    For me personally the Eames lounge is actually one of the few MCM chairs worth sitting in, which isn't the case for most other "design classics".

    The discussion isn't about the original design, which most can agree on is great, though overrun, but the half ass effort designers put into doing furniture collabs, if they put half the time they put into doing a Viberg collab, we would have something.

    I know a bunch of architects who do furniture, so it wouldn't surprise me.

    When one thinks of 3sixteen, denim comes to mind. Not leather. Could've upholstered the thing in raw denim. You would get sick fades while getting dye all over your clothes. The only solution would be to wear 3sixteen denim.

    Obviously I don't know this for sure, but I would imagine Herman Miller presents brands with a fairly small list of things they can change for a collaboration - protecting the brand's image and whatnot.

    I just bought a hackneyed designer collab myself, but I still thought it was charming and we needed a desk lamp anyway. I'm part of the problem since they can keep getting away with this stuff haha

    McDonald's McCafe "Cappucino" - 3.25
    Blue Bottle Cappucino - 3.75

    Am I supposed to buy three three-thousand-dollar leather jackets? That seems ridiculous

    Maybe it's just me, but I would much prefer an antique Morris chair to any mid-century thing: Cue to @lefty for some rant about manliness, please?

    It just dawned on me that "selvege," from a practical standpoint, probably doesn't confer any promise of better quality than denim cut from a larger bolt.

    The ONLY thing that would, objectively, make selvedge denim more expensive is that you don't get as good a yield from the cloth because it has to be cut a certain way.. but denim can be quite inexpensive, and only the denim with all the bells and whistles approaches the costs of say, haflway decent suiting fabric.

    I'm guessing the forum had a huge hardon for selvedge in the early 2000s. That would have been fun to witness.

    Mid 2000s, but yes. I mean, Styleforum is affected by trends just like any other community that is devoted to a specific topic.

    There's so many good options in SF (and the rest of the bay area).

    And yes, you gotta tip for EVERYTHING out here.
