Recap: Style & Grooming Event with J. Hilburn & Weldon Barber

We recently hosted an event with J. Hilburn & Weldon Barber in Bellevue, WA. It was an incredible environment for those who were looking to learn more about stepping up their style and network with other like-minded individuals.

If you missed the event, here were some of the event highlights:

  • J. Hilburn talked about the importance of fit, why details matter, and understanding your own personal brand. Shannon also went through a custom shirt selection to see how many design details there truly are and how one’s individual brand can be expressed just through a shirt.
  • Weldon Barber talked about current grooming trends and how Weldon adapts to them. They hosted a raffle drawing for two guests to each win a $50 gift card and product of their choice.
  • J. Hilburn & Weldon provided small gifts for guests as well as complimentary food, beverages, and neck shaves!

If you are interested in exploring J. Hilburn products, Shannon Bennett from the Bellevue showroom is personally offering $10 off of your purchase if you mention Seattle Gents within the next 3 months!

The Gentleman’s Prologue: Networking with Ahmad Corner

Conversations about Networking featuring Ahmad Corner of YPOS

Ahmad is founder of Young Professionals of Seattle (“YPOS”), an organization for professionals in Seattle to come together and network. We’ve collaborated with Ahmad and YPOS before, such as co-hosting last year’s Dapper as F*** event and hosting a panel event with Seattle Art Fair.

He talks about how he started YPOS with the intention of networking and helping brands grow. YPOS creates experiences for transplants and natives to get to know each other, meet people, and find job opportunities through events, workshops, and community involvement.

Networking is key to developing personal and social skills. You know what they say – it’s all about “who you know.” Listen to Ahmad talk about some of the do’s and don’ts of networking, why people go to networking events, how to prepare for networking events, and other tips.

2019 Fashion Tech Trends

2019 Fashion Tech Trends

On January 30th, Seattle Gents is hosting a panel discussion about how fashion and technology intersect. The fashion retail and e-commerce markets have transformed as technology has advanced over the years. As a result, brands and influencers must think about how they can speak to consumers, especially as the tech industry continues to grow. Here are some fashion tech trends we think will be relevant in 2019.

Brands focusing on affiliate marketing for influencers (which means more SALES)

As influencer marketing on social media has been on a significant rise over the past few years, brands are now getting smarter with how they want to work with influencers. It’s time to be more realistic and authentic with your content by going beyond just “spreading awareness.” We must think about how we can help brands with SALES, which is getting harder now because of the flood of ads.

Subscription-based revenue model

More and more retail brands are playing on e-commerce as consumers turn to online shopping. One way to incentivize consumers is to provide a recurring payment model. This is a trend that we think is going to continue heavily in 2019.

Voice search for purchase

As consumers are looking for more convenient ways to purchase, voice makes it quicker. Devices like Alexa and Google Home have collected data and made it easier for consumers to buy online simply by talking to them.

Sustainability

Brands and influencers are going to have to think about how to incorporate sustainable fashion in their content. People enjoy the idea that they are “saving the planet” by simply recycling items. Sustainability is connected with a global initiative for the environment and fashion & apparel is certainly in the discussion.

You won’t want to miss our discussion about how fashion and tech intersect! The panel event is perfect for those who are involved in fashion tech or are a social media influencer looking to grow his or her following.

When: Wednesday, January 30th from 6 to 8 PM

Where: ATLAS Workbase in Seattle (South Lake Union)

Moderator: Nick Hughes (Founders Live)

Panelists

Special thanks to our sponsors Evergreens Salad and Dote who will be providing light bites for guests to enjoy. There will also be complimentary beverages available.
