    I love this response.

    Congrats on the weight loss. I know all too well how harrowing it can be. Working on your upper body will no doubt bring you great reward. Keep at it!

    Stay well.

    Top tip: When buying PRL chinos or any PRL trouser for that matter opt for the ones that are unhemmed. eBay recently removed "unhemmed" as a choice in the inseam selection, but these pants are made far superior than their pre-hemmed counterparts. Also, you can dial in your desired length and have turn ups put in so as to have that truly customised fit (in terms of length). I have also found the unhemmed trou to be slimmer in the leg which I think would look great on you.

    I know you're inciting a riot but I'm going for it anyway. The pants the gent I quoted were clearly pre-hemmed and then turned up. And too wide at the ankle. Something I used to do until I learned better.

    For instance, you can buy Preston cords pre-hemmed or unhemmed. The pre-hemmed models retail for something like $79 whereas the unhemmed models are like $295 and are made in Italy by Corneliani with horn buttons. Same model. Differences only some folks would recognize but thanks to SF I do. Best part: both can be bought on eBay for about the same price.

    I offered a top tip which I would gladly await his reply on.

    What do you have to add about his fit in the way of help?

    Great point and I think NORE was just trying to help. I actually found that helpful.

    The product of Scotland can do negative things relating to grammar. Thank you.

    Yes, under no circumstances should you type after eating haggis.

    The "rule" that you shouldn't end a sentence in a preposition isn't an actual rule in the English Language. The confusion came because in Latin, sentences don't end with prepositions - ever. In most cases, when constructing a sentence in English it sounds best to put the preposition somewhere besides the very end; but if putting the preposition at the end of the sentence makes the sentence clearer, there's no reason not to.

    After an overzealous editor attempted to rearrange one of Winston Churchill's sentences to avoid ending it in a preposition, the Prime Minister scribbled a single sentence in reply: "This is the sort of bloody nonsense up with which I will not put."

    While we are nit picking grammer..................................................

    It is not possible for something to be 'more' correct than another. As correct is an 'absolute'. Something is either correct or it isn't.

    Let the grammer wars begin!

    Also, semicolons are damn near useless. The only people I know who use them are programmers and intel analysts with sentence limits.
