    I'm trying to put together a wardrobe too and I buy everything on eBay. But then I don't leave the house much and I also sell on eBay but just until the third and no more listing there. They eat you up in fees.
    Today I got a hobby horse leather zip it vest the site was out of in my size. It was on sale for $59.00 at the site, and I paid $21.00 for the used one at eBay in my size. But I understand what you mean about no credit card. Good lick in your search!!~!!

    Aw thank you. :) I don't know my exact size in everything but here's an estimate. I am 5ft3 and a half, and weigh 125-ish. My Elation pull on breeches are a size 28R. My horsewear winter riding jacket is a medium but in ordinary T-shirts and shirts I wear a small (sometimes medium). I don't know what size I take in show shirts though. I really don't understand the sizing, so maybe you would be able to estimate??

    Thanks a lot. :)

    Thanks! I hope I find something, someplace. Credit cards are useful, but can be dangerous little things. Lol. ;)

    Ahhh...the only bad thing about that is not knowing sizing. Haha.

    Any particular colour you are looking for, or does it matter?

    Of course...if you aren't a size 12, then it won't work. However, in this ad (Essex Classics coolmax Show shirt Child Sz 12 teal on eBay.ca (item 170604797700 end time 17-Jun-11 12:14:23 EDT)) the lady gives measurements for the shirt, so if you compared yourself against them...it might give you an idea of wether to go up or down.

    Yeah they can. I use paypal which you link to your bank account (which I don't do) or atm card (which I do) The reason I use my atm card through paypal is because I've signed up at my bank to have it declined if there's not enough money, because eBay picks the oddest moments to take their fees out, and often you don't get the invoice until they've already run the charge through your bank, causing an overdraft fee. Plus Paypal will get your money back if you end up with something that's not even close to what you THOUGHT you were ordering, LOL.

    Haha, ya definitely up! I measure from armpit to wrist (around where the cuff should stop) it was 17inches, I'm 19inches.
    Chest to armpit was 12 inches... I was 16-17 depending where I measured.

    Well at least I know I can't fit into kid sizes! Lol. Do you know what the smallest woman size is?

    Kids sizes should go up to 16 or 18... ??

    I'll do a quick look again. This one is almost 90 though :(

    But then again, if you got a womens, it might fit you longer.


    Oooo! http://cgi.ebay.ca/Pale-Pink-RJ-Clas...item3f09d08b85

    Sizing is further down. Its still a little big though....

    You are better off with it a bit long. Otherwise it starts to come untucked, and that doesn't look nice.

    Sorry, I meant the sleeves. From my shoulder to half way my palm, it's 23 inches (so 22 inches passes my wrist comfortably). 24 inches is a bit long, but if all show shirts are made like that, then I'll have to live with pulling the sleeves up a bit. :)
