Source for smaller sizes?

I've run into a roadblock in my pant buying quest. Why? Because I'm that anomoly: a small american. I'm a 5'9" with a 27.5 inch waist. So every pair of pants I try on is like swimming in a tent (if one could do such a thing). The closest fit I can find is Dainese in a size 46, but it's still too big around the waist. I'd imagine the 44 or 42 would be just right, but when I try and find them they are out of stock in those sizes. Anyone have a good source for smaller items?

Thanks!

You're 5" 9" with a 27.5" waist? You are male?

Wow. So your inseam must be what 32-33? Buy the correct length then bring them to a good tailor to have the waist taken in.

Or, spend more time at 5 Guys Burgers and Fries. (My new favorite burger joint.)

Yep, male. I wrestled in Middle/High School, so my metabolism is all out of whack. Believe me, I can eat some burgers....it just doesn't do anything.

I use a 46 Euro suit off the rack and I have a 28" waist.

46 Euro is also just a little loose for me, but I use a hard back protector which has an intergrated kidney belt, so the belt fills the waist area abit.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Yep, tried the 46 and it was just a bit too loose in the waist, which is why I'm after a 44.
