    I"m 6'0 210 with a 46" chest and 36" waist and in reasonable shape. I find the XL slim fit in Bonobos shirts is just right. I like a close not tight fit, and it works well. I hope that's some help. I can put up a pic if you want.

    Tailored is their closest fitting cut. If you work out at at it will feel painted on. Their slim is generally a bit slimmer than most brands and their regular fit is closer to a traditional slim cut. I'm pretty thin and fluctuate between slim and regular depending on how I want the shirt to fit. They have measurements of the chest width in their sizing guide. I would measure that against a shirt you already have. Or you can order two different fits and return one after trying on if it's not final sale.

    Sorry for the extremely specific post, but would anyone happen to know anything more about the Target Goodfellow Stretch Lightweight shorts Ryan N. Mentioned in this post?

    I’m a bit of a Goodfellow fiend (especially for their shorts) and I’ve swung by two local Targets (upstate NY) and haven’t been able to find any. The website still doesn’t seem to include them either.

    Hoping someone might have the lowdown on these (like when we can expect them online/widely available or if in the past Goodfellow has had significant delays for in-store merchandise vs. online).

    Appreciate it!

    Good job on the weight loss! I think the outfit looks great. No changes on my end. Cheers.

    I recently lost a bunch of weight ( thank you Falun Gong) and decided to try to dress a little better. It hasn't been long since I had an entire wardrobe of old navy and wal-mart, with nothing less than 2-3 years old, and much of it a decade or more old.

    I think this outfit works ok, with fit being acceptable and colors going together but what do you guys think about it?

    I wonder if the rolled up sleeves are too casual for the tucked-in-with-belt look and if I should maybe try lighter jeans - and otherwise I just don't trust my judgement at this point.

    Let me know what you think, and thanks!

    Congrats on the weight loss!

    Looks good from here. I often do rolled up sleeves and tucked in, but my look is a little more southern Preppy. I agree that lighter jean would look better, but it is almost full summer down here.

    I could use a second opinion on this casual outfit

    I have a jacket very similar to that, which I got at a J Crew outlet like a decade ago (maybe longer now). What you have is essentially a trucker jacket/field jacket hybrid. It's the length of a trucker jacket with field jacket details - lower patch pockets and olive drab canvass cut to trucker jacket length. I think that's what the designer was going for as the sleeves are the right length for you, just the torso is short compared to a classic field jacket. If you like the look I don't see anything wrong with it, but if you're going for a classic field jacket look it's definitely cropped, as those usually extend below the hips rather than hit at the hips like this does.

    The proportions are completely off for a field jacket. Looks more like a bomber with field jacket fabric and detailing, which is rather silly. It should cover most of your crotch, like the sports coat. I'd return it.

    Looks short to me, but probably depends in part on how tall you are, which isn't entirely evident from the picture.

    For me, yes. I'd return it.
