Ranting: nice clothes and overweight people.. - Page 20

post #286 of 288
I'm assuming that once you've shelled out $4000 on a bespoke suit, you'd want to stay in shape so as not to outgrow the suit. Thomas Mahon mentioned that most of clients would pull in their stomach when he's measuring their waist, because a lot of people, consciously or otherwise, are conscious of the importance of "waist suppression." He would always tell them "to relax" so that he can get an accurate waist measurement.

Shamelessly though I confess that I'm glad that the travelling tailors only travel to the US infrequently. The long interval between the first measurement and the first fitting could be used to get into shape

In this case I think I would wait until my weight was at a 6 month average before taking the plunge.

I certainly wouldnt buy at the peak of fitness, as too much work, not enough time to exercise as much etc etc, would lead to weight gain

I was going to say this thread needs resurrecting, but that may be overstating things. In any case, it's better than the most recent "Why do good clothes happen to fat people?" thread.

I'm getting a T-shirt made that says "No fat guys (in bespoke)". It will be a custom size 48 with a negative-20 drop.
