    For a multitude of reasons.

    The suit itself is bad enough in my opinion (material, cut, likely construction, etc) but I encourage the easily amused (like me) to read the item description too.

    What impresses me more are the (to date) 8 bids, with plenty of time left to run.

    Yes, the description's a barrel of laughs:

    Ah but at least yours wasn't urine-stained, right?

    Right?

    Yes, but I give serious respect to the seller for honesty. It certainly shows that a honest description does not deter bidding so long as the suit is an ARMANI.

    Well, it's a good thing he says clearly that the suit is "classy".

    I would never have seen that myself.

    I wonder what would happen if a seller were to try wiping his ass with the inside lining of some Armani Black Label suit trousers before putting the suit up for auction. Anyone want to try this out to sate my curiosity?

    "I DO NOT SELL UNAUTHENTIC [sic] ITEMS."

    Question to Seller, just sent: Is that authentic urine on the pants?

    ayboyjs: Would that make it Armani Brown Label?

    I can barely contain myself waiting for the reply. Of course, it sounds as though the previous owner of the suit had similar difficulties...

    Probably would not reduce sales so long as the ARMANI was in the description.

    I've heard that Olga uses urine to get the antiquing on her Belutis just right.

    Is she launching the new "shooman" club?
