Probably one of the most daring yet subtle purchases I've seen on here, maybe since snaye bought some leather trousers or gbh with his original head turning style. Really like it EB. Almost flows like liquid in the way the hem rises and drops. In all honesty, if you were doing it for the sesh, it would be firing shots all over. Timeless and effortless style EB, think you're taking the crown off snaye for topper purchases that suit you. Think being taller might help clothes look better

Deffo a keeper at bargain sale price, some edgy purchases really coming off.

My first impressions were

1) EB has bought a half ripped shirt and thinks its rad.
2) He is infact wearing a top chewed by some dog.
3) He was so desperate to take a picture that he snagged in a door or something and hadn't realised yet.
4) It was in a sale.

Looks like a combination of 1 and 4.

Without being too milspex, I think if you're going wear that, like the others said you have to wear everything in that style and live that style. Haunted man in black johnny cash etc but then you're a self personified Essex boy. I thought tronics in pink floyd was odd because you associate pink floyd with people who have a name like Davey Owen, bus driver by day biker by night, few tats on the arm is about 45-60 years old and rides a British version of a Harley…

Surely that's going to fail the pub test?

I actually think it would be ok if the edges weren't too jagged?
Maybe cut it yourself so it's just a little less like a witches dress?
I'm not taking the piss here. Just make it a little less jagged and more symmetrical.

Fishermans friend advising him to take a pair of scissors and cut it up to form a DIY style crop top is taking the piss.

Why not?
It's hardly going to ruin it. The hem is already quite rough and it wouldn't look like an amateur job the way it looks now.
If you really like it that way don't do it, but he's admitted its a little lop sided.
I'm just saying try and make it a little more symmetrical and then it might just pass the pub test.

Mr X you're an idiot.
Anyone here with an ounce of sense can either take it to a tailor or do it themselves with a cheap sewing machine.

If your gonna bring up a jacket I wore years ago every time I post you better think of a better punchline mate.

Considering how much he'll have paid for it, I think backing would be the sensible choice. It doesn't look good, doesn't suit his style, and if he gets too close to a bonfire next week there'll be nothing left anyway.
