    Do you guys get your stuff custom made? I went to get a new suit and nothing off the rack fit me. I have to get a size 48 to fit my shoulders and arms but the waist is made for someone 8months pregnant.

    Any place that sells athletic cut or custom makes them for cheap that you know of?


    A little trick I've found for button up shirts is to stop by mens wearhouse and get button extenders if your shirt won't button on the top or is too tight. They're free and you can link them together. :)

    My suit is a 48L, seems to fit fine, I might get the sleeves cut about 1/2 inch shorter though. It's Liz Claiborne.

    If you're gonna buy a nice suit, why not just have it tailored? :dunno:

    And to answer your question, almost every jacket or nice pair of pants that I buy has to be tailored.

    Yeah, you gotta have it tailored. It's not too expensive and your clothes will look much better on you than just off the rack.

    I generally go custom. Some European labels may fit though depending on your shoulders and waist size.

    For your size you need to have it tailored or custom, though I thought you would wear a bigger jacket than 48.

    For your size, also remember to consider the waist line of the jacket. For your chest size, the jacket they make usually is long.

    I have to get it tailored custom.

    Having a 33" waist, but large shoulders and 18"+ arms causes some problems with fitment. Anything thing that fits my shoulders and arms is way too large around the waist.
    I have the same problem buying clothes from Abercrombie and some express stuff.

    I am dreading when I get a real job after college and will probably have to drop a good $1,500 on custom suits :noes:

    Werd, I can't wear any of that trendy clothing now unless I buy XL and I'm still a little guy... Fits my arms and shoulders and that shit is just hanging like a tent over the rest of me

    What do you do for normal "stylish" clothes?

    Most of my clothes come from:

    Old Navy, Gap, Express, H&M, and such. It just takes me longer to shop because some stuff will fit and other stuff won't.
