    Where can I find decent stuff in my size online?
    I like BB jackets, but they only have a few in 36R at any given time. Where can I buy decent jackets this size online?



    You wrote this. And I helped you. Why didn't you use the search function either? Your negativity is not needed! How about we all stay classy. Learn some manners. If you don't like a post, then ignore it. No one forced you to do anything.


    Are you the asshole who told me to check Nordstrom and Macys? Fuck you. I was very close to replying to your suggestion with hate mail, but decided that your post count didn't warrant my energy.

    Duh, hiya guys. I'm new here at this school but I really want to play with you all on the playground. Whose butt do I have to sniff, and who can I safely lift my leg on? [​IMG]

    I just want to say sorry for all the bad words. I've been drinking and watching the Rocky series of movies.

    Actually just apologizing for the bad words. The general spirit of the hatred remains in play.

Here is another post from you asking where something should be. You didn't say MTM or another form of tailoring. Maybe you should have been clear on what you wanted instead of trying to harass me.

    Publicity has inevitably lead to popularity, and the Styleforum user-base is now saturated with dipshits who refuse to use the search function. Cocksuckers who seem to think that talking like an English Dandy from BBC will earn them social status; after all, men's style equals cocksuckery, right?. So the question is: are these retards cramping this forum, and if so, what should be done about it?

    I see a problem with cocksuckery, but not not using the search function. Sometimes people like a bit of interaction, not to mention we don't all live here like you do.

    I'm pretty sure you're the second person to quote this post of mine in the past hour. I don't get the attack though... is there some obvious location where I can find 36R jackets online that are decently made? If so, please let me know. I am having a very hard time finding them.

    Whippersnapper!

    First, you posted in the wrong forum (should be in General Chat) and renewal is a part of any forum or listserv.

    Turnover is going to be inevitable, you come here to get advice on how to dress, brand reviews, whatever, reach a comfort level and then move on. Lots of members who don't post much anymore still read the forum, or come back to see reviews on a particular product/maker.

    What is it that you feel you are missing? Some SF insider/goon squad/iGent/ITG seal of approval which can only come from your self selected members?

    Are valuable members being "driven away" like Miss Daisy? Look, I agree that there have been some douchey things said to really great members (yachtie, dopey, rjmanbearpig and the list goes on) and more to members still here. But some of that is going to happen no matter what. People's lives change. Get married, have some kids, try to save the jobs of your employees during a really tough recession and sharing or answering questions on a clothing forum starts to look more like work than an escape.

    Why can't the members of this forum just surf porn and wank off like a normal guy when they're drunk? You have to come here and post this crap?

    I have gained much from participating in this forum. I do not offer advice to others because I recognize my naivity. I have received much helpful advice, which I have put into practice. I have always felt that Vox in particular has taken me under his wing. Its been almost like having acquiring a new father. Thanks Dad.
    Mostly, I come here because its an emotionally safe environment offered by the Senior members. The staff here tell me that if I stay on my medication, I can function normally and I am no longer a risk to anyone. P.S. Generally, I find the search function isn't very good. As a schizophrenic, I need to rely on search functions to find out if I've made any new posts. Most of the hits I get are for people selling stuff.

    +1 Well said. BTW, our sponsors (see above) carry a few suits in your size. Not many, but a few. Additionally you can look at B&S. Hit or miss there. 36 is usually not stocked at most stores. The smaller sizes usually end at 38. You need to check dimensions. It might be possible for you to fit into a "small" 38. A recent TAT 36 suit in B&S: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=198219

    There will always be noobs joining, that's the nature of having an open forum. But not only does a search function exist, so does the ignore. No need to react in such a vitriol manner really. Besides, the lack of responses will automatically turn the newbs away (cept maybe pingguo). Weren't some of you guys new to style at one point? People just want to learn and it seems like ego is getting in the way.
