How much money do you have right now?
What are you going to buy next?
>tfw i will never have enough to buy this chair because i spend it all on Saint Laurent
pic related. need another 500 to get it
broke college kid with not much more than a grand to spend freely
probably some cheap boots
or chuck 2s to replace my dying vans
I need $300 more and im a teen with no job. Also not willing to suck a dick.
The overcoats that I see available in stores are usually not that good-looking and they're mostly your usual plain navy/brown/grey - more suitable for business and not casual events.
I'd like something that fits both casual occasions and something that I could wear to work. I also want something that is completely unconstructed for a really soft and comfortable feel, high armholes for maximum movement and wide lapels because skinny ones are quite gay.
I'm also a skinnyfat manlet, so finding my size in RTW before it gets sold out isn't that easy.
Fresh college grad with a job
Got about 15k in savings, several thousands put away in a 401k, car paid off, nice urban apartment, and quite a lot in assets.
Just bought some v rare Geos, so no Idea what I want next.
~$3300? in my bank account, but I gotta pay for my jacket soon so it'll be like $2400 or so.
Probably going to buy a pair of pods, or if a friend of mine comes through I may get hi & low ramones together for like $1200 :^)
Checking account has like 10k? But I have mortgage, food, electric, fucking time warner coming up and all the car notes plus student loan payment.
Probably the ex girlfriend coming over to "borrow" some cash because she is totally good for it...personally I just watching the decline in her health from the drug abuse
So I'll be pennyless at the 31st
in the us its $2390 retail, forgot about that. if you dont want to wait around for one to pop up for close to a grand (listed price is always higher than what the seller will take btw) then just get it in store i guess
Barcelona chairs are beautiful (and more comfortable than your average modernist chair) but there's SO many bad imitations of it it's crazy. Buy Knoll, preferably vintage and already broken in...
There are some knock offs that are nicer than the current day license like the modernica fiberglass chairs from eames Herman Miller does the ptfe cast bases
Or like the kartell ghost chair the original is more prone to scratches since it is made out of polycarbonate and the knock offs use acetate, a more natural form of plastic little more clear less prone to scratches more prone to shattering from impact (like knocking it against a table), chipping, and hairline cracks over the years.
But then you also get instances of shit like the steelcase pollck executive chair...which knoll turned a shitty design I to a classic used on fucking madmen
The polluck wasn't a nice chair until about the late 70s
>raped by student loans every month
>plus student loan payment
holy shit I got paid ~$450/month while I was studying for 5 years. loans? more like lmaos
That's fair. I'd argue that many italian repros of the Wassily chair are better than buying new licensed ones as well.
I remember Starck saying in an interview somewhere that the ghost chair will be hard to reproduce in the future because the nature of plastics will change. Interesting how the history of modern(ist) furnuture is essentially a study in industrial capabilities.

I actually considered purchasing some real Herman Miller shit - an Eames chair, don't judge me I'm a basic bitch deep down - before realizing that the knockoffs at 10% of the price were of roughly the same quality. There were some areas where there was obviously less attention paid (the Herman Miller cushioning is a lot softer out-of-the box whereas the replica takes time to soften, the leather is obviously marginally better, etc.) but I can't see it being worth paying that much more. It was kinda embarrassing when comparing the two in-person in a store.
My undergrad was basically free
I had to pay for maybe the last year and a half maybe
But there are no real grants or scholarships at the post grad level unless you're like from Compton and are like the illegitimate child of like Dr. King or some shit. An average dude in Cali....gotta go into debt
Basically a new Lexus every 6 months was tuition
Guessing you bought from vitra? Knockoffs who pay for licenses basically haha
But yeah undecided early on to get the real shit, not licensed reproductions from Herman Miller...like track down the real stuff from 1966 and have it restored.
Kind of autist and lame but whatever its a hobby
I don't think you can shit on people for buying repros of design classics. Most people won't know the difference (and won't care if you tell them). The only criteria is whether you can live with it. Plycraft did some really good knockoffs, better and stronger than the originals, and some shit tier ones. And buying broken models and restoring them is the best of all, because you're putting your own care into the piece. Just like getting a dress or coat tailored.
