This is decidedly untrue. While it won't happen over night, establishing a pattern of good payer history (even in spite of past (mis)deeds) will only help you down the road.

well as the person who does most of the interviews, I can say that I do usually ask vague questions about inspiration, but the answers are usually awful and get cut, or the designers don't want to talk about it. you can also find those types of interviews everywhere, and I'd like to offer something new rather than simply rehashing what has been done over and over before. that's not to say that my interviews are amazing, but I like the focus we have one retail and the business of fashion.

Eh, Firefox with add-ons. I wish I could be more fancy.

I've considered a CC for a while now, but I'm pretty terrible at controlling spending. What's the best card for building credit/garnering rewards (mile points??) that also has some built in limitations so I don't go too crazy?

You'll spend more with a CC. It's not even debatable. You'll spend more with a higher credit limit too. Serious discipline needed.

Fuck. This. Creditcardtalk.

Just use your credit card as if you were spending cash.  If you spend $100 on your cc, leave $100 in your bank account to pay it off.  The $100 is not yours anymore.  It's gone.  It's really that simple.

None. Every time I get close to my limit, they just raise it. It's a trap uhoh.gif

I am a big fan of my discover card. The customer service is outstanding, the rotating cash back program is great, and you don't have to worry about points and shit. You can use your cash back like actual cash on amazon instead of trying to buy gift cards and shit at $100 to get an optimal point conversion.

RFT: Y-3 is making leather cargo pants for SS14. Also, a hoodie that essentially becomes a ninja-style mask.

That is all.






Anything to stop the credit card momentum. I come here specifically to avoid thinking about credit cards and all the havoc they can bring.

I like Discover, and their cashback is great, but the problem is that no one excepts it.  For that, I prefer Visa and MC. You have one of each, and you can buy anything from anywhere that accepts CC.  Overseas though, it's useful to have an Amex, just for the service.  It's also useful to carry a fair bit of cash, since much of the world is not as credit card friendly as the US and Northern Europe.

I've been thinking of working with one of the oldest Aran sweater brands in the world, to get them to make cuts that would work for non-fishermen, but in the same super tough wools.  Prices would be cheaper than SNS Herning, Inis Meain, etc... probably in the $200-$250 range for the top of the line stuff.  Would you guys be interested?
