As a reasonably thin man, I'd kill for easier bespoke clothing. Even slim fit button-up shirts I wear for work often are loose around the torso or have unflattering folds when tucked in. With pants, it seems to range from rail-thin Holocaust survivor that I can't even get on to searching through piles of jeans for a diamond in the rough in just my size and cut. I suspect being in the American midwest might be part of the problem, though.
in terms of non-bespoke solutions, try some of the asian brands. their average sizes are smaller. can you get uniqlo in the mid-west?

'standard' american clothing seems baffling to europeans because there is no consideration of fit whatsoever. huge baggy trousers, ill-fitting shirts, etc. it's really bizarre when you look at a 'normie'-looking american person and it's like every piece of clothing was designed for someone else's body.

Apparently, they've got a store downtown. It is a quandary though, because sometimes "thin" clothing is for people with no muscles whatsoever. I don't think I have terribly large muscles from running, but I've tried on some skinnier cut pants that I would not be able to fit in without planing down  some muscle groups.

was talking more about sizing standards than the skinny/slim/standard cutting. most brands do their standard button-down shirts in several cuts.

I've found Van Heusen have a range of fits and are reasonable quality for shirts.

Their shirts are so thin that they're transparent. They also run short. Not a fan at all.

Really? Must be a different range they sell there. They're thick as card here.
