    okay, okay, I'll check them out again. Though, the Black Fleece is not happening for me - longish arms.

    that is horrible. best wishes to all ya'll out in the NYC. hope you can all get back to normal soon.


    lolz @ sparkly panties.

    i had not bought BB OCBD in a while either, just got 3 and am very pleased. thick fabric, great fit (extra slim fit), and nice crisp look. if you have a BB card you can get free return shipping (assuming your postal worker is not a fucking idiot) and just send back if you no liek.

    also, i see above you are willing to try again, make sure you look at what OCBD you are getting. not all are made in USA.

    here is the link to USA USA USA USA USA USA ones,

    I recently purchased 6 esf BB OCBDs. Great shirts. The BF shirts are higher quality, but similar to you, my arms are too long for them, even for casual wear.

    Got a message from an in-house recruiter for a television network a few days ago on linked in. I responded with my resume and she got back to me quickly, telling me I was basically a perfect match and she'd send my info to the hiring manager right away. I looked at the official job posting, and aside from a preference for Spanish skills I had basically everything else in droves.
    Got a two line email response this morning saying that they decided to go with other candidates and could they please keep me on file. :confused:

    Just got myself an amazing deal on a £1200 chair for my bedroom. Realised that it is too wide to fit down my staircase (bedroom/cave is in the basement) so I look at taking the sides off.

    Turns out I need an Allen Key that is between 7/32" and 1/4" to get the sides off. I don't even think they make keys in that small an increment! Now my choices are to return the chair or find a way to McGuiver a way to open an Allen key that is 15/64" just to make it work.

    ? really it doesn't use a common sized allen key? maybe it uses a torx wrench that just looks like an allen key hole. maybe a metric sized allen key?

    Said recruiter was most likely not included on the email thread about the candidate who had been pre-selected before the job was even posted.

    Here's the best book I've seen on the subject of how to make yourself that candidate:

    BF shirts are terrific, but their sizing is downright bizarre. It's also unpredictable - they've changed their sizing several times during the life of the line. I have owned half a dozen of them, but am down to one (an amazing thick linen CBD), and I can only wear that one untucked as the vents come up too high for my long torso.

    I'm 100% sure I use my metric allen keys like 10 times as often as my standard ones...anything that bothers using allen bolts instead of screws usually goes metric.

    +100%

    On top of that, 99.9999999999% of the time if you're assembling or disassembling furniture it's the 6 mm key that you need.

    If you have a key that is slightly too small for the current need, wrap it with a turn or two of black electrical tape and it will be good enough for one or two uses.

    I think that may have to be the plan. Going to drop by the store tomorrow and see what they say. It isn't technically meant to be taken apart, so I have a sinking feeling that Lawrence may be right about the torx wrench.

    Yeah, I spend quite a lot of time in the basement because I've got the big TV and low light for cinema watching. Figure that if I'm going to relax, might as well do it properly. Just wish I could have picked up and Eames chair :drool:



    I tried one marked as 6mm but it slipped. Almost like 7mm might work. There is a chance that my cheap-ass free-with-furnature keys aren't made to the highest standards.


    I'm thinking that this is most likely, as I say, it doesn't look like the sides are meant to be removed so it makes sense that they are secured as solidly as possible. Luckily I have a few friends who are likely to have a torx wrench in their kit that I might be able to call on.

    Thanks for the advice gents, its nice to have guys who know what they're talking about to help.

    Metric is standard.
