College Kid Trying to Up His Wardrobe Game

Hey guys, sophomore college student checking in. I've always carried an interest in fine clothing (especially ties) but up until recently my size has prevented me from exploring such options (over the last year I have dropped from 360+ pounds to 241 as of today). I'm still a big guy, but I can finally wear nice clothing.

Picked up a slim fitting (compared to the rest of my wardrobe) Tommy Hilfiger shirt today. Tell me, is it too slim fitting for my build? It's a little tight around the chest, which is my primary concern. Don't want to look like a doofus, even in the very non-fashion oriented campus I live on.

Shirt looks a bit tight but who cares.

Keep losing weight.
Thanks, and definitely. Looking to drop around 60 more lbs and have a stocky but well toned and muscular frame. I'm blessed with a ton of muscle mass as a result of being obese, so I'd like to flaunt it.

Lose some more weight - a good start but more needs to go. Don't build your wardrobe around the tie - ties are merely accessories.
