    I don't know that it's "common courtesy," but it is a nice gesture. I have, however, experienced instances of not having favors returned, which sucks. So, if you do it, do it with the expectation of getting nothing in return down the road, which avoids disappointments. Naming names isn't cool, of course, but let's just say this isn't a land of all butterflies and puppy dogs where Skittles fall from the sky before the rainbow comes out. Most folks, fortunately, are pretty good, though.

    Maybe the Charlie's Angel's director is branching out.

    can't say i blame them. They are a manufacturer not a retailer. They would likely tell you who they sell to, so you could buy a smaller quantity from them.

    I know, I know. I actually ventured out to the stores today to look for myself, and it's a virtual desert out there (granted, it's Monday, and the vultures take their pickings on Saturday. Plus it's summer).

    I have a different one saved that is exactly the same as this. Trust me, I liked the advice!

    Just picked up a cool Southwick Shawl Tuxedo. Medium Weight, 1 Button. Approximate guesstimated size 44R 38/30. Actually very close to fitting me, and probably will in a couple more weeks.

    No joke, my head exploded when I saw it on the rack, followed by a second larger explosion when I saw the size tag. :cloud:

    aren't you a sz38 or so? EU 52 = US 40, i'm sure you can get that thing tailored down to fit.

    I think it's beyond hope, I've tried it on a few times, the shoulders are too wide and its too long altogether.
