In all honesty, I suspected it was only a matter of time before someone got banned for inappropriate behavior once a member of the fairer sex joined our ranks. I did NOT expect it to be the member of the fairer sex.

 

Wow, so much hate for a joke that happened 2 days ago.....  And even after I sent you 2 suits, GMM..... Perhaps I made the wrong trade....

Derailment! Oh no! (Click to show)

 

On a side note, any of you assholes who had a problem with what I had to say, can kiss my ass. That shows me who gets offended quite easily over the internet. Either way, I don't care. I applaud how serious you all are....

That Zegna is quite old. That Brioni is very beautiful! That Hickey though.... Wow. The inches between the end of the cuff and the start of the buttons... wow. Is it missing 2 buttons, by chance?

Wow, that Ben Silver button set! You thinking about selling them separately?

post #67924 of 102784
I was thinking about selling the buttons separately but I think MG might be right that two buttons are missing from each cuff. Still worth money I think. Hopefully some Kansas fan wants a new blazer.
post #67925 of 102784

Dex, did you look on the back of the buttons any to see if those buttons are gold? Probably not, but ya never know.

post #67926 of 102784
I'm not exactly sure what to look for, the buttons are just stamped "Ben Silver, New York." How can I tell?
post #67927 of 102784

I kinda doubt they would be, but on the back of the button, there could be a 12K, 14K, 18K....etc

post #67928 of 102784
Nope. I haven't hit the solid gold blazer button jackpot yet.
post #67929 of 102784

Damn. Was worth the look anyways. Good job, regardless! Great (and very interesting) find!

I think it's time I made a serious post, not a wildly satirical one.

We are all adults here. Watch this:

shit
fuck
ass
bitch

Most forums on the internet censor those words, but this one doesn't. We are all intelligent people that self-moderate pretty well. We all also have our own sets of opinions, but what we need to realize is that other people are allowed to have a different opinion.

We should not look at what was obviously a joke as a hateful message, because it wasn't directed at anyone in particular. Dex brings up an excellent point on it being okay to objectify women as used goods.

Really all I think martinigirl intended was to say some of you need to loosen up. Way to prove her prove her wrong.

Thanks, 330ck. I never got the memo where using the word "gay" was inappropriate. It was a joke, nothing more. It's not gonna happen again, either. Wishing ill upon someone for making said joke, is just in bad taste too. I'm looking your way, Deadboy. The "go jump into traffic on the freeway" was very tasteless. I never asked to be treated differently. At least 330ck is treating me like a person, and I respect him very highly because of that.

 

This may be yet another derailment, but I'm still gonna talk nicely about what you guys find and add my insight. Which, btw, 330ck... That Brioni and Canali are magnificent! Well done! That hat with the box is major awesome. Looks like something Napoleon wore.

No kidding, haha. Wonder what the D.R could go for. By the way, Dex... The Goat Suede Polo is very eccentric! In a good way. Got 1 question though..... What does that thing feel like?! I've never touched goat suede before.

I will refrain from making any unseemly jokes about what you may or may not have touched before. I honestly can't tell the difference from regular suede, except that I feel like someone will pay more for it on eBay.
