Noted In Passing: Bread winner

“Taking inspiration from how the French carry bread under their arm, Fendi’s luxurious take on its classic ‘Baquette bag sees it rigidly reimagined in Plexiglas with a pristine pearlescence. As well as being slotted under the arm, it can also be carried hands-free with a cross shoulder strap. We think this style has something of the luxurious lunchbox about it. But before you close its metal ‘FF’ logo clasp, just make sure your snacks are firmly wrapped in clingfilm.”

    Under the arm.
    The horror…

    ghost– I think that model is a guy (of sorts), not an FTM critter. Check the Adam’s apple. . . anyway, here is a rave review from a “men’s” fashion magazine called Da Man, about the Fendi baguette bag for persons of the XY persuasion:

    “Fendi unveiled its Men’s Spring/Summer 2020 Collection in the paradise of Villa Reale, which is nestled between rows of flowers and a delicately flowing pond. . . . Of particular note, among the breezy collection that emphasizes functionality and utility in the Fendi way, there are two particular bags that instantly became our favorites. . . . [And] the men’s Fendi Baguette in the iconic FF pattern that has been finished all over with the jacquard FF motif. Understated, utilitarian and utterly luxurious, this bag can be worn either as a belt bag—using the strap that pulls out of the outer pocket on the back—or as a shoulder or cross-body bag by attaching the detachable shoulder straps.”

    this explains their national trend for yeast pits.

    Don’t think it’d qualify for concealed carry.

    Clicked on the link. What can one say about “men” who are, shall we say, unduly interested in “fashion”? I mean, there is a LOT I could say about them, but my mom told me if I can’t say anything nice about a person, I shouldn’t say anything.

    Relax, it’s a European Carry-All.

    “Listen punk. I’ve got a carob and kale, gluten-free croissant in here, and I’m not afraid to use it.”

    Nah, the punk knows you’re bluffing. The Biden administration has issued a “common-sense carob-control rule”. You have to register every carob you buy from a licensed dealer and pay $200 in fees.

    My “fashion statement” here in Oklahoma City: Cowboy boots, Wranglers, wide leather belt, Polo shirt, Stetson, .40 Smith & Wesson on my right hip and two spare magazines on my left hip. If heading for someplace fancy then I’ll put on a sport coat where, in my younger days, a pack of Marlboros would fit quite comfortably in the right inner pocket.

    Lower left corner of the picture has the cost of the whole ‘ensemble.’ (That has to be pronounced the way the French do, like you have a mouthful of marbles.)
    Total is 6,900 English pounds, or about 9,600 dollars.

    “Taking dementia from how the French smear cheese in their arm pits, Fendi’s lunatic take on its classic Fart Sack excretes it psychotically in Camembert with sodomic elan. As well as being crammed up the bung, it can also be rammed down the throat or carried hands free nailed between the eyes We think this grotesquerie has something of the luxurious nut sack about it. But before you close its metal GFY logo clasp, just make sure your nuts are firmly wrapped in clingfilm, or possibly stuffed in your ears.”

    RE: Pa Cat

    Artists–drama, music, and mostly film arts have always been so proud of the fact that they are “ahead of the times”, more importantly they are so proud to be “out of the box” thinkers. We have no numbers for certain as to how many artists are considered to be on the “autism spectrum”, but surely most spent their early years being overly excitable, nervous, rebellious, etc. What is truly sad is that the Hollywood/New York community figured out a way to get what they really wanted — unlimited freedom to do any damn thing they want to in public, thus the fable about homosexuality being “genetic” was created. Actually the APA (American Psychological Assoc.) has begun backing away from the “genetic” explanation which they supported from the late 1990’s until just recently, and now at least is focusing on the Autistic part of the desire to think out of the box in terms of sexuality.

    Looks like the libtards found a cure for that “toxic masculinity” stuff they’ve been whining about.

    I feel sorry for the model in this photo shoot. Look at him- his demeanor says, “My jacket’s too big, I’m wearing a necklace, I don’t care at all, and I”m about to pass out and fall backwards.”

    S.J. Perelman Would have had a field day with that magazine’s description; at least 4000 words.

  • Mike-SMO June 14, 2021, 11:34 PM

    Will it require a CCW (Concealed Carry Permit)? I am informed that for “professionals” of the night, a gym bag or purse, “ballasted ” with pipe fittings, bricks, or car parts are the “in” thing. Personally, I rather enjoyed the middle aged “sportsman” on a sting-ray bike with a baseball bat in a PVC pipe “holster”. Never know when a ball game might break-out. Does the “baggette” sling have a pouch for some stinky cheese?

    But as pointed out (sort of), if it ain’t concealed, it should be legal. Can I order mine with a Sched-40 steel insert?

    I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without ADt a my doubt, this is the pay easiest and most financially rewarding job I’ve ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life………… 𝙒𝙬𝙬.𝙅𝙤𝙗𝙘𝙖𝙨𝙝1.𝙘𝙤𝙢
