    You beat me to it. The shirts deserve better, even if their quality is unknowable.

    But how can we judge, when the quality of even the hangers is unknowable?

    As to your picture, the shirts look great. But it's impossible to tell from a picture at that distance. How can we judge fabric, feel, etc.?


    Just touch the screen. After all, it's a Kabbaz.

    Manton has become quite the instigator in the past few months.

    You are conspicuous by your absence.

    Some of us feel you are a shill for the esteemed Ms. Anna Matuozzo, as is a certain unnamed young law student.

    But there are many Kabbaz shills, so there's no injustice.

    I am a shill only for myself and my own inanity.

    How can I know those are Kabbaz shirts? The cheap paper covered hangers seem deliberately used to hide the interior label.

    That is the interior label. I know - tacky tacky tacky.

    So what?

    Use the closest poll selection, "who cares?" would work.

    I did before I posted. My point is that in five pages, there's scarcely even a tidbit of useful information. If Manton had any interest at all in actually discussing the relative merits of Kabbaz shirts (which might actually be a productive and informative discussion for a change), he would approach the subject as something other than blatant trolling.

    The fact is that every discussion of Kabbaz shirts devolves into a petty political shitstorm with an overwhelming dearth of objective information.

    In this case, "so what?" is subtly different from "who cares?".

    Have to agree. No closeup shots or erudite discussion of the shirt construction.

    I thought that the price per shirt was $600. That would have made those three shirts exactly a month's rent for me. At $750 a shirt, they also include a good part of the groceries. Manton, when the revolution comes, I will not be able to save you. Sorry in advance.

    Well, subtly different except for the size.

    Done that, at length.

    Well, one of the reasons I bailed as a client was the price increase. As I said before, I never expected to get very many at the old price; at the new price, forget it.
