He asked where I found it and seemed genuinely perplexed when I told him "the skateboard store".
I feel like it must be time to head over to MC and start learning to dress in plaid suits or something.post #98449 of 1090538/5/14 at 3:51amIs it weird that one of the major factors for how much I wanna drop on something is how friendly the designer/store staff is?
I'm much more likely to buy at retail brands like Robert Geller, Peir Wu, and Abasi + Rosborough where the designers seem like genuine, humble people or Rick Owens where the store staff always goes above and beyond than from a brand like Paul Harnden, who, while I'm sure is just a cool dude who wants his privacy respected, is nonetheless a bit standoffish.
I love that the internet gives us new ways of communicating about (and even with!) the designers and brands that we like and I hope it rewards designers that engage the community in positive ways, as I'm sure it's doing for retail shops that affiliate with this and other forums.post #98450 of 1090538/5/14 at 5:23ampost #98451 of 1090538/5/14 at 6:29amQuote:Quote:Originally Posted by snowmanxl
You probably didn't miss much..
I roomed with a guy who walked for Dior and another that walked for RO last year. I was surprised to find that a company as big as Dior was horrible with paying their models. Maybe it's because they are a big company and can lawyer up and find loopholes.
From what I recall they were stalling on the payments and if he quit to sign with another label (Dior had exclusivity) then the payment would be void. ..something like that
Yeah, from what I remember of my old contract, the agency/client decided the payment terms, the agency gets paid, and then x amount of time later they cut you a check after taking their fee.post #98452 of 1090538/5/14 at 7:41ampost #98453 of 1090538/5/14 at 7:44ampost #98454 of 1090538/5/14 at 7:52ampost #98455 of 1090538/5/14 at 8:46ampost #98456 of 1090538/5/14 at 8:49ampost #98457 of 1090538/5/14 at 9:07ampost #98458 of 1090538/5/14 at 10:42amQuote:
He is probably with an agency, walking runway shows pays a few hundred euros (varies) and the agency takes a cut. I know some nice kid who does like 14 shows a season and it's not like he has money considering he has to go to castings and do all kinds of bullshit for like 4000 euros a season. Being on a cover doesn't pay either, the only avenue to $$$$ are campaigns. Girls tend to get more money.
Most models are a little bit older than people think, although some girls will indeed be quite young.post #98459 of 1090538/5/14 at 10:55amQuote:Originally Posted by noob

What deck is it that he thought it's vintage? Coolest shop I know is in San Diego and the whole ceiling is covered in actual vintage decks from the late 70's and all through the 80's.post #98460 of 1090538/5/14 at 11:00amQuote:Originally Posted by toothsomesound
nope, the universal model size is 5'11 - 6'1 ~165 lbs size 38-40/medium chest, 32 waist. the vast majority of online retailers use dudes in this range. some of the more fashion oriented sites like ssense and ln-cc will cast actual runway models who are generally skinnier, sometimes have slightly smaller chests and sometimes edge into the 6'2, 6'3 range but very few are taller than that. occasionally stores like opening ceremony or gentry will use their own employees as models who are maybe more "average" but that's kind of a meaningless word.
When I did it, I was 6', 31, 165. I'd lose bookings to guys who were either 6'+, 32 - 34, and closer to 180 or 6'+, 30 - 32, and closer to 155, depending on the client.
