Everybody has their own styles.

For shirts, here is generally how I judge sizes. I'm 5'11 145 ( from a naturally thinner family )

I wouldn't say I'm ripped, but I lift a bit, and I'm not scrawny in any way.


My general rule of thumb that I learned from a friend was to check where the seam on the shoulders comes in. It should line up directly over your shoulderblade, and shouldn't look slanted when wearing around. If it's straight, and over the top of your shoulder, it fits, if not, it's too big. If it's too far up on the shoulder, it's generally small. That rule has always worked really well for me.

I do notice that alot of the hiphop inspired clothes are supposed to be worn big. I respect that, but it just is kinda pointless. You can't walk around anywhere without tripping over your clothes, and I feel like i'm swimming in my shirt.

Another thing that's bad about wearing clothes that are too big, is that it generally makes you look fat and frumpy instead of normal. ( courtesy of my girlfriend..... who is incessant about how to dress... )

Okay, my dad discovered QVC a few years ago and has not looked back. Every year he has tons of boxes from QVC stacked in his office which means loads of crap for everyone! This year I received a Remote Control car... with glow in the dark wheels and tons of stickers on it.... It's like one of those cars you see at a booth in the middle of the mall where some bored ass clerk has to play with it over and over again. I'm 29 years old, what the fuck am I going to do with a flourescent green RC car? I gave it to my 5 year old Nephew who will "legally" be allowed to play with it when he turns 6.

Maybe this is normal for tOSU calenders...not sure...but I got a 2006 tOSU 12 month wall calender...and ALL of the guys pictures for each month weren't on the team in 2005...except for Malcom Jenkins. Which didn't make much sense to me. No Ted Ginn...no Troy Smith...no Pittman. A couple lineman that never even started.

I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

I don't think athletes who have NCAA eligibility are allowed on the calenders.... no sure why Jenkins would be on it.

i got a candle that is wood fire scented. did i mention i generally heat my home with wood heat? maybe its so i don't forget what a wood fire smells like in the summer... *ponders*

loky, i got a 06 calendar with dustin fox, lydell ross, and nuge on it. so i don't think thats the case. i just think whoever is making these calendars is really in the dark or just doesn't care. when i get home i think ill check and see if it says "designed and made in shang ho wang china" on the back.

right... all three (Fox, Ross, Nuge) are Pros and can be paid for the Calender. Ginn, Holmes, Smith etc can not. I always get OSU calenders and there is never a player from the current team on them.

  • Nothing real bad this year.

    Well, looks I chimed in a little too soon.

    My cousin drew my name and got me two hand held video games, Pitfall and some other piece of shit game. I mean it's like those little hand held games you get at Toys R Us for 12 year olds.

    I thought I'd opened the wrong present for awhile.

    "Thanks Kristen, maybe I can play those while I'm using my EZ Bake oven!" :roll1:

  • are you 5'4"? Because no one weighing 160# and of average height should need a Double xl. You will look ridiculous. The girlies will not be impressed, though they will make fun of you, that's guantanteed.

    Even I don't wear a 2xl. Stick to a size that fits, Fitted clothing is much sexier, and if you need a bit of xxl listen to Keith Anderson....

    Is there a reason we never see your face in any of your "self-portraits?"
