Men’s clothing in Ecuador is a bit different than clothing back in the United States. Some of the styles are similar, but some are very Latin. And it can be hard to find larger sizes for both clothing AND shoes.
Additionally, the cut is a bit different due to the average smaller size of Ecuadorians compared to Americans. I have found that the rise is a little high, the fit is a little slim and the sizes run very small.
I wear medium shirts and 34 pants for clothes bought in the US. However, I often buy large or extra-large shirts and 36-38 waist in Ecuadorian stores. Sizes larger than XL are very difficult to find so you may want to bring an ample supply of large clothes and shoes with you when you move to Ecuador.
