    I love milk and eggs, but I'm thinking about going vegetarian and even giving up the ovo-lacto stuff too. :alien:


    RFT: I haven't bought any clothes in several months apart from a couple basic t-shirts. I'm enjoying putting work into my body's health more than I ever did gambling with B&S, webshop sales, or going through the hassle of returning unwanted Yoox garb. Feels good.

    RFTx2: I need to sell way too many clothes.

    Good luck with possible veganism! Dairy industry is horrific when you look into it...

    Drinking a lot of milk and having a lot of dairy is not necessarily good for you. There is a lot of fat. Moderation is the key... But yes humans aren't made to digest milk and in fact we are the only mammals that drink milk past infancy. Also i am lactose intolerant, found out around 25 as well. I just get lactose free milk or almond milk (don't like soy milk), problem solved.

    I went to the Margaret Howell store in London today. They were having final reductions sale with a good selection of sizes but they were still a bit expensive for me. Now I am not familiar with MH clothing...is there anything I should check out, I have a chance to go there again.

    Were the reductions further than 50%?

    eating lots of calories will make you fat. it's not about whether or not it's a fat (although its easier to overeat fat than say protein)

    Funny, was just browsing the site. I'd probably enjoy looking at everything, but none of it is going to be a steal. Much of the suiting looks like it's half price, but I'd be more inclined to check out the shirting and knitwear. I could go for this shirt, for summertime weekend wear:

    Saw the white high balenciagas still up on sneakerboy and was kind of surprised of myself when I after a few moments decided that: "Nah I have my B&N's, I don't need another pair of white hi's"

    Anyone recommend some luxe heritage knitwear, for lack of a better term? I'm not looking for something to be worn with a tie, though. I'm thinking more along the lines of something a fisherman might wear, but couldn't afford to wear.

    I'm burned out on Inverallan and Inis Meain, so don't recommend those. My latest purchase was Margaret Howell's indigo linen cable knit, as an example.

    You thought about Minotaur or Nonnative fisherman style knits? There's always the CM Italian brands too.

    I don't like CM/ SWD distinctions, but to the degree they're helpful, here are some CM-ish suggestions.

    Stock might be completely sold out by now, but Berk in London's Burlington Arcade has been going out of business for a while, and they recently put all of their stock on heavy, heavy clearance. They hold some of the best, remaining Scottish knitwear brands in the world. A friend of mine has written about them and Ballantyne here:

    Skipping in Burlington Arcade

    An Obit for Ballantyne

    (Berk's stuff is made by Barrie, now owned by Chanel. Ballantyne's machines have been smashed up and the name has been sold. Unfortunately, the new Ballantyne stuff I've seen is not really worth the money, but the old stuff is nice. Old stuff is also sold at Berk. Or at least was, don't know if they're still open. Shop could be completely shuttered at this point).

    Here are some photos of a Berk cardigan being worn by a member here.

    Note, Berk's stock is sized in UK sizing. So the knitwear is sized by the actual garment's chest size, not the size of the intended wearer's chest.

    I also really like William Lockie. I bought a 4-ply cashmere cable knit sweater from them last year and it's held up really well. Just placed an order for a few more, actually. They'll take custom orders if their current sizing doesn't fit you, but custom sweaters are of course not returnable. Haven't tried anything else but this cashmere cable knit (model is Chirnside on their Heather Wallace store), but I imagine everything else is quite good.

    Some (boring) photos:

    Lastly, I bought a chunky lambswool shawl collar cardigan made by Scott & Charters a couple of years ago. Also think the quality there is really good. They make these for many of the more popular "SWD" brands you see around - Epaulet, Ovadia & Sons, etc. They're also stocked under their own label at NMWA and East Dane.
