    ...in two years.

    In the latest GQ, Bissinger writes a first-person piece where he details how many leather jackets, pairs of boots, evening jackets and leather pants (!) he owns. He's such a prolific consumer of Gucci products that Gucci flew him to Milan for fashion week.

    I haven't gotten all the way through it yet, and I can't find a link since it's just out in the magazine, but the man's clothing collection is crazy.
  2. I guess douche cones to mind for a man that spends too much on clothes.

    #1: Gucci suits are like Corvettes. They're a great way of telling people you didn't always have money.

    This is the kind of rich person I hate.

    Yeah. He should spend it on collecting baseball cards or doing lines of blow.

    Do you have any idea what I'm referencing?

    He and Gwyneth Paltrow must shop together:


    "Paltrow, 40, has posted her spring fashion "essentials" to her popular blog, Goop. Unfortunately, women looking for the Oscar-winning actress’ style must also have deep pockets. ...Paltrow's picks total more than $450,000, according to E! News."
  8. I'll bet he wears skinny leg jeans.
    Leather skinny leg jeans.

    In other words, he actually bought all the stuff that magazines like GQ tell you to buy?

    The big question is, when he wears Gucci, is he still willing to shake hands with a homeless person? [cross-thread]
