I’m new around here and very grateful for that list. I’m hoping to gently persuade my husband and sons (young men) to dress better and that’s a great start.

For what it's worth, I was finally inspired to become a paying subscriber after reading the truncated version of your last post in my inbox, so here's another vote for more content like that! I'm really enjoying your book, by the way.

You could do a list of what NOT to wear. Long time readers know them...but how you go into it is enjoyable and very entertaining.

This was my favorite book of 2021. In some ways it reminded of Trout Magic or The Snow Leopard. I give this book as a gift to people I like and look forward to reading whatever Mr. Coggins writes next.

Have followed your journeys on Instagram for quite sometime. After reading the your take on the essentials of a wardrobe I became a paying member of your tribe. I’ve enjoyed the archive already as well. Keep up the good work!

This may be something you've thought about and discarded but I'll put it out there anyway. When English author James Rebanks' last book was coming out (18 months ago I think) he made an arrangement with a couple of local bookstores in Cumbria, where he lives, that he would sign copies of books they had and readers could pre-order them direct from those bookstores and get a signed copy for no additional cost. The stores were absolutely inundated with orders not just from the UK but all over the world (I ordered one myself, especially since the book wasn't coming out for eight more months in the US). Perhaps that's something worth pursuing with Three Lives? As someone who has no local bookstore I'd be more than happy to order from someone else's, especially if I could get a signed copy to boot. I'm in the middle of reading The Optimist from the library and will need to get my own copy soon.
