Then I saw a nice pair of Ballin pants - thick wool almost the same quality as the Giorgio Armani pants. Everything looked fine - the waist stitching looked great. I tried it on and it was a size too big but a tailor could have taken care of it. I was tugging on the pants, pulling it up, - just trying to get a feel of the fit as if it was altered. After I was done - I went for a further inspection and HOLY SHIT there was a piss yellow stain on the crotch area.C I can't believe I put that shit on me.


Furthermore, I can't believe a store would take a pair of pants back with piss stains on it. In addition, I can't believe a store would sell piss stain pants.

How do you avoid laundering dress shirts just for the collar?


Solution? Get some cloth tape from CVS, and line your collar.

You can now wear the shirts 5+ times before laundering.

Alright, so I have really thick, muscular thighs--my inner thighs actually rub together when I walk--and this causes my entire crotch-region (I'll try not to be too explicit) to get pushed up and out. The result is that if I'm wearing any normal, reasonably tight-fitting pants or shorts--then at its worst--it looks like I'm walking around with half of an erection. My crotch-region just bulges out more than what is typically normal.


Again, without being too explicit, I'm assuming that with most guys, their twig-and-berries just hang straight down between their legs; mine rests almost completely horizontal, and therefore jut out.


I've tried all sorts of different pants and shorts to correct this, to little or no avail. I typically just wear pants that are far too big for me to give that "rumpled" look so you can't tell, but this is very uncomfortable and obviously just looks unprofessional or weird if you're always wearing pants or shorts that are two or three sizes too big. It's therefore impossible for me to wear any kind of tight-fitting gym shorts or professional-looking slacks.


I know this is a weird question but I am being totally legit, and would really appreciate any answers. I am normal sized down there, and I am of a medium build, so I'm not fat or anything else that would cause this, my thighs are just very thick. Thanks in advance for your responses.

You will need:
A sock with a hole

(Note: I ran out of socks with holes before I decided to make this thread, so no pics for the first two steps until I wear though some more)
I always enjoy modding and repairing my clothes. I am here to share some of my knowledge with you.
Here is a guide on how to repair your socks:
Before:
Imagine a sock if a hole in it.
During:
Imagine a sock being repaired with a serger.
After:

Wearing:

Conclusion:
Most of my socks wear down at the back of the heels first, now they can be repaired. The material will stretch and the bite out of the sock won't be noticeable when being worn.
Questions & Comments Welcome.

I think NOBD was looking for the old threads that offered advise to those new to WAYWRN.

I don't have the link (to protect the guilty), but there was this quality seller that offered great advice.

"All joking aside, if you simply got rid of all your clothing and shoes, purchased an entire new closet (based on SF tastes, not your own), excercised a bit, changed your glasses, maybe some colored contacts, got a different haircut, maybe did a bit of work on your nose, got a bit of a tan, changed your personality, stopped buying deerskin bags, keep your socks on your feet.......you wouldn't look so bad after all."

To be serious for a moment, here's a sincere nomination.
post #28 of 228
Dammit ed you beat me too it. But i was gonna nominate his "dyeing your shoes black to avoid looking poor" post

Thread Starter 
I like some of these, but excepting the handful of "serious" contributions, I am thinking 2 things:

1) SW&D is going to kick your collective asses all over the forum and confine you to the depths of AF's hell (the cars, automobiles, and other consumer tech and home stuff forum)
2) I am genuinely curious on what Conne's take on F. Corbera will be like. I predict that it will be much like a Lefty Trip to Mission Chinese. I predict that it will be funnier than even regular F. Corbera posting.

Seminal post/threak that defined an era on SF. Really should be required reading for all new members.

Is there a reason why I shouldn't just order four or five more of exactly the same shoe? I would keep a pair of black captoes around for occasions when they're required. But so long as I'm comfortable wearing these Longwings on a day-to-day basis, even with business suits, is there anything I should fear other than boredom?
