    My wife is the best...

    I'm a big fan of the TV series How I Met Your Mother and I always envied Marshall from that show for his vintage Kawasaki Racing shirt.

    My daughters and wife have tried for months to find this or a similar one in eBay or somewhere else but never found it.

    So my wife took the best still shot she could find of this shirt and experimented with a shirt shop nearby to come up with a reproduction.
    We have our tenth anniversary tomorrow and she couldn't wait to surprise me with this so I got it today already.

    It is almost perfect to me - the only (negligible to me) difference is that the original has twin stripes at the sleeves.
    I am a happy boy.

    Mainland Europe 4,89EUR.

    This is the same wife who bought you Gypsy?
    Does she have an unattached sister who isn't too fussy about a bloke's looks, weight, lack of youth, finances, personal hygiene, intelligence and social skills?

    Re: My wife is the best...

    Thank you guys.

    Davy, she has two sisters - one is even living in GB (in the north of London). If one should separate from her hubby, I'll let you know.

    If there is interest in this shirt, I would organize a group buy and collect orders. I think it would be the best (considering shipping costs) to send them in one pack to the US and you guys have them distributed over there.
    I will have to get a quote on the shipping costs when I know how many need to be sent.

    In ole Europe shipping separately would make no difference I guess. To Ireland I paid 10€ for shipping Brian's shirt.

    The shirts are 30€ each. I have an XL which fits good (European XL). I can measure my shoulders, chest etc. so you have an indication of what you would need.
    Godspeed Jaco. You're missed down here mate.

    I would like one too Heino! An XL one..
    You have a wife that's very good! A keeper for sure but you already know that.
    Let me know what the costs will be for me will you?

    Have a nice sunday!

    Re: My wife is the best...

    I got you covered Coert.
    The shirt will be 30€, I will get you a quote for the shipping soon.
    I will wait and gather orders. Maybe I can negotiate a better price when we have the shop make several shirts but I can't promise.

    For reference, my measurements (as I said, XL fits nicely for me):
    • Shoulders - 124cm
    • Chest - 107cm
    • Belly (bumblebee waist ) - 103cm

    Orders will be listed in the first post.

    Edit: Shipping on mainland Europe is 4,89€.

    Just a small thing. We don't make large gifts on these occasions - more little symbolic stuff. Actually my gift was the idea of my eldest daughter Carolin who allowed me to sell it for my own idea.

    I had some shots of Jasmina and me that Carolin took during our last holiday on Mallorca printed on canvas.

    I would have to check whether they make 3x or 4x first. You know, Europeans are tiny...
    I'll get back to you on this.

    You're the man Gordon.

    Regarding sizes - the largest they have is 3XL. Maybe you can verify your needed size by this chart I found:

    Re: My wife is the best...

    Thanks guys.

    Group buy will end at the end of this month and then I will wrap it up and see how many I have to order.
    I will also be able to tell the shipping costs to the US. If it is too high, of course you guys can still retreat from your order.

    @the-atc-kid
    Will you try the 3XL size? Then I would order one for you.

    Re: My wife is the best...

    Yes sir! I will try it.

    When it doesn't fit, I will donate it to Steve516. I have done this before. Pretty sure he has 3 or 4 now. We are of somewhat similar builds, but he is skinnier. Of course, I'm better looking and carry all of my weight in the genital area.

    I buy my tee's at www.BigDogs.com that way it's a guaranteed fit. I think they go up to like 7XL!


    I really like the two arm stripes.... any chance you can get them to "correct" it with a large order? Either way, they're sweet!
