    I don't think Balmain is dead - according to a sales associate friend, Bergdorf sells a ton of Balmain every Friday. They then get it all back as returns on Saturday. [​IMG]

    How does that even work? Why not just buy the real deal at that point?

    @kgfan5 rocks the bikers pretty well.

    I really wish I picked up the green ones from last f/w.

    Also, I'll be in Portland next weekend. I'm assuming it will be rainy. Will probably spend one day doing super touristy stuff, any other recs?

    Would it bother you (culture taboo perhaps) if there is a small chance that a piece 2nd hand clothing was taken directly from a deceased person and sold online?

    those are outliers that will never actually sell at that price.

    just did a quick check of ebay and the biker jeans, for example, are listed for three to four bills -- way more than any reasonable person should pay but still far, far less than the mainline bikers go for.

    Would buy if it was certifiably haunted or could display paranormal anomalies but if not then it's just gross

    Either this is hypothetical, or we're gonna need some deets.

    If it's the clothes that somebody died in, then it's cool. If it's like the clothes worn by the corpse at the funeral, that's not cool. #carlito

    It's a long shot, but does anyone know of any shoe brands that offer a wide welt? I've been (casually) on the hunt for the Raf Simons chain derbies, but came up with nothing so I want to DIY. I came across a 42 hoping it'd fit, but it didn't. :(

    If you put your hand on your chest while wearing the clothes you may feel a dull, rhythmic thump. If you do, this is a sign that the spirit of the deceased owner is trapped within the garment and is trying to escape.
