    Thanks for the reply, Rick.

    I have a question about sizing though. I bought three 15 1/2" shirts on Monday and the shoulder seam falls just a bit higher than my shoulder bone joint. The armscye is a tad tight on two of the shirts. How would I adjust the measurements of a 15 1/2" shirt to bring the shoulder seam lower in regards to a M2M shirt?

    The shoulder would need to be a bit wider and the armhole needs to be opened up.

    The 15.5 shirt shoulder is 18.25". Measure your shoulders from the shoulder joint to the other over the natural curve of your back.

    If you can give me a body bicep measurement, we can calculate an appropriate finished garment armhole.

    I've been making some youtube videos, as of late. I recently made one reviewing s & m shirts, if anyone cares to watch it here is the link:

    Just got the black dress belt and it's a nice one.

    The leather is very thick and doesn't have the veininess or corrected sheen of other belts.

    An absolute bargain.

    Hey Rick, if we missed the original SF code and used the Black Friday code instead, do you think I can contact CS and get the extra 5% credited back?

    Thanks!

    Yeah. Just quote the correct code in the email. Might take a few days for the refund to be posted. We are flooded with emails.

    Um, so what's the SF code that's better than the black Friday code?

    Great! Move people need to do these types of reviews. BTW - I think you pronounced the last part of their name as "key" as opposed to "kay". Just sayin'!

    Also, what size shirt do you wear? The fit was really good. Cheers.

    As I recall their was a discussion on here about pronunciation and that is how you say it. I might be wrong. Should have clarified first. I'm 15.5. 6' 180 lbs.

    Eh...you're probably right. Is that shirt the slim fit? I'm 6'2" 170 lbs and usually take a 15.5 -35 shirt, so I'm wondering if I'd go for a slim fit or contemporary.

    It's a slim fit.

    Depends on your chest size. I have to wear a 16 in the slim fit for it to fit my chest and i'm only 5'9''.
