Yea, i usually do tuck my shirt in if I'm wearing a jacket or something. Hemming only costs like $6 at my tailor and she has same day pickup, so it's extremely effortless to get it done.

The flannel is a touch long, but I don't think it's worth hemming any. I would advise against the tuck; it's only going to accentuate your hips. The flannel does look too big in the shoulders by a decent amount.

I have the same flannel, both in size and color, so I know it's not the most flattering shirt from the side view. I've considered getting mine darted, but I'm not sure it's worth it. I haven't wound up wearing the two I bought as frequently as I anticipated because I'm OCD and don't like how the collar on the shirt sits. It's kind of flimsy and just sort of flattens out, especially if you leave the top button undone.

are you using a mixed grip? liquid grip or do some goddamn grip strength work, 300 isn't that much.

@comceptionist I've noticed the most improvements when I've started doing Clarence's stretches that he does after squats. A few are pretty gnarly stretches and require good flexibility already.

Just spent 2 hours talking with the guys from newton running about some bizz, but they showed me all of the crazy innovations that went into the distance and distance s models, they're really next level running shoes.  If you want a shoe that you can also lift in get the mv2, it has a zero drop profile.  Don't get suckered into buying fivefingers or any minimal footwear, if you want to run with a forefoot strike get a pair of newtons, they last 5,000 miles, have 70% better shock absorbing and return 30% more energy than any other shoe on the market.

Down a total of 7 pounds so far...weighing at 204. I've always found the beginning of a cut to be the hardest, so this is encouraging. If I can get to 200 before the new year, I'll be in really good shape to kick ass during the spring.

Thanks APK. Yea big in the shoulders by 2" or so, which is good I guess because I try to get 2-3 years out of clothes that I buy so I have room to grow in. I'm OCD about the collar too, but when an item is <100 I say fuck it and just throw it on. Sorta saves me from myself.

I was talking to the founder/inventor looked at his original prototypes (which are way beyond anything that was put into production) and about 20 pairs of nikes/brooks/adidas sawed in half, and really there is nothing like newton midsole lug system which is only one of 13 patents that he has.

That shoe looks no good for lifting.

Are you getting paid to do this? Sounds like a marketing campaign.

Not at all, just local company run by nice people, but soon there might be a newton shoe upper designed by me icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Looks fug.

I rather lift in my old VFFs, which cost me <$100...rather than $150.

Cressey advocates NB MR00. Will buy when VFFs break down.
