    I don't want to use proton powder, that will give me acne and man-tits and shrink my balls.

    ... but seriously I'm not skinny. I'm 5'10" 180. That's overweight according to body mass index.

    Protein powder won't do any of those things but starting an entire workout regimen to fit into a sweater that is flat out too big for you in the first place is not the move. That thing is just too long and billowy. It's not flattering at all and it just doesn't fit, looks sloppy.

    Picked up a beauty overcoat today I'm hoping someone can authenticate and date for me. NA, btw.

    How do you guys add photos to your Spoilers?

    Amazing details, most likely bespoke but fits me perfectly. Blue with red windowpane. Horn buttons including lapel closer and bottom front and vent closers. Turn back cuffs without buttons. Patch pockets with horizontal flaps. Red satin lining across shoulders and down arms, also on inside of cuffs. Great hand but can't tell if it's 100% wool or possibly some silk or cashmere. Same X stitching on collar self-lining as in above photo of label, but in purple to blend in. I wore this home with my thrifted BOSS jeans, Frye Oliver boots and the wool scarf as seen on the chair above and felt very comfortable. Very nice up/down piece.

    Oh, same store saw a pair of AE walnut longwings size 9. Would most definitely have kopped but width was A (A!?!). Anyone want proxy? I could go back in the morning for photos (and to try on just in case).

    We're the same size. I've bought cashmere I knew didn't fit only because I couldn't bear to leave it (the made-in-Scotland type). You have a father-in-law or large uncle to gift it to this Christmas?

    Not a bad idea. Actually it might fit my dad who is 6'1" and recently lost some weight.

    I want that so badly. Yes it's authentic. Probably 60s, and no I don't think it's a bespoke piece.

    Sup Spoo! And you would love this store we were at, there was Versace Silk everywhere. Wasn't all mainline but there was so much.
