I have problems finding clothes and need advice on how to widen my wardrobe and not look like a douche in the process.
I am very tall and borderline emaciated-looking at 275lbs. Yes, that tall and that skinny.
I may be an engineer and geologist by training, but I am a cowboy at heart and literally have a barn in my backyard with horses. I like jeans, work boots, button down shirts or t-shirts.
I wear Carhart flame-resistant clothes to work even though I am mainly in the office. I've been known to spray down old Carharts with scotch guard and go skiing in Aspen and leave my North Face at home because I don't give a shit.
I have suits and sports coats made that I will wear for special occasions. So dressing up is not the problem.
Where I fall apart is dressy-casual clothing. My bride, while she loves horses, is a city-slicker. She wears Burberry, LaCoste, etc. She has attempted to dress me in this crap, but I look like a total Jersey Shore douchebag in it. Too tight, too short, too whatever.
Her family likes to do social events in places like Nantucket, which is pretty WASPy for a bunch of Jewish people, but they like it. I stand out, literally, as the darkest-skinned guy on the island besides a couple of token NBA players who married white girls and look at lost as I do. I would like to blend in a little bit more.
Any advice besides PIIHB? I don't care for the smell of shit.
