We’ll Take the $18,500K Dog Chain

We always love it when Neiman Marcus’ annual Christmas Book comes out. Who isn’t in the market for a $110,000 Confederate Motor Co. motorcycle, or a $60,000 life-sized replica of yourself and loved one crafted out of Legos?

Of course, some people are always immune to problems in the economy, but we bet even the high rollers will do less splurging this year, especially since a lot of them are likely no longer employed on Wall Street.

In this article, a Neiman spokeswoman notes that “we all need a break.” Or do we all need to break the bank?

Anyway, this year Neiman is also releasing a similar catalog with items under $300. Knock yourselves out.

    Just as a Christmas joke gift they should offer real Golden Parachutes–That would really elevate their status amongst the callously insensitive!

    Well, they don’t call ’em NEEDLESS MARKUPS(Neiman Marcus) for nothing!

    Some are missing the point. The Christmas Book produces publicity that can’t be bought at any price. So it may seem a bit out of touch this year, but very few saw the mess on Wall St comming at us.

    Think of the endless cudos that could have been garnered for setting the Christmas Book aside just this once.

    Alternatively, regarding the golden parachutes idea, they could host an invitation only party for their Greenwich, Connecticutt clients for a $50,000 a plate dinner, proceeds to benefit the Suicide Hotline for Hedge Fund Managers and Private Equity partners.
