I didn't know bodybuilding was the only sport that hypertrophy was associated with I used to have similar specs to OP. Call me fat or whatever, I was about 10-11% bodyfat at the time and am playing college football, so thats fine with me.. Wings and Horns, BoO, all fit me well with their XL sizes. So just find measurements that work for you and compare them with future clothing purchases. Also, trying on clothes is pretty important.

I wouldnt want any girl that is built like me. Skinny and tall with a flat chest and ass? No thanks. If she was the same size as me but had tits as big as an "averagely big" guy, I would consider it, then again skinnier would be better. Say 180~190cm but 60~65Kg would be good. Also, to stop derailing the OP's thread. Most of the stuff guys here should fit. Straight leg or retro cut jeans, where as I am swimming in something as loose as a pair of APC New Standard or Rescues, they would probably look good on you. Im not sure what brand everyone is creaming their jeans over ATM, but something that cut would be a good place to start pant wise.

If you're really a 42 the M you're wearing is vanity sized or you have a pretty interesting build. I'm talking in terms of general designer sizes. If we're talking about J. Crew or whatever then yeah, it's different. Perhaps my understanding about larger sizes is off but at least isn't a 38 generally a size M? And Japanese sizes, I'm a 36 chest, 30 waist, mostly size L haha

Thanks for the mature responses from the rest of you guys. Appreciate it. Call me fat if you will fellas, my girlfriend loves it

So, I did some reading on Michael Bastian (after having bought one of his Gant shirts and loved it) and really respect that he designs clothes for the average build. I guess we can stop at this point and just say I'm not a high-fashion style guy. I like classic stuff. Classic cuts. I like to look like a guy, you know? I like Michael Bastian's philosophy when it comes to this notion. Are there other designers and brands that share this same philosophy?

I think the best look is one that doesn't look like it was forced. Effortless. Jeans that fit not too tight, not too baggy. Tappered shirts, but ones you can fold your arms in. Well tailored simple suits.

Anyone else out there share the same tastes as me, but way more ahead of the game than myself who can shed some light?

I'm a 42 and wear medium in Jcrew too. Fat twinsies! Excellent thread btw. I'm always up for a rousing discussion of classic, timeless, masculine fashion. Additionally, I find that Depends really help me fill out my gap chinos - fear not, those for whom the classic cut is too classic! There is hope in adult diaper-wear!

I'm not sure why John bothers here. Most of his posts seem to inaccurately pool together everyone who doesn't wear a 36-waist jean as being "girly" in stature.

35" hips, 32-33" pants size @ 5'9 - probably 34 there as that's the leanest i've been in awhile



not walking around no

The Ronnie Coleman thing was hyperbole. You have a wicked dead, look pretty lean, and wear a 32-34 tts. That seems right in line with what I was saying, even for somebody who works out...

I'm not gonna say I'm in perfect shape, but I have a 34in. waist (also 5'6 and 160lbs) yet I wear size 36/S in pretty much all tops, and I have no stomach. Fuck, I recently just slid into an XS Cavalli T-shirt, and I don't quite think his stuff is vanity-sized.

IMHO, your health plays a part in your waist size, but not as much as your genetics. I come from a shitty line of short Latvian peasant slaves, and what I mean by that is that my whole family has big waist lines, but none of us are fat.
