Nice, Reuben. You look right at home with patch pockets on your jacket!

We All Get Shorter As We Age, Research Confirms

You’re not just imagining it — you do get shorter as you get older, new research reveals.

Research has shown that most people shrink from age 30 to 70, with men getting about an inch shorter and women getting about two inches shorter, the Early Show reported. And when people hit age 80, men and women lose another inch on top of that.

After age 40, it’s not uncommon to start getting just a little bit shorter. But shrinking too much or too fast could be a sign of health problems, research shows.

The Wall Street Journal reports research that shows men age 70 or older who shrink more than 2 inches in two years are 54 percent more likely to break their hip bone than men who don’t shrink as much as fast. And for women, that increased fracture risk is 21 percent.

AARP also reported that men who, over a 20-year-period, lose at least 1.2 inches off their height have a 46 percent higher risk of suffering heart disease an a 64 percent higher risk of dying, compared with men who lose 1.2 inches over a 30- to 40-year time span.

The reason why people shrink as they age is because the little gel-like discs in your back get more and more squished with time, thereby making you shorter, the Early Show reported.

And as people age, bones may also shrink both in density and size, which could also add to the shrinkage, according to the Mayo Clinic.

To keep from getting too short too fast, avoid smoking cigarettes, drinking caffeine or alcohol, taking steroids and extreme dieting, the Wall Street Journal reported. Instead, eat healthily, get adequate vitamin D and calcium and exercise regularly.

And turns out, everyone shrinks a little bit each day, KidsHealth.org reported. That’s because water in the discs that are in the spine get more and more compressed throughout the day, causing people to be just a smidgen shorter at the end of the day than they were at the beginning of the day. However, whatever height is lost at the end of the day is regained after a night’s rest, KidsHealth.org reported

Today's the first day of Autumn. Here's my look and a little irrelevant verbiage about what changes take place between today and yesterday:

Image

White Flannel Blazer made by Tony Panico at J. Press – triple patch pockets, swelled edges, lapped seams, hook vent.

Image
Special 100th Anniversary J. Press buttons.

Image
Sam Hober Paisley tie, no name Silk/Cotton Pocket square, J. Press flap pocket, OCBD shirt.

Image
O'Connell's light weight, lofted flannel trousers.

Image
Allen Edmonds Shell Cordovan, Plain toe Bluchers (Leeds model).

I wear heavier looking clothing in Fall and Winter than I do in Summer and Spring. For example, I'm inclined to wear pinstripe shirts in the Summer and University striped shirts in the Winter. Correspondingly, I wear bolder colors and patterns in the Summer and calmer colors and patterns in the Winter. I have reasons for doing this... and you might too.

Around 102F here today.

At Scottsdale Fashion Square with one of the three other Styleforum members (I've found so far) who live in the Phoenix area.

I'm wearing a Brooks Brothers Madras jacket and blue PPBD shirt, Lands' End red heraldic tie, Leatherman blue and tan surcingle belt, Orvis trousers, and Allen-Edmonds Oakmont saddle shoes (made in 1984).

Roycru,

I'm happy your transition from So Cal to Arizona appears to be going so smoothly! Nice to see you paired up with another guy with a Madras sport coat. Still, one can't help but notice the difference in shoulders on the two jackets!

They call our style "Natural" for a reason! Great look.

Bill

Thank you Bill.

Since you mentioned natural shoulders, recently got a Brooks Brothers Madras jacket from the sixties from a very well known eBay seller. Asked him if the length in the listing (measured from the bottom of the collar) was correct. He confirmed it was correct.

However, the Madras jacket was two inches longer (measured from the bottom of the collar) than in the listing and too long for me. Since my friend is around two inches taller than me, gave it to him after lunch on Saturday.

(He likes to tuck the pocket flaps in.)
