I’m surprised that no one wore this to the Golden Globes:
I was at a large charity event over the weekend that presented some very interesting takes on formal wear. I would say about twenty percent got it right or mostly right. Certainly fewer rental tuxes then I have seen in years past and more shawl collars and double breasted than one might expect. Mind you the Governor was setting the tone with his single breasted notch tuxedo paired with a burgundy paisley bow tie, belt, and Ferragamo bit loafers (no waist covering). It was...
Well now that brings a good idea, with so many “key” people available we should have seminars such as: “CVS cloth tape: Its application and proper usage.”Seriously though, let us see if you gentlemen can follow my argument without putting too many words in my mouth.I suggested that the 21st-24th would be a good time for a meet-up in New York because “so many” of our members will be in town for the trade shows happening throughout the city. Mr. Booth disagreed with my...
Ok….Then who do you consider to be in the industry? What is your definition? Because 2-3 people on that list will be traveling to New York specifically to go to that trade shows and another 2-3 people would go if NYC was closer to them and are in Italy at Pitti right now. Or we can all get together between 21st and the 24th, see who shows up and have the conversation in person. (Sort of the point of my suggestion in the first place.)

I think so. Definitely one way or the other, if they did not start out in the business, they got in the business since or maybe even because of joining Styleforum. Take some of our most trusted and prolific members: Despos (Bespoke Tailor), Jefferyd (in tailoring on the wholesale side), Will (Blogger and retailer), yfyf (retail), edmorel (manufacturing and retail), gshen (manufacturing and retail), Phat Guido (Blogger) even Mr. Poker if you count eBay, and many many more...
Though probably not all targets (or bloggers for that matter); I suspect your good friend Mr. Sartoria is unlikely to make an appearance. One only gets busier once one “retires”?
Good point. What would happen to the world if all the menswear bloggers were taken at once…
Maybe trying to plan a meet-up while many of the key people are in Florence is not the best idea, but let’s give it a shot anyway. Since so many Styleforum members are in the industry and are going to be in New York around the 21st-24th of this month, why don’t we all get together and have a drink or dinner or something. If the recent GQ article on menswear blogging is anything to go by; Styleforum is the great connector in the men’s clothing world, bringing together...
Well if you had sold the Calder instead of donating it you could have financed a mobile backed, mobile party…I have been championing this kind of idea for a while now: If the meet-ups happened more regularly (say, biannually or quarterly), merchants could plan for trunk shows and the like and members could better plan travel arrangements.Since the New Yorkers are missing out in March, how about a mass meet-up around January 21st-24th while everyone is in town for market?
