusually short. [more inside]

Men's fitted shirts similar to Macy's INC?

Looking for fitted shirts similar to INC from Macy's, which is the only brand I've found shirts from that I've really liked. I work in a semi-casual workplace (no jeans/shorts, but untucked button-up shirts are fine), and I like shirts that I'll also wear on my days off. I'm pretty thin, so I need shirts that don't balloon out at the waist, and I tend to like relatively simple designs (plain colors/stripes, with a preference for monochrome). Preferably, the shirts would hold up well without ironing, since I only have a hand-steamer. What brands other than INC should I check out? (I'm in Southern California, so please stick to brands that would be available for trying on around here.)

longsleeve shirts for thinner taller guys

I'm a mid-twenties, relatively-tall, relatively-fit (6' 1", 180 lbs...but I run a lot) guy who has a shirt problem. During the colder months I really like wearing long-sleeve cotton shirts as a sort of base layer under other things. My problem? I can't find any brand that fits...either the arms are too short, or the shirt maker seems to presume that I'm going to have a beer belly to go along with my longer than average arms. I.e., what I'm looking for is something like the small size of this, but with longer arms. I realize I could get larger shirts tailored down or go the bespoken route, but both of those options seem kind of overkill for what should really be a pretty standard product. Are there any brands that serve guys in my size by default? [more inside]

Help me find extra tall, well-fitting shirts, jackets, and sweaters for a thin man, because I can't seem to find these anywhere myself.

I'm 6'9" and 210 lbs. "Tall" sizes of clothes are designed to fit guys up to 6'3". "Big and Tall" stores stock clothes for fat men, some of whom happen to also be tall. Help me find extra tall, well-fitting shirts, jackets, and sweaters for a thin man, because I can't seem to find these anywhere myself. [more inside]

Where can I find pastel oxford dress shirts, size 14?

Where can I find oxford type dress school shirts in a size 14? I am looking for pastel school shirts, size 14. I have the normal colors (yellow, pink blue white) but I want green, orange etc. The better the brand (Ralph lauren, tommy hilifiger), the better. I know polo doesn't make size 14, and I would like direct links to the item not just brand websites. Btw, I want oxford with the buttons on the collar, not dress shirts and also the cheaper the better but thats not really an issue. Thanks

Men's Custom Tailoring

Looking at this thread about fitted shirts, I figured I'd ask about my men's dress shirt predicament. I'm 6'5", have a 14.5" neck, 36" arms and a 37" waist. If you've ever shopped, well, anywhere for men's shirts, you'll know that such a size doesn't exist. My neck seems to throw everything off.

I've tried the Lands' End and JC Penney online custom shirt services and the shirts have come out very wrong -- they don't seem to rely on real measurements, just generalities about one's build which don't take my quirks into account, and I get the feeling they're just sewing long arms onto a small-necked shirt (which doesn't fit well around my torso). I've gone in for a few custom tailoring quotes and, well, I really don't want to have to pay $500 for a small set of shirts that I won't wear every day. Anyone else solve this one?

Should we customize our clothes ourselves or outsource this?

My fiancee is looking into the possibility of selling clothes with custom art/text/etc. She knows about CafePress and such, but is looking for a way to get text/images on black and dark clothes. Shirts, hoodies, pants, etc.

There's always the 'custom-shirts-for-10-dollars' places, but she doesn't want to sell anything that's going to fade in a month, or is otherwise of questionable quality. Have any of you had good experiences with online companies that provide custom printing services? Would it be a good idea to look into purchasing a silkscreen machine? [more inside]
