I'm probably the dumbest SF member, and that's saying something since I'm a noob to boot.

In the past year I've lost 30 pounds and while I used to wear 15.5" shirts, I kept the same neck size and just started buying "slim fit" versions. I always still had too much fabric. I finally moved to 15" (had avoided it for fear of "choking"). They fit like a glove. Now I own one shirt that fits me and about 20 shirts (not that they're all high quality, granted) that don't.

Should I throw myself out a window?

Congrats on the weight loss. Learn from this and move forward.

If they are nice shirts sell them on B/S here.

Congrats on losing the weight! You'll be much happier being trim and fit as opposed to having shirts that fit

Given your description of your intelligence, this explanation might not make sense to you, but here goes anyway: Throwing yourself out a window will not help your shirts fit any better. Instead, I would suggest buying new shirts in the correct size.

Am I going to fast for you?

I honestly thought this was going to be a thread about JacobK.

Just realize that you have to be on the forum for 45 days before you can start selling.

Congrats on the weight loss! And trust me, it is highly doubtful that you are the dumbest SF member.

Perhaps when you jump you could use one of your old shirts as a parachute?

For a second, I was hoping it was the return of Manouche or even PoloRalph.
