Great going Chucky! Can't be that hard to find something stylish for you. Dressing well and looking good in the stuff is such a benefit of working out.

Absolutely! Even at the weight I'm at now I am happy in a t-shirt out walking.I know I still look over-weight but compared to what I was I couldn't be happier.

The problem is I spent my working life in mechanic's overalls.I didn't own a proper suit until the late 90's.I've always dressed casual,or comfortable as I like to put it.

Luckily my sister-in-law is a great clothes shopper and I'm house-sitting for them at the end of the month.When they return from holiday I will ask her to take me shopping.She doesn't know I've lost weight,that will surprise her I think.

Why do some white people wear a light blue shirt and khakis on occasion?

==========
Race aside, people (often business people) who wear blue shirts and khakis generally don't have much taste and aren't interested in dressing stylishly and/or adopting a personal style. So in other words:

Fashion is simply not important to them.

They have no confidence or capability in judging what looks good.
==========

LOL. <Raises hand> Guilty!

To summarize that link, the average white dude simply has no sense of style. smile

Making matters worse, I noticed on my most recent pic (where I'm standing behind my wife) that my pants are way too long and bunched up at my feet. Man, my boring clothes don't even fit right.

Good luck, Chucky. Sister-in-law, eh? I might recruit my older sister to help me/wife out (seven years older but stays in shape and dresses fashionably).

She has to cope with my brother who has equal fashion sense as me.She nicknamed us the 'beige brothers' because that was what we would buy if we went shopping on our own.That or grey.

She introduced us to something called 'colour'.

That's a good idea Chucky, get someone in your family to help you.

Fashion is hard for me to describe, but I'll be out shopping or whatever and I know it when I see it. "Four o'clock!" (sometimes I have to remind her that means to look discreetly to the right and slightly behind). The top, jeans, boots, now that right there is what I'm talking about! yep

Same with men, I can tell when some straight dude (assuming) just knows how to dress well. Which reminds me, I keep putting this off but I need to go back to the cologne thread and take note again of the recommendations.

I was pushing hard on the fashion and makeup/eye stuff and was told to back off, that it'll all be squared away by 50. Ok then.

What I'm not so sure of is where do men normally shop for clothes? I wonder, once you acquire a sense of style (with help from a sister/sister-in-law), can you find a decent look at Goodwills and thrift stores (usually used clothing)? Or do you wait for a sale at Macy's/Richie's, stick to Sears/JC Penney, hit an outlet shopping center, Walmart? Where to go?

Ok, the one shirt I can live with (and I do appreciate the thought). Also, I promised to buy a tux when I get there, I might even buy some new Levi's. She still shops the thrift stores with me so it's cool.


Try Omega shirts wink

I asked. It's called Lululemon...

Symbol looks similar to Omega though.

No Marks and Spencers around here that I know of, I've never heard of them.

What I do know is I could take the $65.00 (I was off by 5 bucks) she spent on that shirt and buy workout clothes for every day of the week at my favorite thrift store (a big one in Baton Rouge, LA)!

Hey, don't forget the Calvin Klein underwear! biggrin

I believe Marks and Spencers is a UK-only department store.

I did some research this morning (while the coffee dripped) on men's fashion. I'm convinced that men aren't really suppose to have fashion.

Here's all you need for nights out on the town...

+ A couple pair or so of new dark Levi's (they still make 501s?)
+ A couple pair or so of light Levi's (or Wrangler, I guess) to wear with your black concert T's (contrast).
+ A couple or so new dark patterned (not solid colored) dress shirts.
+ A leather belt and plain white socks (ones that you don't mow grass with).
+ A pair of Hushpuppies or Penny Loafers (they still make these?) and a pair of white tennis shoes.

+ At least one nice tailor fitted suit and a couple of silk ties, along with a pair of classic wingtips.

Pecks, biceps and a slim waistline are your fashion, all that other crap just allows you to depart your home with a little style and without getting arrested. biggrin

Also, you don't need Calvin Klein drawers, just buy a pack of gray or black Hanes (like it matters). My comfortable faded white partly detached waistband "Homer Simpson drawers" have mysteriously disappeared one-by-one so I conceded this one "fashion statement".

My new wardrobe is mostly coming out of a very long retirement (apparently there was a time when I did give a damn how I dressed), short sleeve 2-3 button collard shirts with little alligators and tigers sewn in the front. smile

Or you could get a little creative (first pic).

For women, geez...I'm so still stuck in the 80's (second pic).

One more, for the love of the 80's (not Asian though, and there's a similar one with a lace-trimmed top, darker jeans and higher boots. I've looked but have never found it.

Things seem to have slowed down a bit and this is what I feared.I'm still going for it,especially riding/walking but I stopped counting calories.That and a couple of birthday parties and buffet food didn't help.

Back to the calorie counting this week then!

Still a loss though...now 98kg (15st 6lbs).By my reckoning that will be 22kg (3.5st) lost.

For US, you weigh 216 lbs. and have lost 46 lbs. That's really good, Chucky. thumbsup

I could never do calorie counting or anything other than just trying to eat better and exercise more. I know that apps and PX90 and all that stuff actually work, I just don't have it in me to follow a formal plan so my fitness/weight loss probably isn't as efficient.

I never worry about falling off the wagon anymore, I can have a +3 lbs. splurge day and I get over it by the next morning (every morning is a new start).

Sometimes I look back at my old weight chart from 2008/09 (see pic below, weighed in every Sunday morning) to remind myself that sometimes I gain even as I'm trying to lose.

Or I'll hit a serious plateau...

==========
01/04/09 216 lbs.
--
--
--
03/22/09 216 lbs.
==========

It happens. I don't let it bother me because I know I'm doing the right thing and eventually I'll get there. I just can't seem to get out of the 190s right now (wife is now well below the chart) but it is harder at 48 than it was at 41 (I started recording on my 41st BD after we both had lost a good bit of weight [from 265+ lbs. / 143 lbs.]).

I'm posting this chart again to show that you really can't pay TOO much attention to the scale on a regular basis, just too much fluctuation.

Tomorrow I start knocking out workouts again. Been so crazy busy, worked the last 2 weekends in a row and still no comp days. I did get a coin today at work, so that is a plus.
