Thanks for reminding me. Let's get this rolling! I've never done anything like this before, so I'm thinking...
1) We compile a list of everyone who wants to participate. Let's try to do that in the next three days. On Monday, we'll assign out the secret santa matches and communicate it to everyone via PM
2) To participate, you'll commit to buying a local item, valued around $25 or so. It should represent where you live, and ideally come from a small shop. It does not have to be menswear related in any way. Something cool, with the money going to a small local business.
3) You'll ship the item out to your Secret Santa by the middle-end of next week so that they receive it in time for Christmas!
Sound good? So to participate, how about sending us an email at contact[at]epauletnewyork.com with "Secret Santa" in the title. Please state your Styleforum user name, your full real name, your email, and your shipping address. I'll post a running roster every day of who has signed up. Let's say that Sunday is the deadline to join. And if you know that you're going to join, then please start thinking about the gift or pick it up ASAP. We'll issue everyone's match on Monday, and the faster that you can ship out the gift, the better.
ONE NOTE: Most guys participating will be from the States, but we've got a lot of dudes in Canada, Europe, and Asia too. I think that it would be cool to match up some cross-border Santas, but that would result in a higher shipping cost for the participants. If you absolutely do not want to ship anything out of your home region then please let me know in your email and we'll do our best to keep things in your area.
