Two Coats That Need A Good Home

Fellow 11W's I have a consulted with the powers that be here on our favorite site (Jason) and asked permission to put two of my OSU coats up for adoption.
Over the past two years I've been on a mission to get myself back to being healthy and fit. For the most part I'm succeeding. As a byproduct of the weight loss I no longer can wear a lot of my Buckeye gear. So I'm selling my two coats to a good home.
There are two for sale and I'm willing to negotiate. These coats/jackets (whatev) are in excellent condition and the ONLY reason I'm selling is that they now look like Hot Air Balloons deflated around a telephone pole on me. Any interest is appreciated and thanks for reading.
Both jackets/coats are size XXL. Forgot to mention that!

Just a suggestion, you might consider posting what size they are.  I have no idea if you went from an XL to a small, or a triple X to XL.

Congrats on the weight loss, that's awesome!!!

Oh, I see now, you've got a pic of the tag showing XXL.  Still, you may want to put it in text or in the title.

Looking at this I was thinking how cool it would be to have some sort of "Buckeye Exchange" where folks could sell their memorabilia and apparel to other Buckeye fans.  I know I have a heaping pile of great stuff that my wife wants me to get rid of.  I'd love to see it go to a great Buckeye home.

Damn, wish I still wore XXL. Got down to a Large now myself, so congrats fellow weight loser and sorry I can't help take them off your hands.

Congrats and well done on the hard work and new fitness.

Congrats on the weight loss! I've been through it too and know exactly what you're dealing with in regards to clothes just not fitting. It just looks odd to wear such big clothes when you've lost weight, even 20-30 lbs. Keep up the good work!

Wouldn't it be awesome if the next jacket owner went through a similar weight loss transformation and had to sell the coats next year? Brotherhood of the Weight Loss Pants Coats?

Hey, it's a way to follow in Woody's steps and pay it forward in a way. Maybe not monetarily, but at least in the idea of encouraging someone else to lose weight. Kind of a cool thought.

Thanks for the encouragement! Hoping i'll get a bite on the coats!

I asked my dad if he would be interested, and while he is very much so, i will have to see how he is with Columbia cut jackets. His arms are usually too big for the type of cut Columbia has so that's always been an issue

Thanks for passing the word along Keith!
