Clothes sizing

I have been having a difficult time recently with finding clothes that fit. I am a classic 'tweener with most sizes. Most large shirts are just a tad too small but most XL shirts are too big... pant inseams; 32 is on the brink of flooding and 34 bunches up too much and I can't find too many that sell 33... and I have yet to find a brand of pants that fit around the crotchular/thigh region properly because even though I am a white man I actually have an ass and mens pants are not made for having an ass and end up being too tight showing off the goods up front or being way too baggy.

Now while most of my time is spent in uniforms I'm tired of looking and dressing like a schlepp and wearing the same crap for the past 3 years when I am in "civilian" attire. Anyone else have this issue? I am getting really frustrated when I go out to the stores.

Lucky Jeans seem to have lots of different cuts and sizes, I actually found a pair of jeans there that make my short legs look a little more normal.

+1 on getting your clothes tailored, it's cheaper than you think.
