People enjoy NASCAR for the crashes, not the driver preparation, so let's just skip to the crash please. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he made his money with a fantastic and lucrative idea (perhaps he created a drug to cure some terrible illness in children) and has now gone back to school to become a teacher in the inner-city, but I suspect that is not the case.

 

By the way, I know two people who did pretty much that (not life-saving drugs, but lucrative ideas) so it isn't complete fantasy.

#1 why does it matter how he made his money?

 

#2 it looks like he is trying to learn

oh well.

 

BTW, when we say 'horn' (as in horn buttons, shoe horn, etc), where is the horn coming from? I mean.... stags, mountain ram? (thinking in my mind of animals with horns...)

Re: learning, I did nothing my first several months here except read and ask questions (no debates like this one_. I've gotten some books (Manton's, Flusser's, etc.), and I've been in contact with aforementioned tailors, etc. asking even more questions. I have a desire to learn, and I'm sorry if I'm still not as knowledgeable as you think I should be before I'm worthy enough to purchase from said "top-price makers".

 

Also, I legit laughed out loud at "semperextremespendius"

#1 Why does it matter to you why it might matter to me? In fact, it matters not and my choice of phrasing in terms of "benefit of doubt" was probably ill-chosen. I think it is pretty clear, however, that most who would describe themselves as "student" are not purchasing LL suits, Ambrosi pants, $1k shirts, etc. 

 

#2 Perhaps I missed it, and I may have with all the tedium of the defense of Alex whateverhisnameis, but where has there been learning? I've seen recalcitrant defensiveness of the type that tires me endlessly as an educator.

I think the fact that he is rebuffing economical alternatives seems to throw people off but hey, If he has the disposable income and he is willing to follow through then all is well

I believe they made primarily from actual horn (like animal horns), but also have a small amount of plastic for strength.

EDIT: Do you guys think LL can put unicorn horn buttons on my suit????

Surely stags have antlers.

 

I always assumed cow.

Didn't think of bull horns.

How would that work?
