Al Sharpton's latest suit on fox news right now - Page 2

post #16 of 44

Wonder who owns the suit? The Rev. cannot own anything of any value - too many judgements against him.  Someone tried to collect on one of them by siezing some property.  Not his watch.  Not his suit.  Last I knew, the FEC wanted some of that money back too.
Not sure which jurisdiction's law would apply, but a lot of jurisdictions exempt clothing from seizure.

It seems to be a black thing. I've seen all kinds of strange collar/lapel blazers these days, the first I took notice of was the one like Sharpton was wearing, Bernie Mac wore a no notch lapel blazer in the movie "Guess Who?". Strange style indeed. Eric

Rev. Al was deposed several years ago for a civil lawsuit (can't remember which one) and he was questioned on this very point. He told the lawyer that he does not "own" any suits, but "has access" to several. Important distinction.

I'd deny owning a suit like that too. Incidentally, we liberals think of it as Hannity and Sock Puppet Punching Bag.

Evidently, his social action organization hires him and provides him with clothing. The entire thing is a legal (albeit unethical) way of shielding assets. Evidently, he can claim minimal income and virtual no assets/resources. This helps when your creditors are not smart enough to get second and third party guarantors. Chuck: I believe it is the technically the right-wing, Bush apologist and his ever-so-slightly more moderate yes-man. At least that is what I got from reading the Al Franken book.

Yeah well, him and every married man I know. What's hers is hers, what's yers is hers....

This suit doesn't sound nearly as bad as the downward-pointing-peak-lapeled suit that a distressing number of athletes and ex-athlete sports commentators have been wearing lately.

In a Washington Post article recently, Al Sharpton said he gets some of his clothes from the "Woody Wilson Collection" in Beverly Hills, CA http://woodywilson.com/ That unusual lapel is on the home page (left side) Click on "clients" on the top header and you will see Al Sharpton's name and those of other clients The lapel in question above

Hm. I wonder if they carry lace jabots.
post #27 of 44
Yup, that's the lapel.

Some of the Woody Wilson suits aren't bad, but there are no words to describe this......or are there?

Speaking of weird lapels, Kenny Smith on last night's TNT NBA broadcast was wearing lapels that had the notch *below* the point of the lapel -- notched upwards into the bottom part of the triangle. To do a bad ascii rendition, it looked something like this: Code Sample / / < ^ \\

Miller - yeah, I can think of some. I'd like a ruling from Manton though, I think he could do it better than I can.
