That's a great pick-up. I love that Author, problem is that it was designed super oversized so my regular size was not working. If it works for you, you are going to be a happy man.

Not sure if you read the Guardian article a few weeks ago, but the EU just passed the Button Disclosure Act, which mandates that all manufacturers of button down shirts reveal their buttons. Yoox even had to take down all their hidden placket shirts from previous seasons.

Yeah, I love it. Did size down one to a V and that worked out fine. But I'm 6'4 so can understand that some people find it a bit too big. My one problem is that it's so thick in the arms that it's a bit problematic getting a jacket over it.

Yeah, for the first time ever, Italy was the first country to ratify a treaty: the Button Disclosure Act.

Zam pants and Double Alpaca arrived today! Thoughts:

Alpaca- thing is pretty crazy- beautiful materials, great/unique construction, unusual fit. Still trying to figure out how to wear it, takes a while to button the "scarf" across stomach but it looks good. Elastic waist hem sometimes makes it bunch up if not pulled down all the way. Quite warm. Couldn't imagine sizing up in this, I'd look like the michelin man. Anyways, I'll post a real fit when I figure how to actually wear it lol

Zam- Prolly the nicest fabric I've ever handled, never felt linen with this weight or texture. Really hard to explain through words. Color is a rich black, fit is pretty skinny with super nice stacking (but not excessive). Waist is pretty tight right now (still working on losing that last 10 lbs, so it should fit perfect after that). Does the waist stretch at all? Button detailing/pockets/etc are all very very nice. Super dope.

I was actually like 160-165ish before London and now I'm about 170-175, everything in my wardrobe fits a little more snug than I'd like so I'm just exercising more/eating less burgers and shit

Aloha Rag order came in:

Top Coat: impressive in terms of construction/details, but a lot thinner than I expected.
Cord Shirt: also thinner than expected given that it's corduroy (I was imagining borderline shirt jacket), grosgrain placket is more pleasing in person.
White Jeans: these are a collab with Big John and they're super nice, I had maybe the least expectations for these but they're really comfortable and the fit is good. Somewhere between a NS/PS.

I've always felt weird towards my body (even as far back as elementary school) but I've never been unhealthy about weight loss, in fact this sort of imperfect self view pushes me to stay fit and live a healthier lifestyle

It's really not that crazy to me, weight gain distribution is often localized rather than spread across the whole body. I've weighed around 145 for several years, but this year I somehow put on about 5 pounds. Since I'm ~6'1" I'm still skinny even at 150. But those 5 pounds all went to my waist, which means all the pants I have that used to fit well on the 32" waist I had 145 are now a bit snug on the 33" waist I have at 150.

as much as i hate teger's attempts to analyze people's mental states via their posting on styleforum ( still love you tho teger), i kind of agree. you look more than skinny enough and i don't think your dropping weigh for an athletic reason so just chill man. i'm all for eating healthy, but really bruh enjoy a cheeseburger occasionally while your young adn can still do that.
