    Something like that could easily be taken care of with a disposable razor. Won't fix it completely but it would look way better.

    Yeah, if you use a disposable razor it will fix it about 80%. I've done it a handful of times over the past years with good results.

    Whatever was excreted from that mans taint to do that to the pants is probably still there, therefore I would wash your hands and consult with a doctor immediately, that shit looks corrosive.

    Back when I was in junior high in the early 80's. I specifically remember a couple kids who had "Alligator" shirts with "Chemise Lacoste" instead of Izod and everyone thought they were fake. Later found out they were bought overseas so we felt dumb. Back then faking a Lacoste shirt consisted of taking a seam ripper to store, taking the Croc off, then sewing it on a generic polo.

    I need to find one of my HS yearbook photos from the 80's, where I doubled-up on alligators...I always wore Izod shirts, belts, socks etc and used to take the alligator off a pair of socks and sew it on an Izod shirt so the alligators were humping; wore one of said gator-hump shirts for a yearbook photo.

    Maybe it was just a little swooshing over a long period of time.

    Hot damn, that is a great looking tie!!!


    In regards to those HF suits, I would have left both of them. Then again i am being more picky these days, but try to avoid anything with imperfections now unless Oxxford or Brioni, etc

    Thank you sir!



    Not one piece of RL on me my friend. :D



    Thank you, I actually "thrifted" that frame from an ally and painted the whale myself.


    I know, I'm slowly trying to make my house look like that. :happy:

    Here 'tis...mugging for the yearbook photo. I think it was sophomore year. No one raised a stink like they do these days...then again, I wasn't giving "the shocker" sign or anything.

    Back in AZ for less than half hour, hit up a will on my way from that airport that I normally don't make it to :lol:

    Lululemon outdoorsy, techie pants of some type (36), AG jeans (28)

    (my first) Charvet, Zegna, Ted Baker

    Not pictured is an awesome navy with gray pinstripe HF suit with super 120s Loro Piana fabric. Don't know the age because the HF tag was missing, but it looks more modern and is pretty awesome.

    Passed on a Celine tie that was stained and some old ugly Zegna ties. Also saw like 6 pairs of Zanellas, but not a single unicorn to be had among the lot. Was super stoked when I thought I found an electric burr coffee grinder, but when I pulled it out of the box it was the wrong thing :fu:

    quick ebay question -- i recently sold an item, the buyer didn't pay. after like 3 weeks, i re-listed the item. the samer shithead buyer wins again, but this time they win the item for like 25 bucks less. i don't want this person's money and i wont send them the item, because it is essentially rewarding awful behavior. can i not sell this item to the person without allowing them to leave me negative feedback? they haven't paid yet.
