products

windbreakers, parkas, coats, and other stuff made out of parachute material or whatever Issey Miyake's group thinks is cool for the streets these days. Plus cardboard furniture. Lots of bright orange. Lots of zippers. Did I mention zippers? Flowery camo blanket clothes. Techno, d'n'b records. check the used bins.

clientele

kidz in the record bins. lafayetters in the clothing sections. only faux, ironic homeless people.

service

pretty decent. obviously its not too painful to be hip these days.

interior

nice and sleek. kinda techny. nice dj-booth/cash register. ursula 1000 recorded his mix cd on these very decks!

ambience

the idea behind final home: the designer went to nyc one year and was so provked by the homeless that he designed utilitarian clothing that could help the homeless survive on the streets. then he charged $400 for his creations. the store in nyc is a very cool "lifestyle" store featuring zippered-up final home clothing, a small techno-oriented record store/listening area, and some cardboard furniture to sit on. if you have $450 to blow on a parka, this is the store for your lifestyle.[****UPDATE 02.2002 - STORE TERMINATION] stock still available from [U]barneys nyc[/U][/URL] and
