Over the past couple years, I've been keeping a very close eye out for improving my wardrobe. A couple years ago, I looked passable. Now every time I leave the house I notice the increased level of respect people have for me everywhere I go. It's amazing how much of an influence the way you dress has over people. And I'm not just talking about dressing "nice" here, I'm talking about dressing in any way. Once you understand the way other people perceive your personal representation, you'll be able to present yourself in the way you would prefer other people to see you.

There are a few tips I have for anyone looking to do the same thing I did.

First, thrift stores are you friend. What you have to know is that there are bad thrift stores, and there are amazing thrift stores. What you want to do is browse through a thrift stores and look for anything that is quality that you think might compliment your wardrobe. I recommend using google maps to find every thrift store within a radius of you that you do not mind traveling, and browse through every single one of them one time. Once you've done that, you'll have established which thrift stores in your area actually have the kind of quality clothing you're looking for, and you can go back to check for new things every so often. What this does, is allow you to find some nice staples and not spend that much money. If you do well, you'll be able to find some amazing things. I have a whole collection of silk and cashmere sweaters that would have cost a small fortune, like new condition, fit perfectly, and they were practically free. My wife found a $1200 designer shirt the other day for 6 dollars. Brooks brothers suit for $5. I could go on for hours.

Now, even though thrift stores are great for a lot of wardrobe staples, what really helps is finding out which retail stores carry the clothes that you like the most, regardless of price. If you stop by your stores of preference at about equal frequency that you do thrift stores, you'll be able to keep a mental tab of what kind of newer clothes your looking for, and you'll often find something on sale that is perfect, and sometimes you'll find something so excellent you don't mind eating the price for something that will last a lifetime. Even if you don't find anything, you'll still be learning what's available and what works for you. Personally a couple of my favorite stores are G Star and Universal Gear, then I'll stop by random others on occasion.

Combining retail shopping with thrift store shopping allows you to be versatile, and get a more thorough understanding of your preferences.

Always take note of what you like on other people, and keep that in mind while you're browsing stores. After experimenting long enough, you'll get a really good idea of what works for you.

As your collection of clothing becomes more complete, it's good to slowly phase out clothing that you don't like as much, or is of lesser quality as you expand.

You have to be patient. Don't expect to be dressing like a champ in 5 minutes. Take it one step at a time, and bask in the enjoyment of every little improvement. If you methodically work on it, you will likely be dressing great in a year or two.

Don't think that because something is in style that it's something you should wear. People all over the place are wearing plaid this year, and most of them look like they're trying way too hard and failing.

Find what looks good on YOU. It's not about what looks good on the next person, it's about what looks good on you.

Now there is one thing I will say that I think should be a staple for everyone. Calvin Klein's Modal fitted t-shirts. They look respectable if you ever need a t-shirt, and they work as amazing (AMAZING!! MODAL IS SO SOFT!) undershirts. I don't think anyone could go wrong with both a white and a black one.

Good luck, man!

I have quite a few things from Goodthreads (Amazon's men's clothing line) that are fantastic. Specifically these items:

Heather shirt

Short sleeve button up

Plaid shirt

Crew neck sweatshirt

V-neck t-shirt

And then for Amazon Essentials, I have these items:


Packable down jacket

I can't recommend either one enough. All of those products are great. The down jacket I use as a backup for when I just am doing quick day trips for work where I don't really care what I look like. I also have a North Face Thermoball in matte Navy to compare it to, and while the North Face is definitely warmer and more flattering of a fit, the Amazon one holds up nicely for the cost difference.

My point is - all their products I've purchased have been fantastic. My girlfriend has commented on all of the button up shirts and the sweatshirt how much she likes them. I'd feel pretty confident buying those flannels. But I also recommend checking out the Goodthreads line. Very nice stuff for the price.

I'm a fan of David Archy's bamboo tank tops, but I don't know if bamboo is really the best fabric for working out since it absorbs so much moisture, but I have had a pack of these for almost a year and haven't had any issues with them. I think they shrink a little bit after the first wash though, or maybe the new model is longer. I just ordered another pack of them and they're a bit longer than my old ones. I prefer these to my polyester blend tank tops though, even though those are quick drying/moisture wicking they aren't as comfortable when it's hot.

For shorts I would take a look at places like Lululemon, Rhone, C9 Champion. I also have some really nice sweatshorts from Abercrombie that have zipper pockets, but it looks like they're not selling those anymore. I think I have some nice shorts from Lululemon with deep zipper pockets as well

You don't have to stop wearing t-shirts altogether, but get ones that are either solid or ones that have subtle, simple graphics or patterns. Avoid wearing t-shirts that are in any way related to your school - these shirts are typically a bit garish, and when I see people wearing college t-shirts it makes them seem younger and less mature.

To start, I'd suggest buying some solid black crew neck t-shirts that fit well, like these. When paired with jeans and decent shoes, it's an easy yet polished look. They also look pretty decent with flat-front khaki shorts (just make sure the shorts don't reach your knees). Another plus is that black has a somewhat slimming effect (after all, we are on r/BigMenFashionAdvice).

