    In the long-run, Noodles is going to be better off with only a closet full of things he really loves. My concern and I think the concern of some others who suggested he not sell the suit in question is that he seems to have a serious hole in his closet in the intermediate term and will either need to wear some of his old ill-fitting suits (which look worse than the suit he sold) or wear the hell out of the suits that do fit (and happen to be more conspicuous patterns), neither of which is really a great option. The suit he sold and his other suits have already been worn and wearing them a few more times isn't going to have a material impact on their value.

    Noodles, what exactly do you wear to work these days?

    You're quite right in your observation. I have a big hole in my suits collection. I have worn the Formosa twice and won't wear it until some special occasion or for another month. I still have the 3 stupid Zegna suits that I decided to keep and I am abusing the heck out of them.

    ^ Could be worse I guess. You need something to wear until you have a closet full of things you actually want.

    The problem is, that what he likes fluctuates with greater movement than a fart in the wind.

    That and that he is sometimes blind as to what looks great, apparently.

    Noodles, what's wrong with those suits? Are they the zegna's that are too small for you?

    I think the bigger travesty is that you're wearing blutchers in one of the pictures :p

    Most likely will be filled by SuSu.

    So much hate [​IMG]

    They're all size 38R that SF council has deemed as ill fitting. I agree. Shoulders are too narrow. I cannot even button two of them 'cus I got so fat. [​IMG]

    'SuSu' always makes me laugh because that's how kids say they need to go pee pee in hindi.

    Also, try 2-3 different sizes for the jackets in SuSu. The PRL jacket you posted looked better in the chest than the SuSu SC you had posted.

    Also, also: Start working out brah.

    I was gonna start swimming until I saw the trunks that my wife ordered. Spandex tight showing what little I have. But I agree. I haven't worked out for about a year now but will do this week.

    How does spandex tight work with the plaits?

    My new company profile pictures came out. But just have to say thank you all for this. Just look at the improvement since 2012.

    Forgot the suit, the biggest improvement is ditching that 70's Craig Sager hairdo.

    No hate here, noodles.

    I have a hard time seeing suit supply suits workout for someone with a pear-shaped figure. But I have no experience with them, so I'm kind of talking out of my butt on this one.
