What goes a round comes a round
I forgot the Jacket in my car this morning and I hadn´t posted here in ages so I figured a quick snap should do. My Laziness is sad but I don´t want to be sacrilegious and say this is just a forum . Anyway the tie is light tartan but I need a bit of colour at the mo as its been a long and wet few weeks and the brown cord tie I might have put on was just too much brown this morning. The boots are C & J Islays by the way.
Probably posted late at night after one too many.Train of thought was off?
Very true but only up to a point. I bought a Citterio Vitra Grand Repos and Ottoman instead of an Eames Lounge Chair. The prices have been rising steadily in the last few years and because of the cult status many with more money than sense are willing to pay whatever just to have one as a party piece for the cocktails on a saturday afternoon. I got a free eames stool as well in the deal(they were having a special offer) and I´m much happier with my choice. I cannot justify...

If I had to buy something to remind me of the 70´s or 80´s then...
This is what I was talking about. No Fake or even official reproduction has this beauty. In real life it has a beautiful light honeycomb colour to it.
Sorry I had moved my post as you were applying(moved to the eames chair real v fake thread. The 7kg wasn´t just the rubber mounts, it was 7kg overall. On a chair like that shaving weight only means shaving cost. If thats a compromise to quality then there is a problem. Theoretically you could replace the plywood with carbon fibre and the aluminium with titanium. Considering the energy and cost of moulding the plywood I can imagine carbon being slightly cheaper. That would...
I had an interest chat with an official restorer from a licensed manufacturer last week. He had an original there and one of their newest models. The original looked great and even though the new "original" looks great it just paled in comparison to the earlier product. He mentioned that of the original woods used its protected and virtually impossible to get some or at least manufacture with it unless the manufacturer can prove they wood had been felled before a specific...
