Followers of Pennsylvania-based cult favorite Gitman Bros were on hand this past weekend to experience the label’s first San Francisco custom shirt event at Hayes Valley boutique Acrimony. Known for its idiosyncratic, quirky and off-beat array of colorful prints, flannels and plaids, Gitman Bros has become the boutique’s best selling shirt brand, so it should come as no surprise that Acrimony owner Jenny Chung specifically sought out the brand for a one-of-a-kind event for San Francisco shoppers.
One thing we can always appreciate: a well-dressed man. Finding proper toppers for the men in your life is now a little easier, thanks to the new ready-to-wear men’s shirt line from San Francisco-based Taylor Stitch.
Walk into into Eel and Ermine in Presidio Heights, and, unlike most boutiques, you’ll see the owners in action designing their own pieces from streamlined dresses with vintage fabric to boyfriend shirts with feminine touches amid earth-toned decor and furnishings and accessories they, for the most part, handcrafted themselves.
