What advice do you have for smaller transguys in terms of finding clothing? Nothing too fancy is necessary, I’m a college lad.
How small and what kind of proportions?Â I’m short with dancer/gymnast proportions (long, lean arms and legs, no torso to speak of) so I tend to go with either boys’ sizes or smaller men’s sizes in slim cuts.
If you’re more square or just out of kid sizes I’d go with places like H&M and TopMan, anywhere that stocks a men’s XS/XXS (usually these places cater to metro and/or emo college boys).Â If you can afford it, Abercrombie (kids, not A&F) has a nice selection of clothes in the “between boys’ and men’s” size range.Â For anyone who can get to a Celio, I maintain their shirts are magic.Â I end up wearing the same size as a far better built friend, it’s awesome.
I also recommend learning to sew.Â I know, you’re probably busy enough with college, but it’s a great way to get well fitting clothes for very little money.Â Besides, it means that if you find something you like that needs a tiny bit of alteration you can do it yourself.
