I'm resurrecting this thread only because I picked up a lot of their stuff for a trip through India and the Middle East. Ended up returning a lot of it, and it's maddening as hell because their sizing is so inconsistent that you never know what you order is going to fit, and they sell out so fast there's very little hope of an exchange for a different size. But I have a couple pairs of pants and a shirt that are going to be torture tested on a trek through some shitty...
This thread is great. Looking forward to the next installment

I'm not feeling it. None of the weirdness of S1, and without that it's just an extra noir-y cop show. Actually I think the show is really about Colin Farrell's mustache.
I guess I probably shouldn't mention I have an associate producer credit on that show....
