Buy these leather pants
November 07, 2005 News & Politics
Here is an E-Bay posting by the very funny Brian Sack, the author of the weblog, Banterist.com, trying to hawk a pair of DKNY leather pants that he bought to impress a long-gone girlfriend:
I would like to emphasize that: Aside from trying these pants on, they have never, ever been worn. In public or private. I have not worn these leather pants for the following reasons:
I am not a member of Queen.
I do not like motorcycles.
I am not Rod Stewart.
I am not French.
I do not cruise for transvestites in an expensive sports car.
These were not cheap leather pants. They are Donna Karan leather pants. They're for men. Brave men, I would think. Perhaps tattooed, pierced men. In fact, I'll go so far as to say you either have to be very tough, very gay, or very famous to wear these pants and get away with it.
They are size 34x34. I am no longer size 34x34, so even were I to suddenly decide I was a famous gay biker I would not be able to wear these pants. These pants are destined for someone else.There's an even funnier Q&A section where Sack responds to questions from potential buyers. [LINK thanks to one of my BFFs Shona]
