Ok, I can make 3 request for now; I can also advance them in cash, and 
also advance some of the initial money
required (ummm..... about 100 Euros).

Only request: don't make them all XL, you see, an English or German XL 
is kinda like a full gown to me :)
I'm medium height (1.77 m), but every L/XL I see from the 
barbari^H^H^H^H^H  central europe and above is
a way to L; also, some ppl like their T-Shirts to be the right size 
(read: not the usual loose and long style). Even an
L is long enough for many ppl, so I would like an M (or even an S if the 
M's are nibelungen-sized also).

Having said that :), count me in. Just need a way to transfer the money, 
both the payement and the initial advance.
