Did a quick round of shopping this weekend in San Francisco, weather was beautiful.
Barney's - ran into a fob couple decked out in all Gucci/Givenchy. Dude was trying on some Louboutin sneakers. Seemed like a lot of sizes (both clothing and shoes) were already gone in Balenciaga, Lanvin, MMM, Jil and Givenchy. Even Lim was looking pretty sparse. Geller had a tiny rack of mostly button down shirts and a couple T-shirts. Barena stuff is nicer in person than it looks online for the most part. Interesting to see BoO display between Jil and Dries. Felt like a lot less Boglioli than the last time I was there as well. There was a baby blue-ish Jil fur coat collar that was for sale. I almost wish I asked how much it was.
On the bright side: I convinced gf to check out some more SF-ish women's stuff. On the down side: she now has a ballpark idea of how much my jawnz cost. She's not a fan of the 5 zip (or really any of my leathers) or my boots - looks "ghetto". There was only 1 black 5 zip left at $2150. Maybe I will ask her to take a proper fit pic sometime so I don't have to post surreptitious selfies at awkward angles.
Bloomingdales -EG rack was nowhere to be found (although they had almost a FSR on everything during the last sales - for better prices than almost every SF approved store was offering). Saw an interesting Junya tweed coat for about $1650. There was maybe half a rack worth of Ervell and everything looked tiny so I didn't bother.
Archive - closed on Sundays.
MAC - was closed by the time I would have been able to get over there. Edited by cyc wid it - 8/19/13 at 7:27pm
it was, but more of a tangent (hence freddy); i have a vague memory of a monster i thought was from HL that had a big bazooka in place of one arm and maybe just a stump on the other, that's what i was really looking for, but i was too impatient to search very long

I was also really impressed with the Barena stuff I saw at Barney's in chicago. The materials were all very nice, and I'm a sucker for that kind of soft tailoring so of course I was into it. I would probably be saving up for a piece or two if I didn't already own like five casual blazers. Gonna be done with outerwear for a while...
