You must have talked to the owner, Brian. I had emailed him about the jacket. Didn't realize the website said the sale was through today...would have thought that meant the discount was good until today. Anyway, @Monkeyface
got a great deal. For me, probably a good thing it is not possible to buy it!

I am fat. You are not. So surely we are not the same size.

I am not posing!! I told him I was in stitches. He was not impressed.

Yup, Brian it was. Very nice, gave me all the measurements I asked for (shoulder seam to seam, pit to pit, waist across buttoned button, length BOC), and answered all questions patiently and clearly. They have changed the website now, I rechecked, but this morning it said clearly til 8/1. Oh well. Im still thinking on it. MF basically stole that.

I had doubts until you took a good pic of it in the last post. Then it looked damn good. :satisfied:

This thread promotes being diligent, but when it's such a good deal you're probably better off pulling the trigger straight away than asking lots of questions and doubting. You can probably sell it at cost to someone else. I suppose if you're having doubts it's probably not the right item for you anyway.

I love the crap out of it. I was just jet set on kopping at 280 tho. Also, I was home sick yesterday coughing my brains out with an allergy/asthma attack or I would have called them.

Decent argument, not sure I agree with the first premise...but this just shows that your tailoring is well done. You look good, not fat.

As I transition from 38R to 40R, I am cleaning out my closet. One of the victims of this transition is this RLBL suit. From my encounters on SF market, I have gotten offers between $300 ~ $400. I bought these at full retail :brick:. Should I let these go at such $#!TTIE prices or just keep them as beaters? 

 

EDIT: I have a black one (pictured) and a navy one (not pictured).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Keep the navy in your office for emergencies.

That's a good shout nod[1].gif Though if you can get rid, get rid!

Doodals, just asking... I remember you calling me out for wearing a black stroller jacket. You, and others were quite right, that said you in the 'black closet' all along? rotflmao.gif

Then with that after tax money, I have to pay sales tax when I eat at restaurants or buy stuff at stores.

Also with that after tax money, I have to pay real estate tax and personal property tax (car). 

 

...and don't even get me started on Social Security. I'll never get a penny of it but I am paying for it.

 

Here's what ticks me off even more.

I have a friend, bless his soul, who gets food stamp credit cards, money for his baby (food & diapers). 

What's maddening is that he and his employer has agreed to pay everything off the books (in cash - illegal) and he gets to report an income well below what he gets in cash. 

Doesn't pay income tax, doesn't pay social, etc. 

Just a big effing crack in the system and people are probably abusing the heck out of this!

Although there's no denying that its happens, the amount of that type of fraud within American poverty programs is actually extremely small. Get mad at it if you want, but most of the people receiving that kind of support aren't doing anything wrong, and the programs are basically the difference between them being homeless and starving to death or not. Personally, I prefer to focus on the substantial benefits of the programs and to ignore the fraud, which will be present in any system, since they're all run by imperfect humans.

LOL. Why am I whining about this when the damage done by Wall St. is much worse?!

I hope I didn't offend you with that smart@ss remark on WAYWRN.

Tell her that's why you're spending time on SF so you can look good for her. Works for me.

Why thanks you most kindly, Noodler. Tell the wife she gets lifetime discounts for saying that.

I was not offended in the least. <3
