    ^ I've been using it, it's pretty convenient. the 5$ pickup fee is well worth it when you factor in packing supplies and mind-blowingly awful post office experiences.

    Pretty much what i've been doing for years. I do have email notifications for a a few threads but thats about it. And even the few threads i subscribe too take up some space win the mailbox


    He probably doesn't sell a lot and doesn't realize he should update or close his listing when he sells to a consignment shop... thats messed up, you can possibly give him bad feedback right?

    So, every once in a while, when I'm talking to a designer, we'll get at something that's much more resonant than the "what inspires you" or "who is your customer" fallback questions (guilty). This bit from the Robert Geller interview (above) is a maybe the best example:

    --

    To go back to location and its importance, you’ve always struck me as a quintessentially New York designer. Coming from Germany, and then moving to Providence to go to school at RISD, what was it about New York that captured your imagination?

    It’s funny, because I didn’t plan to stay in New York when I went there. I went there because I had an opportunity to work for Marc Jacobs, and New York always seemed too overbearing to me. Too loud, too rough, and then I landed here, and it was about a week, two weeks after I actually moved here, that September 11th happened. I lived like five blocks away from Ground Zero - I was one of the people running away from the falling buildings. So that was my welcome to New York moment - fucking nuts. And I came back and I fell in love with it. You fall in love with your favorite restaurants, your favorite little places and coffee [shops] where you can walk on the weekend - and that came together. And I think that sense of, “you need to protect yourself,” I think it never went away. I think that’s a lot of what I put into the collection in terms of that feeling of streetwear - and all that layering, you want to layer yourself to protect yourself, you want a leather jacket and then a scarf.

    --

    Just...crazy.

    Sorry to be the one to disappoint you, but they don't deliver your package in an actual ship that shoots lasers. The times I've had something delivered via Lasership, it's been a couple of guys in a car or van.

    Not that crazy. You know me. I've always dressed like that. Layers, and tough, street ready layers. It's armor.

    I've always wanted a bottle green felted wool long coat and a herringbone tweed zip up jacket for years. I searched long and hard for years but with no luck. Even my fave designer, Marc Jacobs never made them or something similar. I even thought of making them myself but without the right fabrics never came to fruition. Then low and behold, my dreams came to reality thanks to The Real Real I now own both of my grail pieces of men's clothing.

    Not the clothes, the experience. I also like layers, and that is why. Cocoons are very comforting. Weren't we calling CCP clothes slaughterhouse jackets just a few days ago?

    ripe for psychoanalysis

    ccp -> thanatos / Geller -> trauma theory

    That particular experience is extremely resonant, but the need for armor is pretty common. A coccoon has a completely different symbolic meaning.

    Yeah I read some reviews online about them. Someone said they don't ship packages dressed in a company uniform. So how exactly do they operate? since I don't get home till about 10:30PM every night, do they leave a note for redelivery? leave my package there? at the post office?

    I think they leave a note. You can probably sign it and leave it on your door to authorize them to drop it off next time they come around.

    Yeah man it sucks because I was about to pay but then he disappeared. No negative feedback on grailed. Guess my money will be saved for that Vanson SF Rider in January. Might be tempted by all these sales happening right now though too.

    2 pair of pants have had the seams or fabric around the seat ripped in less than a month. One pair was fixed but broke again.

    I now own a total of 1 pair of pants.
