That's probably your vision thing acting up, monster. He said century, not country.

I'm a frequent shopper at MW. I get coupons EVERY DAY. pm me and I'll email you whatever coupons I get that fits your needs. I also get $25-35 coupons for filling out surveys. I just bought two suits last month, so I'm getting extra emails lately. Oh, and they are in the middle of their clearance sales.

thanks everyone. Didn't manage to take him shopping, Ended up at JC Penney by myself (already there buying more, longer jeans). One style choice, 4 colors. 3 attempts to get the right size jacket/something passable for Mr. Gorilla Arms (started at 14, ended up at 18 (he's 15, about 5'4 and 110lb). He plans to wear it to school tomorrow (they dress up on game days), will try to snap a pic but we all leave hella early and hella hurriedly

All I can say is, it's horrible. I remember being 13 or 14 and my mom taking me to try to get a suit at a downtown department store in my home town. I was too big for the biggest thing in the boy's department, and too small for the smallest thing in the men's department.

I have always had to shop in stores that have Big & tall because l have this huge bucket neck. My collar is a 22 at present . Thing about that. ... when you have a 22 collar . - - the shirt is a tent. If I can find it, the slim or athletic cut mitigates that to a degree ...

l windup having to 'pleat' my shirts when I tuck the back into my pantses .. -

You should look into getting some shirts tailored. It's not the luxury service it sounds like, in our area a ton of Hispanic women do it out of their home and charge very little, especially if you pay cash. You can't tell it's been done, the work will look as good or better than out of the factory.

(yes, $1. After 3 weeks, stuff gets reduced to 50c/piece. This suit was on the men's rack, but so small, no-one wanted it..... )
