Nicky: previously stocked at Barney's New York. Hard to find in the US at present. Massimo Bizzocchi: patterns are very hit or miss, though I appreciate Bizzocchi for being adventuresome in both palette and pattern. Finamore: I have no idea who they subcontract for ties, but the quality is excellent based on the few examples I have handled. Countess Mara is a sad relic of the past.

The most common rug sizes are 6x9' and 8x10'. There is a steep learning curve when shopping for rugs. Do you have a ballpark budget? I would not recommend spending more than $500 for synthetics. 6x9' handwoven wool rugs start at around $750-1000 in the big box stores (WestElm, C&B, Pottery Barn, etc.). 8x10' are closer to $1250-1500. Contemporary rugs are generally cheaper than traditional, though "luxury"/designer versions of the former exist. I bought my first...
This is pretty much my own experience on a Smalltimer scale. I tilt my 403b to fixed income for tax purposes and hold index funds in my taxable portfolios. I got in a bit late to catch the big upswing after 08/09, but I consider myself in decent shape... until I get married and/or have kids.EDIT: Pio did you ever contribute to a Backdoor IRA? I remember you asked a few years ago.
I'm in the market and need an 8x10' piece. I prefer classic as compared to contemporary and want 100% wool. My budget is 1k, so Im limited to liquidators or the secondary market. I also have a car to travel outside the City Open to suggestions
Search for my prior posts on this subject. I was last in Barcelona in 2012. I still want to try Tickets, and its newer relative, 41 Experience (moving after August 2nd).
That was a painful point to watch. The US deserved to win that game. Bradley has been terrible in this Cup. Jones was man of the match in the Ghana game for his defending and had one of the prettiest goals of the tourney so far RVP gets the nod for best goal
I need to subscribe to this thread. For what its worth, how are cheap Asians integrated into this sociologic paradigm? What if you display dissonant signals? E.g. Drive a Corolla and wear a Patek Philippe?

You just have to fund the account before the 15th. I haven't actually completed by Roth conversion from last year, which is really bad since the S&P appreciated 25% and the funds were sitting in a money market type fund.Are you trying to fund a Backdoor IRA? I use Vanguard, so I can't vouch for other brokerages, but you just use your existing account to fund a "new" Roth IRA. It's an all or nothing maneuver, so if you have existing funds with a tax deferred basis, they...
