A little rant about being a smaller man

A little rant about being a smaller man
I’m 5ft6in, 125 lbs with a 28-30 waist and 34in chest with a 39/ 39,5 EU shoes size ( there’s some discrepancy in size charts but that should be 6/7 US).I never felt self conscious about my size, but it’s something it started to bother me when I started to get interested in fashion.I have most of my clothes altered, I don’t mind having a pair of jeans hemmed, or having a shirt tapered, or other basic alterations. But you know very well some aspects of a garment can’t be altered or it would be too expensive to do so. Shoulders size cannot be altered ( fortunately I have wide shoulders), chest size can’t be touched and so on.I have realized a very good portion of clothes are just out for me, the smallest size would be too big for me. There are some items tipically sized bigger since it’s tradition to wear them more loosely ( shetland sweaters for example) and other brands that are just sized bigger because they like to do so ( I was interested in enginereed garments, I can’t buy anything of their stuff without massive alterations).Some shoes companies, unless their shoes are unisex, don’t even make shoes smaller than 7US. This is fortunately a smaller problem since I’ve found the companies I’m interested in make shoes in size 6/7US, but only just.And I’m lucky we are still in the “slim era” where clothes are supposed to fit somewhat slim, I fear the time when the loose silhouette will be the main fashion.Look, I’m not criticizing fashion brands. I realize an individual of my size is not profitable to target, afterall there are few people of this size. I’m just saying a 5ft10, average weight man, will fit in basically 90% of brands. I fit in 20% of brands. This is a problem tall people share with shorter/smaller men, but for opposite reasons.I used to weight more when I used to go to the gym, I was around 5-6 kgs heavier than now. Unfortunately I stopped going to the gym and lost everything.This is it. Sorry if I made bad mistakes but english is not my primary language. Thank you.

Looking for winter boots from an EU brand or available in amazon.de/amazon.co.uk
Hi all.I read the boots starter guide but most of the brands aren’t available in EU or the delivery is too expensive and have to be processed at the customs.I am looking for boots which:I can wear in light snow/icing – from 10 to -15 degrees CI can wear in the office(informal dress code) without my feet getting too hot. Air conditioning is set to 25 degrees CAre brown, size 46 EU, made of leather.Aren’t too fancy. I have worn T shirts and sneakers all my life since my parents didn’t have money so wearing something too fancy makes me feel self conscious and doesn’t fit with the rest of my wardrobe.*Are preferably under 170 – 180$. I plan on wearing the boots 2-3 years 3-4 months every year.All suggestions are welcomed even if something doesn’t fit my list. I don’t know if they look good but I like these models:https://www.amazon.de/Geox-Herren-Mattias-Chukka-Browncotto/dp/B0792FK7WZ/ref=sr_1_6?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1543585172&sr=1-6&keywords=geoxhttps://www.amazon.de/camel-active-Canberra-Schneestiefel-Chestnut/dp/B079LP5HWR/ref=sr_1_37?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1543585198&sr=1-37&refinements=p_n_size_browse-vebin%3A1890904031%2Cp_n_feature_twenty-nine_browse-bin%3A14603211031&psc=1https://www.amazon.de/Rieker-Herren-39223-Klassische-Stiefel/dp/B01EIJO68A/ref=sr_1_10?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1543585384&sr=1-10&refinements=p_n_size_browse-vebin%3A1890904031%2Cp_n_feature_twenty-nine_browse-bin%3A14603211031%2Cp_72%3A419118031%2Cp_n_feature_six_browse-bin%3A1890636031%2Cp_n_size_two_browse-vebin%3A14223261031&psc=1

Which Parka should I buy?

Which Parka should I buy?
Hey guys, first time parka buyer here. I’ve never really owned a warm enough jacket/coat for the winter. I’m going to finally invest in one. I will also be using it for skiing. Below are the brands I’ve taken a look at:L.L Bean, 66 North, Canada Goose, Fjallraven, Triplefatgoose, Woolrich, ColumbiaI live in NYC and Canada Goose is just worn by too many people for my taste.I am willing to spend $600-$800. There are 3 parkas that have caught my eye:Chenega II – TripleFatGooseThorsmork – 66 NorthKYL PARKA -Fjallraven (do not like the idea of having to reapply wax on a parka to make it waterproof)I was really leaning towards the Chenega II, until I read that TripleFatGoose only has a one year warranty. Does anyone own one of their parkas and is able to vouch for its durability? Or do you know if they offer out-of-warranty repairs?Let me know if there is another parka I should consider, I am open to suggestions!Thanks!

Pocket Tie and Square Recommendation

Pocket Tie and Square Recommendation
I know there are a million combinations for a pocket square and tie, but I have a hard time seeing what will work in store.I currently have a midnight navy suit and a white or light blue shirt, and i’m trying to find a decent combination for a pocket square and tie. My options at this point is The Bay (Canada) since all my other stores barely have any selection in-store.I have a burgundy/white dotted pocket square from Banana republic: https://bananarepublic.gapcanada.ca/browse/product.do?pcid=5001&vid=1&pid=362093003&searchText=pocket+squareandthis this tie color, but solid: https://www.thebay.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442067384&R=400892632509&P_name=Haight+%26+Ashbury&Ntt=haight+%26+ashbury&N=0I’m also open to any other options, but I need it for this weekend and I kind of struck out on what I thought might work. I ideally something that goes with one of the pocket square or tie, but any recommendations would be helpful!
