When Convert Man opened in Hayes Valley in August, it was a dignified affair with donuts and champagne. Now, it's time for a do-over. In November, the store will host an "epic" launch party, that will not only serve to celebrate Convert's SF-expansion and foray into menswear, but to announce the winner of the Convert Man of the Year contest. Yes, there's a contest! And the winner receives a sash!
The contest is Convert's way of showcasing men who are making a difference in the Bay Area. From a surfer who dedicates his time to cleaning up the beaches, to a chef who has a mission to only use local/sustainable produce, Convert wants to celebrate these awesome dudes. Do you know a guy who would be so perfect? Or someone you just want to see in a sash? You can nominate contenders on the Convert website through October 29th.
