    This thread has been so bad lately I don't even feel self concious about posting these shitty photobooth pictures of a lame boring outfit and my horrendously messy room. Enjoy assholes. [​IMG]

    Did my second fitting today, just wondering if you guys have any comments. First pic is before I messed with buttoning point, second is after I told them to lower it 1cm. I'm going with the shorter sleeve and shorter trouser leg, will have 2" cuffs as well (also have a second pair with no cuffs). Still just the second fitting so it's far from finished, and obviously trousers look like shit because they're not pressed. Looking at the pics on my computer, I'm thinking I might go with a little more waist suppression. [​IMG][​IMG] I'd add the actual fit pic of me drinking makkoli with the guys there but the pics didn't turn out too well [​IMG]

    One last remark for Mr Moo-

    Don't feel bad about your weight. If you look back, I never insulted you for it, because I know how you feel. I was fat back in high school and I was fucking miserable. I stepped it up and poured my whole life into losing weight and becoming normal. I joined the cross-country team, ran every single day, and burned through about 60lbs within one year. If you really did lose 25lbs in 1/2 a year, good job; if not, then don't lie to yourself and try harder.

    Now as for what you should wear, because I feel like I didn't offer very good criticism since I had to split for an exam. First of all, back to the sweater- just like you said, it's form fitting. Which in your case, is not desirable. I'm not being an asshole saying this, but it's like you trying to wear a muscle tee. It ain't going to look good. I mean not only that, I can't really stand the color or the fabric of the hoodie, it just looks dumb.

    A man of your proportion should wear something that will complement your form better, like a sport coat. Rarely do I ever see bigger-sized guys like yourself walking around wearing a skin-tight hoodie, because it doesn't do anything for them. You're just falling into an SF trend which, inconveniently, was fabricated by and for people who weigh 90-140lbs.
    If you find a decent, well-fitted sport coat to wear over that shirt, with the same jeans, you will look 500% better. Keep the sneakers, they aren't terrible, but again I'd go with something a bit more modest, like a pair of wingtips.

    Think about the people who are your own weight... stock brokers, wall street kind of people, CEO's, etc. Would you see them walking around manhattan wearing a form fitting, ugly ass hoodie? No, they're wearing a suit. If not that, a nice jacket that doesn't accentuate your weight. Like literally, with that hoodie it looks like the "color blocks" are exploding out of their stitches while you're wearing it. Look at the seams around your shoulders, that's why one of the first responses was that the shoulders were so tight.

    You went 200 -> 160 in 6 months? That's ridiculous.

    Aeglus's fat ass picture exemplifies my point. Sport coats are FTW for bigger-sized people. I can barely even tell he weighs 200lbs in that photo.

    Not sure about his facial expression though. Trying to be tough? looks more like you accidentally crapped yourself right before the photo was shot lol

    How so? That's around 1-2 lbs per week which is perfectly healthy.
