I can't decide on whether I want them or not...not like I don't have enough vertical stripes already!

I'd say the $98 retail price quoted is believable. BR's stuff is overpriced, for what it is, but it quickly gets marked down. Some of the shirts, I believe, do list for $98. But then they end up on the sale rack for $20-$35. Sometimes for less.

I don't buy much there, but sometimes I'll find a gem amid the Amjack. I got a great pair of gloves there last winter, along with a nice scarf, and I have a couple of shirts I like.

I like BR for basics, like polos that don't have any logo, and sometimes chinos, shorts, windbreakers and the like. Their undershirts are nice as well, just don't buy shoes there.

I'll try to avoid the American Jackass look if possible, but I have to say the pinks, blues, maroons, and colors in their shirts go great w/ my complexion.

The idea of actually stepping foot into a Big & Tall store makes me involuntarily shudder. Those stores tend to designed for those males who are the more bulbous members of society, not for guys who happen to be of large stature and in shape.

Oh, sorry I didn't know. I figured it catered to not just fat, but people who were big in general.

The Contrarian Troll. A sophisticated breed, Contrarian Trolls frequent boards whose predominant opinions are contrary to their own. A forum dominated by those who support firearms and knife rights, for example, will invariably be visited by Contrarian Trolls espousing their beliefs in the benefits of gun control. It is important to distinguish between dissenters and actual Contrarian Trolls, however; the Contrarian is not categorized as a troll because of his or her dissenting opinions, but due to the manner in which he or she behaves:

– Contrarian Warning Sign Number One: The most important indicator of a poster's Contrarian Troll status is his constant use of subtle and not-so-subtle insults, a technique intended to make people angry. Contrarians will resist the urge to be insulting at first, but as their post count increases, they become more and more abusive of those with whom they disagree. Most often they initiate the insults in the course of what has been a civil, if heated, debate to that point.

– Contrarian Warning Sign Number Two: Constant references to the forum membership as monolithic. "You guys are all just [descriptor]." "You're a lynch mob." "You all just want to ridicule anyone who disagrees with you."

– Contrarian Warning Sign Number Three: Intellectual dishonesty. This is only a mild indicator that is not limited to trolls, but Contrarians display it to a high degree. They will lie about things they've said, pull posts out of context in a manner that changes their meanings significantly, and generally ignore any points for which they have no ready answers.

– Contrarian Warning Sign Number Four: Accusing the accusers. When confronted with their trolling, trolls immediately respond that it is the accusers who are trolls (see Natural Predators below). Often the Contrarian will single out his most vocal opponent and claim that while he can respect his other opponents, this one in particular is beneath his notice.

– Contrarian Warning Sign Number Five: Attempts to condescend. Pursued by Troll Bashers (see Natural Predators below), the Contrarian will seek refuge in condescending remarks that repeatedly scorn his or her critics as beneath notice – all the while continuing to respond to them.

– Contrarian Warning Sign Number Six: One distinctive mark of Contrarian Trolls is that every thread in which they dissent quickly devolves into a debate about who is trolling whom. In the course of such a debate the Contrarian will display many of the other Warning Signs mentioned above.

Contrarian warning sign behaviors may be shared by other breeds

I prefer to think of myself as wiry rather than skinny.

Yeah, wiry is good. I also like "slim".

Gaunt is another good synomym but has kind of a negative connotation. I'm around 6'1- 6'2 and about 130 pounds and I'm here to claim my crown.

my ideal body type is that of a swimmers build -- not skinny but not overly huge. toned, slightly exaggerated v-shape torso -- but thats just my personal taste

models julien hedquist and will chalker (whose slighty bigger) have always had the ideal proportion in my mind.

The problem with Big & Tall stores is that they're generally more for the big-all-over guy than the tall. I'm fairly skinny for a tall guy and there's almost nothing in those stores that fits right.

I think Gaunts were zombies that ate corpses, if my recollection from the D&D days holds true.

Yeah, my sisters used to exclaim, "Hey, where'd he go?" when I turned sideways. Clever, girls.
