To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman
OK gents, do you know your sizes, like your actual measured sizes? Not medium, large, etc., etc. but your shirt sleeve length, neck, inseam, coat size, and true waist.
Here's another good tip, when I hit the thrift store I actually carry a tape measure with me to check what I pick out before even trying on. Often times I weed out more than half the stuff I picked because it doesn't measure up. Then in the dressing room, I can hope for at least one perfect fit, then dropped the what I keep off at alterations for some thrift store tweaking. It feels silly at first, but after a while you end up with more takers in the dressing room than duds.
Wanna spice up the measuring process? Get help from your lady, you both can take turns measuring each other. I'll let you decided how that ends.
