Anonymous asked: By the way, do the Chicago area menswear bloggers still do meet-ups? I am hoping to begin my own very soon, and am curious to know if this still goes on. Sorry, I couldn't fit this in the previous "question."
Yeah. Less frequently these days. But every now and again, we still get together, especially when I’m in town for a weekend.
The beautiful thing, is that since we began doing meet ups in 2011, many of us have developed actual personal relationships. I no longer reside in Chicago and my friend Kiyoshi took an amazing opportunity out west. However, Meredith, Eric, Ian, Tommy, Kyle and Alan are fam as far as I’m concerned. And with fam, you don’t need formal events to say hey.
Meet ups are great for getting acquainted with beautiful people. You’ll be surprised how much more you have in common once you get past tumblr, blogging, and menswear.
