For any anthropologists studying the site, the following is a good example of the male/pussy phenom that style forum not only seems to attract but perpetuate: Quote: Originally Posted by TwoStep I just recieved 2 Barba shirts that i ordered from shopthefinest.com On the order that i made they were size 39 / 15.5 When i tried one of them i noticed it felt a little to big around the neck.
