Haute Summer Cocktails: MensWearNetwork July 2016

It was the hottest day of the summer until the heavens opened up with a monsoon just as the MensWearNetwork group was set to descend upon The Lambs Club’s second floor bar at The Chatwal.

But the interior of The Club prevailed cool, serene and packed with just the right proportion of menswear industry members, including newcomers like menswear legend Alan Flusser, there for our July event to catch up after last week’s New York Men’s Day and NYFW:M menswear shows and this week’s Project, Capsule and MRket trade shows.MensWearNetwork July 2016

Manuary at MensWearNetwork’s January Lambs Club Gathering

November has Movember, for moustache-oriented mens’ health awareness. I vote we designate January as Manuary, for beard-oriented mens’ fashion awareness!

Case in point, the illustrious and magnificent facial hair on two of our distinguished guests last night at The Lambs Club as we celebrated the second year of our MensWearNetwork group, a gathering of menswear titans from around the world.

Derrill Osborn, retired Mens Clothing Director of Neiman Marcus, and former fashion editor and now Old School Shirt Makers‘ founder and creator, Kevin Stewart, both surprised us with their presence at The Lambs Club and their amazing beards.

Derrill’s has curls in his. Kevin’s is perhaps tamer than other past iterations he has rocked, but with a lot of wisdom in it! Note both of their accessories. Trust us, there will be more to be said about each one in future FWFash/Hi:5’s.

P.S. At the end of the night, Kevin Stewart wound up the winner of the Brenthaven Collins laptop sleeve case, so generously donated for our second business card raffle by public relations expert Lisa Wells. Major thanks go out to Lisa and to the Brenhaven company!!!
