Neiman Marcus to be sold - Page 3

post #31 of 43
I'm definately in the "Bone is for the dog, meat is for the man" camp. I find nothing attractive about women who look like a 13 year old boy. Not quite sure precisely what it is about that smoothe curve from waist to hip to thigh on a woman but... well, it works for me..... Some of the models look like you'd get a papercut if you kissed'm.

I'm wondering if those who like the stick figure women like them because they feel there is less risk that they will get really "heavy" later in life. In other words, they'd rather totally avert the risk of having an overweight wife/girlfriend; so they avoid those women who have curves. But what if you could be assured that those curves would stay in nice proportion? How about someone like Halle Berry -- if you could freeze time (no aging process), wouldn't you prefer a body like that to a body like Paris Hilton's? On a side note, how the hell has this thread stayed in the Men's Clothing forum so long?

Because we are men. Plus, I sure the hell am not moving this to Streetwear and Denim.

I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't think it's possible for a woman to be too thin and I find thin waists and bony backs a major turn-on.  I met one this past weekend at a wedding and was instantly smitten.
I'm right there with you. Give me one with the ass of a 12 yr old boy. Plenty of those women every day on Madison.
Whoah brother, no sense incriminating yourself online. No disrepecting. Just that NAMBLA == bad.

That Chuck Franco does it old school. I used to go to a fair number of hip hop clubs in LA, and I'll tell you that most dudes prefer a bit of booty. As for point that the camera adds 10 lbs, that is the truth. However, what most men like is the illusion in SI (i.e. they prefer the +10 lbs.)

"Mr. Jackson, your lawyers are on the phone...."

Since the thread has already been thoroughly hijacked... Q: Why did Michael Jackson place a phone call to Boyz-2-Men? A: He thought it was a delivery service. Q: Why was Michael Jackson relieved of his Cub Scout Leader duties? A: He was up to a pack a day.

What can I say, I likes them thin. Just not like Mike.

From the PE Wire: The $5.1 billion buyout of luxury retailer Neiman Marcus Group won't be consummated until at least November, but certain market analysts already are asking how Texas Pacific Group and Warburg Pincus plan to generate positive returns with an offer price of $100 per share. Not only has NMG stock never traded at $100, but its recent sprint past $90 per share seems to have been largely driven by constant reports that deep-pocketed private equity firms were circling their wagons. Moreover, the 10.2x or 10.3x purchase price multiple (depending on who's doing the math) is higher than that of the average mega-buyout (according to 2004 S&P data), and also is higher than the average retail market acquisition. Since no major managerial changes are expected, the ROI equation seems to involve some serious expansion, including more brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S. and abroad, plus the continued build-out of its online catalog business. All well and good from a theoretical perspective, since NMG isn't on every urban street corner, like a Gap or Crate & Barrel. On the other hand, at least one analyst report yesterday (from Morningstar) suggested that NMG's very success is rooted in its customers' perception of exclusivity, which could be dampened by anything approaching omnipresence. Maybe TPG and Warburg are simply betting that NMG's target market of 45-60 year-olds making more than $200K per year will continue to grow, and that our current macro-economic problems (including that pesky GDP) will just be a momentary blip.
