    Although it is unquestionably nice to allow them to do that, as long as you keep one of them, it is really the only way to go about doing these things. Out of my 37 some odd orders, I have done this around 5 times--usually I buy one, two, even three sizes, and return the ones that don't fit. If you don't know your size in a ~$2,000 suit, it behooves you to order them in your usual "sizes," and just return the one that doesn't fit. Wait too long, and they will be sold out (as evidenced by the fact that there are zero Formosas in a size 50).

    Well, that's good to hear you're an L since we are similar sizes. I just got shipping confirmation for mine!

    Well, for example...

    I have strange weigh fluctuation issues. On average, per year, I fluctuate between 25-35 lbs. Currently, I am ~165 lbs, but at this time last year, I was ~200 lbs. A year before that, I was about 175lbs. Plus, there are some variances among brands. These are just personal issues, and honestly, I would rather be safe than have my OCD self consistently wondering whether a different size would fit me better.

    Ahh that makes more sense then. As long as you are actually purchasing one of the items. If you are one of those 'purchase 10 items return all 10'...... then no sympathy.

    Ha, I think I may be in the running for the most NMWA purchases (top 10?), at least for those who post here :D

    I just checked and I am embarrassed at how many items I have ordered from NMWA. I am stepping away from the computer and going to a support session.

    Greg, did you say we're still waiting on other Ingleses or did I misinterpret that for Portuguese Flannels going up?
