Which fit would I be suited in for shirts? Slim fit or Regular?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've recently lost weight. My highest years ago was 367 lbs. I'm about 334 lbs. right now. I've lost 33 lbs. altogether. My neck size went from 19.5" to 18" and sleeve length from 35" to 34". My chest is now 54" (was 60"), waist 58" (was 60"). Which type of dress shirts would fit better for my size. Slim fit dress shirts or old-fashioned regular fit dress shirts? And please tell me why? Thanks smile.gif

I think that at 334, you would have to be slim fit.

not sure if serious

Also, not sure if serious....

 

either way, 33 lbs might should a lot but its actually just 9% of your weight. At that weight, you can lose a lot of weight by just cutting out on junk, portion sizes, or unhealthy foods.  You can obviously lose more by light cardio or weights but intially your diet is more important because that is what got you in trouble the first time.  If your serious and assuming you are physically fit to do exercise (i.e no injuries, etc.), you can do a lot better but you gotta push yourself.  Make a goal and after that goal is meet, then buy new clothes.  Do not do it now, because you want to lose more weight and reward yourself with better fitting clothes in the future.  Don't get comfortable with where you are now but instead push yourself further.

 

 

Either that or I just been trolled..

im 5ft 11 , 185lb, very athletic and i still err on the option of slim fit. To me slim fit is for those who are in the sub 10% body fat, or are just generally tall and skinny. 

 

However, more power to you for trying it !

From your measurements your waist size is larger than your chest size. Since Slim fit shirts tend to be more tapered and have a narrow waist, I think regular fit would be better for you.

In addition, from your measurements your arm length is shorter than standard, given your neck size. That means you are unlikely to find an OTR shirt that fits perfectly.

Some that fit.

Rather than try to categorise yourself as as some flattering descriptor, go and try some and accept the result.

Find out what relevant celebrities with your body shape wear, and emulate them as closely as possible.

Depends on height and muscle mass?
