The infamous December Bender continues … Wednesday evening, DC’s Dapper Dons dragged their well dressed selves back out into the chill and then into the new private event space (which has been getting great raves – in fact we’ll have a Punch Profile with co-owner Ryan Seelbach soon) The Huxley on M Street, NW.
With complimentary Prosecco and vodka cocktails in hand, the familiar co-ed group mingled, perused through the magazine and discussed the usual, “What are you doing for the holidays?” and “What was up with that one party?” and “Are you going to the next one?” and “Oh, I love your hair/eye makeup/lipstick/dress/fur/earrings/necklace/tie/scarf/shoes/jacket” …. and so on and so on.
At the end of the shindig, as I walked out, I spied with my little eye, a cluster of gift bags, which I was not allowed to have, as they were meant for the Men of Style only.Â The Grooming Lounge generously provided the bags and included their products. Other man swag bag participants included a belt from Top Rank Vintage, silver collar stays and gift certificates from Michael Andrews Bespoke, gift vouchers from Suit Supply, tailoring discount from Ginger Root DC and gift cards from Hugh & Crye menswear.
