DKNY Men's Leather Pants I Unfortunately Own

In September 0f 2005, New York based writer Brian Sack put up a hilariously written eBay auction trying to sell a pair of DKNY (Donna Karin New York) leather pants. Brian is a former ad copy writer, which explains how he is able to come up with some hilariously written material.

This eBay auction continues to generate hits long after the pants have sold (for $102.50 + shipping and handling), now up to over 3.16 million hits.

While he may have only received a fraction of the original purchase price for the pants (I imagine that they retail for significantly more than $120.50), the page has received a large amount of notoriety, having received coverage from such publications as The Independent, The New York Post, and Women's Wear Daily.

Brian Sack regularly contributes to Under the archives section, he has other hilariously written auctions for other items such as a gaudy 75-piece set of Versace flatwear and a "Marchmond Jones Edition" Macintosh computer.
