Good things are happening in NYC over the next week. If any of them interest you, I recommend you make the effort to attend.
Starting Thursday Meermin (review here) is having its first ever US trunk show. They will be showing through Saturday (Nov 14-16), 10am-6pm daily at 481 Broadway, 4th flr. I believe that Pepe will have some stuff on hand that will be exclusive to this trunk show, but I could be wrong. At the least, he will have a solid spread of shoes to show, and hopefully swatches and samples for the MTO Meermin does. For those of you that care, I will be there Friday around lunch time and maybe on Saturday at some point and would be glad to help any of you choose some shoes.
Also this weekend (Nov 16 & 17) is the Style Forum NYC Trunk Show which will feature Yellow Hook Neckties, No Man Walks Alone, Kent Wang, The Hanger Project, Franco Ercole and JP Marcellino. The show is at the Third Streaming Gallery on at 2nd flr at 10 Green St. The show will run 12pm-7pm both days. I will say that I am particularly excited to see what Kent Wang and YHN bring. Word on the street is that there will be booze, perhaps it will be free? The clothes will certainly be by cash or credit, however. I plan to stop by Saturday afternoon.
If, following the weekend, you are still in a sound financial position (I am almost sure I will not be), Thursday (Nov. 21st) will be a day to remember. During the day Justin Fitzpatrick will bring his collection (above and below photos – more photos here) to show at the infallible Leffot. It will be Justin’s first trunk show in NYC. Your time (and money) would not be wasted by stopping by. To my eyes, he is churning out some of the best looking dress shoes out there. I believe I will be able to make the trip up, I do not know what time I will stop by though, if you are interested in meeting up, post a comment or send me an email.
To follow that there is the premiere of Men Of The Cloth at the IFC Center (323 6th ave @ w. 3rd) at 5pm. Unfortunately, the Tuesday showing is sold out. But you may purchase tickets for Thursday here. I expect the documentary to be nothing short of stunning.
Like I said, good things are happening. Enjoy them liberally.
