Dinner at Black Fleece
In my last post I mentioned the Black Fleece opening on Fillmore Street. Last night, a lively crowd welcomed the designer Thom Browne and honored Jennifer Siebel Newsom and her documentary at a lovely dinner in the Black Fleece store.

One of the things Thom is known for is his red, white and blue grosgrain ribbon detail in his designs so I marched into the affair in a red dress to keep in the spirit.

Thom, clad in his signature gray suit was very happy to be in San Francisco. Next season, he tells me he will do women's for the first time in his signature collection.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom wore Black Fleece and made it her own with a spunky beret.

Mayor Gavin Newsom explained the finer details of San Francisco zoning to Thom and Mr. del Vecchio, president of Brooks Brothers.

Jason Lewis of Sex & the City attended. Almost every woman and man vied for a photograph with him (Marissa Mayer, Hilary Newsom Callan & Lori Puccinelli).

Including Geoff Callan in a very buoyant Black Fleece ensemble.
