    Comeonyouspurs, you may want to wait to drop money on N&F or APC until you've got your weight where you want it and at a stable place. If you like the Unbrandeds that you are wearing now, why not get another pair of these since they are cheap and can be found on sale at Urban Outfitters. By the way, Unbranded is a branch of N&F. If you can't try the tapered Unbranded on in a store, measure you waist and thighs, and compare to the measurements on Blue Owl's website. You'll find the link on the top right of this page. Gap's raw denim is another cheap alternative to hold you over until you get to your goal weight. I'm not trying to discourage you from better denim but just don't want you to waste money on something that may not fit you in a few months.

    Well, congratulations are definitely in order for making a change - it's always hard to take a first step. I'd keep those potato sacks around for a bit for motivation, and definitely hold off on purchasing until you're happy with your body. Shirts can always be tailored, cheap pants can always be found. There's no reason not to take advantage of that stuff while you're dropping weight. Speaking of weight, lifting weights is really going to help you out - and you don't need to do much. This page is posted around here a lot as a general starter guide, and if you hang out in the health + body subforum there are a lot of other users who will be able to give you good advice: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?p=401681611#post401681611 In my experience, clothing really can't cover you up if you feel uncomfortable in your own body. You seem to be confident and happy with what you've accomplished so far, which is a very good thing - but the feeling of taking your clothes off, looking at yourself, and thinking "ugh" is definitely a bad one (I'm not saying you should feel this way now, just that it's something you can overcome). This is pretty much a tangent now, but get the body you want, whatever it may be - rugby player, footy player, linebacker, whatever - and then buy clothes that fit it. And just so you don't get worried before you start, this forum is really geared much more towards fit guys wearing slim clothing than rail-thin models wearing runway gear. We have both, but you'll definitely have plenty of resources if you're the former.

    I'd advise spending the extra minute to do a self timer shot. Not sure if this has been addressed previously or not, but this photo makes you look dwarven. Doesn't help that you're covering half your face, and neck with arms that look very disproportionate. Again, probably just the mirror/angle, but I'd re-do.

    Desi, that fit is excellent. I think (and I may draw some ire for this) that it'd look great with a pair of elaborate sandals. But maybe not, who knows.

    CWRU, your jacket fits well but everything else must be replaced ASAP.

    I would roll up the shorts a little. I found that it helps a lot if the short fits a little big. Not a big fan of driver mocs but those are ok. Still some penny loafers would did it good.

    I usually roll the shorts, but it doesn't work with these. Hopefully I'll be able to find a tailor that isn't too resistant to slim fit
    Pennies are still in my "to buy" list.
    Thanks for the advice

    lol I have the shirt in blue, have it tailored. It clashes with the jeans, which are extremely traditional looking. White pants are your only option.
