    Um, are you implying I suck in my gut? I don't have a gut...I am a fricken cross country runner

    sigh...people should watch what they post.

    No, I'm not implying that you have a gut as I can see you're quite fit, but it looks like you blow up your chest as a result of the camera positioning. Have you tried a pair of BB Milanos? I have some larger than average thighs as well and I received some of them today; they fit perfectly.

    Apologies...I am somewhat sensitive, I admit, to that because I lost 90 pounds over 7 years ago. It was pretty hard :( I would never want to go back. Unfortunately (or fortunately ?) my chest is kind of blown up in comparison to the rest of my body. I have tried BB milanos. I usually need to size up in them and not all have an alterable waist. These do so if I have t o size up i can have them tailored. Thanks for the comment though.

    And, I don't think you are a wanker, but thanks for sticking up for me stirling. you two can take that up haha

    I think he was replying more to your posture than your physique. Although admittedly the cross-country runners I know are emaciated.

    I know that feel, bro, I lost some weight some years ago as well, it's a full time job not going back. I also have the same problem as you with regards to the chest after years of lifting iron, which makes it nearly impossible to findt jackets which fits.
    It all depends on how you want the fit, but I agree with acecow. I would also take a look at J. Crews Bowery after seeing Spoo's post.
    I don't think I'm a wanker either, but can't please everyone I guess.

    Hope I didn't fuck up the pictures during editing...my desktop colour settings are far from standard, so hopefully the pictures don't look too shitty. The pants are midnight blue, probably look black in the pictures though.

    Jacket looks like a suit piece. And I don't like its shoulders. More open quarters would be nice. Also, pants that are slimmer in the thighs would work for you better.
    Over all, not bad, but could use some work to become better.

    haha.

    Your inability to admit that things outside of your narrow palette can ever look good is a good indicator of someone who's never gonna look good themselves.
    Tell me, do you ever think, say girls look good in girls' clothing? Or should they also wear your clothes?

    But anyway, continue accepting positive comments and ignoring the negative ones. That way it means you know that you're never doing anything wrong! you always look great! :fonz:

    Dude, the same could surely apply to you and your inability to accept "fun" pants as part of a man's wardrobe. I like criticism in terms of fit or certain items that may seem off to others, but I disregard statements like "blah blah blah, you have to be Johnny Depp to wear those pants". That's retarded. You don't know me. You have no idea how I carry myself and whether I can pull them off in real life or no.

    ummmmm. Note how I didn't say that those pants can never work. Also note that you look bad in that picture.
