Hey guys, not sure if this is the best place to post but I’m looking for recommendations. Since I have climbed I have skimmed out heaps in my chest and torso while bulking up my shoulders greatly. It seems like small shirts are too tight in my shoulders and mediums are billowing and loose in my stomach and chest. Do you all have any preferred brands you shop?

I've had the same problem. For casual shifts, brands that have tended to fit me are Rab, The North Face (only if slim fit), Patagonia (only if slim fit), Gramicci, and Black Diamond. For dress shirts I've stuck with Calvin Klein Steel slim fits and Tommy Hilfiger slim fits.

Army surplus store has tank tops for $7.00 a shirt. I recently got ahold of a La Sportiva Parker/jacket. They incorporated spandex in the armpit area. I can now wear it with out restricting the blood flow through my arms.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
