I would like to buy a new flannel shirt. Who makes a good flannel shirt? Not necessarily the most expensive.

I'm tall with long arms and one problem I have had with flannel shirts is the sleeves are to short.

The best one I've ever had was from LL Bean.

yep. bean or lands' end. 

You need to start looking for whatever brand puts the shirts out in proper sizes.  In the uS, that would be 15x33, 12-1/2 x 34, etc.  Collar x sleeve length.  Buying shirts sized in the S-M-L-XL format is a crapshoot as far as fit is concerned.

Your not going to find that for flannel shirts only dress shirts.

Pendleton is a brand I have used for years, but until recently I have not seen flannel shirts on their website. If they happened to stop producing them, I would advise looking at thrift shops.

I also posted this question in the Intro section by mistake and received this reply:

Pendleton makes some fine flannel shirts:

If you're on a tighter budget, I saw some nice ones this afternoon at Sears.

Buckle down and buy a wool Pendleton shirt. They're life-long investments. I own some from the early 70s!

So Long Men's Barbers

In my modest little town of 12,000, which has 22,000+ when college is in session, we have two barbers. One is mostly retired and the other can hardly stand up half a day.The State of Illinois saw to it to regulate barbers and hairdressers. Excuse me... cosmetologists. A man, or woman, wanting to be just a barber cannot. They have to go to cosmetology school. That is an expensive school. But the cosmetology lobbyists saw to it to regulate hair cuts and barbers need licensure and weeks of formal…See More

Any advice for a clogged bathroom sink?

Hey all - The sink in my bathroom clogs from time to time. Usually it's no big deal and I just have to pop off the trap and pull out a hairball or what have you from one of the sections.This time I've popped off all the plumbing underneath to dig in with an auger, but it's not doing anything. A look with the flashlight showed a caked-on, black, gunky mess two or three feet into the drain pipe; the auger won't budge it. In fact, I think I may have closed the clog up even more snaking it in…See More
