Christmas is approaching.  It's fine to by gifts for the Ivyist in your life, even if that Ivyist happens to be you.

For those of you with very short arms, I've been listing some very nice Southwick jackets in the shop.  All roughly 40 - 41 Short sizing.  So put those short little arms to use and crawl on over to the shop.  (most do have enough material to let out 1 - 1.5")

Had that jacket in my favourites since you first posted it and my Etsy refund on some unwearable shoes came in today.
Perfect synchronicity big_smile

Couldn't you have done all this before we had our crappy referendum?

A whole pile of US-made Brooks shirts in the shop soon, including Makers.  Broadcloth and Oxford, and even a tab collar.  Most in the 15 - 16 size range.  As always, in great condition so buy with confidence.  A few with small defects are displayed and priced accordingly.

That's apparently why they get rid of all the smaller sizes.  They're all wearing the large stuff.

Americans weren't fat until the 70's.

When Jack Nicklaus played against Arnold Palmer in PA in 1960, hecklers carried signs that called Jack 'Ohio Fats'. 
Nobody would consider him 'fat' by today's standards...

You can easily see how Americans started getting fat because we film so much. Not just actors, but sports which has average Joe's in the crowds.
So a Medium in the good old days is pretty darn small by today's standards.

Funny, same thing happened to our money...

Re: weight - and yet in some ways, things have gone in the opposite direction. Athletes have gotten more like bodybuilders (larger):

while women have gotten thinner (or at least society's ideal of them has):

And, of course, 90% of shirts and trousers sold today seem to be slim fit, all the worse for our rapidly expanding bodies... It's a nightmare out there...
