Luxury Swiss watchmaker Baume & Mercier recently released a 2013 Christmas and holiday marketing video entitled “Celebrate Giving”. We are fans of Baume & Mercier and their level of sophistication, and craftsmanship and hospitality. The video, the first of its kind for the brand, displays the story of family and children coming together for the holidays, sharing old memories and creating new ones. the gift giving culminates in the sharing of a his and her Baume & Mercier watches given from parent to child. We must admit, this type of holiday may be a bit too unfamiliar for some to grasp, while others may recognize this as a comforting scene.
We will be hosting a series of three menswear shopping events this Fall with the fine folks at Bonobos Georgetown, DC. During these events will be discussing a few of our favorite things: fit, fabric, and function.
We will be introducing not only the latest offerings from Bonobos, but how they fit your body and lifestyle. There will be ample time to shop, mix and mingle, and take advantage of the new (or old) knowledge acquired.
The first of three events will be held Tues, Nov 26 from 5-7PM in DC. Space is limited to 20 guests. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there.
