Well I just got some amazing deals on Ebay on some ASSOS TIR clothing (TIR is their largest size XXXL).
I got a new EVO jersey for $99 and a worn a couple of times FUGUJACK (was too small on the owner, looks perfectly new) for $275.
Since I knew I wasn't going to fit but I want to loose some poundage I thought this would be the perfect
motivation. Especially since these are early fall and winter items it gives me a lot of time.
I started at 275 and after 3 weeks am now 260 going for 230 by July, I am 6' 1".
I could "fit" into the EVO jersey but I am not after the stuffed sausage look. I let my brother try it on, at 6' 1" 210
there was a slight looseness in the back, so I think I will be fine at 220ish. The same with the fugujack.
Just for comparison I have a XL Abercrombie & Fitch jacket I use for fairly cold days and it was loose on me at 270+ with a thick
sweater and base layer underneath. So much for consistent clothing sizes.
It seems the more expensive the material (gortex, windbloc etc.) the smaller the items get. I also bought an XL J&G rain jacket (made in Oregon)
that is still snug on me at 260. The worrisome thing is it is even tight in the biceps, and I am planning on starting some
weight training next week. I might fit in the torso at 220-230 but I won't be able to get my arms through the sleeves.
