Ivy Style contributing writer James Kraus has organized a meetup for fellows trads in the Los Angeles area for next Wednesday, April 12, at 7 PM. The plan is to pick a nightspot in Beverly Hills with some midcentury heritage, to be decided based on the number of RSVPs.
Working behind the scenes and with the help of Ivy Style’s Facebook group, there are already a solid six or eight guys and that’s before this post, which should help build the fellowship.
Other distinguished persons slated to attend are Jeffery Plansker, who produces the radio show Jazz Advance that ran an Ivy-themed show last October; Ryan Twardzik, shoe designer and brother of Eric who has written several pieces for Ivy Style; and Pasadena-based custom clothier Jonathan Behr, an old tennis buddy of mine who makes custom sack suits for several SoCal trad diehards.
Send your RSVP to James at this address. And of course we’ll follow up with party photos.
If you’d like to reach out to fellow Ivy Style readers in your area to form a meetup of your own, I’m happy to help out so please use the contact button above.
