kodiak-- take the lining out of an M-65 of its French equivalent and you'll be set.

Old polos are actually pretty good, as far as it goes...unless they're Hollister or something.

The cheaper the better, I am thinking about t-shirts but I am open to anything. All I have right now is old polos. Thanks!

I really liked those 50/50 cotton/linen shirts uniqlo put out last year. I'll buy more when they come out this year.

Madras is great too.

I have a bit of a tough time finding clothes that fit. Pants are always way too tight in the ass and way loose in the waist. End up buying overly baggy and using a belt... really tired of using a belt all the time. Shirts are similar tight in chest loose in waist, but less of a prob than pants using shirts with some stretch.

I'm 6ft 200lb around 10% bodyfat, fairly muscular.

44in chest
34.5in waist
42in hips

Yea... I'm an hourglass.... WTF!?

Is there anywhere you guys can think of that sell clothes that would fit my body-type well? I like a lot of the clothes I see on the forums, but know I could never fit the style. Is MTM my only hope?I'm pretty cheap, but if its the only route then so be it.

^Band of Outsiders shirts have a massive taper. You'd probably be an XXL or even XXXL, but I don't know if they make such a thing. I'd recommend just getting shirts that fit you well in the neck, chest, and shoulders (and have sleeves that are long enough) and have them darted at the waist to fit better there. However, too much darting will give you a weird hourglass figure, which I doubt you'd want. As far as pants go, try wearing them lower, so that they're sitting on your hips, rather than your waist. APC Rescues are a pretty generous cut.

chrispy: yeah, they only have colored slimfit "jeans" in grey, khaki etc. and the regular light blue/grey trousers on the site, but they also have chinos, seersucker pants, and maybe some other stuff in the nyc store. I'm sure they could give you a more complete inventory if you called.

Naw it's my uncle's wedding but I don't understand why people don't like black suits.

In the US, outside of nightclubs, weddings, and funerals, it's kind of just not done. I'm not exactly sure why. You could start a thread in Men's Clothing about it and I'm sure it would explode into some 25-page monstrosity about 'the rules' and how you're meant to break them. Might be fun.

MC has a 50-page thread about black suits 1~2 times/month. Everyone makes all these great arguments about why not to wear them, but nobody argues against them (other than occasional trolls). It's kinda vain.

Do you mean in vain, or vanity? I guess both apply.
post #120 of 4947
I originally meant in vain, but you're right that those threads are a form of vanity...
