TO: Sally, Evan, Tess, Robin, Lily, Cole, Nina, Joy
CC: Toby
FROM: Brent
SUBJECT: A Late February Dinner Something

January 30, 3:11PM

You Guys!

Hope everyone is doing fabulously. So! I’m sure Tobin or myself have spoken to each of you as a couple or individually but we are finally getting our shit together enough to have a dinner party at our place. It’s been months (Years??) since we’ve tried to get something together so—Hey.—why not assemble the old Dinner Party Crew together to do something.

A few things! We are thinking of having this on February 22 since most of you said you were slammed through February and that a Saturday is best too. Please to confirm and thank you. Since this is Los Angeles and food trends are more fashionable than actual fashion trends, please relay what you can and cannot eat. We will do our best to accommodate!

Woo: very excited to get the old gang back together. Peace from the East (Hollywood).

The show fuses together popular culture items with his past and present as a Californian and tattoo artist. It is a very personal yet very accessible body of work.

The Opening Of Unionmade At The Grove

Unionmade Los Angeles The Grove 2014 1

While some other cities do indeed have it better than us, most of us can agree that mens’ retail in Los Angeles is at a pretty respectable place. We have our own J.Crew and a Topman and little, rad destinations like Wittmore and South Willard in addition to brands ranging from Band Of Outsiders to The Times coming from here: men are having a moment in Los Angeles. The most recent, notable entry is San Francisco’s Unionmade recently moving into The Grove. The move is somewhat surprising given the brand’s quick rise from Northern California Boutique to growing California menswear shopping destination. How were they able to handle a move into Los Angeles biggest, most notable shopping destination? They handled the task flawlessly.
