Last week, we showed you our female favorites from the hip Lower Haight boutique. Now, here's one for the boys.
Though smaller in numbers, owner Yong Cho balances her women's and home goods with a carefully chosen assortment of manly merch. Among our top seven are locally designed sneakers by Blu Kicks (#5), Bonny Doon's Engineer Hand Salve (#6 - Hey, it works for computer engineers, too!), and state pride cufflinks (#2) that are also available with custom 24k gold plating. Check out the rest of our picks above.
