    Need some help looking for slim fit casual shirting

    Hi guys,

    Basically I've recently lost quite alot of weight lately (I was a skinny 36-7 chest anyway!) and alot of my casual shirts are hanging off me more than I would like.

    Topman can't cover my arms (I'm 6, 1), H and M aren't fitted enough and GAP are the same. A Reiss small is perfect on me, but I can't splash out on those prices if I'm going to replace all of my casual shirts.

    Any suggestions gents?

    Cheers,

    Nath

    I doubt you'll find anywhere on the highstreet catering to a frame quite that emaciated I think your options are probably get your current shirts taken in, use it as an excuse to shop at Reiss or, like THM said, put the weight back on. The latter's probably best for your health as well as your wallet...

    I actually have to agree!

    Only thing for it is to get stuff tailored, but with you being so skinny I'm not sure you really want to emphasize it too much.

    36" chest and 6'1" is a pretty unusual body shape man! I dunno where will sell clothes to fit you. I know skinny can be cool but it might just be too much...

    Edit: I have a few Junk De Luxe shirts which are very skinny in the body, might be worth looking at those

    Have to agree. Clothes also fit you much better when you have a little mass on your frame. Especially @ 6'1 you need some weight on it.

    Start out at the gym and put on some mass, that's what I'm doing since I'm pretty much in the same situation as you. (6'1, and 70kg)

    Thanks guys, although the general consensus seems to be I need to pile on the pounds!

    I am working on it. I'm quitting smoking for a start and trying to get more protein in my diet (I'm a veggie so it isn't always easy). I would get down the gym but it's quite intimidating starting out when you're as tiny as me.

    Could just get some dumbbells for home, or a weights bench? Or some press ups etc would be good, and should be a pretty easy start point given your low mass lol

    Don't worry about it too much, better than being too fat

    Buy some protein powder, easy injection of protein, especially for vegetarians.

    I have started upping the press-ups. It's strange, I use to be quite happy with my body. I've always been ridiculously skinny, but I was also quite toned before. Now I'm just the former.

    I might research protein supplements.
