    You are bidding on a mistake.
    We all make mistakes. We date the wrong people for too long. We chew gum with our mouths open. We say inappropriate things in front of grandma.

    And we buy leather pants.

    I can explain these pants and why they are in my possession. I bought them many, many years ago under the spell of a woman whom I believed to have taste. She suggested I try them on. I did. She said they looked good. I wanted to have a relationship of sorts with her. Iím stupid and prone to impulsive decisions. I bought the pants.

    The relationship, probably for better, never materialized. The girl, whose name I canít even recall, is a distant memory. I think she was short.

    Ultimately the pants were placed in the closet where they have remained, unworn, for nearly a decade. 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. Theyíre for men. Brave men, I would think. Perhaps tattooed, pierced men. In fact, Iíll 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.

    Again, theyíre menís pants, but theyíd probably look great on the right lady. Ladies can get away with leather pants much more often than men can. Itís a sad fact that men who own leather pants will have to come to terms with.

    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. For reasons unknown - perhaps to keep my options open, in case I wanted to become a pirate - I have shuffled these unworn pants from house to house, closet to closet. Alas, it is now time to part ways so that I may use the extra room for any rhinestone-studded jeans I may purchase in the future.

    These pants are in excellent condition. They were never taken on pirate expeditions. They werenít worn onstage. They didnít straddle a Harley, or a guy named Harley. They just hung there, sad and ignored, for a few presidencies.

    Someone, somewhere, will look great in these pants. Iím hoping that someone is you, or that you can be suckered into buying them by a girl youíre trying to bed.

    Please buy these leather pants.

    Question & Answer Answered On

    Q: I'm confused, is Donna Karan a rock star or a transvestite?
    Sep-23-05

    A: It's a very fine line, really.


    Q: I have a friend that emails these types of auctions to me for a good laugh and I must admit, yours is the best I have seen in a long time. Your wording and demeanor are perfect. If I had the cake to spend on something I would never wear right now, I would buy them just for the simple fact you made me laugh that hard. I wish you made commercials on TV so I wouldn't be forced to channel surf when they came on. Kudos to you. Are all your descriptions this funny or is this a fluke? Your replies are excellent and this auction should be on Letterman or something. Good luck and thanks for the laugh.
    Sep-23-05

    A: I used to write commercials, but they're hard to make funny because the people who make the final decisions are idiots. But maybe you'll like Banterist.com or Sixtysecond.com


    Q: LOL. I once knew a guy who actually wore leather pants, loved them, and was very popular with them. That was 15 years ago...he was Italian...and my uncle's boyfriend. Enough said.
    Sep-23-05

    A: Italy shares France's reputation for adultery, leather pants, and aggressiveness to women. Except for your uncle's boyfriend, of course.


    Q: Love the pants but . . . I wonder, how many thongs do you think could be made from them? Fruitcreek.
    Sep-23-05

    A: For Americans? 15. French? 45.


    Q: Are these pants worthy of cruising for transvestites while in my Maserati? I just got one and need an outfit that would go with my new car.
    Sep-22-05

    A: I think leather pants would accent that mid-life crisis quite nicely.


    Q: I just wanted to tell you that you made me laugh aloud! First, when my husband was in high school he apparently bought a white satin Michael Jacksonesque multi-zippered jacket from The Chess King under strikingly similar circumstances. I wonder if it is the same chick . . . Second, my husband and I recently hosted a white trash party, Trailerpalooza. We had been to a 38 Special concert and decided to knock off thier look. So we each bought pleather pants (though these beauties would have been perfect!) and I then sewed flame fabric to the bottoms, as if it was lapping up the legs. We also got leather jackets which we adorned with a bit of flame fabric. Well, somehow, I came out looking like a badass, but my poor husband looked like a homo. In fact someone actually said, -It's amazing how pleather makes Shari look so bad, and Rick so gay.- I wish I had a picture on my computer, because I think it would make you laugh! Anyway, good luck with the sale of your magic pants!
    Sep-22-05

    A: When I was a busboy at El Torito I remember a waiter who saved up hundreds for a replica Michael Jackson 'Beat It' jacket. Zippers everywhere. At the time I thought he was a god. Now I think he's probably buried in someone's tomato garden.


    Q: Thank you for the inspiration. I am now thinking of ebaying every little thing....and I do mean little thing that I ever wore to be a man pleaser/enticer. That would have to include stiletto heels, leather bustiers, gstrings and the like.....hmmm, wait a minute....now that I think about it....I might have to bid on those pants and create an ensemble....for myself. Did I mention that I am 5'2?
    Sep-22-05

    A: Hello Senator Clinton.


    Q: FUNNY!! I too have a pair of leather pants to sell and for very similar reasons. Mine also have severe case of closet shrinkage. Thanks for the laugh and happy selling. tom
    Sep-22-05

    A: Hmm. Maybe we know the same girl.


