So people said Josh had put on a few pounds, meaning he had got fatter? But he hadn't really? And he was comfortable with them thinking that he had put on a few pounds? Was them saying this preferable to the reality?
Did Josh look like he had put on a few pounds?

Did Josh have some medical device installed recently that would cause a scale to register more weight than usual when he would step on it?

Would a scale register extra weight as compared to previously?

Is what Josh was wearing relevant? Was he padded out? Did he actually look fatter, or did he just look like he was heavier (eg he was making the chair creak by sitting on it)?
Did Josh want them to think he had put on a few pounds? Or did he just not mind that they thought it?
"Everyone said..." did they express their thoughts to Josh? Someone else? Relevant?
Relevant who "everyone" refers to? I'm assuming it doesn't literally refer to evryone in the world?

Is the reason Josh didn't mind everyone thinking that he's put on a few pounds just because he knows he hasn't, so it doesn't bother him? Or is there more to it than that? Did Josh know why they thought he had put on a few pounds? Would Josh still feel comfortable if the people were right and he had put on weight?

The relevant thing Josh was wearing, is it clothes? Did it make him look like he had put on weight? Is it worn on the:
Head?
Neck?
Torso?
Waist?
Arms?
Legs?
Feet?

Did Josh intentionally wear the item to make it look like he had put on weight?

Does Josh NOT want them to know about the thing he's wearing that bulges out his shirt? Would he be just as happy if they knew the reason why he looked fatter?
Is the relevant item a T-shirt? Shirt? Jacket? Body armour? Bullet proof vest?

Was the shirt too big, so that it looked as though Josh was bigger than he was? Or as though he was trying to hide his extra weight with a loose fitting shirt? Or was it too small so that he seemed to be bulging out of it? Was he wearing anything relevant underneath it?
Had Josh recently put on any weight? Lost any weight?

Did the shirt underneath serve some sort of function besides making him appear larger?

Was he trying to keep warm? Was the shirt labeled? with identifying information of some type?

So, trying to recap here...

People think Josh has gained weight, but he hasn't and only looks because of his outer clothes. There is nothing relevant underneath the shirt, and the material seems to be relevant.

He doesn't mind people thinking he's gained weight because: it prevents them from thinking of the real reason he looks bigger? because their opinion is immaterial in his mind? because he knows that they'll soon realise that he hasn't really gained weight?

Did the shirt on top serve some sort of function besides making him appear larger?

You mentioned that wearing this item for his 'well-being' was closest. It wasn't prescribed to him by a medical professional? He would be less comfortable if he didn't have it on?

Is it a shirt? Long-sleeves? Am I likely to be wearing it right now? Would 'coat' or 'hoodie' be more appropriate? Is it closer to something like a pressurized suit for deep-sea diving, something that he must wear to be able to do something he normally wouldn't be able to? Is there any writing on the shirt that matters at all?

Does the shirt have any unusual features? Maybe it's a tight-fitting shirt for use while working out or something? Its composition isn't important? Maybe the shape, layout, or design of it is?

Can he do something while wearing the shirt that would be easier, or otherwise impossible, with it on? (besides fool his friends into thinking that he gained weight)

It's a lightweight shirt? Less than a pound if that?

does this refer to comfortable with everyone's view of Josh?

Is he in a situation where he probably has to keep the shirt on in order to fit in with a crowd? Maybe he's not actually part of the crowd, but wants to appear like he is? Is he wearing this shirt while in a crowd, or while with many other people?

Would Josh have put the shirt on when he got dressed in the morning?
or is it more likely that he would have dressed in another shirt and then changed into the shirt we are exploring?

Is the shirt composed of one layer of fabric? or two layers of ... something?

If two layers, is there anything between the two layers besides air or insulation? is there a significant amount of air between the layers?

Is there anything attached to the shirt besides Josh?

Not anything we would wear daily, something attached to it... Construction shirt relevant? Location? Would anybody in the same circumstances say it made them more comfy?

did Josh wear the shirt because of any physical factor of his body? ie..hair? skin? sweat? sense of touch? balance?

is anything electronic attached to the shirt?
would the shirt set off a metal detector?
would it alert airport security if one tried to board a plane with it?

relevant how Josh would have felt without the shirt?

Did Josh sweat more than average? Is something relevant that makes Josh sweat?
Would Josh have been more sweaty without the shirt?
Did the shirt have a fan? require batteries?
was it a cool shirt? was Josh cool? trying to be more cool? (I know you said expressions were irrel.. but I could't resist)

********* SPOILER *************
A Japanese clothing manufacturer, Kochou-fuku, announced in August a line of air-conditioned shirts, with two tiny battery-operated fans inside to evaporate perspiration (for the equivalent of about $95). (One drawback: The shirt billows out, suggesting that the wearer is overweight.) [Reuters, 8-17-07]

Thanks so much everyone. That was a tough nute to crack. Well done!
