Stitchy, you need to lay off that swole juice so you can fit into the sechsy wears.

I know the conversation has veered away from working out lately, but I just read this article this morning and thought it was worth sharing:

http://www.artofmanliness.com/2014/08/13/why-every-man-should-be-strong/

I've recently been devoting more attention to my physique (I was working out regularly before, but this year I've intensified my efforts and am paying strict attention to my diet), so I'm doing a lot of reading on the subject.

The best way to make your clothes look better is to make your body look better

Any advice coming from a site called "The Art of Manliness" is inherently suspect. Clicking through merely confirms that my suspicion was warranted.

As for improving how you look in clothes by making "your body look better", what does that even mean? And by whose standard of better?

I'm with SB, that article was ridiculous.

The arms issue, though, is kind of a bummer, but you might as well wear it around for a while to see if it remains salient. Good chance you'll stop noticing it, say when you are in a conversation etc. If you do notice it every time you move your arm, like it breaks your attention when you are talking to someone, then probably not a good thing.

Thanks, man, glad you like it.

Hopefully it wears in a little, because I love the jacket.

Was browsing in the menswear book section of Harrods today, and found a book on vintage menswear, describing iconic pieces and their history. (Vintage Menswear: A Collection from the Vintage Showroom). Guess what I came across, Stitchy?

Here is the new Eidos sportcoat. Sorry about the poor lighting. I'll wait for your comments before I share mine on the jacket.

I believe he means that the two, in combination, will dramatically improve one's look. In very loose terms, I think your overall look would benefit more if you improved your clothes/fit by 25% and your body/phsyique by 25% than if you just improved your clothes/fit by 50%.

Also, surprised no one took note of my cotton pents. After all the discussion we had, I decided to try this wool/silk SC with cotton pents.

Being that the jacket is unlined, kind of loud patterned, and triple patch pocketed, I thought it was a good candidate. As for the pents, these are my most structured, and dressy, cotton pants, so I felt that it would my best option. I am actually quite pleased with how it looks.