    Q: I would like to be tough, gay or a rock star. Do you think purchasing and subsequently donning these trousers will help?
    Sep-22-05

    A: Probably not if you call them 'trousers.' A true rockstar would say 'pants' or 'duds' or something more rock-star-y, like 'ladykillers.'


    Q: If they did still fit.. and I wasn't married, would you wear them for me? LOL.. best of luck!
    Sep-21-05

    A: Yes, but only if I was wearing a pink tank top and re-enacting Billy Squier's regrettable 'Rock me tonight' video.


    Q: No question, just wanted to tell you this is the best listing i've ever read. I'm sorry it didn't work out with the short girl, but am so proud of you for never wearing these. Good luck with your sale!
    Sep-21-05

    A: Thank you. I'll be free of them in less than two days, and at least $76 closer to owning a yacht.


    Q: I don't actually need the pants... and they wouldn't fit my less than womanly curves even if I could pull them off- but I could not resist telling you what a fabulous ad this is. While reason prevailed in the end, I was almost convinced to buy the pants if for no other reason than to see if I could be coy enough to get a man to wear them in hopes of a relationship with me... fabulous ad, just fabulous.
    Sep-21-05

    A: Sadly I lack the ability to sell people things they don't need - unlike Ron Popeil and The Sharper Image.


    Q: You express yourself exactly like my ex-fiancee. I had to check if you lived in Boulder, CO just to see if you were him. I really didn't think anyone else had his matter of fact mixed with twisted humor personality. Ten years ago I was just ending our relationship so I was going thinking that possibly he bought these pants to try and woo a little waitress vixen with an IQ half that of her bust size. By the way, the last person that claimed that you were stereotyping, did you for some reason envision Dueling Banjos playing in the background with a man sporting a greased back mullet and a makeshift spittoon, and, of course, comfy leather pants, or was that just me?
    Sep-21-05

    A: Yes, the grammar and tone said 'Deliverance' but the leather pants in church said 'Wham UK'. So I'm confused.


    Q: you enjoy stereotyping people that wear leather dont ya, you think owning leather is gay, let me tell you something i am not gay, i am not famous, dont ride a bike, and unlike i aint a coward. i do own 2 pairs of them, to me they are more comfy than blue jeans ever will be, i where them anywhere i want including church, no ones ever said nothing about them
    Sep-20-05

    A: More important: Do you need a pair of 34x34 leather pants?


    Q: I am in a band, but do not wear leather pants. However, if I DID wear leather pants, your pants are the ones I would buy because your description is...eloquent and touching in a leatherish sort of way. May we post your ad on our site?
    Sep-20-05

    A: I think I answered this already, but eBay is asking it again for some reason. Thank you for being polite and seeking permission. Sure, you can post it. After all, I'm trying to sell pants.


    Q: Bsack, I'm an editor for Poor Mojo's Almanac(k) (http:// http://www.poormojo.org), a weekly online magazine now entering its sixth year of publication. We'd like to run the text of your posting, with the image of the glorious pants, as a rant on our site. May we do so? Our submission guidlines can be found here: http://www.poormojo.org/submission.html (Long story short: we owe you a beer for one piece--provided you came to Ann Arbor or SF, CA to pick it up--or will reward you with a PMjA t-shirt after we've published 5 of your pieces.) Interested? Best, Dave . . . Editor and Technologist PMjA
    Sep-20-05

    A: Sure, if you don't mind that it's already on Banterist.com


    Q: Well, it looks like you're going to sell them. They're too big for me anyway and I'm female. You're a great writer -- so natural, so funny. I think you should be in standup. Thank you so much for making my day.
    Sep-19-05

    A: Thank you for the kind words. In lieu of standup I post things on Banterist.com. The hours are better and there's no drink minimum.


    Q: For Mr. VBMX: If he were gay, he would know what boot cut means. What does VBMX mean?
    Sep-19-05

    A: I'm not sure. It sounds like a missile.


    Q: Hi, Sorry I don't want the leather pants but just had to write and say I really had a good laugh at your description!! I really hope you sell them .... and not to a guy! Good luck! Jeannette
    Sep-18-05

    A: If you change your mind and want the pants, I'll be waiting patiently by the keyboard.


    Q: Seen your ad on VBMX.com.....are you gay? LOL Just kidding!! I would claim these on VBMX!! Now all the guys are gonna think of you as a sissy!! LOL!!! Good luck bro!!
    Sep-18-05

    A: Thanks. That's a lot of exclamation points.
    Q: Are these boot cut pants and if not what is the width measurement of the bottom of the pant leg?
    Sep-17-05

    A: I do not know what a boot cut is, but the pants are 8.25 inches wide at the bottom.

    Good Lord, I have a pair of leather pants just like that and have never worn them either. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but every time I put them on to out in them, I looked in the mirror and thought, "I can't go out in these." So they've remained, unworn, in my closet for years. Anyone here wanna buy 'em? Btown? Hicks? Geezer?

    What size are you?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I think I've seen my History teacher wear them. Maybe. She wears a lot of weird stuff though.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.
