Three piece suit made in China.
And you wear it well.
Ah so, and the knives
There’s a difference between a smart suit and a suit that smarts!
Hey, man! Sharp threads!
OK, but you can keep the barbed-wire underwear.
Be very careful with the inside leg.
This is how Karl Lagerfeld died.
The kind of suit that may a-peel to a stab-le genius.
For all budding assassins.
How suite of them.
Always carry a suite of knives in your suit.
It would be a grave insult, to be converted to a corpse with cheap chippy Chinese cutlery.
Dress to kill
In 2017, total world crude steel production was 1,691.2 million tonnes (Mt). The biggest steel producing country is currently China, which accounted for 49.2% of world steel production in 2017.
If their knives are any example, 99% of that production is utter garbage.
Taking the cutting edge of fashion literally.
Q. What comes out of a furnace screaming and cursing.
A. Crude steel.
Actually. These suits, are just the thing for a young blade.
In fact there Armani pockets for your knives.
If you can Hackett, Canali Givenchy Huntsman, a Prada.
That’s it. I’ve finally tied my tongue in a knot. Me voy a dormir. Nos vemos mañana.
I’m sure that that was not what ZZ Top meant when they sang that every girl’s crazy about a sharp-dressed man.
No matter how you slice it, this suit is for those who enjoy splitting hairs over fashion.
Seasonal wear – for The Ides of March.
@Marum: They forgot to include a pair of Caesars.
@DnT above. If the centre pivot breaks and you lose one blade, does it then become a “scissor”?
Or is it automatically get elevated to the 11th Dan, and reach that exalted state known as JUNK?
An amorphous substance which invades houses. It has no known state, form, or shape.
It is asexual – inasmuch as it is self propagating, and ever expanding.
It is both physically present and not present. ie. It takes up finite space, yet can be removed by the exercise of willpower.
Junk has an affinity for humans. Put your junk out to be collected, and you will find other humans sorting through it to take some, to their homes.
Finally. Junk cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be changed from location to another.
Getting back to knives. Has anyone here tried Ceramic Knives. If so. How are they?
I would imagine that they are both, very sharp, and extremely brittle.
@Marum | 9:31 am: Sounds, to me, almost like a physical example of “verbing”. (“scissor” is a verb). i.e. break the noun in half, ya got 2 verbs.
@Marum | 10:35 am: Whose “junk” is asexual? Not mine! 😛
BTW, all joking aside, re-using so-called junk has been a part-time occupation of mine since I was a kid. I’m one of those people who will selectively take home stuff that other people leave by the kerb. We have some pretty good furniture I made or repaired from other people’s junk.
@Marum | 10:45 am: Haven’t used one myself but, from what I read, even the better ones can’t can’t handle side forces without snapping. My guess is that the number of butchers using ceramic knives is effectively zero.
@Marum 10:13 :
Q. What comes out of a pipe screaming and cursing?
A. Crude oil.
Ideal for the sharp dresser.
