I like the tones and the linen blends look nice and gauzy, plus I'm a sucker for band collar long shirts.

Super dope, I've had my eye on that for a while. Hope it works for you, make sure you post a fitpic! fing02[1].gif

She probably looked around the office and saw how many other people were the same? I don't know anything about the company beyond what I posted. I just thought it was timely considering our recent discussions.

This is a dumb service for Silicon valley people who say things like "time is money" and don't have an once of aesthetic sense but were told by the internet that it is important to dress well so they wanna buy into that. They're doing the same thing with food and wine, having eaten at three starred Michelin restaurants but not being able to know what is good food without an online guide. I'm preparing an IPO so we buy the company, get the location of these assholes and work with the DoD to send drones to take them out. They were already dead without ever being born so...

If no one is there to tell me what I'm supposed to like, how am I supposed to know what I'm supposed to like? puzzled.gif

What if that someone is "yelp", an interior desecrator and some stylist who "knows the dress codes of every company in the valley"? Are you cool yet?

Freudian slip? laugh.gif

Maybe it's the person you hire after you've had a brutalist architect design your home?

On the "time is money" bent: pretty common for people to use TaskRabbit to hire people to wait in line for them at restaurants. This is not confined to the bay area.

People also reportedly hire others to wait in line for them at popular sample sales in NYC.

That Boon Gable concept is about one of the worst I have heard so far. The tip off for me occurred when the article's author did not wait more than a few sentences to use the dreaded "curated".

That Boon Gable service is for obviously drones who need someone to tell them what to like in life.

::types this with closet full of 5-zips, GATs, ToJs, BBJ shop coats, CPs, side-zip boots, APC jeans, 520 Fresco sport coats, grenadines, OCBDs with the perfect collar roll, Ambrosi pants, Neapolitan jackets with open quarters, Steed suits, and EG Dovers::

^ dronewear. That can be the styleforum subtitle.

A startup called Boon + Gable aims to solve both those problems with a service that offers a personal stylist who comes to your home with a curated selection of clothes for you to try, then buy on the spot if you like them

Oh where have I heard of this concept before......
