Didn't he buy those like a month or two ago? Getting a suit tailored takes a week at most.

But arent your other suits smaller than the Formosa's?

If you're being offered a great deal on a barely worn Formosa and are rejecting it (and it's a size 40) I'd like to just go ahead and call dibs on said deal.

If you lose the weight you want to lose, would that allow you to fit into what Murl is offering you?

So you haven't worn them once? Also, haven't you been trying to lose 10lbs for 6 months now? So losing 15lbs might well take you a year.

Yes. The one he currently has is from me and before the weight gain, it looked great. Get to the gym, Noodles!

I'm sure you can do it, all it takes is 45 mins 3 times a week. Just go to gym, even if you feel like leaving after 20 mins that fine. As long as you get in the habit of going you'll be fine.

Yeah, that's a coat you'll get a lot of use out of. Hopsack works for me in the summer, but the texture isn't wrong for flannels. Here's how I've worn my three (two of them with flapped patch pockets and a welted breast), from last week back to May, madder to shantung, flannels and cords to yellow poplins and white denim. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




























Between hopsack and fresco 0520 which do you guys recommend for that climate (60-90F)? I'm saving up for a blazer suit.

Last time I was trying to lose weight, I went from 185 lbs to 160 lbs in about 6 weeks. But then everybody said I was too skinny. This time around, I want to get down to 170 lbs. 

I cannot believe it's always Ground Hog Day here. Might as well rename this thread.

Says a lot about me when I am talking about the same crap over and over. I need to stfu and start doing. 
What's your current weight?

No need to beat yourself up over it. Priorities can change all the time, and that's ok. However, if you want to wear your awesome new suits there's no other way around it. Good luck!
