I'd like to say hello before I just jump into conversations. br> I call myself Jainarayan (Jai + Narayan = "victory/glory/hail to God"), but you can call me Jai (pronounced "jay"). It's a Hindi language name though I am not Indian. I am an Italian-American Indophile who adopted Hinduism. I'm complicated. Anyway... I always liked buying and wearing nice clothes, as nice as I could afford. I was kind of athletic (weightlifting, biking, running) until some injuries put the brakes on a lot of that. I still do the best I can. Despite the activities I've always been somewhat husky and chunky. Being short (just about 5' 6") and "husky" (currently 218 lbs) often makes it difficult to get properly fitting clothes. All my pants and jackets have to be shortened. Unfortunately I'm not in a financial position to get mtm or bespoke. I like music, books, movies, history, binge-watching certain shows. I hope I have some meaningful things to say, but more importantly, I'd like to learn.
