    did you really buy a $10 000+ book
    The Taschen limited editions are usually $800-$1500, this price is ridiculous and you can probably still find it for a reasonable deal. They're more like collectible than books which means they don't really get used as people don't want them to loose value. AFAIK the book was first printed in limited and regular edition so I might be wrong. You can get a regular one here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/383...pf_rd_i=507846 Keep in mind that online retailers are just out to gouge you when it comes to rare books. I'm sure Ghulkan found it for less than the price quoted here.

    Grenson Leach is from their Rushden collection. Rose collection is their top of the line... look up Grenson Chertsey, maybe?

    Def not the highest quality but I was just looking for something on the cheaper side and had credits on gilt anyways.

    Didn't you loose weight though? Can't get it tailored? If not, WvG is your friend.

    Technically I've been at the same weight, just fat is slowly being replaced with muscle. My chest size went up an inch over the course of the summer and I made the shirt in the beginning before I decided to double my protein intake. I was dumb and told the tailor no pleats/darts in the back so I sort of doubt it's possible to let out the chest at all. Basically 4 shirts with cool patterns aren't wearable [​IMG]

    Damn, that's great about the body transformation though! Take consolation in the fact that your TOJ is badass, you don't need no shirt!

    I'm slowly turning from a pear into a carrot. Hope I don't out grow this shit too quick though.

    Just angry at myself because even the tailor said "You sure you don't want to sew in some darts instead of making it fit like that?" and I said that it'll be incentive for me not to gain weight. Forgot that things other than belly exist [​IMG]

    I'm definitely afraid of gaining weight or gaining a lot of muscle for those reasons. Good thing i'm too lazy to work out. Just have to watch out for the snacking

    Are you going to get some kind of hand dyed, bespoke penny for them?
