Ope, I totally forgot to check this thread out, way to go me.
Anyways, I was able to get a shirt from a wonderful user on here who was gracious enough to give me a brand new spare from their personal collection. Talk about my prayers being answered and all of my polite pestering wasn't all fruitless. This person knows who they are and I'll keep it private to prevent any other sort of issues from coming up, but I can't thank them enough ♥
Now... need to find someone with that cool DeSoto shirt and offer $120 to them since that seems to be the average for a shirt. Anyone reading this and has a new or used DeSoto shirt, I will so stick to my word with it : )
