SO I've always wanted to ask this, but just haven't ever gotten around to it. Is it hard for you guys to buy normal off the rack stuff when it comes to shirts, too? My shoulders are too damn wide and my back is too damn thick for most regular shirts, and with this modern fit bull**** that seems to be in, it's generally a lost cause. Most of the cool stuff seems to be made for the anorexic metrosexual bitches who don't lift. Do you guys have any online sites for us thick and wide guys or particular stores that seem to work for you?

T-shirts I dont have a problem with but button downs are a nightmare anymore. There so tight around my back I cant move my arms fo fear of ripping. And don't even get me started on jeans. Every friggin pair is skinny jeans and even the ones that arent are way too slim through the thigh. I have the same problem as RD in that my waist is a 30 but I have yet to find a pair of jeans that size that fits my thighs.It's BULKING season: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/254139-swol-boones-quest.html

I've found Lucky jeans to be the best in that regard. And yes, button ups are the worst. I feel like if I move at all the biceps and the lats will bust out at any moment!!

You guys have to try the modern fits. For Tops, use modern fit and go like 1-2 sizes than your normal size. Then for jeans try tapered like a levis 508. You'll thank me for the jeans if you haven't tried it yet

I have a hard time with shirts. If I get a fitted shirt, it is a nice fit in the lower part, ab portion of the shirt, but sometimes can be too tight in the chest and back. As far as pants and jeans, I have to get a bigger size waist. If I get the waist I need, I have a hard time getting the pants on my quads and over my butt. I have a squat booty. Sometimes I can get the waist size I need, but then the pants are way too tight for my liking in the upper leg and butt part.
A nice t shirt brand for guys that lift is American Rag. They are sold as Macy's for $10, an everyday price. They are usually plain with no graphics which is nice. Comes in a short v neck and crew neck.

Jeans: Lee Modern Series Relaxed Bootcut - $27. Wrangler has the same thing in a rougher fabric with less seat/butt for $20.
Slacks: Haggar Stria - $30
Polos: Izod - $20?
Short Sleeve Button Up: Banana Republic - $20?
Long Sleeve Button-up: Geoffrey Beene - $30?
Ya'll got any shorts suggestions? Best I can find is Lee Dungaree cargos in a size too big.

buttown downs are terrible....i'm 5'5 so the bottom of the shirt is either super long or looks like a garbage bag, express button downs fit well for the most part, other ones are hit or miss
t shirts could be the same way, ralph lauren v necks fit well but the shirt doesn't fit right around the waist and looks super baggy, for me banana republic v necks are too loose around the neck and shoulders

At a hundred bones a pair, those Lucky jeans better be the best. They were honestly my last resort and I was moments from trying some on before I tried the Lees.
It might be worth noting that my shirt size is 19-35/36, so I think I'm in 2XL's at Banana Republic.

I'm kinda screwed too cause I'm tall, for my work shirts (button downs and slacks) I'm almost to the point I'm going to start needing them tailored. Most I have now are getting too tight around the chest, due to back and chest growing. It's a good problem to have but I hate clothes shopping so I was hoping to be able to put it off, lol. And for short sleeve shirts I hate XL cause they're usually too baggy in the middle but Larges make it look like I'm wearing a kids shirt on my arms and chest. And women think they have it rough, lol

As a follow-up, I tried Luckys this weekend. Holy crap skinny jeans. I put on the bootcut (the only cut that got up my legs) and you could see the separation of each muscle in detail. I barely got the pants up my thighs. I could imagine just bursting out of them like a popped balloon if I sat down.
