No way ed is an old enough fart to remember that. :lmao:

Julius LaRosa's revenge: A pretty decent career after that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_La ... er_Godfrey
Shortly after he left Godfrey, La Rosa's third recording, "Eh, Cumpari", hit #1 on the Cash Box chart and #2 on the Billboard chart, with La Rosa getting an award as the best new male vocalist of 1953.
My paternal grandmother's favorite record. :coolspecs:

BBC wrote:H&M; to make female clothes sizes bigger

A spokesperson for the high street chain said: "We are taking the steps to change our womenswear measurements to be in line with UK sizing."

For example, the Swedish chain said the previous measurements and fit of a size 12 would now be the measurements of a size 10.

Many shoppers have previously complained that H&M sizes are too small.

In March, shopper Rebecca Parker wrote an open letter complaining that despite being a 12/14 she struggled to fit into size 14 jeans at H&M.

"Why is it OK for a brand to label an item of clothing as a size which it clearly isn't," she asked.

She pointed out that while H&M sold items emblazoned with phrases such as #GRLPOWER or SISTERHOOD the shop's sizing policy was the opposite of empowering women.

Wonder if it's a really matter of differing measurement norms, or people getting fatter but wanting to remain "the same size"? Which of course would "empower" them. :|
