    Lacking in girth and stature

    Just ordered a couple of the 50+ Jerseys and I am afraid it took a while to get the order placed. First of all the wife had originally registered with pay pal- But the Password she remembered was not the one that paypal wanted. So next stage is to change the password. Completely unsuccessful but as My E-Mail address already has a pay pal account registered to it- I cannot register another.

    So---- Phone my daughter up and do it on her account- Eventually this was done and Checking later- There is my order sitting with Corlew so 50+ has gone international.

    There is a slight problem though. I am quite a small person. 5'6" short and around 145 to 150 lbs, chest of 36" and waist of 32"- but the bit in between may be a bit bigger if I don't hold it in----Hence the ordering of Club cut. So there I am with an order for a S/S in XS and a L/S in S.

    Now I know the Americans build bigger and better than those of us over here- But the sizing I have ordered seems ridiculous. Small and Extra small- in comparison to the other sizes ordered Makes for some really big lads over there. I would post a picture of me -but a Small bloke on a Small bike looks the same as a Large lad on a Large bike or some Monsters on a Monster bike.

    I'll have to come up with something you can relate to on my sizing- Garage door won't work as I take it your Garage doors are larger for your Large Pontiacs and Cadilacs. They would not even fit on my drive Let alone in the garage. So I will have to find someway to conform to the rest of you. I might have to admit defeat and Supersize myself but not at McD's. Extra pie on the rides in Future and Have to find a few more bakers for the Buns and cakes.

    I'm 150 and 5'7"
    I got a medium and it fits well, but is what I'd call not loose at all.
    Consider changing your size....

    I can't buy anything using pay pal for all the reasons you mention +. We cant do this or that, your limit is $3500 as of a credit rating. My credit is as clean as clean could be and they say it's not. I say if I'm that big of a risk don't sign me up. All of sudden my credit is the best they ever saw, I said you people need me more than I need you, good-by. They started to send e-mails now I told them to not bother me.