This is not to say that you should keep wearing t-shirts all the time. To be sure, if you're trying to dress nicer or more professional you should be wearing collared shirts more often.

u/YiFF2GByC · 2 pointsr/CCW

I usually have an under shirt and cover garment, even with AIWB. I wear a medium shirt, if I wear a large it can look funny. I like to wear an "active" or "technical" cut. Which I feel is a bit looser than "fitted". Obviously standard and baggy/relaxed are looser still.

As far as I'm concerned, if I want fitted ... I'll see a tailor.

I have not been able to, nor seen someone carry a glock 19 AIWB to the level of concealment I desire. But, I can achieve that level usually with a stiffer (and also better looking) button up shirt over top...

I usually just use a cotton t-shirt and tuck the inner shirt back in as needed, but that's because I often get free shirts...

My ideal inner shirt is an inexpensive v-neck that won't appear around the collar (or stick out the sleeves of my overshirt) of a button up shirt and is a "tall" or long length to avoid having to tuck it back in during the day. Thankfully if my inner shirt has become slightly untucked chances are I have to use the men's room anyways.

Something like this in whatever fabric you like. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M790DSG/

A little surprised Amazon's own line isn't mentioned: Amazon Essentials.

V-Neck Link

I like their V-Neck line. They come in crew as well, a variety of colors, 2 pack for about $12. Fit is on the slim side but true to size. I'm 5"10, about 165 lbs, and medium fits perfectly for me. They have a smooth soft feel and so far have held up well. As a bonus, you can find plain white and black in larger packs (6 if I remember correctly).

I had surgery at ClinicForYou the week before last. Absolutely no complaints - flew in on Wednesday and was taken for a blood test, surgery on Thursday then flew back to the UK on Friday. My stitches come out on Friday, so I guess I'll have a better idea of the 'final product' at that point (regards scarring etc) but everything looks fine at the moment.

If you decide to go with them, then I would recommend going for the assistance package - you have a patient coordinator who helps things go smoothly (they take you to/from airport and apartment/clinic and can give recommendations for places to eat etc in the city). All the staff are really friendly, though some (unsurprisingly) don't speak very much English (which I mention only because it can be a little disorienting immediately after the surgery).

I stayed in the LeoApart apartments, which were nice and are very central in Wroclaw (about 5 mins from the main square/plaza) and maybe a 15 min drive from the clinic itself.

The only thing I would say is that the compression vest they give you is quite bulky (it also wasn't very comfortable but I only wore it immediately after the surgery so that probably contributed). I bought a couple of these (so I could wear one while sleeping and another to work) and they are much more comfortable and seem to do the job. Obviously your mileage may vary depending on build etc.

u/doczoid_md · 17 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm a bigger guy myself 6'0 280. My advice to you is buy some nice, dark v-neck t-shirts, then buy some short sleeve and long sleeve button up shirts of your choosing and wear them unbuttoned over the v-neck. It's a good style for bigger dudes, in my opinion, because you're still comfortable and the layers are more flattering.

Some suggestions:


Shirt - You can buy this a little smaller since you're gonna wear it unbuttoned

Maybe pick up some joggers and you'll have nice modern look.

As far as shoes go, I have wide feet too, I ordered these a little while back and they fit me well. I get a lot of compliments on them, although I realize they're weird and not everyone's style.

u/sooprvylyn · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Check out texeresilk on Amazon. They do a few tall size tees and the fabric is a bamboo cotton blend which feels pretty amazing. The white tees are too thin as outterwear but I have a bunch if the black ones in my rotation and I think they do some other dark basic colors too. They come in v or crew. They last pretty decently and I always recommend them to my tall family and friends. I think they do a m tall size

Edit: they do

Edit 2: am 6'5, and my 6'7 friends wear the large tall no problem too. Generous length.

Edit 3: also go over to r/tall and ask, you might get other suggestions

u/thewallbanger · 1 pointr/frugalmalefashion

Not sure if you're looking for cotton or breathable polyester tees, but I've been buying 32-Degrees V-necks for the gym. They're $7 at TJ Maxx.

For slightly more casual, the black and navy colors on RBX Active shirts are nice and stretchy, although they are prone to static.

I'm 6'-0", 170 lbs, 40 chest/32 waist, and the Mediums in both brands fit me well. I especially like that they're slightly longer than normal tees.

u/Groot13 · 3 pointsr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

Best i've ever tried are David Archy Micro Modal shirts from Amazon. I have them in black and they are insanely comfortable and soft, very good fit, stretchy, retain their shape, and are insanely breathable. Can't comment on any other colors but I will be trying out the white ones, hopefully they aren't too see through. Also good for taller slim guys like myself (6'3") as they are a little longer than the shirts you'd find at Uniqlo, Calvin Klein, etc.

Here's a link:

u/KarlJay001 · 1 pointr/Startup_Ideas

Here's the Tshirts, I found them in Walmart:

I don't know if they do the same thing for socks, but that would be awesome if they did.

