On Tuesday, The Bold Italic partnered with San Francisco’s Artful Gentleman, a bespoke suit-maker, for their annual The Haberdash. The event, billed as a celebration of men’s style and music, took place at the grandiose Great American Music Hall and featured a Ploom e-cig vaporizing lounge, SnapYourself photo booth and live music by Brooklyn folk band Woods.
Curated by Jake Wall, the fashion show portion of the evening had “everyday” male models in outfits by local boutiques and apparel and accessories designers including Welcome Stranger, Elder & Pine, SomNoir, Motley Goods, Thread Council, and Justin Jamison.

We performed as well, but for the SnapYourself photo booth.
Sorry Ploom, but the e-pipe is way more stylish.
