    52 eu is a fairly slim 42 U.S., pushing 41 or 40 if it's any consolation to my former 42r brethren. It's not to me since all that shiz should fit me now.

    Speaking of which, when you get the time can you tell us how you brought about this body transformation? @GMMcL

    don't normally have hauls that are brag worthy, but I think this one I did ok on.

    There are 2 off camera that i simply ran out of my own suit hangers for; but other than the one on the far left being a Ferragamo, all the others are PZs.

    all NWT.

    Well, I had been hoping for wads of cash stuffed into the pockets, instead I found an uncashed check for $5,083. What do Zilli suits retail for? I've got two super 200s now. I'm thinking eaye and I have nearly all the suits at this point but we might still have some oprahs.

    reo: eat less, work out more, have a lot of stress, don't sleep and don't expect your stomach to look like Bruce lee; it's just a smaller version of the old man stomach you used to have.

    Tnm; I have that lbm gun check. I love it.

    Holy smokes. Might be a good in to send it to the dude and say "Hey, by the way if you have any more stuff to donate, send it my way!"

    Thats about how it worked for me. 75 lbs down through running a couple miles every morning and counting every calorie to eat at a 1000 calorie daily deficit.

    In this backwater burg, any thrift find is amazing. I found this Hickey Freeman 3-button today, but no pants that might make it into a suit. I think it's salvagable as a blazer if I swap out the buttons though. The picture makes it look charcoal, but it's a nice dark navy blue.

    In the meantime, new season, new kinds of thrift finds available:
