    Sorry to hear that! Stuff like this is reason #1 to use Dwolla as much as possible IMO - the less done through Paypal, the better!

    I called in to have it taken off, they made me give them my checking account number again. (maybe worried I'll take the money and run?) The funny thing is paypals call center is in Omaha, so if you guys need to me to go create havoc, they are nearby :laugh: (that was a joke :hide: )

    If he got it on the super cheap (which he hasn't clarified yet), it would be appropriate here. People post cheap ebay finds all the time as well.

    If you got a great deal on it then IMO it fits here. I'll bet you didn't expect all this hassle over posting your briefcase.

    Thrift fit. I love this jacket and the pants, but I'm beginning to question pairing this tie with this ensemble (pants are very very dark navy, shirt is white/blue microstripe). Thoughts?

    Damn..not the wallpaper again! [​IMG]
    Maybe try a different knot than a FIH or at least put a dimple in that tie.
    This has been working for me, but the tie gets a bit short.

    Hey, is anyone here a size 14? I saw some very nice brown Coach loafers at Value Village, but I didn't want to pick them up because that size is a bit, um, large.

    i love the tie, actually. these pants seem to fit very well as well. shirt looks white in picture which probably works better for the tie. nicely done once again.

    must be an optical illusion or camera angle but jacket torso looks very long.
