bizarre request - can I borrow a orange or purple trisuit?

This may sound rather bizarre but here goes...

A lovely friend died recently of cancer - she was aged 40, two kids and a hubby.

On Saturday we are attending her memorial day. Typically for her she organised it all before she died, and her request was no black, everyone to wear orange or purple, not to mourn but to celebrate. Whilst this may seem odd, she would have approved of me attending her memorial dressed in a tri suit.

So - this is the bizarre part (and unlikely to be successful but here goes...).

has anyone a XL (46 inch chest anyway) orange and/or purple tri suit I could borrow for this weekend? naturally I would cover all postage costs, and its a charity fund raising day as well so your help would be grandly rewarded via the buckets and sideshows at the function.

    would be ideal but the auction doesn't end until Sunday.

    The seller says they won't end the auction early, but they might if you explained?

    Good luck anyway, hope Saturday goes OK, whatever you end up wearing.

    bugger - got it wrong... its PINK or Orange.


  • No I was a bit shocked that 34" waist is x large, I thought that was more medium

    Sorry cant help with pink, orange or purple good luck though.

    i'm just a bit of an odd shape that's all :-0 Its not so much the waist as the chest (and the belly!)

    how did you know I'm a 34" waist?

  • I've got a good eye !

    Not really, I was talking about the trisuit in jules's link.
