    Do you have any thoughts on how we might harness the powerful force of anger to protect the West or maybe clean up the Gulf?

    Would an actual harness be involved, perhaps?

    You are a smart guy. How do we do it?

    It involves mirrors. That's all I can say for now.

    You forgot machine-rolled edges on their silk squares in that list.

    And the watches and perfumes/colognes.

    I didn't know he had an issue with EG before.

    Here is a sample from the LL

    I have a pair of their cufflinks.

    I didn't want them, but their massive advertizing budget swayed me.

    Is this the thread where I accuse my tailor of draping me during a fitting?

    Reminds me of the Friends episode re: Joey and his tailor.

    bengal-stripe: Thanks for the link.

    If I get banned for being witty and entertaining with a penchant for occasionally posting a hot piece of tail on page 17 of a thread that has been beat to death to the point where it started with a discussion of hand-stiched buttonholes on surgeon's cuffs and ended with a discussion of class warfare in the 18th century in Portugal, then did I really belong here anyway(?) Probably not.

    That being said, I've never been banned before from any forum, so it might be kind of cool. Who does the banning, though? AA has the swaggering, cowboy-like Alex Kabbaz, who posts 853x per day whilst supposedly stitching the greatest shirts in the history of haberdashery, summarily banning anyone with the bad sense to bump a dead thread or, more importantly, talk sideways about a preferred vendor, especially a certain vendor who makes the greatest shirts in the history of haberdashery and sells an extensive collection of Zimmerelli socks and hosiery. Do we have anything like that around here? Haven't seen it, but - then again - I'm a relative nooob.

    Cheerio.

    I like your analogy Bull. This thread has become de railed very quickly, I look forward to seeing the course it takes.

    Witty and entertaining isn't how I'd put it.

    All looks wonderful, and I'd definitely consider myself an analyst of draping. An analdrapist, if you will.

    The banning is by committee. Manton, Vox, Foo and IndianBoyz are the ranking members. I am the stenographer.

    Wait, this is the group of miscreants that makes up the "banning committee"?

    Partying in the looney bin is always more fun after the inmates have taken over.
