SF Street Style: A Modern Ad Man Shows Us Four Spring Looks, in The Mission

Meet Gabriel (Gabe) Johnson, born in Spanish Harlem, raised in Boston and, as of six years ago, a proud resident of San Francisco.

Gabe works as an adman, writing slick copy for the local boutique agency, Engine Company 1. When he's not busy getting wordy, he's involved in the local art and music scenes or in the kitchen, cookin' up something tasty.

Gabe kind of does it all, and he looks damn good while doing it. From nautical stripes to frayed-edge shorts, check out what he's wearing this spring. 

SF Street Style: Dark Autumn Palate in the Castro

While wandering the Castro, I spotted Jay L. Malvar in a perfectly transitional fall outfit. I love the deep autumn palate, offset by the gold rose pin and how his leather jacket was hung gently over his shoulders.

Look of the Week: Dapper Dad

Menswear is all about personal style. After you have the right fit, it's only a matter of how far you want to take it. That said, a lot of guys don't know what their personal style is. This Father's day, try something new -- mix a few fun pieces into your wardrobe for an instantly sharp, dapper look.

Just remember, fashion should be fun and, with menswear, the fun is in the details. Check out these reversible shorts, the leather vs. canvas contrast on these comfy (integrated Nike Air technology) wingtips, and the etched-in witticisms in these locally designed collar stays. Hint: these make great gifts, too!

Link Love: Ben Sherman Ditches the Ladies, Rodarte for Target Drops and more...

Sorry girls, this week brought word that Ben Sherman is planning to exit the women’s apparel business for good.

Rodarte for Target arrived in stores and the retailer’s online shop yesterday. By early afternoon, almost every item we perused online was already out of stock.

The Sartorialist defends the recent female-to-male imbalance on his blog.

Fashion Mashup: Upper Haight meets FiDi

Seeing the (ahem) popularity of last week's mashup of two of the most stereotyped SF neighborhoods got us thinking of how we could possibly follow with another. But alas, once the Haight was mentioned it all became clear. This week's muse is a businessman by day who's a hippie at heart, reflected in his style by adding a dash of 'Summer of Love' flair into his work wear. So turn on some Dead and indulge yourself:
