You put your pants on one leg at a time. And the “like everyone else” stops right there. Said pants can be cuffed, rolled, frayed, tucked, or (depending on the holiday) non-existent. Men in San Francisco wear clothing with a point-of-view, and we at The Bold Italic celebrate such sartorial opinions.
Thus we invented The Haberdash – a week-long men's fashion and style event August 23-29 – when you can get deals on the details that make you stand out. Just mention "The Bold Italic" when you walk in the door.
Each night we will be throwing events hosted by our co-presenters:
MONDAY From 6-8 p.m., Revolver will be pouring free beer, offering 30% off select items, and hosting an art opening for Jesse Pollock's new photo zine "Guys" as well as a performance by Namesake.
TUESDAY From 6-8 p.m., On The Fly will host a free scotch tasting and 25% off any single item in the store, including Wolverine boots, shaving tools, and flasks. Bike Basket Pies will be there as well with savory and sweet deliciousness.
WEDNESDAY From 7-9 p.m., The Bold Italic will throw a Men's Fashion Show & Party at The Burritt Room, with cocktails from Distillery No. 209, a photo booth, and local guys walking the runway sporting fall looks. ($15)
THURSDAY From 6-8 p.m., Jack's San Francisco will be giving out free beers, offering 50% off top designers and 30% off of premium denim, and playing host to a Taylor Stitch pop up store with custom fittings.
FRIDAY From 7-9 p.m., Candystore Collective will pour free beer, offer 30% off of select items, and celebrate cafe racer and vintage motorcycle fashion with a pop up store from Martingale Clothiers.
