Daryl emailed in and asked this brain teaser…
I find it hard to find clothes in my size that are actually cool – I would be 28 waist and 30 leg for jeans/trousers and about 33-34 inch chest. For instance I love the colother at cult but they’re always slightly too big! Do you know any good sources for the smaller man?
Once again, I sent out the slave elves to search for mens clothing sites selling clothes for the smaller man. I briefed them with any site selling size 28/29 waist trousers, here’s what they came back with.
USC – a good selection of 28/29 jeans.
Burton – a few small ones lying around.
Bench – a few jeans.
Blue Inc – a couple of trousers in 28.
Dress For Less – Some small trousers and small and extra small tops.
La Redoute – No 28′s or 29′s but some 30′s.
M and M Direct – a few 28′s hiding amongst all the 30′s.
YOOX – Good selection with good search functionality to help you find your size.
Koodos – Hunt and ye shall find.
Surf Dome – A handful of 28/29 jeans.
Republic – A fair choice for the waif.
That’s about it, not a bad start for you to dig in and see what’s out there. I wouldn’t worry too much about length as you can get trousers/jeans adjusted quite easily. Check out the returns so you can exchange items if the measurements are abit off. Also, try and beef yourself up to a 30 inch waist and you’ll have a much easier time finding trousers to fit!
Let us know if you bought anything from these stores or anywhere else.
