Dressing Like an Adult

I wear boots at least half of the time at work. As I wear fuller trousers they don't look out of place.
I suppose it could be a good answer if you were looking to be taller, but it's a question of comfort and toe box space. 4 months in soft and open toed shoes resets my feet every summer.

Office work, visits with corporate executives - flat soled leather dress shoes

In factory work/visits with maintenance superintendents - Carolina logger boots

Gym - new balance

Leisure - barefoot at home or on porch, same leather dress shoes if in pants. Boat shoes if in shorts

PLENTY of super hard dudes have skinny legs. I used to know a dude who was all upper body, above the waist he was a light heavyweight, and below the waist he was a lightweight, walked around at welter to middle. You better believe that dude was a killer. Sometimes it's a real bad idea to mess with one of those guys wearing three inches below the knees basketball shorts.

It obviously works out for western boxing because you have to squeeze all your useful mass into a small window weight class, and leg strength is almost useless to a boxer. You're gonna be best as a Mike Tyson style torso moster with stick calves.

Raiding my 2009 clothes is finally putting me into more Human-looking stuff. I’m on the edge of falling out of the 2009 zone and having to buy new clothes. This is going to be the most expensive part of the reduction. Although when I was at my lightest toward the end of university, I actually really enjoyed shopping for quality clothes.

My everyday wear has remained relatively unchanged for about the last 20 years, save for that 3-year gap where I ran an ambulance service and worked a full-time EMS job at the same time. In those years, I wore Class A uniforms so much and so often that in my off time, I literally dressed like a homeless bum on purpose.

In any case, my daily wear makes me pretty much look like what you'd imagine a CIA Agent who doesn't care anymore dresses like. Khaki tan TruSpec cargo pants, khaki tan North Face baseball cap, Pineapple Connection floral print shirt, only buttoned to mid-chest (to expose the hamburger meat) worn untucked to cover up the gun, spare mag, and cell phone (always wear cell phone externally in ruggedized belt holsters), and a pair of khaki tan and black Sketchers hiking shoes.

I don't dress to impress. If I have to dress to impress anymore, it usually involves wearing an EMS uniform anyway.

I am getting so slender that I might need to get my fancy custom-stuff re-tailored. Thankfully I got it in late May and have a 90-day guarantee on re-tailoring, which will be well-past the August 1 deadline for VAYN.
