    I will be there with some friends. My wife family happens to live in one of the cities where the US team will be playing. Already have tickets to the games, working on booking flights this week. So excited.

    I just looked at the listing in question and I would suggest changing how you provide measurements for dress shirts in the future. You provide a sleeve measurement from the seam to the cuff, but shirt sleeves are usually measured from the center of the collar to the cuff. Without the yoke measurement, a buyer couldn't translate your measurements into what they would generally buy. Dont know if that was the issue, but it struck me. Also, 23"p2p does seem slim for a 16" neck.

    These do not excuse or explain the negative feedback, however. That is BS.

    Dumb question of the day, guy asks me about 6 questions about fit, so I told him I usually wear an XL in most things and when I tried it on it was tight, like I would expect a Large to be

    Hmm , alright. I thought they were nwt ? If u tried them on then their not new .. Also are you a skinny guy ? Or big guy like fat or muscle

    I just responded--if you really think everything you buy new in the store was never cried on, then you are naive

    and then I blocked him

    So a buyer approached and offered to pay me via Pay Pal for a garment. However, his shipping address is unverifiable. He recently moved to a new area, so his paypal adress is different than his new address.

    I just wanted to crosscheck with you guys to see that there's no red flags that I should be concerned with.

    Simple, he needs to take about 60 seconds and change his Paypal address.

    Is there a specific way to measure the front and rear rise on a pair of pants? I've only ever done outseam - inseam.

    I've always measured from the crotch seam to the top of the waist.

    Wouldn't that be relative to how the seat is designed for that set of pants? I'm almost certain Bill's Kahkis give more room for the ass than I need, even though they have the same waist/inseam/outseam as my uniqlos.

    That's what makes the rise so important, right? I usually just give front rise on eBay. If people want more, they'll ask. I thought about giving both, but I think it is a bit forboding.

    +1. I just give front rise (and tell them how I measure it, so there's no confusion).
