    :dunno:

    I like the way I look in certain clothes, and frankly I can't go to any "normal" store because the clothes won't fit. My shoulders are too broad and my waist is too small, so if I wear a normal (untailored) button down shirt the underarms are way too big. They are made for fat people, as are suits. So, I went down to get some clothes at a new mens shop that just opened up. they sell mostly designer clothing. I bought 3 shirts and 2 pair of pants. Price doesnt' make the clothes any better so I won't tell you how much they were.

    This place also has full body stuff for men, and men only. Its great, and they have the hottest women working there :drool:

    You've just made a great point that I've just recently figured out. Though I'm not nearly as large as you, I'm very long in the legs and arms and very short in the torso. That said, one looks best when clothes fit perfect, no matter the cost. Establishing a relationship with your tailor allows you to have clothing that fits properly; because of that, you'll feel good about the clothes.

    But you know that already, don't you filmy? ;)

    I don't have a tailor per se. If I get a suit from Boss they have a tailor there and its usually a different person :sad2:

    This new place however is hiring a tailor on spot all the time, so that will be good.

    Maybe some of your friends are just jealous. Me personally, I have all of my uniforms tailored to my EXACT specifications, if it is too loose in one area, they fix it. I do the same with all of my suits, pants, etc.

    I personally like looking decent, and that includes clothing...

    But then again some people spend a lot of money and it looks tacky. Armani suits are a very good example. I don't know who they fit well, I've never seen anybody wear one and it fits them "good." But, you don't seem tacky. :)

    ;) I try not to be tacky. I buy suits that fit. I don't care if they are 200.00 or 20000.00 if it fits right and looks good I'll wear it. However I've come across some 1000.00 suits that are just made horribly.
