    I am fat. You are not. So surely we are not the same size.

    I am not posing!! I told him I was in stitches. He was not impressed.

    Yup, Brian it was. Very nice, gave me all the measurements I asked for (shoulder seam to seam, pit to pit, waist across buttoned button, length BOC), and answered all questions patiently and clearly. They have changed the website now, I rechecked, but this morning it said clearly til 8/1. Oh well. Im still thinking on it. MF basically stole that.

    I had doubts until you took a good pic of it in the last post. Then it looked damn good. [​IMG]

    I love the crap out of it. I was just jet set on kopping at 280 tho. Also, I was home sick yesterday coughing my brains out with an allergy/asthma attack or I would have called them.

    Decent argument, not sure I agree with the first premise...but this just shows that your tailoring is well done. You look good, not fat.

    That's a good shout :nodding: Though if you can get rid, get rid!

    Doodals, just asking... I remember you calling me out for wearing a black stroller jacket. You, and others were quite right, that said you in the 'black closet' all along? :rotflmao:

    Although there's no denying that its happens, the amount of that type of fraud within American poverty programs is actually extremely small. Get mad at it if you want, but most of the people receiving that kind of support aren't doing anything wrong, and the programs are basically the difference between them being homeless and starving to death or not. Personally, I prefer to focus on the substantial benefits of the programs and to ignore the fraud, which will be present in any system, since they're all run by imperfect humans.

    LOL. Why am I whining about this when the damage done by Wall St. is much worse?!

    I do not remember. That black suit in the picture is from like 3 years ago...when I was like 160 lbs.

    As someone who had the honour of seeing him in person, though not in a full suit, he does carry himself VERY well [​IMG], even Mrs. Noodles complimented, "Why can't you dress more like him?!"
    I hope I didn't offend you with that [email protected] remark on WAYWRN.

    Tell her that's why you're spending time on SF so you can look good for her. Works for me.

    Why thanks you most kindly, Noodler. Tell the wife she gets lifetime discounts for saying that.

    I was not offended in the least. <3

    What do I do, what do I do with all this money?! [​IMG]

    Some people on SF marketplace just are weird. I hope to never do business again there.
