    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I wanted to show you guys a sneak peek at a collection we'll be launching exclusively at the event, a series of pocket squares using a classic Japanese motif called "segaiha", which is commonly used to represent waves in the ocean, and likely a pattern you've seen before.

    Within it, we've worked into the pattern a koi fish, which can carry a variety of symbolic meanings including success, prosperity and good fortune. Although originally from China, the selective breeding of Koi fish for their distinctive colorings and patterns is generally considered a result of Japanese tradition.

    Hope you enjoy and please share your thoughts, these will only be for you during the show; we'll likely launch them officially on our site a few weeks after.

    I hope everyone will have a great trunk show! I wish we could have been there but unfortunately our time schedule could not allow for it, but hopefully next year!

    Hi all,

    My name is Chris Tuazon, and I'm a correspondent for Art & Hustle. I'm writing a few pieces to help introduce the brands attending The Proper Kit.

    Up first is Atlanta, Georgia's Res Ipsa, a men's accessories and footwear maker. Please get to know the story of two lawyers and a runaway barrel of flour.

    Gentlemen,
    We are very excited to announce that we will be participating in The Proper Kit Trunk Show on November 7th at Gary's Loft on West 36th Street.

    We will be relocating our ready to wear and bespoke offerings from our shop on Greenwich Street for the day and have all services available with a full range of swatches, bolts and accessories to make the trip as good as a visit to the shop!

    If you are not familiar with what we do, we welcome you to visit our website: http://millersoath.com

    In a nutshell….we are a bespoke tailor and ready to wear atelier whose inspiration comes from our great grandfathers store in South Dakota at the turn of the century. We love fabric and construction; tweeds, worsteds, flannels we love them all and work with only the best mills. We look forward to seeing you, discussing our heritage, our garments and maybe even have you try on a jacket or two.

    To really get an idea of what we are about please follow us on instagram:

    This is going to be a special event. Like the Styleforum 10X in San Francisco where I had the chance to meet great people from around the world who all shared an appreciation for quality menswear and style. I'm really looking forward to this. Hope you can swing it and join us.

    Hi all,
    My name is Chris Tuazon, and I'm a correspondent for Art & Hustle. I'm writing a few pieces to help introduce the brands attending The Proper Kit.

    Up next is Carmina Shoemaker of Majorca, Spain. It seems like most here already know of the brand and are fans; all the more reason to attend the event. Nevertheless, it was great to learn about quite the the Albaladejo Pujadas tradition of shoemaking.

    Impressed that the number of vendors is now 22.

    I've been following the Res Ipsa Instagram and their vintage Kilim rug loafers for sometime and looking forward to seeing them in person.
