    Was going to get some FullCount denimz but now I don't know.
    Charly teach me your wardrobe ways.
    I do like the drapey flowy, not sure I can get away with it at work (though I don't have to tuck in shirts as long as I'm not too sloppy looking)

    Same Day Doctor is good, offices in most major cities - I had a HIV test in Manchester last year, £140, more relaxed than a NHS GPs office and you can book by email.

    Is your office tshirt-friendly or are collared shirts a must?

    If it's the latter, then the whole drapey look isn't going to do very well as collared shirts don't really look "drapey" on guys with any sort of heft or muscularity. Looks good on skinnier guys, but with guys like us, shirts just look oversized (in a bad way).

    I'm not a big fan of super drapey really. I don't feel that extreme drape works well on bigger guys. Which is why all my tees regular ass AAA tees. You can try out something a bit more flowy if you want. I suggest looking at some Silent pieces in the biggest size possible. I would suggest steering clear of RO tees/tanks. They're going to be way too tight and look ridiculous.

    But I like tops and jackets with some added length to the body to lengthen my silhouette and to help ward away from the whole stubby look.

    If you're going for that look. You'll want to look into grabbing a RO jacket you like.. in XXL (54). I don't think any other brand would fit you tbh, since I can't fit into anything else in that aesthetic range besides RO in an XL.

    I would also suggest searching for a pair of boots you like that you can tuck with. You don't have to tuck all the time, but it's nice to switch it up when you get bored of the same lines day in and day out. Get something with a thicker sole like my Ann D's. Rick side zips are readily available to purchase and would work well also. Very versatile too.

    Also, a pair of pants with a lower crotch and a bit looser for more variation in your wardrobe.

    Unlike the pants you just got from me (which I basically gave away :p ), the rest of your wardrobe might cost a "bit" more if you choose to go that route.

    Don't think I can go full-on drape in the wardrobe, but the drapey look is cool.
    For instance, getting a MTM shirt made right now (oxford), as long as I get some regular khakis that fit, that'd be a good tuck in shirt.

    Oh.. then just get some shirts that fit you better, and you're pretty much there for office wear.

    Since we be talking fashions. I been shopping for pants for work, since I now work at an office. What do you guys think of these? They are all 33 x 34, the first one is more of a dress fabric and I'm getting way more pocket flair on those,maybe I should size up one more? It's pretty weird buying size Small shirts yet size 33-34 pants.. but that's just how my body is due to olympic lifting. My upper body is def catching up though now that I'm training it.

    Yeah pocket flare is hard to avoid. I don't know if there's a way to avoid it unless you get some pants with pockets at a slant, maybe..or more of a 5 pocket pant.
    Sizing up may work, but if you cinch down w/ the belt, there will be issues with it anyways..

    Not sure...I'm in the same boat as you can tell

    Maybe epaulet would work for you, though?

    I actually thought of only wearing five pocket chinos from now on. If they have pockets like a jean then there would be no pocket flair. Thing is I don't know of many and the chinos pictured were $19... cant beat that.

    Also a five pocket chino plays way better into my style. I feel like I'm 50 wearing chinos pictured

    Those dont look bad (age-wise), but yeah, pocket flare. I can't think of a single pair of pants w/ pockets like that that don't pocket flare. Even my waist 36 chinos do that (Uniqlo) and the fall off me if I don't wear a belt.

    I'm hoping once my body recomposition is done my hips wont be so big.