The compression part is probably just the thickness of the socks. I just bought new socks about a month ago and they've already started to break down. They need to have more elastic. Most likely you won't get the range of sizes, so they would be size specific, but they would be great for sports.

You could look at how the foot works, example, have a strap of elastic around the arch, maybe even adjustable so there is support at the arch.

I would probably buy some of the Xtemp shirts and some compression shirts and do that for socks. Advertise them on motorcycle sites and health/fitness sites.

How exactly does your tactile sensory processing disorder work? Those of us who don't have your disorder may not be equipped to answer you truthfully. I know that I also have a lot of problems wearing tight clothing, but binding is ok for me in that sense because my issues are social, and the tight clothing feeling only exacerbates them. If I bind correctly in a way that doesn't show off that I have breasts, I don't have an issue. It sounds like your case is going to be very different, though. Additionally, the bigger you are, the harder it may be to bind even with normal tactile senses.

You can always get one binder and try it, see how it works for you. (this one isn't the absolute best for compression, but it's decent, cheap, relatively comfortable compared to tighter binders, and will work if you're smaller and/or layer on top of it. It can be a little tough to get into and out of, but once it's on it's not that bad. Go down in size for better compression: http://www.amazon.com/Underworks-Microfiber-Compression-Large-White/dp/B001DLGWLG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1342188030&sr=8-1&keywords=underworks+tank)

u/strawpenny · 2 pointsr/medicalschool


These really work wonders, in fact they work TOO well that my underarms become overly dry, so I started using a goldbond lubricating antiperspirant in combination and now its perfect. I can even play ping pong in the resident lounge before rounds and i won't sweat through my dress shirt. Best of luck.

u/Notonethrowaway · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

so I suffer from underarm sweat badly. Winter, fall, summer it does not matter ill probably start to swear from the pits.

2 things that solved this.

  1. [Thompson Tee designed for sweat absorption.]

    2. Certain Dri

    Now I am sweat free all the time and love it.
u/ironicphood · 2 pointsr/exmormon

I like the texeresilk brand on amazon. They have a t-shirt that is 70% bamboo 30% cotton. Ive tried several different kinds and these are my favorite.


u/i_am_unikitty · 0 pointsr/asktransgender

try an underworks compression tank top (here), made for men (gynecomastia). They worked for me when i was at the stage where doubling up tight tshirts wasn't working anymore.

Also, wear a couple of loose layers on top. the best type of shirt to wear for masculinizing is a size-too-big polo or button down.

u/talllefty21 · 9 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Thompson Tees. They'll change your life, just like they did mine. Two fits and three styles: crewneck, v-neck, deep v-neck.
My armpits are like a faucet and I've never sweat through one of these.

u/MouthBreather · 3 pointsr/DoesAnybodyElse

These have changed my life. Thompson Tee With Underarm Sweat Pads Original Fit Crew, White, XX-Large https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CIZLT2S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_pazfzbHCZFAM0

u/dev1359 · 2 pointsr/tressless

I have pretty bad gyno and I started fin in February 2015, noticed no change in my gyno condition after I started it (but then again I have it pretty bad, luckily it's not noticable at all thanks to these)

I plan to have surgery in the near future once I have the money for it saved up, so I'm also kinda worried that the fin might cause it to come back post-surgery.

Do you work out? I feel like as long as you keep in shape/keep your body fat levels low and keep your diet in check you probably won't have to worry about it recurring in the future even with the finasteride

u/unicode00D8 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

thank you for your response - i'm looking at the reviews on amazon link right now.

u/sFino · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I have the same issue, I find cotton to be very itchy and uncomfortable. I haven't bpught any yet, but I've been eyeing up bamboo/rayon fabrics for a while. As soft as silk and wicks moisture as well as cotton, and it's much cheaper than silk. There are quite a few stores on amazon that sell bamboo clothing. Here's a T-shirt I'm planning to buy. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006QZ3BS6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_QorUDbW7KRNNJ

u/Aducky · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Consider wearing wife beaters/compression shirts!
Also choosing to wear colors that hide shadows rather than emphasize them is probably a good idea (typically darker shades do a better job)


They'll hide most if not all of your chest problems

u/Tweeters_ · 1 pointr/CBD

I have sweat issues when going out in public, I'm not sure the CBD has really helped. I typically take CBD at night though not right before I go out. If you're talking about underarm sweating then Thompson tees are where it's at, a bit expensive but they just work

u/supertreekid · 2 pointsr/ftm

Amazon has Underworks binders: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001L9TD7K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_TShVzbRJX20SS

and https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001DLEZNI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_iXhVzbS972GPK are two.

They don't really have any packer stp's, but they do have underwear you can put a stp packer in: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00V2GKA2Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_nVhVzbH4N17CF

You could also out tubing in a packer to make it suitable for STP use.

I'm not really too into packing but I have heard it can be hard to find them in darker skin tones like ours..

Sorry, know that's unhelpful. :(
