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...

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...

Everyone always seems to complain about bigger than expected...
Hi All, I'll try to get photos, but right now all I have is measurements. What do you think? Do these make sense (had my g/f measure me) ... I'm 6' 220lbs. Measurements from my Brooks Bros Slim Fit - 17.5" neck / 34" sleeves (I followed MT's instructions) Collar - 17.5" Chest - 25" Waist - 25" Hip - 26.5" Sleeve Length - 24" Bicep - 9.5" Cuffs - 9.5" Yoke - 20" Shoulder - 7" Shirt Length - 33" Arm Hole - 12" Measurements taken from my body (I followed...
Thanks guys for the help - sorry for the poor quality photos. When I cross my arms it pulls in the back - would this be because the shoulders are too wide or the sleeves are too short? I'd guess the former? All my shirts (including this one) are off the rack ready to wear so I'm a bit ignorant when it comes to shirt measurements.
After reading most of the Modern Tailor thread, I'm considering having a shirt made by them. I took a few pictures of a shirt I feel fits okay (which I hope to take measurements from), but figured I'd air it out here to see if there are some things I should change. I feel the back is a little tight when I fold my arms, but otherwise I don't have any other issues. Maybe a little too much fabric around the waist and in the bicep area? Sorry for the poor quality...
