If you're into fat chicks in yoga pants, and even fatter chicks in those fucking hideous, stupid jogging shorts with the trim that is there apparently for the sole purpose of perhaps drawing attention away from your 19 year old, but nonetheless disgusting and cellulite riddled legs and ass hanging out the back of them. JFC. Exactly.

And although some may consider @VictorSFreturn post as having gone too far… it's also pretty silly to keep providing tailing recommendations that ultimately result in a "lipstick on a pig" situation that would best just be avoided… regardless, as he said, it's up to you.
One guy's too fat… the other not fat enough! happy.gif

Had to check the Urban Dictionary for T&A - my only association was Turnbull & Asser but I knew that even on this forum no one would "cruise by the dorm" for that.

I am actually trying to lose weight at the moment, partly for health reasons but mostly to start wearing several pieces of tailored clothing that hang on my closet but look too tight, including three Canali suits, an Eidos jacket, and a green Camoshita suit I purchased after Tira posted it last spring.

Good to know. Always nice to set out with a tangible goal in mind. Don't hesitate to ask questions if they arise...

It just happens to be where the secluded tennis courts are. And I bought a T&A suit last year that did not quite fit as well because… surprise, I had let myself get out of shape. It's back to fitting well I'm happy to say.

I realize my previous comment was harsh, but the general level of what is considered "acceptable/appropriate/reasonable/a good idea" in varying situations to me is just astonishing… mind boggling actually and it would seem most could reach a consensus on a base level range of sensibility.

The biggest hurdle to overcome toward motivation and success in any challenge is mental … if your mind is strong, you will yourself be strong.

Ask Chris Christie if he gets elected.

I don't know if I'd call it harsh so much as rude and vaguely misogynistic, but hey, to each his own, right?

Not much vagueness to that misogyny.

Yesterday. A simple navy blazer for a casual look.

Navy blazers are super versatile. I need to rock mine more often.

Got a pink or even yellow shirt to wear with that?

Thanks. I do have only one very pale pink shirt. Over time I have replaced my shirt rotations to pale blue and white only. It's just simple and easy to go under a suit. And make dressing up in the morning much quicker.

These are interesting times, gentlemen. The discussion about body fat (albeit its rather misplaced offspring) has been quite interesting - thanks to all of you who contributed to it. 

 

Saw some ballet some time ago and dressed up befitting the occassion (at least that´s what i thouht it did):

Very clean look. I forgot you could do that (black jacket over a white vest/inner piece). At least, I don't recall seeing it done often.

Dennis Walter well-done Mr. Bond

In regard to body fat, I decided that John Stamos, Rob Lowe and Daniel Craig are muses for me.

So to compete, I must stay in the 14% bf range to look good. If any of you ever get the chance to take a hydrostatic bf measurement, jump on it. I get one twice a year.

I hate when all these fat assess tell me I'm not normal because my belly is not touching the floor.

I have been reading GQ and Esquire since I was 14 and later fell in love with Mens Health. And if more of our kids got into fashion and the physiology of their bodies, they wouldn't be fat. I'd rather teach my kids about fitness and Armani than Nike and a Happy meal.

You're from RF or SNG? (just wondering) smile.gif

Gents , no need to argue. Weight and body fat are all related to genetic factors. Be happy and eat well ; and don't worry about body fat and such. 12 months ago I had a full medical checkup, the only time I did that. My BMI kg/m2 18.8 , body fat was 8.6% and I eat everything. From kfc to pizza and I munch on chocolate almost every day.
What I am trying to say is just be yourself and be happy about it.
Edit - found the report it also states total cholesterol mmol/l 4.15 , HDL cholesterol 1.41 and total/ HDL cholesterol ratio 2.9 . Even with that much of junk food.

@victor. ZA but I love shopping in your neck of the woods as often as I can
