Chicago Meet up - TODAY!

A final reminder. I’ll be there tonight along with a host of other fine folks. Join us!

Shout out to ordinaryglory for putting this together:

German Beer and Christmas Sweaters…

You couldn’t beat that kind of good time with a stick, especially on the Monday before Christmas.

With that said:

1) Come to the Chicago Christmas Holiday Meet Up, and if you’re not having a good time, have a beer and westfälisches schinkenbrot on me.  

2) Tommy (suitsandboots), Kiyoshi (thesilentist), Eric (theodinspire), Meredith (canarycoal), Ernest (smileifyourewinning) and MANY others will be in full effect for the festivities.

No need to RSVP this time. If you can make it, great. You can check in here, if you wish to.

Where: Brauhaus. 4732 North Lincoln Avenue

When: Monday, December 19th at 7:30pm

As for the Christmas sweaters, go all out!

If you’re in Chicago, then this should be tremendous fun.

Also, I should sidenote that Nat (natw), Noah (noahzagor) Ian (blazerbeams) and The Midwest Style (themidwestyle) have stated they’ll be in attendance.

As always, this meetup is open to any and all — no Tumblr, no #menswear enthusiasm necessary.

Chicago Meet Up - June 23rd

Two things I can promise:

1) If you come to the meet up, you’ll have a great time. Ask everyone who showed up to the last one in April hosted by Jesse of PTO. A definite good time.

2) I don’t care how many well dressed ladies and gents happen to show up, I will see to it that we look the exact antithesis as the group pictured above.

With that said, here are the specifics:

Where: SmallBar on Division. 2049 W Division St.

When: Thursday, June 23rd at 7pm.

Why: Why not? Tommy (suitsandboots), Kiyoshi (thesilentist), Eric (theodinspire), and few others may show up.

Come meet up with some new faces, familiar faces, and the like.

Cheers,

-Sam

Another reminder for this because it’s going down this week. I think it’s always good to get out and meet some people from the Internet IRL. Stuff can get serious sometimes and gatherings like this are a great opportunity to keep things light and honest (we’re all just regular people who happen to have a  strange obsession).

People I know of who should be there:

My name tag for the event:

Hey folks, just another quick reminder about tomorrow’s meetup. I’ll be there! So will other great folks! And there will be alcohol!

I plan to show up. Honestly. Although some rumors are brewing that the General Assembly will need a special session to deal with some lingering budget issues, I’m hoping it’ll be hammered out before this meetup.

Regardless, please do come if you’re in the Windy City!
