  • What the hell?? Cant fit high end designer clothes.

    Im not nearly as big as a lot of you on this site but im sure you may have experienced my problem. I just received a this kool blazer that i purchased online today and to my dismay that shit was tight on me. Im usually an XL in all clothes. But because this happened to be some high end label im learning that they make their clothes for human toothpicks. Last week i had the same problem when trying on jeans. They were well known brands such as Seven jeans, Rock & religion, and even True religion jeans all retailed at 200 bucks and up and they were all skin tight on the thighs and i even went up to a size 40 (my normal size is 34) and they were still tight. This is so annoying. So im curious do big guys just wear sweats and t-shirts 24-7? Can we never fit and wear some of the more expensive and high end clothing?? I just needed to vent. Thanks guys. Below is a pic of the blazer that i wanted badly but have to send back cause its tight and they have no bigger sizes thatn XL

    I feel your pain bro. I've ripped 2 pairs of very expensive jeans just sitting down before. I've had to wear baggy jeans before I ever started working out because of my quads. All of my jeans are baggy or carpenter fit. Those lowrise with the tight thighs? That shit will not fly for a bodybulider or anyone with decent quads. Have had the same problem with shirts and jackets as well. Most of my clothes are either sports wear or baggy jeans. Of coarse, you can have stuff tailored, but I'm not that big yet.

        For very nice dress cloths you have to get them custom made or tailored quite a bit, for normal cloths like jeans and T-shirts it's easy to find some that fit any type of body.

                Very shitty man and I feel your pain. For me I have found Burberry and Lacoste to have larger sized shirts that fit muscular men (I'm about 250lbs). For jeans I wear Mavi or Adriano Goldschmeid. I've worn the crotch out of so many jeans it's not even funny.

                This is one of the downsides of being a bodybuilder. When shopping I actually think to my self will I be wearing this when I'm bulked or cut.

                  HAHA...the secret is to look at the "clearance rack". After years of dressing well or what is the new lingo..lol, Metro....I found simply shot over to the discount section and save time! Most peeps don't buy double or triple Xl and the store needs to move inventory, so in hind sight it works out well.
                  Don't pay SRP and keep the savings for chicken breast!

                    I think all of us that compete have off-season and pre-contest clothes...lmao. When your weight jumps 40 pounds you kind of have no choice.

                      My goal in life is just to actually fill out my clothes.

                          Nutratroy, I cannot even begin to tell you...

                          I pass the Under Armour test... I look like I acually should be wearing something like that... but anything else, it is a toss up...

                            Nah, I totally understand. I like under armour, but every one wears it now...i just stay covered up.

                            Silverback is right, off season is dfferent then contest. But being 6'2 is a hard fit, cus the long sleeves come down about mid-arm! Plus, I also hate when the shirts shrink. Reguardless if I am on point for a show or not, but my second passion is buying/wearing nice clothes (actually thinking of opening up a clothes stores for fashion and bigger men with my pal out west) so I took this thread to heart.

                            But, I totally agree with this post, it is very hard to find clothes that fit bodybuilders. I guess that is why most just wear gym sweats every day...lol.

                              I never even considered that. Of course, I do it because... like I said, I just want to be able to fill my clothes out, which I do not... so jogging pants and gym sweats work good for me...

                              Plus... and this carries over from something I started as a youth... should I have to get into a physical altercation, I do not want to have to worry about my clothes getting ripped, dirty, etc. The more loose the clothing, the better.
