    Would you be so kind to post a picture showing the calf tongue on the shell? I have seen that on lesser quality shell like Stuart McQuire, Hanover, etc..., but never on Florsheim Imperial or Royal Imperial LWB.

    It's probably an XL. In my experience the America's Thrift Stores in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa usually guess big on shirts without tags. They are also really bad at guess shoes sizes.

    What does a trad girlfriend look like?

    I'll echo the two above. When I think of trad I think of respect and modesty both male and female. As a mostly male forum, I think we should respect women and promote modesty from women. Think of the members struggling with pornography, who spend their idle internet time on this forum...

    I think it is important for newer members to look at the history of this thread concerning pricing. I have seen a couple post lately that are priced higher than eBay wish pricing. Think of it this way, if you want higher prices for your items list them on eBay. If you have something that you...
