    I got a nice litho from housing works thrift in NYC, via their online auctions. The end price was more than fair and they charged zilch for shipping, and the way it was packed it must have cost like $40 to ship it flat. Only thing I've gotten from them, though - I'm sure it's spendy in there otherwise.

    Returning isn't an option unfortunately, but I'll take a $12 hit as a lesson well learned. Currently attempting to read as much of this thread as possible, gonna need more beers....

    Well, VirtruviusR, from the looks of the pic, that Pink shirt looks way too small for you. When you fold the cuff back up in half, the end of the folded cuff looks like it will be well above your watch. You don't just put cufflinks in the bottom set of cuffholes -- rather a single cufflink is put through the four cuffholes (both sets) when the cuff is folded back onto itself.

    I noticed that that after I took the pic as well, I think its because it is really bunched up at my elbow, not sure. Wearing it now, it seems to fit appropriately , though a touch short (which is often the case for me -__- if I want the body to fit even close to how it should the sleeves are almost always short). I know I'm probably coming off as a huuuuuge noob [​IMG], but I do know that the cuff is supposed to be folded over and the cufflink inserted into both holes in the cuff on a shirt with french cuffs.

    I think the best solution to my fit woes is to just hit the gym MUCH HARDER lol....

    A while back, some awesome guys on this forum helped me out in a time of need by sending me their

    and wouldn't take a cent from me, even to cover shipping!


    Well folks, it looks like I'll never
    be able to pay it back so welcome to the ...

    Yeah, it's got a cracked button on the cuff but there's extras attached to the shirt tail!

    Looks like a pull but I think it's just the linen. A "knitpicker" should pull it back nicely.

    That's right...XL bay-bee! (Although this one might need to be measured. It seems a bit smaller than the Paul & Shark)

    [​IMG]
    It feels a bit heavier than a sport shirt but not quite full on flannel.

    Come a bit closer...

    If you are a demonstrably regular poster in this thread (based entirely on my personal opinion of you and your posts)
    and you think either or both of these shirts are for you, send me a PM calling dibs.
    Ask any questions about the shirts, which I'll answer to the best of my ability and then after I get your shipping address

    Nothing crazy today, but I'm satisfied. Apparently it was hoodie day . Lululemon and Y3 are keepers. Was actually going to go out and blow $100 on a Lululemon hoodie but then found this today. It was fate. Love this stuff!

    Happy, but not thrilled, although I love winning ebay auction (who dosent). Been wanting a pair of Stand's but already have a pair of Walnut Sanfords [​IMG]. Watching that damn ebay count down got to me and I knew I could win them as the other two guys were bidding $1 over $1 [​IMG]

    Won the Strands by .07, lucky lucky, but you always got to end your bid with a few cents over the full dollar. Has one me countless auction by only a few pennies [​IMG]

    Brag? Judge me not. But I was a bit surprised that after less than a day, a lowly tie I posted last night has received $10 more than the starting bid. I wonder if the bidders know they can get it on a certain Republican website (I mean no disrespect) NWT for $37?
