1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

Don't make Etro angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.

    Behold: ETRO

    ETRO, for the uninitiated, is the emotional and impulsive alter ego of the withdrawn and reserved Luigi Borrelli. He appeared shortly after Luigi was accidentally exposed to the blast of a test detonation of a special fabric he invented for the Italian government. Subsequently, Luigi will involuntarily transform into ETRO, depicted as a giant, colorful, humanoid shirt leading to extreme complications in Luigi's life.

    Although ETRO's coloration has varied throughout history, his most consistent shade is bad-ass paisley. As ETRO, Luigi is capable of significant feats of strength and unparalleled acts of retail value, the magnitude of which increases in direct proportion to his pattern's flamboyancy. Strong emotions such as anger, terror and grief are also triggers for forcing Luigi's transformation into ETRO.

    ETRO is pictured here in size 40 (but he fits like a Large -- check measurements below)

    Be afraid. Be very afraid. ​

    MEASUREMENTS


    Shoulders: 18.5"
    P2P: 24"
    Sleeve: 25" from shoulder seam to end of cuff (along the outside of the sleeve) or
    25.3" from shoulder seam to center of cuff




    FABRIC / CONDITION

    Made of very fine, thin cotton, with 4% elastane for a bit of give. It's not see-through or anything, but it is thinner than an OCBD, and smoother, easily foldable. The only issue I can ID is mildl wrinkling, comparable to that of a rose petal. (See pics). Solid used condition.

    Your descriptions are approaching Synthese levels.

    Shirt is pretty great. If it were smaller I'm sure Uncontrol (he still around?) would buy it.

    Damn you for not being a 38. I loved this shirt when it first came out and was furious when I could not get it in my size. Good luck on the sale.

    I don't mean to make ETRO angry. I'd just like to know if ETRO has measurements and a condition report on ETRO shirt. Please and thank you.

    Thanks! :D



    I agree, Synthese is very talented. This, I'm afraid, was just lifted from Wikipedia. :embar:

    If you check the WAYWT thread, you'll see Uncontrol has himself undergone a transformation into BRAD-T. :teach:



    Good call. Updated!

    Mind blown, etc. It's for this reason I don't check WAYWT (actually many other reasons).

    He will always be Uncontrol in our hearts!
