    funny story about the full Florian method. At the Rolling Stones concert I went in July, one of my buddies was slapped in the face by a moron from Vermont (because he peed 8/9 feet next to him). My friend then proceeded (to stop peeing and) grabbing me to act as his bouncer. I told the guy if he did that again I'd beat the shit out of him. My friend finished peeing and bought me beers for the rest of the night [​IMG][​IMG] The method works sometimes :p

    Are you referring to "the method" to remove pee stains from pleated Zanella's?

    You're a big guy - remember that Zegna linen shirt you asked me about? It's tagged XLT on the shirt (and was tagged XXL on the price tag itself) but it measures:
    Pit to pit: 27.75"
    Sleeve from shoulder seam: 26.75"
    Length from collar seam to bottom: 36.5"
    Shoulders seam to seam: 23"
    ...that seems really goddam big to be an XLT. What size do you wear / how much bigger do you think this really is?

    i better send it to spoo, then...i can't deal with "tagged size is _ but measures as _" and still accept returns from goons who do not know their size.

    Thanks guys! Well, prof, if you're interested, it's available at cost (was from NMLC, NWT) plus shipping. Couple pics - have more if desired - feel free to take it to PM if so:

    Cost was $59. 100% linen. Made in Romania.
