    Clothes that fit??


    Now that Ive been cutting for many months, Ive reduced my bodyfat% from 240lbs @ ~17 - 18% down to 222lbs @ about 10.5%. Thing is, now all my clothes dont fit right.

    I like to wear fitted T-shirts, and most of them are XL. When I had a good bit of chunk on me and a wide abdomen, everything fit just right. Now - they're still all snug around my arms and chest, but hang off me like a damn tent from the lower pecs down. A size L shirt looks like I stole it off a little kid

    Where do you guys buy your clothes? Anyone make shirts with a V-taper?

    Thanks,
    BV

    You can buy those underarmor stretch types that everyone seems to be getting but personally I like the fit on the upper body and hangs every where else look. tight clothes irritate the hell out of me.

    Im not a big fan of really tight clothes on others, but I found for helping with larger backs is shirts made with stretch cotton. It has spandex in it I believe and it definatly helps. Regular cotton shirts are usually very tight on my upper portion of my back and I am uncomfortable sitting in them or moving at all. Other than that you can always try shopping at places like express for men or something like that, most shirts are supposed to be more of a fitted look. Not sure what your style is, so i dont know what to offer.

    Ah, thanks for the tips...I dont like really tight shirts either but these Gap shirts I have are all tight on top and really loose at the bottom. I hate that

    Go to Kauffmans and buy up some Rocawear or Enyce shirts. I buy the XXL and XXXL for like 15-30 bucks a pop..sometimes cheaper since noone ever buys those larger sizes, they'll go on clearance. Not sure if that's your style or not, but I had to make it mine because I can cut, bulk, whatever and not have to worry about buying new clothes...lol. the only thing that kinda sucks about those shirts is that when you have to buy the bigger sizes, the shirt will be so damn long, that it will look like a night gown on a shorter guy. So what I do is just hem the bottom and it looks a lot better....either that or just tuck it in.
