How To Spend It.

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
The Financial Times has a nice section called How To Spend It in which assorted tastemakers and Arbiter Elegantiaes write blogs about the kind of life that Internet Gentlemen aspire to. IGent favorites such as Nick Foulkes appear periodically. Unfortunately, it is one of those appalling flash sites. www.howtospendit.com/

These magazines are very useful at cutting out the middle-man. There are groupies (art advisers, car advisers, property advisers, designers, Oxfam resellers) hanging around the ultra-rich looking for ways to spend their clients' money. Sometimes these hangers-on resort to faux-bigtimer threads in which they ask for advice e.g. how to spend min. $100 000 on a gift?

The Times has a similar publication, now hidden behind a paywall. A couple of months ago they had an issue focussing on the Italian High Life, with an article of Italian men's clothing style, mentions of Rubinacci et al. I hadn't realised this Italy-focussed motorcycle place wasn't too far from me http://www.madeinitalymotorcycles.com/.

They kept these publications going through the worst of the financial meltdown a couple of years ago - really tacky.

I don't see why not--the newly created wealth in Russia and China love this kind of stuff.

The Franklin Library should amend and reprint their Great Books series, and provide gilded, leather bound editions of Das Kapital and the Communist Manifesto to the eager, LVMH-clad, box-chardonnay swilling bourgeoisie of Eurasia.

I know how to spend it. Let's have a useful thread telling us how to make more.
And please no links to that tall guy with the big teeth telling us how to release the giant within.

Kindles are awesome. They are amazing for traveling! I just wish they had a backlight. Thats why you get the ipad



I must say though, I kinda miss the material forms of books and putting them on my shelf after I've read them.
