Castro is @ the top of the hill in the video (that's 22nd street hill). Was very difficult not stopping in SelfEdge every few day. Did a few big shops a year..

I had a tremendous meal at Fleur de Lys last time I was in town.  Awesome experience, even had a sommelier that I didn't have to bitch-slap or tell to shut up (?!)  We wound up with a killer bottle that complemented the meal quite well.

I have always loved Slanted Door too. 
Think it, be it.

Shopping in San Francisco
« Reply #37 on: April 14, 2014, 08:56:43 am »
Hi everyone,

I am flying out to San Francisco and then Las Vegas in a few days and figured there must be some shops worth visiting. I also figured someone on here would know the area.

I don't have anything in particular in mind, and shopping is far from a priority on the trip, but it doesn't hurt to look.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

SelfEdge in The Mission. Take BART to 16th and Mission, head towards Valencia St, turn left and walk down to 18th and there it is. Whilst doing that 'run' I usually get out @ 16th/Mission, and head to Four Barrel which is on 15th and Valencia before walking to SelfEdge. Lots of odd ball shops in the Valencia corridor.

Hi,

Sorry for coming on here out of the blue, but I'm going to be in San Francisco Feb 13th to Feb 19th and was wondering if anyone on here would be willing to be interviewed about their interests in Japanese denim and use of clothing fora.  The interview would  just be an open-ended conversation in the location of your choosing, it would only take about an hour, your identity will be kept anonymous and I can compensate you for your time with a $50 honorarium.  I know this sounds a bit odd and spammy but its part of a wider research project on online menswear culture. 

I've already interviewed a bunch of folks on a British forum, and while its a different sort of forum you can see from over there that I'm genuine:
https://www.fuk.co.uk/threads/looking-to-interview-fuk-users-london/1/

While my own tastes veer more towards the Ivy Look, I'm partial to some more entry-level heritage stuff like LVC, Lee 101, Thorogood Boots and have spent my fair share of time reading clothing forums so I'm not a total outsider.

Here are my credentials as a researcher:

If anyone on here could help me out that would be massively appreciated!  Please PM or email nweiner@yorku.ca
