    Ten years ago, Styleforum was born.

    On the weekend of May 5, there will be party in San Francisco. A movable circus, so to speak.

    The official itinerary splash page and itinerary is
    here

    There will be festivities and activities the entire weekend, with a showing of O'Mast co-sponsored by The Armoury on the 4th, a vendor Showcase (a mashup between a pop-up shop and a trunk show) on the afternoon of the 5th, and a party in the evening. Of course, there will be drinks throughout the day, culmulating in food and drinks on the evening of the 5th.

    The itinerary is below.

    Schedule for the weekend of the Styleforum 10th Anniversary Party

    Friday May 4

    O'Mast 6:30-7:30 PM - Showing of O'Mast co-sponsored by The Armoury and W San Francisco, at the Industry Room of the W San Francisco.

    Meetup and Dinner 7:30PM whenever. In the spirit of San Francisco Styleforum Meetups, we will meet for dinner at the Credo, followed by drinks at the Wingtip.

    Saturday May 5
    A swim anyone? You'll find me either going for a run (if my knee is good) or in the gym doing lots of explosive exercises.

    I'll be there, this was my first posted picture, I feel an obligation to show up like this (at least for some of it), even though I've evolved.

    We're going to try to not fuck up this thread too much. There is another thread for jokes, etc... But we want people to be able to find the logistical information, quickly, easily, etc... Thanks.

    Cheers.

    Blame it on the GBP. If it traded like the Baht, we may have considered it. Seriously though, San Francisco was chosen because we have a lot of boots on the ground there, and our partners/developers are there.

    For all you out-of-towners who are on the fence, you should come. And even if you aren't on the fence, you should come. Grab your significant other or go stag. (there's gonna be ladies, ask Fok). Flights are really not that bad. Check it out, New Yorkers... Virgin is only 260 round trip. That's not even a full leg on a pair of Ambrosi pents.

    The party will be really fun, but I'm also looking forward to Friday's screening of O'Mast and the Saturday showcase. Fok is putting together a lookbook with a lot of great stuff from forum affiliates. He wrangled a few of us into a photoshoot last week. You can have a good laugh at me, emptym and the out-of-retirement saucemaster modeling stuff. Pictures courtesy pocketsquareguy who was also a model. iammatt said he was "busy" that day.

    Anyway, it'll be a fun weekend. You all should put it on your calendar and make your travel plans... now.
