ACL’s chief trend correspondent Mister Mort, spent the afternoon in San Francisco’s Cable Car Clothiers checking out the goods and getting some gentleman street style. As per usual, Mordechai is all about the details. Check out his photos and thoughts below. More at MisterMort.com
Above: He had just walked in, his son behind him holding the door. I immediately think that this must be the proprietor. Wrong I was…though the second he walked through that door I had to get a picture. I said under my breath to the salesperson, I must meet this man. So I introduced myself and asked if it would be okay to photograph him and he lost about 30 years and just stood there smiling statuesque. He had brought his club jacket to be shortened.
Above: Not sure how to describe these fine shoes. It is a loafer with a high vamp and a monk strap buckle. This man was so insanely impeccable I never felt more like a schlump! I like a break in a trouser sometimes — and this is a very good example. Not every man needs to show their socks or ankle — some of us are more reserved.
Above: Yes, that is father and son. Within 3 minutes of walking in the door I’ve met the gentleman, and had the dad taking his shoe off to see who the maker was! It was rubbed out and eight eyes couldn’t make it out, but boy were they something.
Above: These are just magnificent. Whether you play on a major league diamond or just want to look like you get paid…
Above: Love how the wider stripes are not seer sucker but some other type of puckering cotton. I need these.
Above: There were many things I want at Cable Car, but this here item really made me smile, saw on the way out… I’m glad I stopped for the 4th time to “look back” to be sure I didn’t miss anything.
