    The Annual Styleforum Gives Holiday Charity Auctions - 2016

    100% of proceeds Benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

    Hi All,

    Of all the many traditions we all have, this is the one of which I am most proud. We are holding auctions of items donated by retailers and designers, 100% of the proceeds to go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (rmhc.org), which helps to house and feed the families of children who must travel for medical treatment. During the holiday season, illness and being away from the comfort of home is especially stressful, and I love that we can help. in a small way. alleviate some of this stress.

    Last year, we raised over $16K over the course of the month. Please bid generously and helps surpass this. There are some terrific items donated already, and we are expecting more donations to roll in as the season rolls in.

    Each auction will take 24 hours, starting as close to 10 a.m. PST as I am able to make it, and ending the same time the next day.

    All auctions will start at 50% of the retail price.

    The auctions will start tomorrow.

    We are a little late this year, but some of the participating vendors this year are:

    *No Man Walks Alone - Eidos jacket (sport coat or hunting/field jacket) + a pair of Vass shoes. Auction winner can choose size and style for both items. We will throw a special bonus gift if bidders post pics of their own picks with their bid.
    *Skoaktiebolaget - MTO shoes from John Lobb - Thanks @Leaves
    *Vanda - because you need more custom, hand folded and rolled ties. What else is going to make that perfect knot around your impromptu necktie headband when you're three sheets to the wind on NYE?
    *The Armoury - a Ring Jacket suit - perfect for business. Perfect for winning "best dressed" at your office party.
    *Equus Leathers - cardholder and bridle leather belt!
    *Proper Cloth - Yes, yes you need some custom shirts.
    Luxire -
    *Luxeswap - Does anyone have enough Drake's ties? The answer is no.
    *Drinkwaters Cambridge - MTM Individualizes shirts! (@rydenfan should double up)
    *Falcon Garments - a MTM Nylon MA-1 flight jacket - look like Cayce in Pattern Recognition!
    *Reeves - three piece bespoke suit at $5000!
    choices of cloth include H Lesser, Dormeuil Amadeus, Loro Piana four seasons and Tasmanian, Scabal Eton and classics, Molloy and sons tweed and many others.
    *Guarded Goods - Horween Dark Cognac or Dark Green Shell Cordovan Three Piece Tabbed Belt, 1x Shell Cordovan Lanyard, Horween Color #8 Shell Cordovan 1 Slot Card Holder.
    *EHaberdasher - *1) Four Benjamin Sartorial shirts on eHaberdasher.com *2. $300 credit towards Sartorial Home cushions on sartorialhome.com
    Standard and Strange - Kapital Denim Wabash Print "San Domingo" jacket.
    *Kent Wang - tweed jacket!
    *Epaulet - Suede MA-1 jacket
    *Viberg - MTO shell cordovan boots.
    Shop the Finest - any pair of Fiori di Lusso shoes available for sale. The winner can choose from any of the 4 styles in 7 colors.

    And more to come. I'm just late this year.



    Cheers,

    Fok.
