i think bouronbasted started it. i think the word materialism is in the title. ill try and find it.
for many its just about collecting things of beauty they appreciate, not all that different from art.

a fine thread nonetheless.
The Ethos Of Consumerism And Luxury Consumption

this of course has long been foo.gif 's raison d'etre and cautionary dictum to all who embarked on the road to acquisition at full-throttle...

Stitches,

 

I would fuck your tie collection.

 

Take that as you will.

 

(In all seriousness, I'm not a paraphiliac. Just letting you know my heart's in the right place)

Beautiful collection stitch! Is that just paper in regular drawers, or did you modify them any more than that?

The red one with little medallions, almost look like poker chips, in #2 is particularly catching my eye.

thanks!

yup, just plain wrapping paper that came in a few shipped packages in recent clothing purchases. i cleaned out some dresser drawers that had useless crap in them, and lined them with the paper. viola!

if you mean the red one next to an identical orange one, they are both e. marinella.

ed - which 18 would you keep? 12 are on the way to luxeswap in the next week or so.

Very nice. I think I'll follow suit once I move to a place with actual extra dresser space. happy.gif

And the new Marinellas are nice, but I was referring to the one a few more to the right, bigger medallions/whatever. Between the grey/silver and brown ones.

I was mistaken, only 21 I would sell (don't take this too literal, its just a difference in taste and if you like any I don't like, don't get rid of it just because)



first pic, left to right = 1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,11
second pic = 1,10,11,16
third pic = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

As far as what you should sell:

I would sex the entire first picture.

 

The second picture I'd probably take a pass on.

The third picture, the right half I'd hit sober, but for the whole package, I'd need a few drinks.

thanks ed

first pic - 1 and 9 are already on the way out. 2,4,5,8 i like. 6,7 im on the fence about. 11 was a gift.

second pic - 10,11,16 are already on the way out. 1 - on the fence.

third pic - 1,3, 10 are already on the way out. 2,5,6 i like. 4 was a gift. 7 is a great shabbos tie. 8 and 9 were my wedding and engagement ties.

the ones we differ on i would chalk up to different tastes, and hell, i may end up selling them too. besides the gifts, and the ones that hold sentimental value. those i keep.

Let's just say this horrible thing happened. Would you sell the ones that I did have sex with (as they might be more tasteful) or the ones that didn't even make the cut and no suffer from self esteem issues.

You'd keep one, right? Like as a momento?

mostly i just dont wear some of them anymore. their day has passed i guess. time for a new loving home.

not sure how to answer the rest of your questions, lol.
