    Clothing for Bodybuilders

    Has anyone found a reliable and quality maker of clothes that fit a Bodybuilder's shape? When dressing up, I like to break away from the common v-neck shirt and jeans, and go with a button up and jacket. If I get clothes that are fitted to my stomach and waist, there's no way I'm getting my shoulders, chest and arms in them. If I get clothes that fit the upper body, they hang off me like a tent! I've had some tailored, but even the tailor is limited to what he can do when us guys are so big in the shoulder/chest with narrow waists.

    Tailor lol. Invest the ***** in some shirts. Others, you'll just have to keep shopping. Button ups can be altered. I had to in the military. Long arms. Wide back. Small waste. They had a hell of a time but I looked damn good

    I hear ya, you sound like me. Genetically long arms and wide back. You're right too in that I should just save up and have at least the shirts custom made. I've heard it's worth the bucks. JC Penney used to have a line of suits , jackets, slacks, and shirts called Athletic Fit. But as the general population kept getting fatter, and the average waist size claimed over 40 inches, they dropped it.

    Not sure where you are looking.
    But any Reputable Tailor can make a Shirt and, or, Suit, that Fits you Perfectly.
    If not, He's not a Tailor.

    I'm in Philly, so there's plenty of places where you come in.
    Pick out your Material for a Shirt or Suit, or Pants, or Sport Coat.
    And they will make it within a Week, or so, depending on the Season, as sometimes they are very busy....................... JP
    P.S.
    Off the Rack is an Entirely Different Story !

    Absolutely, I have noticed that crap too. As people change in size it messes with us even more to where it's even harder to find something to fit. It gets frustrating. Although funny because I wear decently baggy sweater at work and my boss thought I was heavy. I took my shirt off and was like, yeah, no, I am just muscular as hell and not fat like you homie lol.

    Ha! Too funny, when I worked for a company, I had the same issue! They always ordered double and triple XL shirts. I'm like "WTF, HOW FAT ARE ALL YOU?" Lol
