I have 2 pairs of Wilhelms. Both have been washed (planned on hemming, never did) but never worn. They are size 38. One is olive, the other khaki.

$55 per pair shipped in the USA. Will go lower if you want both.

I can’t figure out how everyone is dropping weight over quarantine. I’m doing something wrong.
I'm down 20-25 pounds and actually added another meal to my day this past month just to stay at my current weight. I've added 500+ miles of biking and running per month when comparing pre-March and post-March stats.

Like @Patrick R, I've added a lot of miles to my routine (up to running 250 - 300+ miles a month) and not stopping by Starbucks for a large vanilla sweet cream cold brew (with extra sweet cream) every single morning (plus maybe a frappuccino after lunch) has helped out a lot too. I am usually making lunch for my kids while I've been working from home so I usually make all of us something healthy instead of me going out to the bar with my coworkers for a few beers like I used to.

I've upped my exercise routine but have really improved my diet during all of this.

I've sent off a bunch of stuff to LuxeSwap but also still have a bunch of awesome Hertling and Southwick trousers from @Epaulet that are now just falling off of me (I've probably lost at least 3" off of my waist). Some of my favorites of those trousers I'm holding on to for now in case I put some of the weight back on.

My body is too f'd up to work out harder so I knew with gym closure I was gonna have to tighten up the diet to keep things under control, dropped 15 that way but I'm not exactly having a lot of fun cycling through the same 3-4 carb free meals

Greenpoint Trousers in Huddersfield Grey Cavalry Twill Side Tab 32

Bought these from the sale section at a smaller size than I normally wear mostly due to the wonderful fabric but they didn't work out size-wise. They were taken out some in the waist and seat by a good tailor here in NYC but otherwise unworn.

Hardy Minnis Fresco Doyle size 40. Navy. Like new. $110 shipped CONUS, originally $225

Airy, breathable, lux fabric that won’t wrinkle. Perfect for traveling but decided I’m actually a 42.

I'm interested, could you please provide measurements? Between a 40 and 42 myself. Does this stretch much?

Sure, here they are:
P2P - 21.25
Back, base of collar down - 29
Sleeve -35.5

No real stretch to it. It’s a high end suiting fabric with nice texture, breathability and durable. Would make a great summer sports coat substitute. Takes the Doyle up an extra notch IMO.

Thanks, I'll take a look at my jackets tonight. If I don't button it, I think it'll fit well. Been sizing up to 42 for my Sinclair because I button those.
