Second-hand shops are essential for those times when you've got to look like WHAM! and smell like Bea Arthur -- but they're ill-equipped to handle more refined, less Bengay needs. Get fresher vintage, at the new suiGeneris, opening today.
Spawn of the same-named Castro store, sG's a boutique consignment service that showcases discounted pieces of designer garb, each no more than five years old -- a veritable Neverland Ranch of couture.
Most stock's listed at 20-30% of the original retail price: everything from suits by D&G, YSL, and Armani, to cashmere by Mark Jacobs, to jeans by Diesel, G-star, and Levi's (Body By Jake is also available, but only if you give 110% percent).
If what you're after's not in-store, plug your designer-item wish list into sG's database, and they'll call you when something comes in; spend the lag time deluding yourself that you're not like those other guys who keep designer-item wish lists.
If you've got your own goods to consign, sG'll sell 'em for a 50/50 split, quick cash you can use to buy your own golden girl everything she wants -- like a small diamond, or an analgesic that targets deep, penetrating heat right at the source of her pain.
