advantage: charity

December 4, 2009

Who knew charity could be so fashionable?! Housing Works (which happens to employ one of your TSF editors!) put on its annual Fashion for Action fundraiser event a couple of weeks ago in Chelsea, featuring clothes donated by designers and sold at discounted prices.

The event was chaired by designer Derek Lam, and was expected to generate millions of dollars for the non-profit, which services New Yorkers living with HIVAIDS by providing housing, social and medical services and job training.

off court, rafter rocks the long sleeve

How good is Patrick Rafter looking?! Rafter, in London for a ATP Champions Tour event, was rocking a relaxed and well-worn Hawaii long sleeve with Goran Ivanisevic. We always thought Rafter looked good, but who knew age was in his favor?! As for Goran… well, we like his watch.

The relived their epic Wimbledon match in their chat prior to the start of the tournament.

friday fare: food from the exo… fashion, too

December 4, 2009

The James Blake exhibition Tuesday night in Manhattan didn’t just feature top-level tennis, it also featured top-level eats. Bringing in chefs from around New York, the event had tasting and drinks from some of NYC’s most well known restaurants, including the pictured chocolate truffle tennis balls, prepared by Brian Young of Tavern on the Green. Those look delish!

John Mooney, chef at the Highland Manor, was the host chef of the event, which some exhibition-goers attended following the tennis Tuesday night. Later on in the night, Wyclef Jean took the stage at Pier 94 to perform.

While we’re still waiting from images from the Fila¬†Fashion Show that was to feature Blake’s Thomas Reynolds line, there wasn’t too much creativity happening on court earlier in the evening, as the Bryan Brothers and Sam Querrey all sported the same adidas garb, and Blake followed suit in a white shirt and black shorts by Thomas Reynolds.

While we weren’t too keen on the gent’s lack of creativity on the court when it came to their apparel, we’re still hoping that we’ll find this Thomas Reynolds zip hoodie under the Christmas tree in a few weeks. Yum! See the Peacoat Hoodie after the jump.
