This is a response to VC 33 Holly 17 ("XXL")...


No, there was not a discussion of your size. We ALL received large shirts. My apologies for not including a note of explanation with the shirt.

The trophy shop where I ordered the shirts (I think they were actually called Acme) was run by a diminutive Indonesian couple who were apparently devoted to the fashion needs of Lilliputian bowlers. Their small shirts were about the size of a glove.

So even the sleekest and sveltest of Archipelagoans received a large shirt. Mine was extra large and several Archipelagoans received an XXL (since these were men's shirts, I was told to allow extra room for those of the feminine persuasion). My theory in estimating sizes was that bowling shirts SHOULD be larger than the bowlers they enshrine. They should be large and loose and free-flowing like bright red Muumuus.

Anyway, I'm glad you liked it. Have you worn it in public yet?
