Hey everyone...

I am going to SF in a few weeks, staying in the SoMa area. Can anyone recommend some unique men's clothing stores? So far, I will be going to these (some are not unique but...):

Archive
Nomads
Villains Vault
Jack's
---
G-Star
Sak's Fifth
Bloomingdale's

I am looking for casual to dressy casual clothes. No suits and no "preppy" type clothes like Abercrombie or Polo.

I like stuff like DSquared, G Star Raw, Dolce & Gabbana, Varvatos, Hugo Boss. I also like casual "surfwear" clothes like Billabong, Quicksilver, Hurley, Volcom, etc.

I hope this gives you an idea of what I am looking for, and thanks in advance for any help.

there are two Rolos on Howard. one of them is an outlet. some fairly decent deals. there's an American Rag on Van Ness.

and of course there's all the stores in the Union Square area. they've got a good sized Neiman Marcus which i'm sure will have a good selection of D & G and John Varvatos. maybe even D^2.

if you want a truly museum-like experience with the nicest salespeople ever (even when they know right when you walk in that you can't afford anything in the store), go to Wilkes Bashford. take the elevator to the top floor and make your way down.

otherwise, just enjoy one of the best freakin' cities in the world.

Be sure to visit Haight Ashbury. It's like stepping into a time machine.

Any particular stores/streets you recommend? I'm trying to save time so I don't end up walking around aimlessly. I already have Villains Vault on my list.

Thanks
