That first picture belongs in the "creepy sartorial images" thread... it is deeply disturbing in ways I cannot explain.

For the well-to-do psychiatric patient . . . it's a bespoke straight-jacket. The sleeves cross in front and are tied in back.

This was actually up in B&S for a while. There are actually way weirder Thom Browne items, if you check his fashion shows.

Runway piece. The sleeves were shown tied behind the back, sort of like a straight jacket.

This is the kind of 'art' that is only horrible and depressing in a museum, but horrible, depressing, and funny when worn on a living human.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
