I am wearing pants that are about as tight as that portly fellow's stripped suit. My cock looks huge in them. I wanted you guys to know because I'm a classless homosexual-in-denial who doesn't understand how dressing like you're a 90s British I-Banker going to Vegas can be considered "upper".

Funny, I've never been to Vegas and meeting a group of English for the first time a few months ago, they thought I worked in the city in 2009. I doubt it, true homosexuals are usually very conservatively mannered, refined people. More likely you're one of those "guys" who think they're very hetero in spite of indulging in a weekly glory hole treat. Maybe you are even one of those persons on a message board who are emboldened because they think they have an unfair advantage of support from the mods, haven't the raisins to post in a place where they don't feel they have a lot of allies and still have the ability to call someone who does a coward? I'm just speculating, of course

Nevermind your taste in clothes, you really are an odious creature.

I believe if you are going to do something, you should do it well.

I think it lies in what you see aesthetically. I too have trouble seeing men as sexual creatures and am really baffled when people want to have sex with me. Goats and clowns I understand, but people?

On this line of thought . . .

When walking by a barking dog, does one get down on all fours and bark back?

What if the dog talked?

Tempting, isn't it?

And this line of thought seems to have gotten FNB two weeks in time out.

Now we know how the munchkins felt when the wicked witch of the east was killed. I already miss his misplaced homophobia, the indelicate way he dresses like the bastard, color-blind son of punky brewster and mork (from mork and mindy) and the way he managed to incite so little outrage despite his best attempts. In the end no one really cared. Someone should start an FNB celebration/hallelujah thread, it would be his only legacy to the forum.

Sometimes... but let's keep my fetishes out of this thread.

I did have to laugh when both Vox and Iammatt when after him about his class obsession in the context, of all things, hopsack. That whole mini-thread of class, hopsack and garbage men was a jewell.

Yeah, I think he believes maybe 20% of what he says but mainly likes to go after his enemies by attacking what they like. That's a big part of the reason why he rarely makes any sense. The same guy who makes shirts out of bedsheets and dresses like less fun version of the Joker, somehow thinks that balmoral boots and monk strap shoes are too out there. People should wear criticism from FNB as a badge of honor given how poor his taste is.

He seems to be very angry that he hasn't captured much of an audience here and acts out against all those who have. It's too bad his advanced forum never took off (I'm assuming it was DOA, I've never actually gone to check it out) or he'd be able to get enough satisfaction over there.

Since this thread started with the subject of mythbusting, I'd like to do a little summary:

1. Nino Corvato does not cut a drape coat!
2. Some men care more about being liked by the MD of A&S than for the proper (in a tailor's view) fit of their garments.
3. A hand sewn seam can be easily replaced by an equivalent machine version without any loss of durability or flexibility.
4. A flexible shoulder seam has not really a direct impact on the overall comfort of the garment.
5. A high armhole alone does not guarantee a decent looking, comfortable garment when the armhole(diameter) is as wide as a barn gate.
6. A sleeve with additional length in the undersleeve provides a fuller range of movement, but will look messy.
7. A bias cut canvas does not really serve a purpose other than being something to talk about.
8. Some men should avoid loud patterned fabrics.
9. As soon as somebody posts a picture of a beautiful woman the hetero members get distracted from the main subject.
10. Speaking of beautiful people: A fine chest needs no drape!

Feel free to add anything I have not covered.

This is a good point to note that I really like the nook.
