    The standard forum defence is " I have an athletic build" - can mean anybloodything.

    Aside from putting on weight the parameters of body shape are, except for minor variations at the edges,mainly pre determined by bone structure and genetics.
    All the gym work, steroids and wishing and hoping wont make you into Arnie S if the basics aren't already in place.

    I remember Warren Buffett once quipped that it depends on the size of your clavicle, hence he gave up bodybuilding. I think it is in the book Snowball.

    Gym work is often relevant when it comes to fit, though. People (myself included for a while) tended to think I had broad shoulders, but in fact all the 'doorway' width of my shoulders is largely deltoid mass, and the actual shoulder measurement of my skeleton is relatively narrow for my chest size. Hence most of my jacket fit problems, as you want the shoulder seam to be around the pivot point of your shoulder joint, or at least I do for the sort of fit and shoulder treatments I like. Which means the OTR jackets that have that are generally too small in the chest and and/or don't have enough sleeve-head volume to accommodate the deltoids. So while the shoulder measurement that matters doesn't change with gym work, the consequences for fit can be significant.

    Does anyone here watch Suits?

    Besides the exceptional cast, Harvey Specter's Tom Ford suits are amazing! His choice of shirts and ties may not have flare but that's easily offset by his character.

    Anyone have any 'Must do' suggestions for me in NY, LA, SF or Vegas for me? I'm pretty sure I have shopping covered, but any must do dining experiences other than Daniel?

    Yeah - maybe. Personally, I have reached my goal weight, but not yet my goal height.

    "God made me small, surgery made me tall"

    The linked article (from the SMH) tells the bizarre story of a Qld politician who went to Siberia to have her legs lengthened.

    Theres this mind boggling trade in surgery in asia/china/taiwan of actually lengthening peoples legs. Mainly women who get it done.
