    Green Lovat and Grey Lovet MTM Argyll Tweed Jackets and Prince Charlie with Waistcoat

    Specifics of these three Made to Measure jackets by Lochcarron

    Chest 49" Waist 49"

    Collar to Waist 19"

    Sleeve Center neck to wristbone 32 3/4"

    I am 105 lbs lighter than when I bought them...need to get out of the closet and get an active life again.

    No clue on price yet. Whatever's fair if your current size happens to match my former size.

    Showing them all together since they're all the same size.

    I guess I misunderstood. I thought you
    had two kilt jackets...a lovat green jacket and a gray jacket. I will have to think about it. I used to have a lovat green jacket but wasn't really happy with it. I'm hoping to find a contrasting color jacket, like a charcoal gray to wear with my Campbell kilt.

    I'll try to get my measurements to see if it would fit. I guess I should ask how much you want for the kilt jacket.

    Just looking for a fair price and shipping to get it back in action again. If it fits we can work it out.

    What is the sleeve length, measured on the outer side, from the shoulder seam to the bottom of the cuff?

    Thanks!

    Well, I've lost 105 lbs over 26 months, slow and steady with a doctor hovering to make sure its not some fatal disease.

    Just treat my body like the bag of chemicals it is and watch what I put into it. Focused on less sugar and fewer calories.

    Started out dragging my morbidly obese self around one lap of the local school track...huffing and puffing. Kept at it rain or shine. Started building up stamina as the weight went down. Soon walking around town with ease. Depending on time walk from 3 to 7 miles most days. My knees are shot so can't run but walking actually burns more calories than running.

    Learned that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels. Also learned that a little bit of food can pile on the pounds and a lot of exercise barely loses any weight.

    Added short workouts with dumbbells and Indian clubs to keep my skin from getting too flabby and working my upper body and burn a few more calories.

    Last month doc took me off my blood pressure medications. Still have about 20 more pounds to lose (slowly) to get out of the obese weight range.

    Downside is also the upside - getting to/having too buy more clothes in smaller sizes. Shirts have gone from 3XL to Large. And new kilts and new pants and new belts and new jackets and underwear.

    Feels great. No huge effort. Just common sense.
