taxing
 n.— «It wasn’t long before people were descending on sport stores with a razorblade to slice off the Lacoste crocodile and sew it on their own cheap three-button polo shirt from the local market. “Taxing” became an epidemic, sparking moral panic stories in the Daily Express and Daily Mail, as kids were regularly relieved of their trainers, done over in the park for their Diadora Borg Elites or Adidas Trim Trabs.» —“Casual dress essential” by Jason Solomons Observer (U.K.) Aug. 14, 2005.
