Well, Hollister is owned by Abercrombie so it makes sense that they size their clothings similarly. Last time I was in the US, Hollister in particular tended to target a younger generation of pre teens and young teens so it also makes sense their clothes run on the small side.

Try Urban Outfitters, I know that some of the clothes there for men are artsy and some are not and they are not the kind of clothing like ANF and Hollister were as the logo is embossed. Some of the clothing is roommy too. Good luck

Abercrombie targets males, roughly aged 13 to 19, who do not pay for their own clothes. Your average teenage boy does not have adult-sized shoulders.

This is it...it's a teen store, so it runs comparatively small.

Welcome to the woman's world. Now you guys get to feel fat trying to squeeze into "young men" cuts just like we have all these years that they have been driving us crazy with juniors vs. miss vs. women!

Also death for a teen label's sales....seeing it on a mom or dad.

I think Armani cuts kinda big in the shoulder area. If you are looking for basics try J.Crew. I think they make nice cuts for guys that are not too baggy and the stuff lasts a long time.

Why the heck would you buy these brands in the first place?

I wouldn't ever have my kids be disgraced by these clothes.

My son is 21. Even he can't wear AF, Hollister and so on. He's not "stocky" build per se, but he does a lot of weight lifting so has larger shoulders and legs.
