I'm 5'9" but have always had to get suits tailored. I'm proportioned weirdly--built like a tank with a long toro, so I generally shop in the big and tall section when buying off the rack, then get them seriously tailored so they don't look like a tent

I've bought custom shirts for years, but have never had them tailored.

I am short, but far too large. I wear 32/32 pant (they fit perfectly generally) but normally have to get large shirts because I have a bigger chest and neck (18.5in). I haven’t had a major issue shopping for shirts and hoodies. More jeans than anything, to comfortably fit my glutes.

Tailor your clothes.

D1, do they measure you and tailor accordingly or do you have to tell them your sizes? I’ve never gotten things tailored in the US

A lot of places will alter for free. Nordstrom, JCrew off the top of my head.

Bonobos has great clothes, which is kinda surprising to me because I recently discovered Walmart owns them. Go in the store and get the right fit tho. They have a bunch of different styles and fits for all different body types. If you order online, without trying things on first, you will most likely be returning.
