Let's face it, briefcases aren't for everyone. In fact, they aren't ideal for most modern men. Enter the rising rucksack: mixing schoolyard nostalgia and vintage design appeal into one hyper-functional bag.
Last Saturday, I caught up with local artist, Charmaine Olivia, at the opening of her first SF solo show, Ritual, (on display through February 4) at The Shooting Gallery. The artist donned a gorgeous, black, floor-length dress with cut-out details, Jeffrey Campbell pumps and her signature mix of eclectic jewelry (some of which is currently on display as part of her show).
This season, color, texture and embellishments transform the classically androgynous loafers into strong, feminine footwear. With prints, patent and pony-hair, these 10 tradtionally preppy flats are SF-perfect and anything but boring.
While it's become an increasingly popular trend for stylish summer menswear, foregoing socks can be scary for a lot dudes out there. Fear not. Save the flip-flops for the beach, and don't fuss over clunky man sandals -- instead, look to one of these sunny-day loafers and check out our tips for going sockless:
We spotted ex-7x7 editorial assistant, Lauren Jones, with her adorable pup, Killer, out for a stroll on Divisadero.
A new year and sunny skies ahead -- January doesn't get much better than this. Inspired by the summery weather, we thought we'd round up a few of our favorite on-trend sunglasses.
Sun out and shorts on, we spotted David Choi, waiting for a haircut at Population salon on Divisadero. I really like how David's fedora and shawl collar cardigan elevate his otherwise basic t-shirt and shorts outfit. Those classy finishing touches also soften the provocativeness of his locally designed t-shirt by CALAB.
New Year's Eve is a great excuse to take your shirting up a notch. Why not go all out with French (Musketeer) cuffs and a pair of sweet 'links?
If you're new to the fold-over + cufflink get up, fear not -- men should use cufflinks as women do jewelry: to enchance an outfit and show off one's personality. With everything from Limited Edition Darth Vader Cufflinks (#1) to a handy Bottle Opener pair (#10), our list is well-suited for the SF man.
