That was a rude and ignorant comment. I think your assessment was wrong, you're not too old or too experienced to learn something from me. Now if you like your leather plain and don't care for the laced edging, that is fine but to categorize it as "gay" or "pimp-like" is uncalled-for.
Yes, it was uncalled for and I apologize. Hey, along with holsters, did I show you how I apply sequins to my tennis shoes and rhinestones on my blue jeans?
