This is wroth a browse, if you're looking for things to eat in San Francisco. http://www.7x7.com/eat-drink/big-eat-2015-100-things-eat-sf-you-die-0#/0 Al's Place also recently got a write up in Bon Appetit's "Top Ten Best New Restaurants in America" http://www.bonappetit.com/restaurants-travel/best-new-restaurants/article/als-place-no-1
Saint Crispin's.
If you spray your suede shoes down with a waterproofer, they'll be even better for a bar environment than calf. I use Allen Edmonds' waterproofer, but here's a Leffot video on Tarrago
AFAIK, the demand for bespoke suits in China isn't that big. Unless you count Hong Kong as part of China. But on the mainland, bespoke tailors are usually invited out as a way to lend status to an event.

I'd like to order two sport coats from the family, but don't want to travel all the way to NYC for meetings and fittings. If we can get him to come out to the West Coast, that would be a lot more convenient. Also started a thread for this...
I'm hoping to get something made by Solito but don't want to travel all the way to NYC, where he's visiting again. Curious to see if anyone in San Francisco, or maybe even Los Angeles, might be interested in ordering something. If we round up enough orders, I may be able to convince him to add a West Coast leg to his tour. For those unfamiliar, Solito is a Neapolitan tailor.
