I posted this picture many times before, but it helps with my text. 220 lbs and about 145 lbs respectively:

Clothes fit you better when you work on your physique. The best investment you can make is on yourself, not on the clothes you put on.

Michael Kors - Neiman Marcus Men Sale

 

 


I tried looking on NE site but didn't find it. The tag is $195.  Just ask the SA and they can pull your size. It's a 3 in 1 jacket.

Damn Wis, good stuff. smokin.gif That should motivate people to never give up on losing weight. I think my peak weight was 195 then I got down to 145 ish too and now I'm settled at 155-160.

all of this. Diego made some good points too.

had an interview friday, wore this. pants kinda rinkled but whatevea

This appears like a pricing error but J.Crew has these black shell cordovan Alden's for only $480.

Nice Arenas/ fit on the last page

For a different shirt than express I'd try J Crew or BB

γιατί όχι

I have a bunch of JCrew "Urban slim fit" pants, but the leg is a little too loose for me.
Are these pants worth taking to a tailor to get tapered or should I just move on?

Also, anyone have these from Bonobos? OR recommend something similar (not looking for skinny, more like slim with tapered leg) Thanks

A lot of pants look good with a taper (slimmer towards the bottom). You could request that if you like that style more than a straight-leg fit.

Ok thanks guys, now next question is how the heck to find a decent tailor. Closest large city (Philly) is over an hour away, seems like all local tailors are at dry cleaners and no reviews online. Is this a red flag? Anyway to gauge whether a tailor is competent or not? Don't really have anyone to go to for recommendations unfortunately (sorry for all of the questions)

This might not be the best thing to do but I'd call around for prices if there's no real reviews and if its reasonable then maybe get shirt or some pants you don't really wear much or maybe thrift a pair for like 4$ then take it to the tailor and get an idea of their work...like if it fits properly and they can understand what you need/want on a sample clothes item

Just got a pair of the stone slim straight Bonobos the other day. They fit pretty nicely, I'd say comparable to the Urban Slim Fit but a little bit slimmer. Before you buy from Bonobos check eBay. I got a pair for $35.

I have two pairs of Bonobos slim straight chinos (one pair in bright green bc of a sale laugh.gif) and this fit is just about right for me. The leg opening does seem a decent amount smaller than the urban slim fit from jcrew

Do you happen to have any Dockers Alpha Khakis by any chance? If so, can you compare? Looks like pairs can be had for about $40 with the current sale. Thanks

Not sure who had brought it up before... but I passed by an H&M today and they had a few grey blazers on display. They were $25 I believe
