    When suits don't fit anymore...

    Do you get rid of them or hold onto them in case you lose enough muscle to fit into them again?

    I've never been really big (no desire to get big), but I seemed to have added some upper body mass in the last eight months. A suit I wore last fall is too tight to wear now (it's tight in the arm pits and around the chest) and it's gotten too small to have tailored. So, I can either donate it, sell it on eBay, or keep it in my closet in case I shrink down again.

    Definitely a cool "problem" to have. My wife just laughed and said we'd buy a new one. But I still have this perfectly good, hardly worn, $400 size 39 regular to deal with (told you I wasn't that big ). BTW, the pants still fit fine, so at least I know I haven't just gotten fat.

    And YES, this is training related, god dammit. (please don't banish this to open chat....have you seen that hellhole? )

    Keep it and buy a new one. If you want to get rid of it give it to someone you know IMO. Just my 2 cents.

    Your diet will set you free.

    Do not own a suit and never will. I do keep two sizes of pants and shirts though.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    Personally, unless you are really hurting for cash, I would just save the suit. Things happen, diets sometimes can't be kept up with; it will be good to have the backup. You could also give it to a family member or something if that opportunity presented itself.

    Haha, I thought about it briefly, but decided against it before I even read this.

    keep it. if you get smaller in the future, even if its 4 years, and you gave it away youd be thinking "damn, wish i still had that suit"

    The collars are fine, but two of my favourite short sleeve "going out" shirts are rather snug around the sleeves. By next year im doubting theyll fit at all.

    Ah, the trials and tribulations of weight training :P.

    Just keep the damned thing.

    Damn that's a lot of words to describe getting fat.

    Hey, if you take the word "ALBOB" and rearrange the letters and swap a few out, it spells "TINY HOMO." Just an observation.
