It can't be entirely that. The tourists, at least, are leaving NY with the same stuff they brought with them. I think the real reason has to be that so many more people are in a good mood when they are leaving NYC than when they are going to NYC.The fight usually starts when someone tries to put something in a partially-full overhead bin and someone else says "Don't touch my stuff, asshole!" It goes downhill from there.
As far as decor goes, it's hard to beat LAX. If prison had airports, they'd look like LAX does.But that article does explain something that's always puzzled me. About a third of the time when I am on a flight to NYC, an actual fight will break out -- usually about overhead bin space -- during boarding. This almost never happens on flights leaving NYC. I can only assume that all these people are stressed about having to navigate La Guardia.

I think I am going to start collecting these. From a description of a marble cube in a design catalog, Our cube's crisp geometric proportions and flat planes are informed by American and Italian designs of the 1970s.
The two most important things for black tie are not being "creative" and making sure your DJ fits properly. The first one is easy. Just stick to the classic look -- The Black Tie Guide is a good resource. Resist, at all costs, the urge to "express" yourself. The second is also pretty easy. It's not even that expensive. If you buy the cheapest 40% polyester classically-styled DJ and trousers you can find and then spend 100 GBP having it tailored to fit you properly, you...
Speaking for myself, the last thing on your list ought to be a bespoke evening shirt. First, you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between a bespoke evening shirt and an OTR evening shirt if you are wearing a waistcoat. Second, there are so many other things that benefit more from the investment. Proper shoes, well-fitting DJ, grosgrain facings,studs and cuff links, etc., all probably have a greater impact.
Interesting comparison. The chair is by a UK designer. It's clever and has potential but it's still more in the art category rather than the furniture category. The bungee cord on these early models is apparently a patch that fixes a minor design flaw.
Is there something you'd like to tell us, Patrick?
