    Probably a few months I'm guessing ( I don't know shit about law)

    But if you steal 1 zilli piece, that's like grand theft

    No joke, I'd be upset if this is over .01% of retail. @eazye we got the spots.


    But seriously, we've both been hitting this place for years. The strange thing is I posted my weak haul from when we hit a bunch of spots over the city, what did eazye and I talk about? this place. This place has been dry for 2+ years and I keep going back. Thats not a joke. I haven't bought anything here in two years. I figure whadaug and proceed to I don't even know what. It's downhill from here.


    Also, drunk. It is Saturday night.

    Silverwarebandit has the masters in math, so I'll defer to him, but I think is even more than that, something like 0.001% of retail. Crazy, because this is one of the most overpriced and gutted places in the city. :foo:

    I want this for my eventual line of clothing. Is this copyright infringement?

    i'd consider making the cross stitching underneath the "couture" stealth black and badass. just sayin.

    of course, i'd leave the catchstitiching on the border white. but that's me.
