We had the privilege of sitting next to now-famous blogger Brock Keeling of SFist for a number of years when he was our clubs editor. So we can tell you authoritatively that he is stylish, sometimes cruelly so. Always subtle, sharp, and body-conscious, his clothing was better than ours, every day, as was his hair and skincare regime. We think he may attend the fourth annual Boxer Rebellion, since at least one of the designers at this underwear-focused fashion show has been known to use bare-crotched celebrities as a visual motif: This is right up Brock's alley. The designer, Improperazzi, also features "yes smoking" buttons (no diagonal line, just a picture of a cigarette), a generally slim fit, and blatant drug imagery all very Brock. Other designers include Vintage Joy, owner of the half boring, half hilarious slogan "Changing the world of style, styling the world of change," Mei Lin, Dan Gallagher, and Cara Barnard. Murder of Lilies, the Catholic Comb, Ghost to Atom, and others provide the rock.
