    Come on man, can't I get a warning or something? That's just cold.

    Fellow SFers, do not, I repeat, do not follow this link.

    Is the man available separately?

    Could add flavor to the stock line "See my other auctions."

    More seriously, even after ebay forbade the sale of non-washed clothing and undergarments, there is an apparently thriving submarket in big-pec'd boys modelling usually cheap articles of clothing.  Most are shirts, since the chest is the most-fetishized male body part whose flesh can be shown on ebay.

    The shoes remain a tough sell.  Hard to sex up a pair of Florsheims.  And in the gallery photo, they look like pasties for the Road Warrior's all male go-go bar.

    You clearly weren't around for the infamous cashmere-scarf-as-butt-floss auction. We showed it to ernest but he passed as it wasn't H&K.

    Yeah, I saw this one too. I even posted it on AA. Shock, I guess. I mean, I don't get it. At first, I thought the shoes could be some sort of decoy, and the real sale was something illegal. However, it really does look like they're just selling the shoes. Go figure.
