No idea about the rest of what happened, but I bought some monkstraps from him, and he emailed me to let me know they are on their way. Don't know what happened, but for now I'll take him at his word. Seemed gentlemanly enough, and glad he emailed me. If trouble ensues, will let you know, though!
not sure what got your panties in a twist esq, but i was referring to the sizing. measurements of 40" for the chest and 31" for the waist correspond to a typical 38.
suit is beautiful nonetheless, just all my hopes were dashed once i read the measurements.
