This store offers a mash-up of styles: a little bit nautical, a little bit surf, slightly buttoned-up, but with a dash of Mission plaid. If you're looking for solid basics, you'll find button-downs, henleys, wool coats, and jeans from brands like General Assembly, Alternative Apparel, Fidelity, and Scotch & Soda. (The selection of coats, jackets, and knitwear is particularly strong here.) But owner Robert Patterson. who also runs Voyager SF in the Mission, prides himself on importing high-quality international brands you won't find anywhere else in the city. Those looking to stretch themselves sartorially can get into printed shirts and knits by Parisian label Etudes, bomber jackets by Aussie brand Zanerobe, and Yuketen mocs and suede lace-ups by the Japanese-born Yuki Matsuda. Don't skip the tiny back room, packed with sale racks and gifts like handmade ceramics, alpaca throws, and cedar sake cups.
