 I fully intended for 2016 to be the last year for DB, for a variety of personal and logistical reasons. Prime among them that DB 2015 was particularly difficult for me.
 As it turns out, however, this year was largely stress free and completely rewarding.

 A few weeks after it ended I checked in with all of the hosts and prime exhibitors, and to a man they expressed a strong desire to go forward with the events.

 So next year you will see participation from all of the people who have helped build Denimbriuin into what it is today: Michael & Charla Harris, Roy, Nicholas Hollows, AB Fits, Standard & Strange, LVC,  Florian Bertmer, and more.


Next year will likely have a somewhat different format.

 I want Denimbruin (as I do denimbro) to get onto a more positive, community based vibe.
 I heard from quite a few denimbros and exhibitors that the DB events could be overwhelming, and that due to the jam-packed weekend it was hard to connect with other bros. I also get the feeling that some of the exhibitors can feel like the party atmosphere can make it hard to interface with attendees.
 I'll be working on those things with the hosts to develop some strategies around this while maintaining the good vibes of our events.

 One step I'm pretty sure we'll take is that the public events of DB will be reduced from three to two, with Friday probably going to a private, non-publicized meet & greet with the hosts and exhibitors, to which all attending denimbros will be welcome.
 I hope that this will be added inducement for forum members to travel to SF for the shows- as now there will be a much more intimate gathering on one day with better access to your favorite designers and manufacturers.
 Likely this day will also have a denimbro swap meet built in.
 Hopefully this will be enough to finally provoke one of our British members to attend...
(Ross, you didn't count in the past, though I suppose you do now!)

 I'll be taking input- anyone who has some please send it my way. Denimbruin started as an outgrowth of this forum, and should largely be a reflection of what our forum members would like it to be.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in Denimbruin over these last five years, both in person and online! It would truly be nothing without you.
