The Archive For Men *

Exquisitely stylish menswear
Don't let the the modest storefront of this tiny union square shop dissuade you from checking out one of the finest West Coast collections cutting-edge fashions, straight from the runways of Paris and Milan, the ateliers of Tokyo. The Archive, where owners David and Arthur will personally trick you out for any occasion, offers rare designs from creative fashionistas M.A. +, CP Company, Rick Owens, Robert Geller and Tokyo's amazing Undercover and Label Under Construction. San Francisco's own military-influenced Nice Collective earns its own rack of cool duds.

    Whole new shopping experience
    Okay, i have to admit than when i first popped into The Archive I was a Brooks Brothers, J Crew kinda dresser. Nothing fit quite right, all right angles and very baggy, and i looked just like everyone else in SF. This store literally changed my wardrobe. While I came out of the store with a smaller bank account, I found all kinds of cool treasures, many at quite reasonable prices. Particularly love my MA + leather jacket, Undercover vest and Nice collective cargo pants. If you get them at a downtime, say a weekday afternoon, you will feel like you are in the middle of your own fashion show, with David and Arthur the owner providing a personal tour of the latest.
