I can't imagine living in NYC with limited closet space and a big watch collection. The closet would be filled with useless watch boxes. Since I live in Texas, I have 3 closets in my house with basically nothing in them so it's not an issue for me right now.watch box is also stupid heavy these days...
I had someone complain once after I sold him sneakers because the original wrapping papers were not included. It was a collab and had specific wrapping paper that I threw out or misplaced. Also had dudes backing out of deals because I didn’t have original box, even for more basic stuff like MMM gats.Other than a watch box or an eyeglasses case or a decent quality garment bag, does anyone remember the packaging one or two months later?
Mr. Porter actually does have a minimal packaging option now. I was pleased to see that when I last ordered something.I think good packaging works well the first time but is diminishing return afterwards. I remember my first order from Mr.porter and the packaging and faux hand written note was really a step above others at the time. But enough packages later and it just feels wasteful. I'm sure a good amount of ppl will complain about them cutting corners and "the good old days" if they cut back though. A minimal packaging option for those who request it seems best.
Not sure what you're trying to say here, but he doesn't stop when other people think he should. He stops when he things it is right.I've also experienced a stance of "I'll know it when I see it" in creative directions or client be a sign that the creative in charge has a weak vision for a project and design as a process resulting in trouble articulating a way forward. I don't think that's the case for Kanye. Like Steve Jobs was Steve Jobs Kanye is Kanye. What process or behaviours "works" for some superstar isn't going to work for others or most average folk. Nor will they be afforded the same runway or good will by companies or teams without the same $uccess to back them up.

100% trueI don't think people are consuming just objects. They are buying things for their symbolic meaning or associated meanings -- ideas about luxury, quality, authenticity, and even personal identity. Attempts to boil down this market to just objects, delivering on pure value, often result in boring, mediocre DTC brands.
I agree that the packaging is superfluous, and I would rather do without the stuff. But I also recognize that a lot of what we're purchasing is about meaning and not about objects, and packaging plays a small role in this perception.
I always assumed buy this stuff for counterfeiting purposes...there are pretty active markets for branded packaging , as mentioned hermes is indeed pretty easy to buy odd boxes and ribbons on etsy etc . i'd assume that's true of watches too and i'm sure there are other categories .
I honestly kind of like this, it feels more handmade to me if it basically looks like a dude hurriedly shoved it in a flat rate box on his commute home.There is some psychology involved of course. I ordered one MTM suit from Kent Wang years ago and it arrived squished into a Priority Mail box. I'm not sure which was worse though, the fact that my suit arrived in the same of box used books show up in or that it was folded basically to bouillon cube size.
I prefer some sort of professionalism but it doesn't have to be over the top.
Because i actually lived in an was involved in fashion when he came on the scene. i am a student of fashions history as much as i am a practitioner...........Why do you think Hedi has been so influential?
In other news, Virgil's final collection for Louis Vuitton Men's was presented today. The vibrant tailoring and sound track are phenomenal. Lots of quirky headwear, androgynous layering, and even some anime gloves. It certainly feels "High Fashion", but has that youthful spirit and accessibility about it that Virgil was so strong at communicating.
