TRANSLATION : this american woman's mission is to demonstrate to the world her grand collection of sweaters that she has collected over the course of her life...The truth is that the sight of it damages the sight (the eyes; our vision), and no only because the sweaters are uglier than beating a priest with a whisk...my mom use to say, "estaba mas feo que pegarle a dios en quaresnas!" which means, "he was uglier than beating jesus on the cross as he died for our sins!"

Please, PLEASE have someone videotape you blowing your head off with a gun so I can see this world rid of one of the many most butt fucking ugly people I have ever seen. You are a highschool loser and you have no life. I can't believe you are alive. You should have been killed in that car accicident or whatever. For the love of God. If you can't do the above request, just have someone shoot you. Thank you for your time, it is no longer needed.

You have to be one of the funniest human beings on Earth. The world would be a far better place if it was full of people like you!! At first Ii thought this was all serious and I felt sorry for you...then the school formal pics...I am currently bored shitless at work. Thank you for bringing some
light into my day!!


KEEP SMILING!

Hi Leslie,


Luke here, we have been perusing through your neat sweater selection on your website.  You have some really wicked style and flair going on all up in there.
My friend Andy was looking over my shoulder whilst i hunted out a new sweater, and he said there was something about you, an instant connection from you to him that he couldn't get out of his mind, basically he used to go out with a girl a little while ago from Douglas county, who was the spitting image of you.  this girl that he dated for a short time was sadly killed in a freak crisp eating accident.  From then on his life has seemed some what incomplete.
Knowing that you are a high flying B list celeb of the fashion industry i know that it would be near enough impossible for him to meet you and take you for a meal at Hollywood's rotating restaurant.  So my request is.........could you please e mail my friend Andy Reeves a signed picture of yourself. This would make a young man very happy, and he would stop pinning and get on with his life after the tragedy that happened to his childhood romance Ethel.
 
Many thanks for your help!!
 
PS If you could be wearing the "Flowered fortune cookie" sweater in the picture, as this was his favourite.
 
 
Thanks for your time, and any help that you can provide.
 
Regards
 
Luke (Salisbury, England)

Thou hath truly been infected with the power of thyn gem sweater.
Remarkable to say the very least.Thanks and Regards,

Kaine and Hayley

Hello Leslie,


I have finally found someone who has the same passion for sequins sweaters as I do.
My passion started as a young boy who would never let my grandmother get rid of her
sweaters that were so full of life. I remember riding my bike down the street while the street lights bounced off my sweaters into the living rooms of those who lived on the block. I was know around my neighborhood as "Frankie Sparkles". I am also a former art student that can really appreciate the craftsmanship put into a beautiful sweater.
I'm just glad to see that someone else out there has the passion and drive that I do when it comes to style.

Thank you,
" Frankie Sparkles"

I would like to begin by saying that this site really opened my eyes to a world that I had no Idea existed! Thank you bunches for you courage in the face of diversity! Your stoic stare and golden painted on pants screams to me "I am an individual who loves sweaters, and I don't care what you snobs think"! Kudos to you my friend!
I am a closet sweater enthusiast, and am befuddled that there is an army of loyalists fighting the good fight! You are an innovator and misunderstood in your generation. Keep up the good work, and just try to keep it real no matter what the cost! If there is anything that I can do for you, maybe marketing, modeling, or sending out news letters, please do not hesitate to contact me! I think there is a real market in these dark times, for such a beacon of light! Jumping Jahosa phat Yee Haw!!
I have attached a picture to show the world that I am no longer scared of my garment affliction! Thanks again for the site, and hopefully soon I will be coming out with my own. I am thinking about maybe stockings or bringing back the slap bracelet!
Go Gaelic Eagles!!

Here I am in self-portrait:

Hi There, it's Mrs. Jason Beaty.  My name is Marcella.

I keep going back to your site and looking at your sweaters.  I don't wear new clothes because I cannot afford them (raising a family) and have passed over hundreds of them (Gem Sweaters) while searching for things I end up bringing home from the thrift stores here in Colorado.  I mentally make a nose wrinkle if the sweater is really outrageous, but mostly I have learned to weed them out of my conscious vision.  I pass over the gem sweaters as though they are not even there, moving on to my plain earth-toned shaker-knit cardigans and ballet sweaters. 
I don't want to sound disrespectful, I just do this as a course of habit, to be efficient.  But now that I have seen your collection, I will see them as the art form they are.
But I don't think I could wear one. 
 
I noticed that you look older than the avearge art-school student.  This is of interest to me because I plan to enter art school at an older age, when my two children have grown.  I am inspired that  you are in art school and plan to graduate.  I hope to be able to do that one day. 
 
My very best to you,
 
Marcella

Subject:  You are incredibly funny, this isnt spam.
From:  thegentlesherpa
 
Hey LESLIE,

I just came across your site, as well as the perripheral sites to it, and simply HAVE to let you know that you left me incredibly impressed, and laughing my arse off. Your sweaters, June Huxley (who is, by the way, Aldous Huxley's ex-wife, to my mind. Call it viewers perogative.), Titanic Club, I find it all hillarious.

The single best work, and the one that prompted me to write to you, was 'Leslie's Will'. You are a weird female jesus-hitler, and all I can say is that I wish I went to high school with you, and if I ever get a chunk of cash to make my movies (not porn), I'm looking you up again. We could make meelions. Think about it.

Just had to be said. Now I feel better. Intestinally. Oh yes, Merry Christmas.
Joe

Hello,

I found your site via Red Lipstick and have to say I am blown away.
That sweater collection is so fab, I can't tell you how jealous I am.

I can only hope that when your film is finally released, it's in
3-D....D for dazzle of course!

Have a dazzling new year!

Saw your site posted to metafilter today
(http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/30428) and wanted to compliment you on
your cool coolection and nice presentation. As you can see in the
comments to the post, there is a growing backlash against people who
collect and/or reappropriate stuff that's in "bad taste", as if you were
throwing it back in people's faces with contempt. I sense this is not
your aim.

Noticed you were from Ames. I myself hail from Des Moines. I've
collected mesh-and-foam farmers caps for about 5 years and showcased
them on my site (http://www.meshcap.com/hats1.html). When these hats got
really popular this year, I'll admit I found it annoying, but nothing
was more infuriating to me than people accusing me of being some hipster
ironist trying to make fun of hicks. As an Iowan, it kind of blew my
mind that people would think my website was a disrespectful gesture. I
eventually stopped updating the site after the fashion phenomenon got
too Hollywood, but I still collect the caps.

Thanks for doing your thing--
Jake Nassif

Your sweater link was sent to me from a friend who was like, lol wtf check out this lame assed site.  My first sense was, yeah, that's lame.  Reminds me of peeps I saw when I went to school in the deep south.

Then I dug deeper and I was like, hey, she's got balls.  Mad props to the person who puts themselves out there.  

Then I sent the link to my wife, and she started digging deeper:

We realized that you just may be the rare sort of person we'd make sole executor of our estates.

XOXOXO
