Shirts for V shape body, any suggestions?

I'm not muscular I just have a toned body, however my body shape is a little different then the most guys. My waist is 30 but my shoulders are 42. So the shirts that I'm supposed to buy are large size but it looks weird because the bottom part of it seems very loose. Kinda looks like I'm wearing a gown. Shoulder size is large waist part is small- extra small. Any tips on brands that I should be buying. I like to wear tight shirt but not too tight :). I buy my clothing from Express, guess, Armani exchange, 7 jeans and Hugo boss. I buy my shirts from those store and I pay a Taylor to fit it to my body. What should I do? I hate waiting for tailors to make my shirts ready and it makes feel awkward because no one else does that.

  • Yeah I'm kinda like you too. Plus when you work out your shoulders get broader and waist keeps toning :P

    I hope I don't run into that when I'm older.

    Well you should google 'slim fit' clothes and you will get several results from brands in your locality.

    Levis and abercrombie and fitch are the best when it comes to casual slim fits.

    Plaid shirts from these brands in specific are usually longer in length than usual clothes made for shorter fatter on the waist genre of people. Plus they embrace the shape of your body (which is V-like in most slim person cases and not flat towards the bottom), without looking like small baby clothes that fit too uncomfortably.

    There are other clothes that are small in size (usually tee shirts and sweaters in cases of men) which stretch. Now these are supposed to fit, and they don't let loose on the bottom either. Plus, since its stretchable material not only is it perfect fit, it looks good too unlike loose dress shirts and all.

    I also like jackets, because they cover everything up. I usually tuck in my shirts in trousers, wear a nice belt, and then wear a trench coat or a simple long coat on top. It gives you a perfect shape on the lower body and you don't have to care about fittings.

    In dress clothes, yours MUST fit no matter what size, weight or proportion you are. So do keep buying quality brands and keep having them altered because that's the best way out.

  • Its fine to get them tailored especially if that makes you feel good wearing them. No use in wearing something that you don't feel good in just because no one else does it. I think your best bet is to wear shirts that don't hug you tummy. You want your body to flow. I'd say try v-necks and other t-shirts first and see how it goes.

  • Good for you. I'm a 32 and 42 on the shoulders. I actually buy things a little larger just in case I put on any more muscle.

    You should go to target and get there Ts. Buy the large they run a little smaller.

    For dress sh*ts its hard, its gona vary place to place.

  • If you need to have tailor made stuff, that's fine. Lots of people, even normally proportioned people do it. Thing is, it is much better to wear something that you are happy and comfortable in (i.e. feels and looks right) than not waiting for it or getting brand names or something.

  • As far as I know the best results are from buying clothes and having them tailored. I haven't found an alternative to that yet. Unless you date someone who will studied fashion design or something and will make your clothes for you... there's an idea. :P

  • I know what you mean. Here in Italy it is the norm and you find a lot of store that offer these for the young crowd. I don't remeber specific brands but shop for italian style shirts maybe online you can find some.
