Defiantly back the Tommy Bahama, but you can go anywhere that offers Big & Tall sizing. Banana Republic, Joseph A. Bank etc.

since this hasnt been answered yet...yea, no matter the size, a tailor is ALWAYS an option. No body is made the same, yet OTR shirts/pants are. A tailor fixes this. Definitely worth the money.

Welcome here...your sense of humor will help hahahaha

no its not. pay no attention to the bs. although this is a fashion forum, please make sure you spell correctly. for some reason people are very concerned with that.

How do you have large thighs but thin calves? How much do you weigh?

No, you're an idiot. It's a contraction of "you are".

To the OP, Cotton Works and Modern Tailor are both made-to-measure shirt makers, and both are forum affiliates. You can link to their web sites from the Men's Clothing sub-forum. Neither is particularly expensive, and they have a variety of colors and patters (just maybe stay away from big patterns and bright colors).

Shepler's has Levi's 501s going up to a 42 waist (http://www.sheplers.com/levis-jeans-...k-to-fit.html). Dark denim will probably be more flattering than the light-wash jeans you posted.

polo makes sizes up to 42 i think. they definitely also have a b&t line. if you're going on a date i would recommend really thinking about how much this girl is worth to you. if you want to make a good first impression don't spare any expense.

eff it...I'll take a shot based on what stylish big friends of mine wear.

I'd look into a good quality tailored blazer. If you dropped, say, $600 including tailoring to shorten sleeves etc., you'd have something you'll have for a long time and can wear in any situation. Since you probably don't have easy access to lots of good stores, I'd go for Brooks Brothers' Web site.

This is available in up to a 48 (you may be bigger), but is an example of something that might work for you. :

Pair that with a pair of medium-wash jeans (no gimmicks, please) and a nice white shirt and you're money. Interesting eyewear and a vintage military watch would add interest. I think the goal is to not draw attention to your middle. Alternatively you could wear a khaki cotton sports coat. at 40/32, you should pay attention to the pant/shoe interface. You don't want your pants to swallow your shoes...you might have to have a tailor taper your jeans an inch or so.

If you're bigger than any decent OTR sports coats, I'd seriously think in the future about going MTM or custom made.

Black is too obvious man. Try more blues, like this:

http://www.us.thomaspink.com/fcp/product/thomas%20pink/Shirts/Blue-and-Purple-Traveller-Manning-Stripe-Men's-Shirt---Button-Cuff/99913604

The Thomas Pink traveller collection might be good, because it has a good silhouette, isn't too form fitting, and resists wrinkles which can be helpful if you've got a lot of real estate. For me it fits baggy. I don't know if size 19 is enough?

I agree. A decent quality (no mall brands) thin striped shirt under a blazer would look great. (on anyone).
