I'd almost say nothing was essential. Stay agile and mobile. Definitely not furniture.

Spend your money on liquor and women. When you are young, you will get more mileage out of that than anything else. If you are talking serious money - buy a nice vintage luxury car.

Good eye, yes mostly. I tossed in Saratoga but they might have mentioned it during the competition to name the most bottled waters.

I could add A.Testoni crocodile loafers also

* cast iron skillet * ikea poang chair and ottoman * decent queen-size mattress * a car you're not attached to which is easy to get rid of (don't fall for the 20-something trap of letting a cool car suck up half your income) * multiple savings and/or checking accounts with ATM access, always have at least $5K in cash available

A passport. A small, high-quality camera. A cheap car if you have to have a car. A job you can live with but also quit. A bicycle. One good pair of black leather shoes. One dark suit. Health insurance.
