    For a man your age, you have maintained a very slender figure. I really think you might want to explore getting that shirt tailored to highlight how well you've taken care of yourself. The shirt looks too big on you, very billowy in the waist and arms. Just a little tailoring would look excellent on you.

    good call. i can only speak for myself, but this is how i've been taught a shirt should look like. i endorse to keep it as is, when you can have a fit like this from the rack. everything is flowing, everything is balanced...

    No, I think I just assumed from the constant college references that he was a grad student..

    This has been a hoot! :D

    Irate Customer, you are very kind. I work out three times a week (TRX/kettlebell, CrossFit) ; I'll be running in a marathon in the fall. I'm trying!
    Liam, I am old enough to be your father.
    Fritzl, I agree with you--even though this is a BB "slim fit" shirt--that is the traditional look.

    Not the best pic but tried to get the most natural angle I could in the mirror. Out for a nice night with friends. Shirt is linen/cotton and slubby hence the wrinkles

    *Citan makes appointment with tailor to discuss the price and possibility of having the waist of his belt let out*

    Interesting shoes. Did you make them naturally edged yourself?

    Shades so big they have crossed the line into cartoonish.

    Shirt so small the buttons are fighting for their lives.
