    Jeffrey Ying, AKA "Label King" on Styleforum, will be returning to San Francisco in September so the timing is ideal for another Bay Area Meetup.

    The folks at Proper Suit http://propersuit.com/ have offered to host Styleforum members for cocktails and appetizers at their pop-up location Firehouse 8 in Russian Hill . We will meet at Proper Suit/Firehouse 8 from 6-8pm and then head out to a nearby no-host dinner at Leopold's.


    Date: Thursday September 12th


    Time: 6-8pm for hosted cocktails, followed by a no-host dinner at Leopolds SF


    Location: Proper Suit at Firehouse 8, 1648 Pacific Ave San Francisco

    Dinner at Leopolds
    2400 Polk Street (about 4 blocks away)



    I've been to Firehouse 8 for an event and enjoyed the location. It is a historic Russian Hill Firehouse and a very nice setting. http://www.yelp.com/biz/firehouse-8-san-francisco

    Proper Suit will have their line of custom suits and shirts on display and, of course, will be available to answer any questions about their apparel and services

    Everyone is invited and we especially encourage new Styleforum members to come out and join us. It is always fun to meet in real life.

    If you are planning on attending, please confirm in this thread. It helps to organize when we have a good headcount.

    See you all next month!

    Max Andreae for sure and possibly one other. Max does all the measuring of West Coast customers for Proper Suit. He visits SF 2x a month and has indicated that the frequency of visits will be increasing due to high demand.

    Sounds like another great evening Gus! I'm trying to finalize my travel schedule for that week, but I'll be there if I'm in town.

    I've never been to a meetup, but I'll be in SF during this time period. Silly question, but do any spouses/girlfriends attend or is it normally men-only?

    Glad to hear that you can join us. These events are especially enjoyable when we have a chance to meet Styleforum members visiting from overseas.

    Spouses/girlfriends, friends and SO's are always welcome and have been attending most of the events this year with greater frequency. Firehouse 8 is an enjoyable and comfortable event setting.

    I'll be there.
    Jeffrey's insights on the new government in the PRC
    will be invaluable.

    I just got an email that one of the owners either McGregor or Richard will be attending the Styleforum event along with Max.

    ^ Gioia Pizzeria. I haven't actually been to the new-ish SF location, but I"m a loyal East Bay customer. I realize that pizza is a controversial topic, but for anyone who likes East Coast-style pie and locally sourced, artisanal yadda yadda ingredients, this is your place.
