Basically,

I'm 6"3 nearing 6"4 and its such a pain finding clothes that fit correct when I go shopping (correct meaning, in proportion, i.e shirts not coming up too short or jeans/trousers too long), I don't even shop online for clothes now days, as I dread the hassle it'll be only to find out my purchases don't fit which tends to be a common occurrence. Am I the only one with these kinds of problems, if not what are your suggestions ?

First world problems, I know...

I know the feeling a little, only goes for jeans with me tho.
But fuck it, rather be tall and have a harder time finding jeans than being a 5'9 midget ass

Lol, my cousin used to wear shirts that were always proportioned funny on him because he's really tall. Sleeves are normal length but shirt is above his waist. He's like 6'4 but skinny as fuck...oh well 5'10 lifestyle for me so im good with the sizing in most clothes.

That's more or less my problem, the only solution I have is wearing the XXL T-Shirts from American Apparel, the fits got the perfect length and the build is correct.. ! The jacket I am wearing is so bad too, its a regular North Face one but it comes up noticeably short :/

Lool I love how you specify "5'9"...I agree though, women love my height so I'd rather be how I am now, rather than sacrifice my height and miss out on its perks

Your a good weight for your height. I have to wear medium size shit because a large will start to look too big for me. I weigh 145 pounds (I know im frail and DGAF).

@totalespionage Thanks, and thats no problem man, as long as you're healthy and happy ! Any suggestions on denim that fits well ? I've tried Evisu but they are way too baggy and Levis are cool also

Honestly I hate to tell you to go here because their always saying "size down" but the folks at SUFU (superfuture) will be the best place to ask denim sizing questions.

No prob. I would suggest getting Sanforized denim for your first "jawnz" (lol). They will have very minimal to no shrinkage so the fit is true to size. IDK just some things that might help you. I have been the same height and size since like 9th grade so I have never really had sizing issues, but I know how frustrating it is to have a nice piece of clothing and the fit is not in tune with your body structure. Shit sucks man.

I'm like 6'2 but my wingspan is 6'9 and i weigh like 215 right now, with huge thighs and a huge butt. so when i wear shirts, they either come up short on my arms because theyre so long, or they look real baggy when they fit my arms. and when i get jeans, they fit really awkwardly, especially since if i get the right waist size theyre real tight on my thighs, if i go big eniugh for my thighs theyre loose in the waste, its a real hassle.

Don't shop online for starters. Try things before you buy them. Learn your neck size and sleeve length and buy oxfords that match. Also, get Ralph Lauren buttons ups. They tend to have longer shirt tails to make sure they stay tucked in. And find a tailor. Sometimes you have to size up to get the right length and tailor to get the right fit. Don't be gun shy about spending the extra dough at the tailors. If you're buying quality, it's a worth while expense IMO.

yeah im highkey pounding at my keyboard rn getting heated, but its really nothing we can do about it razz So how was your day today?

Tailor bro. I don't know much about quality denim tailors that bring in the waist, but I'm sure there are some guys out there.

Something I've been considering for a while (getting a tailor), I just need to look around and find a decent one, I know there are a lot of chancers about where I live who charge for such shitty jobs, but I dont mind branching out. Also I need to invest in measuring tape asap aha ! thanks for the advice man, I'm going to apply them !

Yup. Even more, women don't care so much about your clothes as much as your fitness and hygiene. Stay well groomed even if you have a rugged look. Stay fit. Smell clean. Keep your breath right and your teeth white. Keep your ears clean, and your skin moist. Things like this actually go a longer way than fresh clothes. A pretty clean nigga with a better body than me in a plain T and jeans will out perform me in my best outfit. So be happy. Tall is good. But this ain't a hygiene thread so I'll stop hijacking.
