Last Friday, the Trig & Polished team headed over to check out the launch party for Ministry of Supply’s pop-up shop in San Francisco.

The Men of Klein Epstein & Parker

Klein Epstein & Parker Men

On a recent trig hunt in Hayes Valley, Gillian and I stumbled upon this menswear shop, Klein Epstein & Parker. When I spotted the mannequin out front, I knew this place was going to be a jackpot of stylish menswear. The styling exemplified everything I look for in men’s formal fashion. A fitted men’s suit with accessories […]

Kimathi of Buyu Collection

Kimathi Buyu Collection on Trig & Polished

Kimathi was definitely a person who stood out from the crowd. I saw him across the street as throngs of the financial district crowd passed him by. Yes, he had on a suit as did most of the other men that were walking by, but Kimathi had something special. He styled up a simple navy […]

Omid Scheybani

The first thing that caught our attention about Omid were those gorgeous shoes. Turns out those shoes used to belong to his father who bought them on a trip to India in the 80′s. Looking at them says a lot about how Omid and his father take care of their shoes. That and the fact […]

Randy Brewer of Convert

Earlier this month, T&P attended the opening party for the Convert Shoe Store on Fourth Street in Berkeley. It was there where we met the owner, Randy Brewer. Decked out in American made apparel, it is clear that he puts more effort into his fashion choices than simply just what looks good. The shirt and […]
