    park avenue liquor on madison and 39th is my recommendation for whiskey pick ups.

    though astor has springbank 10 for like 53ish + tax so i'm not complaining if you decide to go with astor

    I'll get a mix of things. Me, personally, I prefer bourbon, but tastes obviously vary. It's gonna be awesome. We have 185 RSVPs already. If you guys have friends who are into clothes, or whose girlfriends want the to dress better, or whatever, refer them, and then enter here: https://gleam.io/focZC/the-proper-kit-the-linjer-wallet-giveaway

    I'll see what I can do. Timing to get that one is trickier than HT.


    I can set something aside from you. I'm also going to be in the city the night before (maybe with @thewho13?) and was thinking of going to Torst. Maybe you can join? I've never been!

    Interesting, I thought HT was the ne plus ultra of hard-to-score VT IPAs. The only time I've had either was a trip to VT where I asked a store to set aside a couple HTs and she offered me some SOS as well.

    HT is actually not that difficult to source in VT. There's basically a drop somewhere pretty much every week.

    Exactly as Nahneun said. You can find some every day of the week and most days of the week for stores where you can buy a whole case. SoS is a little trickier, they only distribute do deliveries a couple days a week to fewer stores.

    Warehouse is great for single malt scotch and vodkas. If you've never tried Bison Grass vodka before, do yourself a favor and spend the best $25 on a bottle of vodka. Warehouse is great for liquors, and decent for wines.

    In my opinion, USQ (Union Square) Wine is the best wine shop in New York. They often have tasting from various wineries, which is a great way to try something before you buy. Their selection is excellent and their staff is super knowledgable.

    Any item requests for us? We'll have some cool MTO / custom projects there : Inis Meain, Vass, Tie Your Tie, Frank Clegg, G. Inglese.:.

    But we can also bring a specific piece from the store that people want to try on/ see in person (like @LA Guy's ts(s) coat for example?)

    Very basic MTM, yes. We'll be lowering the minimum order for MTM shirts from 3 to 2 for the event.

    We'll also have special pricing for all the trunk show MTO projects

    Awesome, linen/cotton shirting would be my request in terms of books to bring. Looking forward to seeing what else you roll out for the event.

    I read that as GMTO, and lol'ed. Essentially, you could just self MTO. But, on second reading, much less funny.

    Oh man, so stoked for that Ts(S) jacket.
