With the majority of menswear press time dedicated to events taking place in or around NYC, Man Up San Francisco brings a breath of fresh air to the neglected west coast. Seriously, apart from a trade show here and there taking place in Vegas, I have yet to see a good event actually worth the trip out west. With shops like San Fran’s own Unionmade, Room4 Vintage and labels like Taylor Stitch and Pierrepont Hicks all set to be at the Cal Modern Art Gallery on the last weekend of January, it’s definitely a visit everyone should make if possible.
The men’s department is definitely evolving and men across the country (not just in the NY area) are taking notice. Behind Man Up are few distinguished gentlemen with whom everyone should become familiar. Watch the video for the event after the jump.
