NCAA Louisville Cardinals Women's Prius2 Long Body Classic T-Shirt, Red, Large
NCAA Louisville Cardinals Women's Prius2 Long Body Classic T-Shirt, Red, Large
Price: $19.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Way too small, July 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased for my daughter who is typically a size small in tshirts. I read the other reviews about sizing and ordered a size up. It was way too small, so ordered an XL which was also too small. The fabric is thin, so a reasonable fit would be appropriate. Unfortunate, because the graphics and length are good on this shirt.


Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith
Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Mormon friends might not want you to read this..., July 9, 2014
This is an excellent, although slightly biased, history of Mormonism with a focus on the fundamentalist aspects. Krakauer leads readers through the founding of the church all the way to the present. He is obviously cynical about religion, but uses historical document, court records, and personal interviews to form a story that flows better than any novel. The authors' notes describing his research and initial concept for the book are also very interesting.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about Mormonism, it's history and it's fringe elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Removes "pills" from wool..., February 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This brush miraculously removes pills from wool & cashmere... It does NOT work on synthetics. I'm a knitter and wear lots of wool, cashmere and wool blend sweaters. I notice pilling in the armpits and wherever there is rubbing (cuffs, seatbelt, shoulder bag, etc). This brush helps sweaters look newer by removing these signs of wear. I've tried other types of de-pillers and none even come close to the Lilly brush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deck shoe look with Clark's support, January 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are terrific shoes:

Pros: removable insert, supportive when tied, stylish, priced right

Cons: limited colors

These are great shoes... Clark's usually provide a well made shoe that is supportive. My son dearly wanted deck shoes, but the other brands were not good on his flat, size 13 feet. He is able use his own orthotic and lace them snugly but still have the style he likes. I'm pretty sure that he'd purchase a second pair if another color was available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good Otterbox replacement skin, October 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this inexpensive replacement skin because my old one was worn out around the ports. The port covers do not close at all on this skin. The skin doesn't fit well around any of the crutial areas: ports, screen or where the hard plastic case latches. Also, this case is smooth and almost slippery, not sticky like the Otterbox original, so the phone might move around more than you might expect.
I gave it 2 stars because it was inexpensive and basically worked - I didn't want to pay the Otterbox price for replacement case or skin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Way too expensive..., July 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this tie clip as a gift for a young man who didn't want shiny - its not shiny, quite understated. It looks good and it's functional. My problem is with the price... Over $20 for this glorified alligator clip is ridiculous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good courtroom/police drama, July 8, 2013
This is the first book I've read by this author. Apparently this is a stand-alone, but he has many other series that I will probably read as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute inexpensive necklace, July 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a piece of costume jewelry that cost less than $20. I purchased it to dress up some plainer clothes, and I like the way it looks. I've taken care to limit it's exposure to lotions and perfumes - I have a feeling the finish is not all that great.

Haggar Men's Hopsack Blazer, Blue, 40 L
Haggar Men's Hopsack Blazer, Blue, 40 L

3.0 out of 5 stars Seemed like a nice blazer on the hanger, but...., June 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased the jacket for my son (40L - he's 6', 170#). He has a couple of other suit jackets and sport coats in this size that fit him well, so the size was right. Although it fit across the top of the shoulders, it seemed like there was excess fabric under the arms and the jacket actually flared out in the back - kind of A-line.

Pros- all the nice details were there - pockets, lining, fabric felt good. Haggar does a good job making affordable menswear that looks good.

Cons- obviously, the fit. This might have been a good blazer for someone with a big pot belly to take up the extra fabric.

I returned the jacket immediately - Amazon already credited my account.
