130lbs and 6 foot is not unhealthy? That is even worse than eastern skinny standard

130 and 6' isn't unhealthy, in fact, it is on the skinny side of average.  You all have to remember that I'm 20 and its very common for people to not gain weight until they are older.  I've been to several doctors to see how I can gain weight and see if this is a problem and they all pull out the charts and say not to worry, "I'm on the thin side of average for a 20 year old 6' tall boy."

 

Now getting back to the fits.  cheers.gif

The suit will actually be going back for some alterations; sleeves and waist are both a bit trim for my taste. It's a much leaner fit overall--a little too much, honestly. I was aiming for something slightly less full than the sport coat pictured. I love the sc fit but thought this dressier suit would benefit from a cleaner chest, though not quite as clean as it is currently.

Agreed, I like the sport coat more than the suit. The suit is too trim for my taste,both in waist and sleeves. Nipped waist of the suit is almost making the lapels bow, I am assuming this is custom?

Suit is; sport coat is OTR from 2006.

FWIW, the SC below approximates the happy medium I was hoping to achieve with the suit.

I think his head is also too small, which makes the body of the suit appears to be large.

i was 135lbs and 5'11" when i started college
by the time i graduated, i grew to 185lbs and 6'1"

i don't have a super small head like tau does
but i did look very very skinny (like ribs showing skinny)
so give him a break
when he stops cycling competitively, he might fill out a bit
although his small head will always make his suits look out of proportion

This one is by far one of my favorites of yours.

I just wonder what the guy your dog is looking at is wearing. What has been seen cannot be unseen.

Acrid, your dog is the perfect meme candidate with that face. I know you can.

Tau, just do P90X.  Several times.  Then do P90X 2, also several times.

 

Problem solved.

 

Seriously, 3 months of P90X for me resulted in washboard abs and 1.5 additional inches around my chest.  The Plyo routine also won't hurt, seeing as how you are a cyclist. 

 

I compassionate thee, my fellow skinny fellow.

What the?

Dig, those were some seriously acrid sheep.

Can we leave TKE alone? Given what he's posted, the declarative statements about his body, head, and health are just speculative and ridiculous.
