V-taper problems

Off the rack clothes fit like shit. They're made so God damn boxy for fat fucks whose waists are as wide as their shoulders. I busted out a sewing machine and am learning to tailor my own shirts because I've had enough.
What do you wear to fit your IST physique?
And to make it more fit, what body parts should be accentuated to give a v-taper? I think the most important three are shoulders, shoulders, and shoulders.

    at this point I've given up. Good quality tees (cloth wise) that are fit well on my shoulders and chest are too big for the lower torso. On the other hand, if I go two sizes smaller, it fits well down under but gf says I look like one of those underarmour douchebags who wear skin tight clothing.

    There's no in between, so I've come to terms with the skeletal look. The only consolation is big sizes tees are comfy and airy. Nobody even notices it anymore.

      I refuse to give up. Following a youtube tutorial right now, will post results later today when I figure out how to use the sewing machine.

      Vuori seems like one of the few companies that make clothes by fit people for fit people.

    Buy clothes in an european or asian cut. American clothes are designed for fats, euro clothes are designed for women.

      Not anymore. They embraced the boxy cut now.

    Buy a shirt that fits your shoulders, and bring it to a tailor to taper in the mid section.

      This is my plan but for now I found 3 shirts that are semi-decent so I'm just rotating through those until the next bullmarket and I can afford a proper tailor.

    I buy those $6 shirts from target. Tight on my shoulders and arms and slim on the waist. Very nice quality.

        Yeah, it's called goodfellow. They sometimes shrink if you wash them too much but you can just get a size up and you'll be fine.

    40 inch chest and 33 inch waist. it sucks for shirts. i either wear ones that are too big and hang off my chest for day to day shit. for going out in evenings ill wear ones that are too tight on the chest/arms and form fitting for my waist. i recall years ago that walmart/target had cheap fruit of the loom crew or v-necks that were slim fit and looked perfect for IST people. now they are all box cut. fucking fatties.
