I am in mid 40s. I'm getting into dressing more dapper. Problem I have is that I'm short and fat (5'6", 250 lbs.). My suits are made to measure. Anyhow, I wear a size XXL t-shirt. I go to Saks and see a beautiful Armani black t-shirt. XXL in Armani is much smaller than a US XXL. Same with Versace, even Robert Graham shirts. How does a short, fat, bald guy find beautiful clothes to wear to attract the ladies?

Assuming this is a legit request, the answer is, you can't.
Use the new clothes money on a nutritionist and a fitness plan.
Someday down the road, buddha willing, you'll be able to buy off the rack and the world's your oyster...

I do exercise, i honestly do. I've had a slow metabolism my entire life and have always been heavy. In the meantime, however, I'd like to look nice. I enjoy fine things. I like the way a quality cotton shirt feels, for example, or a nice dress shirt with a niece texture. The same lady who makes my suits makes my dress shirts, so I'm good there. But I see nice things in stores that I'd like to have. Some brands I can buy, like Robert Barakett. I've noticed the nicer Italian brands the sizes are smaller than the US counterparts.

And how did you know I was Buddhist?

Try the Ketogenic diet its the simplest way to knock down weight and really have to re-buy your entire wardrobe... Luckily I started after I lost weight at around 240ish and got done to about 200ish. I just found a passion for menswear in my earlier 30's 33ish and that's what sparked my journey to lose the weight...Best of luck man.

George Costanza almost bagged Marissa Tomei. Hang in there.
Oh, I've pulled some quality tail in my day, it just gets a bit more challenging as one gets older, that's all. Either way, I have money, and I like to spend it on quality stuff. It's just tough when one is rotund and pear-shaped.

Well good for you for bagging that tail bro!

your troubles and worries are misplaced, however.

Statistically, you’ll likely meet death soon at the rate you’re going. No sense worrying about clothes then.

You keep talking sh*t to me, you'll likely meet death soon as well.

By the way, don’t be discouraged.
Armani t-shirts are meant to be worn tighter fitting by bald, short and fat middle aged men.

Chicks love! God I can’t wait for the Viagra Triangle to come back to life.

I have Fogg homo on ignore. He’s probably trying to continue talking smack. Must suck living in his mom’s basement.
