Hey, I'm arh428. Started caring about fashion/losing weight almost exactly one year ago. Stopped drinking soda, started lifting/ running, stopped eating sweets, cut back on fats, etc. dropped down from 210 to 165 where I am now. I'm 6'1", so I still need to get in better shape. I would actually like to gain some weight in the form of muscle and lose some of my remaining fat along the way. I went from not being able to do a push-up to repping 110, so while I am a lot stronger, I still don't have a ton of muscle/ strength. same situation with running. But that's what summer is for! As for fashion, I was the standard XL graphic T with cargos or light baggy jeans topped off with puffy skate shoes. I chose to get clothes for my high school graduation gift after doing a ton of research and joining MFA. Bought some 514s, some target button downs, some dockers chinos, etc. the style was decent, but the fit wasn't quite right. As I lost more weight, the clothes fit even worse. I was down to a 34 inch waist from a 38 in some clothes by Christmas, so I had to get some more clothes to replace the unfitting clothes. This was a lot better style wise. Got some dark 508's, henleys, some fitted OCBD, etc. unfortunately (and also fortunately) I've lost an additional 29 pounds since Christmas, so a lot of this clothes doesn't fit either. Since I don't have a ton of money, I've relied heavily on target, jcp, thrifting, etc. but I've been able to experiment a lot and I think my style is pretty decent right now. I'm at the point on MFA where I give a lot more advice than I receive, which is an awesome feeling. But I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn. Just joined style forum after seeing it mentioned so much. Not quite familiar with the format yet, but I hope to learn a lot.
