    Yeah bro, I have a wide rib section, gain muscle in inner back/mid back pretty quick. Wide shoulders, thick neck, big seat area, big calfs.

    Some good, some bad in finding clothes that fit well.

    I'm trying to break the 180s to better fit my wardrobe (at a narrow framed 6'1"). Also putting more time in the gym too, so hopefully I'll be pleased at my size when I hit 190 and sit there at maintenance for a while.

    So I'm looking for some decent wood clothes hangers. I seem to remember someone posting about some reasonably priced hangers (I think they needed to be sanded? don't remember) but I can't find the post. Can anyone help me out? Thanks :D

    Hanger Project's stuff is really nice, with a moulded shoulder that helps retain the shape of tailored jackets.

    http://www.hangerproject.com/

    Butler Luxury is also really nice, and comes with a slightly narrower shoulder width than Hanger Project in case you want to save space.

    http://www.butlerluxury.com/

    Then there's Beverly Hangers. Quality is up there with The Hanger Project, but I don't believe they sell to the public.

    http://www.beverlyhangers.com/hanger.php

    Wooden Hangers USA is a more affordable option, although the construction and materials aren't anywhere near as nice as the first three. Also doesn't come in as many size variations, which can be an issue depending on your shoulder width.

    http://www.woodenhangersusa.com/

    Another affordable option is Mainetti. They're used by many showrooms and high-end boutiques. Stuff is made out of plastic, but they have some in a wood finish that looks pretty good, IMO.

    http://www.mainettihangerstore.com/acatalog/All_Suit_Hangers.html

    For all purpose hangers, try Container Store and Ikea. Not bad value wise, IMO. I just don't like them for outerwear, suits, or sport coats, cause the shoulders are too thin.

    All their stuff is stamped with the artist's name, so you could just look up the artist. There are also a couple of good reference books for identifying NA jewelry. I've been looking at this one. It might be useful for finding other people who do a style similar to that feather ring.

    90 degrees tomorrow. No one got the memo that it's mid September.

    Also, USPS doesn't even try to deliver packages. They go out of their way to not...

    Had dinner outside last night, can't complain.



    The danish equivalent offers a no delivery service, where you just get a text, that it has arrived at the post office and you have 14 days to pick it up or a week to pick it up a "mailbox".
