    How To Best Show Off That Muscle

    Please forgive me in advance as I am sure my question will sound kind of lame to some. But I want to know where you guys buy your best fitting clothes? I have been a fat fuk until recently. I have lost about 45 pounds and build some decent muscle (with lots more on the way - into my 1st cycle now). I am going on a cruise in May - and I want to look my best! What clothes do you guys recommend to best show off those guns (or other body parts we work so hard on)?

    Depends on your dress style, what kind of stuff would you normally dress in? Or was it a matter of you dressed for convenience, for like what fitted you etc, not specifically style.

    I love A&F although I hate as you go up in shirt sizes the waist gets bigger and the shirts shorter.... I'm tall and they push it as is.

    Differs to be honest, im unfortunatly all about brands, but i just wear casual stuff, jeans, diesel, a&f, hugo boss, armani, tops from various shops. Its probably quite similar to the US.

    When it comes to looking smart i spend TOO much. Versace, armani etc etc all the way.

    Ahhh, that reminds me I have a few armani tee's I actually like them better than A&F now that I think about it, the problem with them is that I only like a few of their shirts at a time considering the extreme look they usually have.

    Do you know if the tshirts fit well around the arms neck shoulders, i almost cant find a shirt that i dont need to stretch out before wearing.
    Went into a size large permantly last year and almost every shirt i find is tight up top but anything larger in size is like wearing a bag over my head.

    They fit great, you can buy them fitted. It depends on what ones you go for as they do alot of different styles. I would recommend them though, i buy nearly all my shirts and ties from them. Great quality

    I wear jeans, all kinds of shirts really just go into burdines and look at guess and look at their rack at the back where they have a bunch of clothes hanging, usually not folded. You can find pretty decent stuff in there.
    Basic muscle ts work fine. polo ralph lauren, calvin klein etc.
    Wear jeans that are loose fitted so they can expand to your legs.
    muscle shirts and shirts:Osklen has good ones. (fine clothing store from rio de janeiro, brazil).

    polo has their polos (polo shirts) that are called custom fit and those fit awsome i love them their real good fit to ur chest and arms but they also dont show ur fvcking stomach like A&F etc. but their high in price though but well worth it IMO i would check those out at ur local foleys or dillards etc. good stuff

    I found out a simple fact after tren (fina) and test, you can wear a v neck t-shirt with anything and get away with it. I have been asked by countless cashers. Do you work out?


    and I agree polo and don't Neglect

    dont wear the elastic super super tight muslce shirts, that looks lame and laughable. Wear something decent tight that doesnt show off too much muslce but makes them think. I like long sleeve shirts that fit tight and dont have too much fabric so you can see the ripples on the back and shoulders.

    i wear diesel,armani exchange,j.lindeberg and all that shlt but its almost impossible to find shlt that fits! the guys that own or work at the stores call me when they get the xxl's in and 70% of them will fit. depends on the material.

    Thomas Pink is another uk brand. We have it in the city as well. I love all of there shirts! Pink shirts are great for a nice night out when you want to impress a chick. THey can be on the expensive side.

    Believe it or not, Carlos is right!! Your going on a cruise. Less is best!! Dont wear a shirt!! And if you have to, tank tops and sleeveless shirts are the way to go!! If you have to get a little dressy... button down with a matching tank underneath... (i personally wear nothing underneath and open the shirt up!!)

    Tropical cruises call for summer attire(sp).... White/beige clothe pants (amlost see through) no underwear w/ open button down or tank top w/ button down hanging on side. Perfect outfit!!
