    Just in: totally 80s vintage spongy-cow hipster, nice russet color, clean lines but massive wings on this sucka...14 1/4" at the armhole in a size XL. I'd post pix but they'd probably make you puke. Cost me $25.

    OK, one pic. This just hints at the breathtaking chord of the sleeves at full extension. Grain looks great here, but is actually pressed in with those fake scars every other inch or so, as if old bossy escaped while being BBQ'd alive. s-l1600.jpg

    Some people's waists could fit in that sleeve. Most people's thighs could.

    I had to double take when I read the title of this thread, maybe not helped by being at a beer festival this afternoon!

    One typo and a touch of the next door letter and this could have been a very different thread!

    Sorry, i’ll Get another beer!!...

    If THAT hole is 14 1/4", one is beyond all help, I'm afraid...:eek:

    I thought it was big shoulders in the 80's, a la TV's Dynasty!

    Basically, you wanted your outerwear to have the profile of a sticky bun with arms.
