    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice finds, Roderick Charles shirts are a step up from C.T./T.P.

    That 38R could be right up Brianpore's alley

    Ugghhh, I don't think there have been any decent size 12-13 monks in the last few hundred pages... Or at least for the 3-4 months I've been looking for them. :-(

    Our local GWs give you a week to return for store credit, but after that you are SOL

    Thanks, good to know!
    Thought it might be a little too big for you...

    Actually, I meant to add in my original post & forgot (sucks getting old...) there were 4 to 5 other BB suits, all from the same donor Im sure so size 38/39, a few were vintage 346 (which I understand is much better quality than today's 346) and a couple of vintage BB makers, mostly greys, there might of been a solid or two, didnt think there would be much interest, but if anyone is interested and wants me to proxy let me know- probably wouldnt be able to get there for a couple of days though.....

    Donate them and ask for a receipt for it, then fill it out as a $100 pair of jeans you donated. In front of her.
