Understanding clothing cuts is critical. Few clothes are made for men with athletic builds, with or without the belly.

I have to buy big and tall dress shirts, for example, but department stores don't carry neck sizes over 18, so I have to go to Men's Warehouse. The problem with having an 18+ neck is the clothiers then make the torso a tent because they expect you to be shaped like a balloon.

So, I have found that I have to buy slim fit as those shirts are tapered more, like my own torso. So, a slim fit 18.5 36/37 shirt isn't tight, it fits me like a 15 33/34 would fit a regular sized guy.

Moral of the story is: Try on everything before you purchase for fit and buy the size and cut the fits the best, even if it doesn't seem like what you should wear.
