I hope it's ok for affiliates to post ongoing GMTOs in this thread. If not, just lmk and I am happy to remove. I'm collecting orders for two GMTOs of Formosa sport coats through No Man Walks Alone:Moonbeam: [[SPOILER]] Hemp/Wool Mix: [[SPOILER]] We need a few more orders on each to make them happen. I am in on both. PM me if you're interested in joining.
