Designer Gear (plus Sneakers):Harputs Market 1525 Fillmore St, near O'Farrell; The Fillmore; 415.923.9300
Harputs is knocking 60% off their globally sourced spring/summer lines, from Stephan Schneider's light cotton slacks/half trenches/V-necks, to Yohji Yamamoto's baggy, multi-fabric suitery, to subtly branded not-so-subtle threads (and leathers) by Belgium's Maison Martin Margiela. Also: hit their next door Adidas emporium for half-off multi-colored, future-styled sneaks (Forum lows, zx7000, zx9000), plus Stan Smiths, which, like Stan, are white, and from the past.
