Boy Oh Boy: Gifts for Guys

Rivaling as-yet-unexplained mysteries such as crop circles and the exact contents of Hormel Spam is another age-old conundrum that plagues us, especially at this time of year: why are guys so &*%^@&*%! hard to shop for?

We may not have an answer to the question, but can offer the following suggestions for the gaps in your guys’ gift lists.

Link Love: Joy Bianchi's Couture, Changes on Maiden Lane and more...

SF Luxe revels in Joy Bianchi’s private collection of vintage couture.

Adding to the spate of recent retail changes in Union Square, we hear Yves Saint Laurent will likely close on Maiden Lane.

New and Not Just For Kicks: Chrome Shoes

You don’t need to be a badass bike courier brave enough to navigate the wilds of downtown San Francisco’s seriously trafficked streets to justify a pair of hardcore kicks from Chrome's new men’s shoe line, released this week.

Four styles strong, the debut shoe collection ($70-$90) features the same tough construction and durability that have made the 14-year-old company’s utility and messenger bags beloved by the local bike set, but are designed with regular pavement-pounders in mind.

“They’re just bomber shoes that last. If you get on a bike, you’re stoked, but if not...this is a core urban street shoe,” says Chrome’s Rob Reedy.

The Ultimate SF Father's Day Gift Guide

If there’s one rule of Dad gift-giving, it’s this: he’s not going to give you any great gift ideas. After all, if he knew he needed it, he’d already have it. We think the best gifts for Dad are the ones he doesn’t even know he needs.

He may not realize it, but his hard work and dedicated dad-ness probably means he needs some serious R&R. For guy-friendly pampering he won’t come up with on his own, whisk him away to Cocoon Urban Day Spa for a Father’s Day Package that includes a dude-friendly sports massage, manicure, pedicure and – but of course – beer.

New for Him: Peasants and Travelers Bags

Everyone’s got baggage. It’s whether he's packing baggage that’s up to the task at hand that counts.

And that’s exactly what new San Francisco men’s bag company Peasants and Travelers has for the fellas – and, really, anyone looking for weekenders, totes and carryalls with a healthily frills-free prepster-meets-urbanite attitude.
