Fat guy clothing (14)

1 Name: Anonymous Stylist : 2008-04-21 05:32 ID:RcR0i74F

Alright, so look. I'm a fat guy. As in 5x shirt, 62 waist. I find it hard to find clothing for myself that's not a t-shirt or jeans, and I'm really trying hard to -not- wear so many blatantly casual, thrown-together things. Are there any recommendations for what I should look for or try out in terms of clothing that straddles the border between casual and formal that would look good on a man with a very wide waist? Because most men's fashion, from what I've seen, doesn't translate well when its like you've got tires round your body.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Well the best advice is to lose some weight. If you're that big it's not healthy, irregardless of any fashion issues.

Having said that, probably the best advice would be to try to get some regular trousers rather than wearing jeans. I'm not sure, but I think that for larger people if you dont get flat-fronted trousers, get ones with pleats (that kinda fold thing) at the waist. I remember hearing that that was good for somebody with quite a large waist, because then it doesnt look quite so much like the fabric is being stretched by the persons size. I've not looked into this myself so you probably want to try on a fwe different pairs.

Also, try a pair of "proper" shoes e.g. not sneakers. They don't have to be ultra-formal (like what you'd wear with a suit) but some well looked after leather shoes make a good impression. I'm not sure whether to suggest trying to find button-up shirts to go with the trousers or stick to t shirts.

If you can't find clothes that fit perfectly the way you want, you could try getting ones that are almost how you want them and then taking them to a tailor to have them adjusted (e.g. sleeves might be too baggy while the shoulders actually fit perfectly etc etc)

well as a health consultant i would say that you wont feel any different until you lose the weight. i know its hard but if you find a good nutrition plan and you stick to it and with support you should be able to lose the weight.

but most clothes in the world arent geared towards overweight people. after a while all thats left are sweat pants. i would recommend doing custom made clothing if you can afford it or research a nutrition plan thats good for you and will get you the results you want.

Hey I have luck for my son at bigmen.com and J.C. Pennys online. He is a 4 x and I can always find him nice looking clothes. Hope this helps. Good luck. Peace and happiness.

Short-sleeved, buttoned shirts without shirttails--that is, shirts not designed to be tucked in--such as bowling-shirt styles, or guayabera styles, or a wide range of others, tend to look alright on big people. You will, of course, have to shop around to find really big ones. But they exist.

I am a similar size to you, I would recommend the more formal clothes, I pay a lot of money to get suits made by a tailor who is a large guy himself and who knows what I need, generally a more formal look in darker colours pays dividends. Shirts should be loose, and in stripes. I always tend to dress formally, in England where I live, that is not a bad thing anyway and many clubs I belong too require that dress code, in the states I am on vacation but I find that casual male big and tall has good stuff, again I would aim for properly constructed shirts with button down collars and more formal looking pants. At the end of the day if you;re big you're big, so you have to not mind looking big. And try and earn a lot of money, I do and it really helps.

My tailor is chand hira, www.hiras.com, they have reasonable prices and make excellent formal shirts to order

Suits look awesome on guys no matter how heavy, scrawny, or muscular they are. There's many a girl who has a fetish for a well-pressed button-up shirt and tie.
