I at one point was up to 240, however have gone as low as 175, so suffice to say, I've been all the sizes. I may be able to help you. I believe when I was 225 I was a 34-36 inch pants waist, depending on the measurements, probably more often a 36 would have been the more comfortable choice. Just cuz at 175 I'm a 32 on the dot, that scale roughly makes sense.

 

Thanks! That makes sense to me.  I am thinking 38 is probably realistic for me.  Hell, I'll be thrilled to be under 40!

Can I get an authenticity check in with this thing? 

 

Ive never tried to flip cucinelli leather wear, its sort of hard for me to tell if its legit, because they frequently have crappy stitching and cheap YKK zippers on their real shit in the boutiques, so i really don't know.

 

The weird 4U tag on the inside is throwing me off as well.

That 4U tag doesn't look right, isn't that a Swedish brand?

Ive tried looking it up, but I can't figure it out. It sure seems strange. Guy said it was a sample?

Looks like I may have found it.

 

4YOU clothing FB page. Seems you can order "custom made" designer clothes, if you pay in Rupees.

I was going to say, that stitching is atrocious.

Gotta love the thriftstore logic.old label twice as much as the new.


Ooooh so close...

FYI to anyone looking to up their shirt game. VP and Huntingwood Value Village has about 20 Charles Tyrwhitt shirts. Most are Oxford classic fit 15.5 33 inch.

Reasonably priced at 8.99. I bought the slim ones

Ended up snagging it at $100

 

The two mistakes I saw (other than misspelling in the title) are 1. It's a men's jacket, not women's and 2. It is listed as a cashmere blend, but I've found a couple of these jackets sold before and they are all 100% cashmere

 

Taking a gamble on condition, but it looks good in the pictures and barring any major flaws it should do fine.

 I'm sure the pace of the weight loss will slow down.  But, I'm hopeful to be close to the goal by Labor day!  I used to think that I would be excited about losing weight because then I could buy sizes that are easy to find in department stores.  But, since I have gotten into this hobby/obsession I don't ever go into department stores anymore.   If I really get down to my goal weight/size, I'm going to have quite a few nice suits that won't fit!  But, I'm sure I know a place to get some new ones!  

Congrats bud! I'm in the same boat. Trying to drop 30 pounds (for better health). And being able to fit into my clothes is a bonus.

The hardest part is the first couple of days.

Not directly thrift-related...

 

Warning: House Talk! (Click to show)
My wife and I put an offer in on a house this morning. It's about 4 miles from where we live now, and seems to be just about perfect. It needs a little bit of external work (roof an outside walls), but the interior is great for the price. Kind of a thrifted house if we can get into it. The waiting really is the hardest part!

No doubt... I'm in that boat again, trying to get down to my optimal running weight (15-20 less than I weight right now). Good luck!
