    I had the misfortune of clicking on this thread when it was on page 3, and have been bothered by the purple thong ever since.  And, consequently, I'm still asking myself why I find this product so particularly offending.  I've come to the conclusion that the thong does absolutely nothing to complement the male physique.  Actually, I think full frontal nudity would be more tasteful than that spandex sack for a sack (my sperm count plummets everytime someone posts another link).

    EDIT: Leave the thongs to the women. Actually, ditch the thongs altogether and let the ladies wear sheer boyshorts.

    (RJMan @ April 06 2005,14:18) Is there an "Ask Ralph" address on the Polo site? Â Can we e-mail him the link and "Ask Ralph" WHAT THE HELL were you thinking?
    You guys do realize that this is just an incredibly good Ebay joke.... There's no such thing as a RLPL man-thong. Someone just sewed in a label. Since Stu started this thread, he's got to be the odds on favorite as the owner of the auction.
    I wish I was clever enough to pull off a little joke like that, but alas, I'm not. [​IMG]

    In typically not so subtle fashion I emailed the seller and informed him of the hysteria his auction caused. His response is below. Scary thought to ponder: He will use the funds to buy something 'absurdly ridiculous' on ebay after this slingshot sells. I am frightened, hold me. You asked: "Have you seen the riot (of laughter) this auction started on styleforum? http://66.170.193.77/cgi-bin....0" Thank You SOOOO much for the heads up .. It is awesome that people are enjoying it. I am really glad. We live in a society of $60K haunted walking canes that come with their own ghosts, pretzels and old toast that look like the Virgin Mary and people selling themselves as SLAVES, ebay is cool like that. I do thank you again informing me of this, I am sure that the bids will climb, the item is a $150 item and YES there are people out there that will buy it... Keep an eye on it, WATCH IT at the end... there is already ONE bid. I am sure many more will come in. The people on the Forum don't get a penny of the money that it brings in... I do .. Instead of dumping it or donating it, I recover a good chunk of change and blow it on something absurdly ridiculous on eBay ..

    LOL Passing this on from the thong seller:
    ____

    GROSS Used thong, YES a real PURPLE LABEL mens
    thong... call Ralph, Madison Ave office number is:
    (212)318-7000 Ext 3212

    Just so that you know... over 1200 VIEWS, Over $60 in
    proceeds and 10 BIDS from 4 different buyers... NOT
    BAD huh?

    make sure you tell all your style forum buddies
    including the attorneys. Laws are in the books,
    eBay policy is clear. You should know, power seller
    and all. Junior partner, large international firm,
    very aware of these things.

    It was not a really good eBay joke, it is REAL. What
    should I do next... ? A whole 10 minutes I
    investested listing this item....

    A few drinks? a tank of fuel for the E430? an hour of
    run time for my 270HP Jetboat? I know, I will buy
    a few Zegna ties from you, or maybe a haunted cane on
    eBay.

    not only is someone wearing a used thong, but a thong used by a pompous arrogant ass.

    In other words, you were the winning bidder. Congratulations.

    Jill - you have my sympathies.

    Funny, I had you pegged as the buyer, maybe part of an outfit with clogs and a tractor.
