no, I'm saying that's what it says on the label:
...better late than never: I was in Shanghai in October and had three shirts made at Eleganza Uomo. Price, if I remember rightly, was RMB 1,000 for all three. Measurements Wednesday afternoon, fitting Thursday or Friday (don't remember), collection Saturday afternoon. I can't take pictures of the other two shirts right now as they are in the other flat. I am quite pleased overall for a first effort. I'd give both fit and workmanship a B+, relative to what I've...

As it turns out, the parcel was shipped with EMS. Apparently, EMS has a private-sector partner in Germany by the name of GDSK, which "intercepts" all incoming EMS parcels from China. This firm now wants a whopping 25,59 euros "service fee" before they send on the parcel ON TOP of the shipping...
late reply... Thanks for the heads-up on Eleganza Uomo, JLibourel. I'll be in Shanghai again for a few days next week.

If I have anything made, I'll report back.
Z by Costa-Gavras from 1969 - absolutely brilliant film. Tremors, maybe? Definitely underrated where I live, maybe less so in the US...

You are either being deliberately obtuse or you're really just a moron. I don't know which is worse. "realise" is a British English spelling of American English "realize". "Chalk full" is not an AE spelling of BE "chock-full", it's just false. Try relying less on your spell-check plug-in...

If you take particular elements of that comfort however, you do see certain things to be certain ways in some places. One of the largest issues is space. Personal dwellings in Europe and often much of the world ie Japan, etc are on average far smaller than average American dwellings. The answer I got from a lot of people in Europe...
