The LA Times kicked off President’s Day Weekend this year with an homage to the most stylish president the U.S. has ever seen, JFK.
To celebrate this sense of style and panache even more, they’ve included our box set from The Mailer Collection (S/S ’11), aptly named The Kennedy, as part of their round up.

GENTRY was part of Thrillist’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for men today, which was broadcast on FOX TV NY.

Here are several notes we’ve gathered over the years of hosting dinners that we feel are essential to a successful dinner party:
+ Guests : A balance of familiar and unfamiliar- there should always be a dark horse or two who are new faces, they always add a sense of novelty to the conversation. The 80-20 rule of vocation- Not everyone should work in the same industry
+ Restaurant / Food : Family style is always the best. Sharing food is a communal experience.
+ Seating : The art of the seating chart is truly an art form. Split up couples where possible and the boy-girl seating vs. the girl-girl seating is always preferable.
+ Host : Should always sit in the middle of the table.
+ Drinks : Before all sitting down, find a spot near the bar- or when available, around a fire pit outside- where people can ease into the dinner
+ Have a guest list like the ones pictured here:
Mr. Baker – French couture house that cannot be revealed
Mr. Stone – Levis
Ms. Imamura – GENTRY
Mr. Choi – Puma
Mr. Ashby – Michael Kors
Ms. Shaw – Noted Communications
Ms. Waldman – Voyeur
Mr. Anderson – Cultural Engineer
Ms. Tsukahara – Grad Student
We previewed our S/S 2011 collection along with the custom ties and tie bars we designed expressly for the staff of The Soho House.
Thank you to all our friends, family, stylists, editors, buyers, and members who came to support.
A special thank you goes out to Ashley Lent and Shelley Armistead of Soho House for all the hard work they put into making this partnership a reality.
The crowd, made up of mostly Los Angeles’s fashion elite, were all dressed impeccably, looking ready for a 1920’s pre-prohibition ball.
GENTRY loves Ms. Laury Smith.
If GENTRY had a son, this is definitely what we would hope he would look like.
