    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws....hosting Look at the series of pictures.  Is it me, or is the guy showing off a potentially decent suit very badly? Would this be a reasonable purchase if it stayed at £20?  What's Dior stuff like?  Is it worth a punt?

    Actually it looks like to me like he already got punted in the rear end...


    PS: Faustain...You are a WUSSY...You could have had it, had you bumped me up in buying and selling and I not responded here, but Nooo...
    OK Sorry for the "hijack" (The whole thread is comical anyway), now back to our regular scheduled programming.

    You guys kill me. That "model" took his mother's telling him he looked nice too much to heart. There is no other explanation. I like the Zoolander poses. Wonder which one is "Blue steel"?

    Wow, that guy looks like a tool.

    BTW, if you're looking for the current high end, high fashion Dior stuff (aka Dior Homme), that's not it. That's just an old cheap suit from either the 80's or 90's back when Christian Dior licensed out its name for low end mall store trash.

    That's classic, but the suit is not. Old licensed Dior, real junk.

    Wouldn't you feel uncomfortable wearing that suit after you saw him do that in it?

    That looks like a still from a bad '80s Duran Duran video.

    No way. Girls have different tastes in guys, but I guarantee that that guy is pulling on a very, very, infrequent basis, and only because there are some masochistic (sorry, compassionate) women in the world.

    Wow, that D & G auction you linked really brings back some bad memories from last week. A partner and I were BOTH wearing that same exact outfit -- right down to not wearing any shoes. It was so embarrassing. I of course had only the top 2 buttons undone on my shirt -- more timeless in my opinion.

    Ouch...although this guy does just beg to be someone's avatar.  Is it ever a good idea to model stuff for ebay?  Everytime I see it done, there's always a certain "yuck" factor--which is irrational, since you know used stuff has been worn by someone.  But somehow, seeing it makes it worse. [​IMG]
