Classy: Fancy Business Suit Pinstriped With Tiny 'EFF YOU's

August 2, 2017


This is the $6,500 'Eff you' three-piece wool pinstripe suit available from tailor David August. If you keep up with boxing, you may recall Conor McGregor wore one to a recent McGregor v. Mayweather press tour stop in Los Angeles. And now you can own one yourself. I just bought eight of them in different colors -- one for every day of the week. "There's only seven." What? "There's only seven days of the week." Nooooo -- there's Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Funday. "Funday is not a day of the week." Then when am I supposed to go to bottomless mimosa brunch with my girls?! "What are you talking about?" I don't know, I watched one of my sister's shows on the DVR.

Keep going for one more shot.





Thanks to JD, who agrees this is how you nail job interviews.

    This is exactly my mood today. Or most days but especially today. Can i get a suit with a bigger font? No need to be shy, i want people to see i hope they fucking die.

  • spikedeclue

    As a person with some disposable income and a desire to both look good and offend people, I love this more than I can express with words but still wouldn't spend that much money on this. For the record, I've spent more than this on a bicycle.

  • Geekologie

    I've got some money spending ideas

  • FearlessFarris

    Is the suit so expensive that he can't afford socks?

    It's a thing for actors and others who don't need to project competence.

  • Bling Nye

    I don't try not to judge people on how they choose to dress. I had to edit that because I do tend to think the frat-bros are douchebags.

  • FearlessFarris

    That's admirable of you, but 99% of the world does.

    Most people dress with intent, too. They're deliberately trying to convey a message about themselves by what they wear.

    Case in point, a guy wearing a "F-YOU" suit is definitely trying to send a message.

  • Bling Nye

    Might just depend on who you hang out with. I can assure you, there are a lot of people in the world that really don't give a fuck about what someone wears.

    Besides, I don't think it's really as nefarious as you imagine... the choice to not wear socks could simply be one of comfort in hot weather (go see what gets worn with a linen suit in Milan or Naples), and not a 'message' about themselves... beyond the fact they think it's more comfortable to not wear socks in hot weather.

    FUCK YOU suit is definitely sending a message. Literally. But it doesn't make the argument that all dress choices are statements beyond basic comfort.

  • FearlessFarris

    I'm sure you're correct that comfort factors in to the "no socks" thing. But clothing isn't quite as simple as that. Consider the decision to wear a linen suit vs. the decision to wear gym shorts and a t-shirt. Both are about comfort in hot weather, but each sends an entirely different message.

    People may not "care," in a negative judgmental sense, but they are certainly drawing conclusions and forming opinions.

  • Bling Nye

    Your comparison only works if you're putting the two people in the same situation, where one or the other would be incongruent based on societal norms, i.e., wearing a suit at the gym, or gym clothes at a restaurant. Neither would bear a second glance otherwise in a neutral setting. Or are you saying if you just pass either on the street, you're going to form opinions and draw conclusions about that person? Seems judgmental and a waste of energy to me.

    But that's just, like, my opinion, man.

  • FearlessFarris

    You yourself are making a "judgment" in saying that gym shorts don't belong in a restaurant. (I agree with you, btw.)

    The concept of judgment doesn't have to have a negative connotation. As you walk down a city street, you're constantly judging everyone you encounter--consciously and subliminally. Clothing or style of dress is just one factor that is taken into consideration. That's not a wrong or bad thing. The ability to make assessments like that allows a person to successfully function in society.

  • Bling Nye

    I think we agree to some extent, and I know what you're getting at in that our brains seek to explain and put order to everything around us at all times, I get that, and don't dispute it... however, when you apply it specifically to outward appearances of other people, be it clothing, style of dress, or otherwise, I think the assumptions you make (I would use the word "assumption" instead of "judgement" really, since the judgement is an assumption, no?) about the person's personality or abilities or capabilities becomes problematic and actually contributes, arguably, to dysfunction in society. For example, look at the Sikhs that continue to be targeted simply because they wear a turban... people assume they're Muslim. Be it a turban, burka, socks with sandals or a suit with no socks, I think it's important to separate observation and assumption/judgement.

    I know we can't fully escape making judgments and assumptions every day, but I know we can make less; we would all be better off if everyone were less judgmental and made fewer assumptions, wouldn't you agree?

  • FearlessFarris

    I agree. There are healthy and unhealthy assumptions.

    Assuming someone is dangerous because they are wearing traditional religious garb is unhealthy.

    Assuming someone is dangerous because they have face tattoos and are visibly intoxicated in public is a healthy assumption.

    Assuming someone is unemployable because they don't wear socks with their suit is good judgment.

  • Bling Nye

    We agree on the first assumption, certainly.

    I think the second assumption "dangerous" is more going to be "poor decision maker" for me since I've seen at least a half-dozen different face-tat drunks, none of which struck me as dangerous, but certainly fairly good at making bad decisions.

    And the third assumption, that kicked all this off... I think "unemployable" because you didn't wear socks with a suit is, I apologize, simply asinine. Wearing Crocs on the other hand.......... ;)

  • FearlessFarris

    Crocs with a suit should be an arrestable offense.

  • Bubbubsky

    Insert the word "stupid" between "a" and "thing".

  • TheQiwiMan

    Joke's on the guy wearing the suit since it looks ugly AF.

  • GeneralDisorder

    So you're saying this UMF should buy one? Noted.
