Noodles might turn that around and say that when he's in good shape, he'll wear the good stuff more often!

Piggy backing off this London talk, I'll be going to Paris this spring. First time there, and in Europe in fact. All of the travel books suggest "dressing up" while there in order to not come across as an oblivious American tourist. I'm usually just in button downs and jeans and curious if this would be out of place.

Not in my experience. Paris does have some fashion plates types, as do most large cities, but average and poor dressers abound. If you don't want to look like a tourist simply don't wear shorts, a polo shirt, and don't have a camera constantly draped around your neck. On the other hand, who cares if you look like a tourist? :)

 

That being said, I simply dressed as I usually do while in Paris. Jacket and tie for dinner, comfortable clothes for walking around.

For comparison, here's the Proper Cloth President Spread Collar:

The cloth here is the Jones Light Blue End-on-End PCF325.  I don't recommend it:  it wrinkles terribly and is almost impossible to iron.

Dude… 15 lbs in a month? That is going overboard and it's not healthy (unless you are 300 lbs). I'm not trying to sound like your mother, but be careful with losing too much weight too fast.

I'm not saying you can't, I'm saying it's unhealthy. But you are going to do what you are going to do I suppose.

Just cause ya can doesn't mean ya should.

Slow and steady noodles. No use making unsustainable changes to diet and such.

 

CM the first bit is mostly waterweight anyway, so not sure what, but 1-2lbs/week is about the upper end of what you should do for weight loss anyway. Life isn't a biggest loser competition.

Yes, the people who can lose massive amounts of weight rather quickly are people who are morbidly obese. For people who want to lose 10 or 20 lbs it is highly advisable to take it slow. Even if the health aspects weren't a concern, a massive crash diet and exercise tends to make people quit very quickly anyway. It's not about a number, it's about making a lifestyle change.

Not crazy about that one, AC.  Glad I went with the Milano II.
