The New, Official, 10th year anniversary - Page 5

post #61 of 951

John from Jack/Knife Outfitters here. Just wanted to take the time and say that all of us at Jack/Knife are excited for the event in May!

 

We will be set up at the event to showcase examples of our bespoke jeans, barn coats, shirts, and more. We will be also be taking measurements throughout the days of the events for all who are interested.

 

To any that don't know, Jack/Knife is an outfitters founded by myself and my buddy Nick. We hand-make custom clothing in the Old Garment District of San Francisco, specializing in selvedge denim jeans. We pride ourselves on constructing garments "they way they used to."

The party will be really fun, but I'm also looking forward to Friday's screening of O'Mast and the Saturday showcase. Fok is putting together a lookbook with a lot of great stuff from forum affiliates. He wrangled a few of us into a photoshoot last week. You can have a good laugh at me, emptym and the out-of-retirement saucemaster modeling stuff. Pictures courtesy pocketsquareguy who was also a model. iammatt said he was "busy" that day.
Anyway, it'll be a fun weekend. You all should put it on your calendar and make your travel plans... now.

There are a lot of Friday night events. A showing of O'Mast, dinner, drinks. Gentlemenly stuff. You just won't be able to shop and flirt on Saturday.

These guys are really dedicated to their craft and to their customer. I've been asking for all sorts of non-standard stuff, and John and Nick are all... "hmmm.... I think that we can make that happen."

very kind of you. shabbos starts sundown on friday though.

also, even though i could technically stay in the hotel, pray on my own, and walk around looking sharp meeting people without transgressing shabbos, it would not be in the spirit of the day for me.

i will be there in mind if not in body (whatever the hell that means). i look forward to all the posts and pics after zero hour.

I'm a Catholic. We are all about doing things that are "technically" okay. If they are convenient. Otherwise, we just ignore the rules. What is this "spirit of the day" thing? It's a foreign concept to me.

It appears then you might be able to make the O'Mast screening, catch the party+after party on Saturday night and Sunday brunch.

i would not be able to catch fridays activities. need time to get ready for shabbos, and make it to to a shul and orthodox neighborhood. but, i guess i could catch saturday night and sundays activities.

i will think on it. interesting proposition. thanks.

The screening starts at 6:30, and I believe that it is 1 hour long. You will have exactly 15 minutes to down your drink and make it to your room. Sounds doable. Party starts at 7 and goes until the police come, or the hotel makes us stop. So... 2? I think that's closing time in California still. I'll even save you a sandwich or something. I actually have no idea what is kosher, and whats is not, tbh, so some other member of the tribe would have to show me the way. On Saturday, if you can't buy stuff, can you "prebuy" stuff? Someone tell me how this works.
