    Vanda, I bet. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]They're building an underground garage at work and they're drilling into the foundation right beneath me for the next 4 weeks. [​IMG] I am on the 3rd floor and feel sorry for the people down below me. I have rented out a laptop and I am moving somewhere else. [​IMG]

    Do a double loop and you shouldn't have to.

    This made me laugh. Most of the time, I don't even know why my 2 year old is upset.

    Or just email them and see if they'll make you a shorter tie. They're usually happy to do it for a reasonable upcharge.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear, It's seemingly too short for me. If a tie isn't long enough to reach the loophole of the tie, I tuck it into my shirt between buttons around the chest area. It's not my favorite move but it works in a pinch. I will check with them about increased lengths though. Thanks.

    Vanda do customisations for a small surcharge, can't say how much at the moment, no issues. Mine are usually 3 3/8x59".

    I browsed thru the casual thread and have to say, I just don't get why some get like 40+ thumbs up. Let me remind you that I am in no way trying to bash the thread. I am only pointing out that some are way too fashion forward for me that I just don't get why some are good fits. Anyone share this opinion?

    The MC casual thread? Can't be. I don't remember seeing any 40+ fits. Are you talking about the SWD WAYWRN?

    Greetings, fellow Noodlers.

    I'm X posting from NMWA thread, cuz I know how good natured and helpful you (mostly) are:

    Quick question for those of you with Inglese and/or Camoshita dress shirts: have you noticed any notable shrinkage in collar or sleeve length after conventional washing, or does no one here do this? My goal is to achieve a bit of shrinkage in these areas through conventional wash & dry (though hopefully little in body/shoulders). Following that process I would hand wash going forward.

    Is conventional machine wash & dry not recommended for either of these even if it's only once or twice?
