Thanks and no offense taken. I'm down from 244 so I'm on my way.Thanks for the suggestions.
To start with I am relatively oddly shaped when it comes to dress clothes. I'm 6' tall and 230lbs. My waist is 40 and length is 30. Shirts that fit me best are 17.5 neck and 35 arm. Frustrating nonetheless since I don't have enough income to pay for MTM shirts/pants. On to my issue: I have problems finding pants that fit well and look good. I recently bought a few pairs of Brook Bros (outlet) pants and was relatively pleased with the fabric and look for the cost. I...

I'm guessing if you're asking this kind of question it's probably good enough for what you do .... most scuba diving is done in the 100 to 130 feet range. If you're going deeper than 167 feet I suggest the Omega Seamaster (e.g., Planet Ocean good up to...

The first shirt I got was a bit tight - I took some photos and sent them to MT along with my measurement changes and the second...

Just purchased my first pair of AE's. Got them from Nordstrom Rack for $90! Anyway - most of my shoes the leather on the upper cracks (not very bad, but when you run your finger across it or when they haven't been cleaned you can definitely feel/see the difference) where my foot bends. The last pair I bought (bostonian) I used lexol cleaner/conditioner along with kiwi wax before I wore them. Then I reapplied lexol/kiwi as I felt appropriate based on how the shoe...

Any thoughts? I think I'm going to add 1cm to the arms holes, 1cm to the cuffs and maybe 2-3cm to the chest/back (yoke)?
Got my shirt in today. Took 10 days from the day I ordered it until it reached my doorstep - not bad! This is a tester shirt - going to send it back and get some changes done. I haven't had a chance to see how the measurements are as compared to what I ordered, but it's awfully tight in the chest/back and the arms aren't long enough. Construction is good, but one of the cuffs has grime on it (I've already washed and ironed it). I'm 6' 230...

Everyone always seems to complain about bigger than expected...
