even with "rolling the dice," usually a good outcome

My past experiences with Terramar tee shirts and briefs have been positive over the years, although I do not purchase them excepting at a deep discount. My only problem--and it is a large one--is that the product changes from order to order: fabric, special qualities, neck size of the tees (sometimes, to my delight, more like crew necks), and height of the briefs (which are the very opposite of "low-rise"). After a couple of frustrated contacts with STP I have learned that these variations are unavoidable with Terramar product seconds. The size charts accompanying the products also change from time to time. I had to return my latest order of ten each shirts and briefs for exchange to a smaller size. I should have gone with my instinct to order small, but I followed the charts and ordered mediums. Despite the charts, mediums are far too large for me. Even the small-size tees have necks too big, although the orders in which I received crew necks, despite the catalog description otherwise, fit perfectly. With the small-size briefs in some--not all--of my previous orders, I have had to fold down the tops because they reached above my waist to the bottom of my rib cage. Why put up with this? I love the black color (at least after the first few washings), the non-absorbancy in higher temperatures, and the SPF factor. Plus, I like STP, having been a customer of the original founder beginning years before STP kept full computer records.
