A Few More Rooney Heritage Stubby XLs Just In

I thought you would like to know that we received some more of the new Stubby XL's in all three sizes today. However, it goes without saying that quantities are very limited. We did manage to get a few more of the 1XL's than last time though. Enjoy.

Hello Paddy. I'm sorry that no one has gotten back to you. I checked our various email boxes and didn't see your message. It must have somehow gotten diverted by our spam filter.

A couple of points..... Rooney, to this point has not elected to have a web presence as a business decision, pure and simple. As to the reason, it is not for me to explain, other than they are a manufacturer and prefer to act like one. Personally, I wish more manufacturers operated the way they do. ...
