Thanks.  I'll be in SF later in November and will be watching this thread for recommendations.  Good question, OP, and leave some for me.
To keep OT, PM inbound. EDIT:  Well, it's not a secret and in a sense, is OT:  I accepted the new job because it is a chance to serve my country overseas in my area of study and interest. I have been seeking such an opportunity for several years.  In the meantime, I have been successful at a decent company whose mission, products, services, culture, and clients do not inspire or engage me, and occasionally do the opposite.  Being there while my passion lies elsewhere...
  I have found this across diverse interests and enthusiast fora as well, including Bladeforums, Watchuseek, Candlepowerforums, Headfi, and even m4carbine.  Collectively, I refer to these as "guy gadget interests".  The scene here seems to me to be rather similar to other enthusiast fora, as aptly described by mcbrown back in post #15.  Well, and kev777.       Like so many, I found SF when I recently accepted a job that requires CBD.  T-shirts and jean shorts prevail at...

  Thanks for the pointer.  Of the three that they have now (Allegro, Galant, or the longer Double-Breasted), what would my best choice be?
Thank you all for the discussion and advice.  I deeply appreciate it. Central Oregon, and thank you.  Before I'm off to training in DC (and beyond) in early 2013, I will probably spend several weeks visiting family in the San Francisco and New York areas.   Thank you.  I appreciate the specifics, and your thoughtful "off duty" list as well.  I just won a pair of BR flat front chinos on eBay for $10 shipped.   As to the timepiece, I've dabbled in the "guy gadget" hobbies...
Hi, I'm John.  After years of IT and ski industry, I finally got a .gov job in my area of interest and need to get up to speed on menswear and general gentleman culture fast.  This forum has been a goldmine of knowledge so far and I look forward to more!
After several years of ski bumming and assorted expeditions, I have recently landed a dream job with the U.S. Department of State Foreign Service.  The next orientation in DC will probably begin in about 4 months.  After 6 weeks, I'm off to wherever they sent us.   This role requires professional business attire.  Today, my IT job requires no more than the casual end of business casual.  As a younger man, I worked as a paralegal in a conservative old Boston firm, but...
