New clothes dilemma
I did a search on this topic and found nothing. Maybe this is obvious. I am halfway to my goal weight of 185 lbs. I started at 254 lbs, so 35 lbs lost. More importantly, my clothes don't fit. Waste has gone from a 40 to a 36 and dropping fast. I was XXL in shirts and now I'm between an L and XL. Neck has gone from 18 1/2 to 17 1/2. I don't mind looking baggy for home, but I wear tailored suits for work. Hate to spend $700 now on a suit that won't fit in 3 months. I expect to hit a 34 in waist and Large size shirt.
So, do I just go to JosABank sale and pick up a couple of suits in the interim or could I get the ones I have tailored down to this mid size? Nice problem to have, but expensive.
Get a few suits tailored down for the moment. No point blowing a load of cash on something that will be useless in a very short time. I had a favourite suit tailored down for a wedding and even in the period between picking up the suit from the tailor and putting it on days later for the wedding there was a noticeable difference in the fit...
I hate to say this but..
I don't know what your jacket size is, but chances are getting it tailored isn't going to make it fit better. If you only went down one size, like 44 down to a 42, then more than likely a good tailor can get it done. but if you're jumping down 3 sizes or more, then that's just going to look silly! Save the money, and just buy a new suit when you get to your ideal size.
If I were in your position, I would just buy slacks, dress shirts, and a couple button up vests. Summer is here, and to me, I'd rather wear a nice vest over my shirt and tie, than a blazer/jacket.
Just my personal thought.
