My Entertainers 95-97 home shirt has just arrived from dhgate.

Ordered a 2XL (carrying a bit of timber, like), and the size is way off! I had worried it might be too big, but this is more like a UK large at best! Looks like me post lockdown diet will have to start before I wear it!

s**** those ones I just ordered i only went a size up to XL :/

Just measured this one, and the pit-pit measurement across the chest is 21", so aye...roughly a UK L mens (40-42").
And that's a 2xl? Well I'm fukt then [emoji38]

Fuuuuuuu my Bills shirt turned up today, XL, and it's f***ing HUUUUUUUGE. Probably two sizes too big. What a b******. The Roma top came and was a perfect fit in XL. Rats cocks.

If it's a replica jersey, they're always massive because they're meant to be worn over shoulder pads and stuff.

This seems obvious now, but I was going with the warnings about dhgate orders being absolutely tiny so thought it might be a bit big at worst. It's like a dress.

Imma try and flog it on eBay and order another.

Had to buy a new 27" iMac with an additional HP monitor, a Intuos Pro tablet and some additional memory to upgrade the iMac - Apple charge £200 for 16GB, I got mine for £34 (Crucial).
I've been applying for jobs for 2 months now with no luck, so hopefully the fact that I'm self-sufficient from home will help.

Now I have to wait 8 weeks for it to arrive.

I've already got a list of things I wanna f*** about with. Including some MENTAL custom v-tech train track pieces for the kiddo's train set. I'mma waste so much time/money trying to make s***.

aye. You can get ones a bit cheaper that arrive in a day and are made in dorty China, but I watched a 25 minute video on Prusa (the company that makes these) and I was suckered in. :aww:

Bought the XDJ-XZ. Pretty stoked about it, had the RX1 for couple of years when it first came out and it was class, but this is another level. Stick my 1210's either side of it and I'm in heaven. :smug: Only downside I've got to wait until November for back order of stock to arrive...  :hmm:

However in November when it arrives....  :smitten:

V2 turned up, still big but passable. Sold the first one for double the money on eBay, might start selling s*** [emoji38]

DHgate question.

Anyone purchased the Newcastle 98-99 shirt? Can you offer any advice for sizing/seller etc? Also wondering if the quality is fairly passable?

Would be for a gift, and whilst I understand it's a remake I still don't wanna gift absolute tat  :lol:

Also deliberating on a Charlestown Chiefs jersey for myself, less issues there as can't really compare it to much other than film.

Arrived early, originally expected November. So excited. The unboxing process was so delicate and satisfying.

Awesome :thup:

I remember having a first go of a mate's set (slightly older model) thinking (and saying): "pfft, never be like vinyl. Impossible."

I was sooooooo wrong. I was blown away. Absolutely amazed at the technology. I could scratch like it was a 12" but it also had cool tricks like 2 bar reverses etc. They really have put a lot of finesse into these things.

I remember when CD mixers came on the market and that's what probably muddied my opinion.

So tempted to get some just to play.

I confess to complete ignorance on this topic, what exactly do those things let you do?

edit:  and why does it go 3,1,2,4?

Mix music/tracks together :D But via your music on your USB stick etc. Rather than the old-school way of dragging your vinyl collection from gig to gig :lol:

Yeh, they've come a long way from just the normal EQ controls. I don't desire all the mad bells and whistles...but they're there if you want. Samplers, pads, audio effects, etc etc.

£1800 is a lot but it seems good value for what you're getting.

Also 3,1,2,4 is because 1 and 2 (which are likely your main channels) stay together in the middle. Easier to find in the dark etc.
