The Proper Kit is Live! Join us Saturday, November 5th

The Proper Kit is live this Saturday, November 5th! We’ll be at Gary’s Loft in New York City from 10:30AM to 6:30 PM, showcasing 14 world-class vendors of fine men’s clothing, shoes, and accessories. We’ll also have a special IW Harper bourbon bar, where you can treat yourself to a tipple (or two – it’s a party, after all).

Beyond the beautiful goods, you’ll have the opportunity to mingle with friends you haven’t made yet. This is a celebration of our shared passions, and it would be a shame not to share them in person. Plus, several of our vendors will be offering Proper Kit specials to all guests, so if there’s something that catches your eye – well, you know the drill.

As sad as it makes us (and you), we know that some of our readers won’t be able to make it to the show. So, on Saturday, we’ll be doing our best to make sure you feel like you’re there in person. Follow along at The Proper Kit’s Facebook page and Instagram profile to see our “live streams” of the event. We’ll be posting photos and videos all day long, so you’ll be able to judge everyone’s outfits second-hand.

Of course, we hope to see you there. If you haven’t, make sure you let us know you’re coming.

RSVP for The Proper Kit!


We’re doing it again. On November 5th, 2016, The Proper Kit will return to Gary’s Loft in New York City, both the Penthouse and 11th floor (28 West 36th St, New York, NY 10018).

For those of you unfamiliar with the idea, this is the yearly trunk show co-hosted by Styleforum and A&H Magazine that unites world-class vendors with you; the friends, fans, and aficionados that make the world of menswear tick.

For those of you who attended last year, you’ll have an idea of what to expect: a group of world-class menswear brands and retailers, setting up shop in a beautiful space that’s devoted solely to you.

Styleforum’s motto has always been “Come for the clothes, stay for the company,” and that’s exactly why you should join us this November. Not only will we have fantastic garments, shoes, and accessories for you to browse, but the real reason you should come is to celebrate our shared passion for style. Some of the best-dressed men on the forum – and in the country – will be visiting; not just forumites, but writers, bloggers, photographers, thinkers, and hobbyists of all strokes. We’ll be discussing our loves (and hates, certainly) over I.W. Harper’s excellent bourbon, some great beer and wine, and tasty food.


As with last year, you’ll have to RSVP to reserve a spot. To do that, follow this link and sign up:
