Mill Mercantile webstore is infinitely better than Unionmadegoods in every possible way

They still flake out on deliveries during sale season though, which is annoying.

Suede postmans at Club Monaco look pretty legit:

Another internet business I don't understand and/or don't see the viability of. It's basically an apartment hotel.

A rebranded "cool" Corp apt at a hotel. The company probably raises money at a higher valuation than Marriott's.

Starwood (the Marriott etc.) doesn't need to raise money, they have money like you wouldn't believe.

I travel all the time and knowing the prices in many countries for short term apts. this is both a ripoff and a great way to confirm your asshole status and meet other assholes. I'm sure it will be successful, it speaks to the international self sovereign networking startuper douchebags, Silicon valley jerks off to that stupid shit.

I think I'm finally realizing that SF has best served me over the years mostly by enabling my apparent desire to collect. Thanks to SF, I've got quite the accumulation of:

Historic Naval-inspired clothing
Historic British explorer-inspired clothing
Japanese denim
Scottish knitwear
Alden shoes
Kinfolk magazines
Italian toothpastes
and the latest- upscale desk supplies, including:

Italian paperclips


Japanese brass writing utensils




On the lookout for that perfect stapler...

Are the brass clips and pen case Midori?

I don't believe they will be profitable long term, as they have to compete with both the rental market and apartment hotels. The investors/owners of those kinds of businesses are often times multinational and can easily drive them into the ground.

Speaking of international self-sovereigns:

 

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/may/02/further-future-festival-burning-man-tech-elite-eric-schmidt

 

This sounds like the worst party or the wierdest conference of all time.  Yes, complaing that Burning Man has become overly commercialized is lame, lost its "original meaning", etc,, is lame, but this is much, much, lamer.

 

I wonder if Further future has a lesbian orgy tent.

On the other hand, cool as fuck, and always will be, RIP Price Roger Nelson.

For some reason, I've alway though of @Fuuma as looking like a French Prince.

Most super successful Silicon stuff is silly and can only be explained by our cultural decadence. Economics can rarely explain success in the economic field, cultural shifts can.
