    The owner of Cable Car Clothiers has kindly offered to host Styleforum members and their guests for appetizers, cocktails and fun this coming May 2nd for a Meetup. We will meet at Cable Car Clothiers from 6-8pm and then head out for a no-host dinner at a nearby establishment TBD.

    Cable Car Clothiers is San Francisco's oldest haberdashery and one of the few authentic traditional menswear retailers remaining in the country. It is the perfect place to find a natural shoulder Southwick suit, select from any one of their hundreds of fine hats or find quality British men's grooming products and accessories.

    Having moved to it's new location last fall, the store is now run by the founders grandson and our host, Jonathan Levin. Jon has added Nicky the Barber, a "period correct specialist" who can give you that authentic Deco-era 30's style hair cut or straight razor shave.

    Come on out and join us. Feel free to invite friends and/or bring a date for the evening. Jon has some special things planned for us.

    It helps to manage these Meetups if you can RSVP in this thread if you will be joining us for the reception and/or dinner. Thanks!

    Date : Thursday May 2

    Time: 6pm for drinks, 8pm for a no-host dinner at The Irish Bank, 10 Mark Lane

    Location: Cable Car Clothiers 110 Sutter Street, San Francisco http://www.cablecarclothiers.com/

    Holy shit! This made my day! I live in Virginia but I'll be in San Francisco for work May 1-5 and I was already planning on going to Cable Car Clothiers! I'll have to peace out at 6:30 to be on time for a work dinner, but I look forward to meeting everyone.

    Count me in. It's always great to pop-in to a San Francisco classic. I'll likely wear one of my vintage Cable Car pieces...that is, unless it actually warm.

    CCC has offered a traditional, 3 button, soft shoulder Southwick jacket and 3 piece suit as long as they have been in business. (Southwick was founded in 1929, Cable Car in 1939) Here is an example of what they carry in classic Harris Tweed:
