Agreed; I loved my HL stuff and if he were still around, would probably still be wearing his stuff. I have a few things left; but most have just been worn into oblivion (jeans mostly). Some of the outerwear still holds up, including one of those nylon jackets with all the bondage straps everywhere. I think I have two button-front slim shirts from 96-99, but those lasted only because I didn't wear them as much. The egyptian cotton tees have long since disintegrated, sadly. Those were a lot of fun. I wish I had bought one of the Felix the Cat ones he did in 2004; I saw one on sale in Tokyo for like 4000 yen ($35) and I didn't buy it.
