Spotted / San Francisco / Hayes Valley


As the name suggests, I did feel very welcome coming into this shop. The space is immense and the guys running the place are real good about checking in with you without being overbearing. They understand most folks stopping in are just looking and are more inclined to stay longer to check out their woodsman-chic selections without someone breathing down their neck. And that I did. Even though it was a men’s shop, I started eyeing things I could even see using for myself, like those bright woven flasks and Pendleton blankets.
