    I was under the impression it was a round up of stuff they find on their searches. Is this going to be like finding out about Santa?

    Well, maybe I'll give it another chance since you guys feel pretty good about it.

    Meanwhile...what'd I miss? Brian? You get tapped for a higher calling over on B&S?

    Um...congrats?

    Thanks, thought it might have been mismarked, but comes out as a 44-45R.

    Really nice pattern.

    +1 It's just stuff the guys who run the site find on ebay and slap it up there. I don't think there is any kind of submitted for your consideration.

    LOL, but maybe not. Just remember to make the biggest decisions first! Anyone catch that NYT Magazine article on decision exhaustion (or something) awhile back? Apparently, the more choices we are forced to make per day actually, physically tires out your brain (and possibly depletes it of something, possibly glucose) -- and consequently, by the time retailers have tired us out on a thousand small, monetarily insignificant choices (like color, length, texture, or whatnot), consumers are much more likely to get steamrolled and take the sellers' advice on much costlier suggestions, always placed at the end.

    Suitmakers have apparently always known this, but it was interesting to see the folklore backed-up by recent science. (Even though I can't really remember or explain it).
    :foo:



    @Brianpore: RLPL black wool pants are tagged 34 (IT?), but measure a size 31.

    I'm no doctor, but I'd guess half an inch too short. [​IMG]
