I am an ex-college football player and have been having a really hard time lately finding clothing both for work (I'm an accountant) and going out. Â I'm not an obese individual, I'm 6'0" and weigh about 240. Â My problem is that I have a 38" waist but I also have 33" thighs and very broad shoulders and big arms. Â This causes many problems for me: 1) All pre-fabricated clothes are too long. Â The general consensus seems to be that any muscular individual must also be 7 feet tall. 2) I can't find pants that fit around my legs without bumping up to a size 40 or 42 pants (I even tried on a Hugo Boss pair of 42's a while ago and they were too small in the thighs) and then I've got on huge pants that need to be tailored. 3) Shirts don't fit properly. Â They seem to be box-shaped, not tapered like the human body, so I have a lot of extra material I have to tuck in and it looks sloppy. Â Also, about half the shirts and sportcoats I try on are too tight in the sleeves. I would appreciate any advice on some styles or designers that have more athletically cut clothing. Â I'm really not a fan of buying nice clothing and then spending the extra cash to have it tailored to fit me correctly.
