The Fourth Annual Collection of Sartorial Excellence will take place at New York City's Regency Hotel on Friday, February 29th and Saturday, March 1st. Sartorial Excellence is open by invitation only to members of Style Forum, AskAndyAboutClothes, the clients of the artisans & exhibitors and their guests. Invitations, which are good for the invitee and up to three guests, can be obtained at SartorialExcellence.net.
A Collection of Sartorial Excellence is a small, private exposition of some of the finest men's and women's clothing, furnishings, and accessories available. Over the years, Sartorial Excellence has become the focal point and annual gathering of top-quality clothing afficionados, industry insiders, a number of the artisans whose creations are on display ... as well as many friends who first met at one of the previous annual Collections.
Sartorial Excellence began as an in-person supplement to the clothing fora at which artisans and experts could augment the ongoing online discussions with hands-on demonstrations. In an effort to enhance the educational nature of the event, the 2008 edition will also feature new seminar-style intensives in reponse to many frequently discussed topics. A complete schedule of seminar times and days will be published at Sartorial Excellence.net on Monday, February 25th as will the complete exhibitor list.
