3153 16th St, btwn Valencia and Guerrero; The Mission; 415.863.3935
On-the-cheap threads from Sweden's WeSC (stretchy skate culture/architecture-inspired tees, lightweight meshy jackets), variously hued jeans by (now super) Cheap Monday, Surface to Air's covert outerwear (e.g., the Blade Bomber in leather or cotton/polyurethane), and wooly pea coats and cardigans from Brown Sound -- a puzzling moniker for clothes that smell totally fine.
Much of it's up for sale at CandystoreCollective.com

All non-suit stuff's severely discounted, including woven button downs and cowl neck hoodies by Helmut Lang, slacks and khakis from Nice Collective, and Chinook blazers made from moleskin, because it's hard to feel natty in salmon skin.
