    Classic American response. They believe an undershirt is supposed to be a repository for sweat pooling through the armpits.

    They have some on their website, but not very good quality pics. Saw some nice light blue hopsacks though.

    Their website keeps asking what country I live in. So annoying.

    If it fits and you like it, being on sale is a nice bonus. If you buy only because it is on sale, the thing usually sits in the back of your closet and never gets worn. The latter scenario is the problem; former is just smart shopping.

    Tell that to my wife! :)

    @The Noodles, anything goes in GNAT, except for bare feet.
    Nice fit though, I see no pear.

    Noodles...clean your mirror, put some shoes on for God's sake, and get a hair cut. Oh, the suit looks great.

    And do you have hobbit feet?
