Wings + Horns
The Hayes Valley boutique and its North Beach offshoot house an array of boys-only outfitters like Wings + Horns (#1) and NYC designer, Robbert Geller (#7), mixed in with crossover brands like Rachel Comey (#5) and Cheap Monday. Overall, the style is progressive yet wearable, and the devil's truly in the details.
Calling all bridge & tunnelers, tourists and yes, even you locals -- there's a new reason to head out to North Beach, and it's not for a night of epic boozing, but rather, for a daytime tryst. That's right, take a little urban hike out to Acrimony's amazing new sister-store, ACRE/SF, a cafe-clothier that recently opened on Telegraph Hill.
For her latest retail endeavor, local fashion darling Jenny Chung chose to open a concept store that incorporates the little pleasures in life: clothing, accessories and a good cup of coffee. Twice the size of Acrimony, the loftly new storefront houses a full boutique and cafe, serving keenly fresly brewed Blue Bottle coffee, an assortment of bottled beverages, daily pastries from House of Bagels, and even some It's-Its ice creams sandwiches. That's right, ladies and gents -- shopping just got a lot sweeter.
Last week, we launched our Women's Summer Sale Picks -- this week, we thought we'd give some big love to SF menswear. From Unionmade to Goorin Bros, and covering everything from comfy denim to two-tone oxfords, we pulled the sharpest men's goods from local boutiques -- all on sale!
Happy shopping, (ladies and) gents.
