Our second Chicago Sartorial Meet-up is scheduled for Friday, October 15, 2010, at Hub 51 at 51 West Hubbard Street in Chicago’s River North neighborhood (http://www.hub51chicago.com). The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.


Joining the group will be three of England’s most prominent firms in gentlemen's clothing and footwear:

  • Alfred Sargent & Sons of Northampton, England (http://www.alfredsargent.co.uk), the renowned maker of fine men’s shoes and boots will be represented by proprietor Andrew Sargent, the scion of the firm’s namesake, and by Chay Cooper, its director of operations. At the event, the firm will unveil its new “Premier Exclusives” line for the first time in the United States.


  • Harvie & Hudson of Jermyn Street, London (http://www.harvieandhudson.com), one of the world’s leading shirtmakers, will send co-proprietors Richard Harvie and Andrew Hudson, who will discuss their range of dress shirts (including bespoke shirts).


  • Hemingway Tailors of Leeds, England (http://www.hemingwaytailors.co.uk), will be represented by their proprietor and master tailor, Toby Luper, who will explain his firm’s manufacture of classic English-style bespoke suits and sport coats.

This is the second annual event organized by the Chicago collaboration of “ld111134”/Lou, “Francisco d’Anconia”/Josh and “Burton”/Gerard.

The cost will be $112 per person, which will cover hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer. If you plan on attending, please contact “Burton”/Gerard for payment arrangements at your earliest convenience because we want to lock-in our headcount as soon as possible.

Please contact any of us by PM if you have any questions.

Gentlemen, we have lowered the price of our event to $76/person (complimentary beer and wine will be available for two hours rather than three hours, in line with last year's event).

Please contact "ld111134"/Lou, "Francisco d'Anconia"/Josh and "Burton"/Gerard if you have any questions, and coordinate with "Burton" in regards to payment.

Guys, just wanted to let you know we have had a slight time change. 5:00 p.m. is now the start versus 5:30.

Here are a few images from the AS line they will be debuting at our event.





Also remember that shirt maker Harvie Hudson will be with us:



and bespoke suit maker Hemingway



It should be a fun and informative time.

Unfortunately, we have canceled the Sartorial Meet-up scheduled for October 15th. I look forward to meeting up with you otherwise.
