    Hey Style Crew, my first visit here..


    Anyways, I've been having trouble finding stuff that actually fits on me. I'm about 5'6" around 125-130lbs. Men's Small can normally fit -sometimes- but it doesn't fit great. I really try to find stores that have XS.

    I've been looking around, Express is a bit big and I'm done ever buying cloths from Hollister / AE etc.. ( not a highschool fag ). I'm located in Seattle if there is local anyone knows here in the area and looking to step up my style a little bit but not after anything in particular mostly just something that fits.

    Thanks!

    when you say it doesnt fit great, where is it that you would like it to fit better? slimmer cut? shoulders?

    and what kind of shirts are you looking at? tees? button ups? polos?

    Slimmer cut to an extent. In general "Smalls" are a bit too big all around, the sleeve length cut itself, length on the bottom.

    Button-ups / Polos. Tees you I can find just about anywhere and most fit well enough.

    well there's always the standard suggestion of American Apparel
    but i'm trying to think where they have button ups in XS..or just really slim fitting ones. I would have suggested Express, but you already said they dont really work for you. H&M?

    I think you have to find the stores that are specifically XXI and not just forever 21, that's my understanding anyway

    does zara have small sizes?

    ive never been to a zara here in the u.s., but when i was in china and hong kong, all the zara stores i went to, only had sizes starting at medium :confused: and the guy working there just said that's how it is over there :dunno:

    I could've sworn that i've seen things in a size small there but my friend said he didn't find any when he went. But their sizing runs small as far as I can tell. I'm 5'9" 160~ and mediums fit pretty snug on me and I generally wear smalls at other stores

    I'm 5'6" and 135.....and most smalls are still a bit wide for me as well.

    h&m and zara are great though. their smalls fit me perfectly
