Some may know I've been working on a body transformation. I've now lost around 45 LBS in the last year by cutting breads and sugar. Ironically, your appetite also decreases when you no longer have the urges for sugar and breads. Naturally, my XL shirts no longer fit, so I've been slowly buying M sized slim or extra slim fit shirts and tucking them in. Some of my friends thinks I look too thin when they are tucked in, but I do not see it that way. It is true, my arms have gotten a bit smaller since the reduction of fat, and I am working on getting bigger muscular arms, but I did lose 45 LBS, so my body took the fat from all over it seems. Keep in mind, my friends do not care what they look like and are a bit over weight. I've never been able to wear slim fit shirts before this year because I was slightly overweight and my stomach and had slight chest fat (BMI 26.7). I no longer have this issue (BMI 22.3). Should I stop tucking in my non-dress shirts? I do not tuck in t-shirts or sweaters, just my henley shirts as I like the way I look. GQ says you can do either, RMRS, says no. I was never into much style, but I guess this is what's needed to obtain attractive ladies these days.

Rule of thumb: don't wear clothes that are too much bigger than you are. Clothes that are too big will make you look smaller. My little brother always bought shirts that were my size and wore them, and as a result, he always looked like a shirt on a hanger.

Regarding the tucking in the shirt thing... I hardly do unless I'm wearing a suit. For a long time, I was forced to at the school I attended (until around junior year when they basically said I didn't have to anymore) If the shirt is too long or has an obnoxious tail, then go ahead. But you may be better off having said shirts altered by a skilled tailor in the long term.

Wear fitted shirts, if you have a slight pouch or gut use black and grey to your advantage. Black is very slimming

Shirts must be fitted around your shoulders and upper back, and taper as it goes to your waist, the shirt must also hug your arms comfortably (not so loose you can fit a whole other arm) preferably the bottom of your shirt will end at or just below your belt buckle. If you can lift your arms and ladies can see your happy trail or a peek of your belly button ( disregard if you are lean/have abs) then it's too high or the shirt is too small.
