If I said that, it would have to have been a long time ago. I got a few more, and have stopped. Possibly forever, but never say never.

But it's impossible to tell from a picture at that distance. How can we judge fabric, feel, etc.?
Well, this would not be a particularly good measure of the quality of the shirtmaker, because in principle any maker can get any fabric.

Last questions. Someone said something about a $600 shirt. Aren't Kabbaz shirts closer to $1000?
The base price is now $750, but I'm sure they go up to $1,000 or more. I never ordered 200s (his most expensive cloth). I ordered one 170s.

He was on earlier, so he might just be out doing something fun on a Saturday.

As a customer of the Kabbaz Travel Agency, I recommend his products.

Since then, they have apparently been telling a phony version of the story to others, who choose to reference that with allusions to dark motives rather than give any specifics. FYI, I have laid out all the specifics of my complaint in the past and would do so again if anyone cared.

It's not really covering up if the little white lies are so boldfaced that they'd be funny if they weren't intended seriously.

My experience was similar to Manton's and Panzer's. I can tell you for certain that they have an outstanding complaint with the BBB that they haven't responded to. I've detailed my problems with them elsewhere.

Paris makes a good shirt. The fit was always a little quirky and their default (like a number of other makers) is for a rather blousy shirt. But the construction is very good, their occasional use of plastic buttons notwithstanding.

Good to have you back.

Eh, it's just a communications problem. That is, you didn't understand that when they communicated inacurate information, you were supposed to eat it, communicate aquiesence, and give them more money.

Squirrelled? The shame...

Yeah. I can understand squirrelling my two ancilary threads. But the original should have stayed, I think.

You know what happens to mutineers? We chain them to a cannonball and send them down to see Davy Jones.

The original was almost a study in the genesis of flame wars on the Net. I ought to be framed, not hidden beneath a bushel. So, who's your dry cleaner?

Well, it was no worse than the black suit thread, and that's still around.

That's because you're the victim of a vast internet chat board conspiracy to eliminate all talent.

You're easily amused. As Christopher Guest might say, there's a fine line between classic and stupid.

All we know is that you mind-control a lot of people.

And that Alex made a pact with the devil.
