Solid charcoal gray (but definitely not black) is also a good choice, but I'd lean toward that as a second suit, not an only suit. If he goes wild and wants a third suit, then he can think about pinstripes or glen plaid (maybe that's a fourth suit). I forgot to mention shoes: With navy or charcoal, the safest choice is black oxfords. I prefer captoes myself, but that's just me. Please don't let him wear some square-toed monstrosity.
I was going to say something snarky about how a gentleman should know how to select clothes, or at least ask for advice, without relying on his girlfriend. But it occurred to me that your boyfriend might know some other stuff that I don't know how to do, like do calculus. Everyone is good at something. Therefore: He should go to a quality menswear store or at least a nice department store and buy a quality solid navy blue suit. It will last him through several weddings,...
The easiest way to spot a fake Rolex is: They're always on the wrist of the kind of person who would wear a fake Rolex.
I don't get the problem. I think this would be an awesome look.Oh, sorry, wait. You're a dude? Then wifebeaters and looser shirts.
I thought of two more:11. I subscribe to's n-2 rule for how many buttons to button on a polo shirt, where n = the total number of buttons on the shirt.12. If I were single, the formula I would use for determining whether a woman was too young for me to date would be the "half + 7" rule: Take half your age and add seven years -- that's the minimum.
Back to the non-rule rules: 1. If I wear a suit without a tie, I wear a patterned shirt. It looks less like I just forgot to put on a tie. Still, I do this as rarely as possible. 2. We are "business casual" at my office, but I wear a jacket or blazer or suit coat every day. No casual Fridays allowed. 3. I have casual cotton jackets that I wear in the summertime, but I don't pair them with nice wool trousers. Cotton goes with cotton. I have been known to wear a navy linen...
Why are you libeling us in this way?
I disagree. I went from 215 lbs to 160 lbs and did not keep any of my old suits/jackets. Not having those clothes as a fallback position is a good incentive to keep the weight off. It's been five years and counting for me. OP can resize on the way down if he's still losing weight, but 42 to 40 is at or beyond the level of doable -- you lose more size in your shoulders and chest than you would expect. Also, plan on getting new shirts, because the necks will become too large.
Agree this is the best option of what you presented.After Starting today, you need to spend a LOT more time lurking here. And maybe donate your clothes, especially those brown shoes and your ties, to charity and start over.
You're in Urkel territory now, my friend.
