    Hi!

    So I am looking for some ideas to create the most ridiculous looking suit in existence. I will have it made by a tailor in China and the idea is to look so horrendous that it's funny, it'll be used in parties and for some random messing around. The suit must be made with ordinarily available materials for tailors. Any ideas, suggestions? I've been thinking maybe leopard pattern or perhaps a picture of my own face in the back. Show me your worst!

    Thanks.

    Is it that weird reflective suit posted in WAYWRN a few days ago? With reflective stripes woven in?

    Wasn't this the plot of an episode of Top Gear?

    EDIT - It was Vietnam instead of China.

    Random ideas:

    -Have a hood attached to it made from the same material as the suit

    -The pants should have footies attached to them like the pajama suits you wore as a kid, no shoes needed

    -The "buttons" on the sleeves should be cubic zirconias

    -Make the gorge on the lapels sit just above your bellybutton

    -Have it designed so it can be worn completely upside down, with the pants on your upper torso and the jacket on your lower half like a kilt

    Contrast sleeve cuffs, pant cuffs, pocket flaps, and shawl lapel.
    Four button.
    Suit in this tartan:

    Contrast fabric should be light gray, with a strong sheen to it.

    Buttons should be metal, preferably brass (to clash with the silver).

    Triple-pleated pants.

    I would encourage you to be sure that the fit is flawless.

    Haha nice ones! I love the hood idea, I will definitely remember it.

    When I have enough ideas and get the suit made I will post a picture here.

    Pretty sure that would fly in SW&D. It isn't that bad of an idea for a certain aesthetic. I'd love to see one (but be terrified to wear it).

    But it's a fun troll thread.

    Plus one. I had fun thinking up the most atrocious suit I could.

    Excuse me but do you know what trolling means? It means provoking people into senseless arguments and trying to make other users mad. This thread is nothing about trolling unless you just began the trolling. We are supposed to have fun here and not be serious, the less serious the better ideas I get. Making the suit will cost me about $100 since I am in China so it's not like I'm spending huge amounts of money on it, it's just for fun and for messing around. Pictures will follow in a couple of weeks if I get good enough ideas to go through with this.

    Seriously. Spoo, love ya man, but I really don't think you have a good idea of the meaning of that word. It's a silly thread, sure, but OP wasn't trolling. This is trolling:

    I came here for an argument. An argument is not simply negating my points it's making your own counter argument and presenting it in a way contrary to my position.
