It'd help if you could scale the pics down a little, but it looks like you have a good base to start with. Body fat doesn't look too bad, maybe somewhere in the 15 - 20% range?? You seem to carry most in your 'spare tire.'

You're also very hairy :D

You lost a lot of weight recently, didn't you?

I have a friend who lost a lot of weight (~70) and has similar stretch marks and seemingly loose skin, despite being very skinny. Hes fixated on looking as thin as possible so he doesn't lift. Sad part is he doesn't realize he can end up looking more shapely by lifting. Anyways, great job on losing whatever weight you lost; a great inspiration. You have a good, tall, relatively thin base base and would look great after adding some muscle.

Yeah, I lost 160 lbs and I have the same issue with Stretch marks and loose skin, I figured the best way to fill the skin was with some muscle.

I was gonna say, you got a real weird looking physique. The weight loss explains it. Congrats on dropping 160! Now shave your body and hit the gym!
