    San Francisco's Cable Car Clothiers is moving to Sutter Street (right down the block from the Hound and Alden) towards the end of the Summer, and are now having a 30%-70% sale.

    I think it can be a better location for them. Plus it gives them a chance to dump a lot of older, dusty inventory and spruce the new location up a bit. Back in the mid 1970's, when it was at another location and also called Robert Kirk, it was the only place I could find in the entire bay area that sold 100% khaki pants (the polyester blend decade). Over the years quite a few of my classic 3 button blue blazers and Harris tweed jackets came from there. It was a fun place to shop and discover classics.

    I wish them well with the move.

    I had a chat with them about their plans. They are going to have a two seat barber shop in the new space. They won't have as much floorspace as the current shop, but they have the option to acquire more space if it works out for them. They may cut back on the number of suits they keep in the shop. It will be interesting to see how it all shapes up.

    The famous Gowings store in Sydney had a Barber shop to attract customers.
