Among them was The Forgetful Gentleman, whose stationery has long been a staple on our desks. In part, the article notes, “[Nathan] Tan’s website began as a reminder system for men prone to forgetting their mothers’ birthdays.

Master colorist and clothing designer Alexander Julian will visit Wingtip Thursday from 3pm-7pm. In addition to his stunning range of linen shirts, Mr. Julian will be displaying his catalog of furniture designs (and maybe pouring some of his hand-blended wine).
