    JR: Looking forward to seeing the fit pictures and hearing about your experience in getting fitted. I need to order another suit and will either get another MTM from Kent Wang or try these guys out. Also curious to hear your thoughts on the quality of the basic fabric you selected.

    Deodorant? Or anti-perspirant? It's usually the latter which leads to pit stains. I switched to deodorant several years ago, and the stains went away.

    Be thankful it wasn't the PNP (Pointy Nipple Police). You could've been in some deep shit.

    I don't think that's anything to be proud of. For whatever reasons, the elders here took a liking to you, but dayum, son, you might have been the thickest-skulled noob SF has ever seen...

    Apparently you haven't heard of a fellow by the name of ridethecliche. Rudals on the other hand, while slow to start, has shown major improvement and clearly listens to the solid (mostly) advice in this thread.

    rudlas is the shit. you know why? because unlike a thousand other thick skulled fuck heads here, he is open to learning. he doesnt blindly defend his bad choices, he is open to listening, and he knows where to stand his ground. that is why he is well liked.

    rudals should be very proud to have been the impetus of this great thread. and anyone who has beef with rudals can eat my taint sweat.

    A couple of reasons:

    - His meltdowns were so over the top they became disturbingly endearing.

    - He wasn't actually very thick skulled. Just very bad at applying advice. There are a lot of folks who won't even hear advice, much less try applying it.

    And just to head this one off, I don't think that Evolve was trying to beef with Rudals. The internet is a wonderful place for an offhand remark to be construed as more than it was intended to be. So please, Evolve, don't go to Maryland and inquire with Stitchy just how one goes about eating a liquid.
