If you’re somehow not yet convinced of Washington’s rep as a menswear capital, get ready to be impressed. The creators of five new, local menswear startups, specializing in a slew of accessories from hand-stitched ties to patterned socks, are gathering for a happy hour celebration in May—and you’re invited. The Art of Style is a free, public event that offers guests the opportunity to mingle with some of the city’s newest innovators in menswear: The creators of Bull + Moose (neckwear), Nice Laundry (socks), Read Wall (shirts and suiting), Stubble & ‘Stache (skin care and beard grooming), and Off the Cuff (style consulting) will be in attendance.

While enjoying cocktails and perusing the latest collections of the four retail labels, you’ll also have the chance to see the vibrant works of international artist Samara Shuter, known for her menswear-inspired paintings (as well as Off the Cuff’s logo); rumor has it that a few of her prints may even be up for raffle at the event.

The Art of Style. May 16, 5 to 7 PM at the Huxley (1730 M St., NW). Free; online RSVP required.
