Ach, I just looked at their web page and found out there's a store in DC on Wisconsin Ave. in Georgetown. Why didn't I know this when I still lived there?

I'm not really a VV type of guy, but my fraternity ordered navy fleece quarter-zips from them with our crest and letters on the breast and initials on the back collar. I've used it all winter. Very soft and comfy.

I don't think that's the reason people still dislike you.

if it wasn't for you trying to keep an actual discussion alive this would have fallen off the face of the earth a long time ago, you're not convincing anyone anymore
