Bowling Shirt Measuring
(for guys 'n' gals)
Bowling Shirts were obviously first designed for 10 pin bowling, so that
the bowlers could “s-t-r-e-t-c-h”  -  hence the rear gussets (pleats),
& by their "very nature", bowling shirts are “loose fitting”
Bowling shirts were then “adopted” by swing dancers and later
on by rock `n' roll & rockabilly dancers, because they also
wanted the “s-t-r-e-t-c-h” for when they were dancing
Please provide your actual body measurements and we will make the
appropriate adjustments to ensure a correct "bowling shirt fit"
A:      Around Chest - inches or centimetres
B:      Around Waist - inches or centimetres
C:      Around Hips - inches or centimetres
D:      From rear collar base to finished shirt length
E:      From collar base to finished sleeve end
F:      Around Arm - inches or centimetres




gorgeous Gift Vouchers

Almost everbody has Gift Vouchers - but they can be so "boring"
Yes, the "thought" is there, & you'd like to give the receiver
