    as the title says, im frickin tiny, so its very hard for me to shop for a nicer-jacket and cold weather coats for the night out in American malls. everything is too big for me. I drown in BR's 38S jackets. Well ok drown is exaggerating, but it's still too big. 36R fits OK, but just a tiny bit long. not too many brands carry 36Rs tho as far as I have found. For comparison, Giordano jackets i bought in China fit very nicely. good ol' cheap and simple-lookin Giordano :cool:
    last time I went to the mall I was looking for a brown blazer and only found one that I like and actually fits at.... the Gap... :coolugh: nothing against the Gap of course, but i usually think its overpriced. still, it was a simple jacket but i like the color, so whatever, sub $90.

    i wish there was a Kenneth Cole that'd fit me fine. hard for me to find KCs though, there is no KC store near me.
    anyway, suggestions?
    thanks!

    Giordano actually has an online store somewhere. G2000 did also but I think they took it down. Try www.yesstyle.com

    well i only said i think Gap is overpriced. but the item i bought was actually ok. i was thinking along the lines of t-shirts, polos, pants, etc. i don't mind paying more, but i'd like a better brand than Gap if i'm paying more, like FCUK or something. :dunno: just preference.


    in any case, your comment didnt answer my question :p
