Problem Solving: Why Can't I Find Clothes That Fit?

If you’re lucky, you can purchase a simple small, medium, or large shirt and feel confident it’ll fit you well. The thing is, most of us don’t fit neatly into a “general” category. Our bodies are all different, and traditional clothes rarely account for a wider body or a broader chest. The result? A standard “medium” will be the right length, but not the right width (or vice versa).


Knowing that people didn’t fit perfectly into one dimension, and that clothing manufacturers fail to account for width, we set out to bring 2 dimensions into your clothing choices. We thought of it like an expanding box in all directions. We envisioned width with Trim, Regular, and Broad markers in mind. For length, our small is based on men 5’3 - 5’4, medium 5’5 - 5’6, and large 5’7 - 5’8. By thinking about it like a box, we were really thinking “outside the box.”


Imagine it this way: you’re trying on shoes, and you’ve found a new pair that look great. The problem is, they pinch the sides of your feet and are tough to get on. You find another pair of the same style, and this time the width fits, but the toes stretch out about 3 inches too far. There’s no way you’d buy either pair of shoes - so why are we not holding shirts to the same standard? This was our key - this was our mission - this is why we started Sharp Casualwear.


So why can’t you find clothes that fit? Because you’re not a mannequin. People’s bodies are different and require more attention to detail. Choosing clothes that fit not only look better, they pump you full of confidence knowing you look your best. You’re not a traditional man, so don’t settle for “traditional” sizing options.
