Nope.


Well I entered a competition and a MTM one from this designer is the prize, it's too young for me so I was going to give it to you if I won. I will give it to Lubel instead because the cut is supposed to make you look 2" taller and 7lbs lighter, more comedy value.

well lets break it down. maybe 4 dollars worth of material, 2 dollars worth of thread, get some 8 year old to assemble the whole thing for about 50 cents, then collect $493.50 in profit. why doesn't everybody do this??!

Most luxury textiles cost about $10 - $15 a yard even when they're purchased in bulk. You'll spend more on the textiles alone than your mil-surplus shorts before you've even designed the shorts, extrapolated the patterns, sourced labor and notions, and finally sold the piece to a boutique for enough of a mark up to pay your bills before they have to sell it for enough of a mark up to pay their bills.

regardless, they're still shorts. they are not any better than any other pair of shorts. you are only paying for the label. maybe if it were about exclusivity, like they only make 100 pairs or something, and then the designer kills himself so they cannot be duplicated. then it would be worth $500.

I never said they were a smart buy, I said there was some sense to their price.

That's how it works, except the designer usually doesn't kill themselves unless they're Alexander McQueen.

No custom stuff it's topshop.

Topshop, Topman, Burtons, Miss Selfridge, Evans, Wallis and Dorothy Perkins are a retail group called Arcadia that specialise in mass produced clothing. Evans does outsize so if you know any cross dressers that's a good place for them to buy stuff, my brother the cop used to work there a long time ago.

Some of those patterns date back to the company's founding in the early 20th century, and quite a few of those sweaters are very substantial. By the way, you can usually get SNS Herning cheaper through their affiliates.

http://www.saintjamesboutique.com/ is another excellent knitwear label. Both are probably substantial enough to outlast you with proper care.

You would run the risk of a serious beating for wearing that in some parts of the highlands, really. Plus the white background Dress Stewart is only meant for ladieswear, though I have met many Scots who think it is for evening dress and have worn kilt in it.

Doug is there a certain plaid that is taboo to wear ever? Or one that is like the apitome of wearing a hells angels death head jacket? Do the fags have a print to tell everybody they are faggots?

MEGA JESUS-SAMA
22nd December 10, 03:57 PM
Well, the problem with it is that there's no single commonality between the different tartans. No color is repeated throughout, nor is there a common pattern, so it just looks like pieces from four different jackets sewn together. If I was going to create a mess of a jacket like that I'd select at least one element that repeats across all four tartans. I'd make it a single-button with a low stance too. The guts of the jacket would look regal to balance out the kitsch of the mixed patterns.

Considering that tartans were invented in the 17th century to sell to Scottish hipsters, no.

There is a Tartan reserved for the Royal family called the Balmoral.

Other than that not really but wearing a Campbell tartan in most of the rest of the highlands and the islands or a Stewart in Argyle will possibly get you a kicking.

Most tartans were invented in the 17th century as MJS said but there are older ones, only a few from Scotland and believe it or not a couple from Denmark.

He defeated Arthur in single combat over three rounds and broke the sword from the stone, he then became an ally, a friend and a knight of the round table as did some of his sons both legitimate and illegitimate(Tor, Aglovale, Lamorak, Dornar, and Percival), he was still with Arthur at the last battle. The comedy bumbling version originates from TH Whites the once and future king.
