post #8822 of 13602
Sitting in an airport and WAS enjoying my lunch and checking emails. This reply from an eBay seller kinda killed it (in response to my question regarding suit lining stains detailed in the description) "Dear Ebayer send email address for pics. The stain is yellowing most likely from urine.". umm pass. at least they were honest.

My pops bought a Brioni suit a while back that had horrible urine stains in the crotch that were not disclosed. He sent it to his tailor and had him remove ALL of the lining and replace it with new lining. It then occurred to him that the urine stain was obvious on the white lining, but what about black or navy blue lining. So, sufficiently horrified by the Brioni slacks he determined that whenever he buys a used high-end suit or slacks with dark lining now he sends them off to replace the lining. His tailor only charges him $40 to $60 to do this so he thinks it is worth it. Just a thought.

Why are piss stains so prevalent in used suits? Are they the result of people dying in these suits or are they simply garden variety, day-to-day leakage piss stains?

I dont know about you man, but I have no garden variety or day to day leakage. Might want to check on that.

Touché.

My point was (intended to be, at least), that based on my experience, piss stains are not a part of a normal wardrobe. So are all these piss-stained pants coming from old/incontinent people or actual dead people?

Ive found them in RLPL on down the line. You never can judge a mans bladder by his suit.

Getting old sucks, and pissing your pants is the least of it, from what I've observed.

This is nasty. How the hell can anyone wear piss stained clothing ????
Sorry. It's nauseating me to even think of it :-(

Regards.

Piss stained pants.  Another thread where a poster mentioned his excessive sweating causes his pants to rip in the crotch and fungus to grow in his shoes.  uhoh.gif  Yeah, I think I've been sufficiently scared off from ever buying used clothing.

Well, I decided that I would wait for a few days and see if anyone else really wanted these, and if not it would be a sign that they were meant to be mine. Now they are. nod[1].gif

I've had them shipped to my folks' place in the UK though to avoid customs charges etc. which means I won't see them until December, but that will be just when I'll need them...

 

Thanks for spotting these, Malford.
