Herman Miller Aeron Chair Shreds Pants?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

A co-worker mentioned that he won't use our office Aeron chairs in his office because they destroyed several pairs of his dress pants. I was skeptical but the google seems to agree. 

 

Anyone ever had any first hand experience with this?

I hope it isn't true; I'm sitting in one right now.

Same here!

 

Forum search shows one thread on it back in '09 with someone having the same problem, but it didn't get much traction.

Apparently everyone in the thread has been sitting in one, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's not the case. It just means we haven't encountered it yet. smile.gif

Since my pants get worn evenly throughout the weeks/months, I suspect if there is an issue it would manifest itself very slowly, then all at once.

Works for me on three devices.

I have been using Aeron's (since the firms I have worked for buy them) since 1999.  And, yes, if you customarily have your wallet in your back pants pocket the Aeron mesh will eventually put a hole in your pants.  I have had this happen to 4 pairs over the years - most annoying (especially when it happened to two suit pants).  Still forget occasionally and just today I realized a pair of linen pants I liked have had a whole worn into them because I keep forgetting to take the wallet out.

I've been using an Aeron at work for about 10 years now and I love it, so much so that I bought one for my office at home. That being said, about a year ago, I started a job that required me to wear suits to work, as opposed to khakis and jeans. In preparation, I bought some new BB 1818s, as well as a pre-owned Zegna and a Brioni on the 'Bay. I wear each suit once per week on average. After one year, the seat of each pair of trousers is shiny like I've never seen in 25 years of wearing suits. Once I figured out the connection, I now drap a towel over the seat.
