God damn, you 'workout' and look like that? You're wasting your time... why do you keep saying your upper body is fairly built?

Stop and think about this for a moment. No one is built the same; there is no magical price point at which a slim-fit shirt will start looking great on everyone. Some will look good in a Merona shirt and bad in Zegna shirt; others will have the opposite experience.

That's why you get dress shirts tailored

Dude, the vast majority of mens clothing has a mentality of "lowest common denominator" aka they don't want to alienate anyone. Therefore, even for their smallest size, the fit is meant to accommodate all body sizes at the very expense of fit. So the end result is gigantically proportioned fitting shirts, regardless of size, that can fit anyone within a 70 lb. size range. Case in point, you.

I'm as much for affordable well fitting brands as much as anyone, I don't ball out in Lanvin or Rick on a daily basis, but the vast majority of the American public is simply not ready for slim fitting clothes. So no, of course not, a fucking shirt from JCPenny won't fit like it's from Band of Outsiders. The flaw in your logic is that the only people who would look "right" at the vast majority of lame mall brands are fat fucks who are way overweight,

^^That's not much of an argument, but I suppose it fits in with your whole interwebs persona pretty well.

if slim fit is the current style, why can't you fathom that baggy fit was once a style?

Wtf does this even mean?
post #35305 of 117677
Eh? Sorry, lei, that was in response to jet.

But listen: the crucial thing you left out -- and that I made clear -- is that that those shirts were silly things I threw on when trying on different brands of slim-fitting pants. (That pink one is from 8th grade, the loud one, my brother's Girbaud, circa '89 [!]). Yeah, they're baggy and old and don't fit, oh noes! Anyway, I think if you can get past your defensiveness and actually read what I wrote in response to Lane, my position isn't really that bizarre. Or do you really believe, say, the look found in *your* last fit pic (small plaid shirt, khakis) -- good or bad -- couldn't be assembled at -- gasp! -- the shopping mall!

I know the MC forum isn't too popular, here, but a lot of those guys integrate differently-priced looks (from a variety of places) into something, er, stylish.

Lol of course it can, be it would fit like shit. Seriously, I grew up in a small town which didn't even have a GAP, do you think I don't know how badly the vast majority of men's clothing fits? I'm still waiting on the high fashion trickle down effect to make some good slim fitting clothes at cheap prices, but so far all that's being offered are skinny jeans that are sized to small ala Levis Ex-Girlfriend fit. If you think I could walk into GAP, buy the same items, and have them fit me as well then I'm sorry, I'm just done because there'd be no convincing you. And surprise, none of the stuff I'm wearing is particularly expensive/designer either, it's almost all All Saints!
post #35307 of 117677
No need to convince me; I'm not trying to argue your experience -- just that this whole notion of 'mall brands' vs. 'quality' brands is somewhat of an illusion. One that, when mixed with a healthy dose of ignorance and bizarrely unearned elitism, can be vastly annoying.

(Cue: Persian Bro)

Maybe he doesn't want to bulk up huge he just wants not to be skin and bones?

i was a little worried about the pushed up sleeves too - thanks for the feedback. i guess part of the reason i pushed up was i didn't like how the sleeves fit width-wise (the length was perfect) i'll post a non-pushed-up fit soon.

Noobizor took my original point and molested it to the point of utter stupidity.
