    A fat gut, why now?

    I don't really have any family elders to ask this of. A few years back, I lost 95 lbs, happy. down to a 38 jacket, 34" waist. Last Christmas I wore flannels, tie and cardigan to my doctors. a month later I bought, on line, navy flannels and no way they would fit, off by 4-5". Fat Gut...

    Anderson Little Herringbone tweed jacket.

    This is an ebay purchase. the only Anderson Little ad I have is for the Navy blazers. Just curious is this is older than I thought.

    Brooks Bros Brookease Navy suit 40-short

    I have been waiting for a Navy that fit for years, on ebay. This came up. I realize Brookease is less than entry level suiting. I am retired on Medicare. this is only for a occasional Funeral/Wedding. Get it tailored, shirt, tie, braces. maybe?

    What style are my Allen Edmonds?

    I picked up some loafers off of the 'bay. when I put the '3764' & 34841' into A&E, 149 loafers come back. these have the same full rubber sole like my Wilbert's and similar red mahogany colour. Any way to search for these? thanks

    Buying some A&E loafers on the bay

    The number inside is 3764 and 34841. If I put that in at A&E, it shows boots and belts. If I go '3764 Loafer' it comes back with 149 penny loafers. why wouldn't the model number work?

    Home HVAC service

    Finally had service come out and recharge my home AC. Old style R-22 Freon was $225 a pound today. Last few 100+F days were fun. anyone had their systems replaced lately?? Tech's rough estimate was $5000+ (about what we are saving up for an exterior paint job).

    Level 2 Evacuation Notice

    This is good practice to quickly pack things. Marriage and Birth certificates fit in laptop bag nicely. Too bad I do not have mini bottles of Merlot to stash everywhere. Major bags were already packed and ready to go.

    Amazon practices

    Amazon is great for reviews and their Prime TV Stick. But they can't even tell you where products are coming from? Ebay has to list the sellers State. I bought 2 orders of face masks, and they are no where to be found. Now Amazon says they might be lost. Seller insists they are shipped...

    Slim cut?

    I came down from 250 to 166 now. 39 chest, 34 waist. 5-8 to 5-7. I didn't think that 'slim' would work for me with my 66 yr old stomach. Just got a Banana Republic slim fit linen shirt (M) and it fits fine. May try a dress shirt next (15.5 x 33). Been meaning to try a BB Regent slim as...

    slim trousers??

    I grabbed some Italian cords off of ebay. Size 50/34 waist . The leg opening is 8", smallest of all my cotton trousers. (I'm 66 soon). I'm 160 lbs, 5-7. Should I call these slim cut? maybe not for me, lucky to have my Nephew's son my waist size.

    lose weight, gain weight

    I was happy to lose 90+ pounds, but had to go out get a whole wardrobe. 38-R with lots of alterations. After 2 suits, too many sport coats (for a mid 60's retired guy), my doctor said I shrunk 1 1/2", now a 38-S with minor or none alterations. 34", waist, so most suits did not fit. Lucky to...

    Allen Edmonds 1951 Wilbert Brown polish?

    I just got these and the leather doesn't look pure brown. Hit is with Renovateur. Maybe Medium Brown Saphir polish? Great casual shoes for my walks. Even AE page's, look medium /dark Brown.

    A little project

    finished this week. I bought 3/4" brass knobs to add to my basic shoe trees. Turned out well, even though I didn't want to drill up from under the heel. Most of these are 3 for 1 Banks.

    Starting Medicare very soon

    I am starting Medicare next month. already the $135 seems like a lot. Advantage or traditional plans? Friends have commented from California, but now I see the Oregon, where I am located, seems different. I am decent health and weight, parents lived to 90's, and only one generic med...
