Hi! I'm in my mid 40's and I'm a weight lifter. Thick up top, more narrow in the middle. Depending on the manufacturer, a dress jacket will size anywhere from a 48 to a 52 on me. But then, the damn…Continue

"From experience (I have this same problem myself, hence why I only own one suit), where you buy your suit is less important than finding a good tailor. Granted, a suit from Wal-Mart will not be as high-quality as one from Mens Wearhouse. I would…"

"Wide shoulders, narrow waist, and big thighs makes it hard to find anything that fits. "

"It's easy to find a "big guy" suit - but harder to find big shoulders, big arms - narrow waist, big thighs, suit. The big&tall suits will go on, but will be like wearing a burlap sack. "

"OP's in Maryland.  I didn't look to see W v. E Md., but someone's gotta be supplying DC with suits.  For this kind of purchase, it might be worth it to make a day of it and go to a bigger market (probably one of the close-in…"

"My San Francisco lingerie story aside, it can depend on regions.  I had trouble finding dresses my size in Virginia, but it's never a problem here in the second-healthiest county in the country (by life expectancy, and, very relevant, BMI)."

"Oh.  See, the Macy's men's store in San Francisco is 5 storeys high.  It's bigger than any Jos. A Banks or Men's Wearhouse or Nordstroms (though San Francisco's Nordstrom's has a floor and a half of mens wear)…"

"The same way anyone else gets a nice blazer. At 6ft 245 pounds, you're not that particularly big. I am surprised you are finding trouble getting a coat. My buddy Orville is 6'5 and walks around at 3 and a quarter, and he had no problem…"

"Pretty much what I meant by "real store" vs Kohl's or a Macy's, which the staff experience in suiting can be suspect. I personally would hit an outlet for a traditional store such as Brooks Brothers or Jos A Banks. I agree the…"

"Totally depends.  The senior partner at my last firm got his suits from Men's Wearhouse.  The managing partner worked with a personal shopper at Nordstroms once a year.  I'm sure neither could tell a $200 suit from a $800…"

"All in the tone and the attitude on both sides.  I was once laughed at at Macy's because everything in the lingerie department was too small for me.  Obviously not ok.  And there are ways to be mean about being at the other end…"
