Have you ever crabbed your pants?

When I was young and had trouble finding good button-downs in London I used to buy ordinary shirts & have the collars stripped of their stays and converted into button-downs by a lovely little old lady in Evelyn Gardens. An odd process but they still wound up looking better than most Ben Shermans...

Remembering this has made me think of all those Trads who might not be able to find pants with crabs on and have had to buy regular ones and then have crustaceans embroidered on them at great expense.

(Either that or I'm looking for an excuse for this very childish thread title...
I can no longer tell).

What strange yet wonderful alterations & improvisations have milestoned your sartorial journey?

I knew a bloke at school who couldn't find a tab collar & tried to blu-tac down an ordinary one instead. Looked quite good 'till things got hot & it sprang up again...

Larry/Terry/Russell/Miles --

Have you become bored of the FNB forum? I guess you would, seeing as how most of the replies to the threads you start come from you as well...

Wow!
I throw one ball & hit two coconuts!

Let's be serious here guys...

You know my job is to entertain lurkers.
I'm busy 24/7.

Please respect my thread. Should you be posting here without crabby pants?

Why is only 1 type of crab ,available on most pants? If its my choice, I would prefer this variety , as its more delicious(for eating):

I have mostly seen the lobster, not the crab, on the pants. I would prefer to eat them, both.

Take some regular khakis or cords.
Embroider crabs on them.
Don't look now - You've just crabbed your pants.

Not at all -
It's to your credit that you know nothing of those who crab themselves.

Once I was like you...

Oh to go back, back, back, back, back...
