    No, you won't simply get big and muscular just by lifting weights. P90x is a decent conditioning routine, but if you're looking to actually shape your body (and no, that does not automatically mean getting huge), lifting heavy weights is your best bet in terms of effectiveness. There's no other type of training as far as I now where you see results on your physique as fast.

    Cutting isn't about training, it's about food - eating at a calorie deficit. The workout breaks down the muscle tissue and whether you gain size or lose size (and fat) is totally dependent on if you eat more or less than your body needs to maintain it's current weight.

    I'll leave this discussion here. Felt the need to clear it up but don't want to clog up the thread.

    K, so, question - I own jackets lined in viscose, and a jacket lined in cupro, and this is the first I'm hearing of bemberg. As I understand it, all three are forms of rayon, which is itself basically washable silk. What are the differences / why do we never actually see silk linings?

    The nicest is definitely the cupro one, but that could be because it's thick thick thick.

    I was just asking about silk shirts earlier today and someone said that they were very hot, made her sweat.

    How small are you guys talking with the size of the TOJ1? I'm thinking of picking one up used. I'm 5'9," 160lbs, 37" chest, 17.5" shoulder. Will I be okay with a size 46?

    a 37 chest I would think you want a 48 right off the bat.

    You answered it yourself - silk is delicate and essentially non-washable. Also, it's very expensive and linings are traditionally not meant to be that expensive, and can be replaceable, at least on tailored things. On a leather jacket, less so, so you need a more durable, permanent lining.

    also, Bemberg is just really nice and as you guys know, we deal with a lot of Japanese-made stuff out here because it's essentially local; Bemberg is an Asahi Kasei product and like YKK Japan's product, good quality and available to us. If I lived in Europe things might be different by name, but not necessarily quality-wise.

    Any plans for a shorter wool coat, like a non-MA 1 bomber or something?

    My basic feeling is that the stock sizes correspond to normal sizing that is actually kind of relaxed. So a 50EU is normally a 40US, and in toj sizing, a 50 will fit a 40" chest, it'll just be relaxed. Actually, it follows Drew's pattern pretty well.

    For example, if you hav ea 40" chest and follow his multipliers (1.05, 1.08, and 1.1), you come out with (roughly) 42", 43", and 44". Those actually correspond to sizes 48, 49, and 50: 48 for tight, 49 for slim, 50 for relaxed.
