Brilliant - the added implication that this model with a perfect bod would have been expected to perform manual labor around the house tops it off. I have bought several ridiculous and non-fitting ebay items, usually based on the naive hope that jacket sleeves can be extended by 2 inches, which they only can some of the time, and often not when the seller says they can. Ebay is too addictive. They should have support groups and the like. On the other hand, knowing a good tailor does make it easier to get things on ebay.
