From him: Shrunken Dude Syndrome

June 21, 2010

Back to the fella’s journey through this whole thing.  Now, Lizzie touched on it, but now its my turn to tell you the play-by-play of finding cloths for the engagement shoot. 

I thought I’d be slick and go to Target on my lunch break, my shirt/shirts and bolt, like us guys do. WRONG.

Did you know that while you weren’t paying attention, the clothing industry really wanted to tap into male body issues by making their summer lines tight-fitting… yeah, found that out the hard way.  Kohls, PacSun, Hot Topic… all the usuals… no luck. 

Yeah I know I’m a bigger guy, but in my defense, my weight hasn’t fluctuated…at all, infact I’m down 20lbs from this past Christmas, still between suit sizes but its a good start. Whole things bullshit, right?  Finally Macy’s with designer duds… all three shirts I picked out fit like a glove… spent a little more than I wanted to, but with my luck and ever-shrinking guys clothes, I figured: I better stock-pile now before next years’ super-slim line arrives…bulimic dude epidemic.

    I totally agree, my husband played on the O line in college football so he is a BIG DUDE and we seriously have to go somewhere nice and spent 3x as much on his clothes than on me. Him = shopping at Nordstrom, me = Target. Count it as a blessing in disguide 🙂

      Haha! For real. I shop at Old Navy and Target and it’s all good, cuz who doesn’t….but he comes home with deliciously filled bags from Macy’s talking about how hard the shopping trip was…and I’m all: Looks like you made out okay…I kid, I kid.
