Will Leather Goods in Hayes Valley


Earlier this month, we were invited to the grand opening party of Will’s Leather Goods in Hayes Valley. We had such a fun time checking the goods and learning about the shop from the store manager, Shauntee. You might recognize that name as one of the members of the T&P scouting team so you know she […]

Jay Chan & Justin Sem


Shauntee zeroed in on Justin’s jungle leaves jacket and that’s how we discovered these two stylish gentlemen. What we liked most about their style is that it stood out from the rest of the crowd on the street that day. Justin definitely honed his style and has a fun, edgy approach to his style. Very […]

Ministry of Supply Launch Party


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. It was quite a well-dressed crowd and my lovely assistant, Ghezal and I had a great time checking out the wares, enjoying the delicious food, wine bar, and a pretty nice swag bag […]



The trig hunters (Shauntee, Gillian and myself) headed over to the Ferry Building’s Farmers Market this past Saturday to do some style scouting and Keenan was the first stylish man that we found. He stood out from the rest of the crowd in his casual but polished outfit. He incorporated classic pieces such as the Ray-ban Wayfarers […]

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 […]

William Way


It was a beautiful warm sunny day in San Francisco, which made it a bit difficult to find stylish men. I had spent a couple hours scouting the ferry building and the embarcadero with not even a false alarm. People were walking around in comfort clothes. I can’t blame them, but it does make the […]

Carlos Juarez of Vintage Artisan

Vintage Artisan

Meet Carlos Juarez, founder and designer of Vintage Artisan. I first noticed Vintage Artisan when I saw pictures of the Huaraches on Twitter. It was actually perfect timing as I was recently discussing the lack of options for men when it came to summer styling. Especially when it came to shoes. In an informal poll […]
