Trig and Polished at the Ferry Building

This trig man was spotted from across the street as he stood out from all the business suits and tourists in his stylish ensemble. My eyes zeroed in on his black wool coat and then when I saw the rest of the outfit, I told my assistant, Alexandra, that we had to get his picture. […]

Cardigan Casual

While walking down Market in downtown San Francisco, this man stood out from the rest in his olive green cardigan. In an earlier post, I alluded to my love of seeing men in cardigans, so obviously I had to snap a picture of this Sweater Guy. In a gorgeous green and a modern cut, the […]

Menswear Designer- Junya Watanabe

Junya Watanbe Fall 2011 Menswear Collection An absolutely gorgeous collection from Japanese designer, Junya Watanbe. He reinvents and restructures those traditional menswear elements that I love such as elbow patches, plaid, and blazers. Personally, I think men dress better in the colder months. So much more to choose from in terms of pieces (coats, jackets, […]

Rockin’ The Plaid Pants

Not everyone can rock the plaid pants, but this man has got it down to a science. He’s doing it… and doing it well. By choosing a neutral brown plaid in a modern cut trouser and pairing it with solid colors and classic pieces such as a denim jacket and leather lace-up boots, he avoids […]

Favorite Things Hybrid

Glasses + scarf + cardigan + blazer = Trig & Polished

This man needs to give lessons on putting an outfit together. He mixes it up by combining traditional menswear and super modern footwear. He has fun with his style. Instead of picking the obvious boots or leather shoes, he picks something that makes him stand out. The shoes remind me of the famous herve leger […]

Eric, The Man with the 24K Gold Tie

I’m gonna be honest… stylish men are hard to find. It wasn’t looking good on Valencia on this gray and misty day, until the clouds parted for 16 seconds, sunbeams penetrated the sidewalk and next thing I know, this super trig man appeared on our path. In this amazing outfit. So amazing that it gets […]

Biker Style

We spotted this handsome biker leaving The Summit on Valencia. He has a clean utilitarian style. Everything fits well and everything he is wearing seems to have a purpose for bike riding. I love that he deviates from the typical hipster fixie rider uniform of super tight pants. He’s got an athletic look that is […]

Marco

Another great color palette. Muted browns and greys livened up by the navy blue saddle shoes. Marco mixes traditional menswear and modern style by pairing the plaid scarf and the vintage inspired shoes with modern cut pants and a large watch. Topping his look off with a friendly smile, he looks every bit the gentleman. […]

He broke up the blackness with a charcoal wool hat, a black and white print scarf and classic white striped black leather adidas. Bookmark on […]
