1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Thanks Girardian! The RLPL coat was from Ebay seller bgermanio and was as teal at $207.50.

    Wow, do you know of a source where I could get EG's and JL's like yours at 10% of retail, similar to this RLPL deal.

    I can see it now "rnoldh's shoe damage"!

    Damn! $207 is not a steal, it's outright highway robbery! I have said it once and I'll say it again, you are one astute buyer aportnoy.

    btw, did you buy these trousers an extra pair if the other ones wear out? They look identical to the suit.

    Yup, they are one and the same fabric and now it's a RLPL suit for $325.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    While we're talking RLPL...here's a $3300 shearling I just nabbed for 90% off.

    I see. I assumed the other purchase was a suit and you'd bought extra trousers but buying the coat and pants separately to make a suit is even better - Bravo! And the NWT shearling for $350, fuggedaboutit, you rule aportnoy. Oustanding shopping man.

    Portnoy, in a grey shearling won't you look like Captain Cold, Mr Freeze or that COBRA winter bad guy?

    Yes, but that's the look I'm going for.

    Thanks EL, much appreciated. For whatever reason, these days on EBay, RLPL seems to be undervalued and in abundance. It works for me!

    Shipping was right too at $6.95!

    Don't you just hate it when a seller tries an exorbitant shipping rate for part of his true selling price!
