While we’re on the subject of my mom and San Francisco… she’s recently added a lot of both men’s and women’s vintage clothing to her booth in the Mission District antique shop Stuff. If you’re in the Bay and haven’t been in to Stuff, it’s very much worth a visit - you’ll find it at 150 Valencia, just off Market next to the central freeway. If you’re looking for my mom’s area, you’ll find it about halfway in on the right-hand side of the first story - look for the green floor.
19th Century Officer’s Boot Trunk, via A Continuous Lean. Spectacular. We should all be lucky enough to have beauty like that in our lives. The best things get better, not worse, with age. That goes double for men’s clothes.
