Oh, we know your type. Even if you don’t.
Outfit him for his next meeting with Cordarounds’s ingenious new belted laptop sleeve. Saving files becomes way cooler with a Four Eyes USB drive, shaped like a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses (The Curiosity Shoppe, 855 Valencia Street, at 20th Street; 415-671-5384).
Although we don’t condone drinking and boarding, these Burton Vice Mitts (conveniently) have a zip-out beverage Koozie. Marine Layer’s online Fit Finder makes it easy to find him a super-soft shirt that fits to a tee with sizes like Smedium and Marge.
Nothing will make him feel fancier than a vintage bow tie or a just-released handmade, reversible scarf in cashmere and patterned silk (The Brooklyn Circus, 1521 Fillmore Street, at Geary Boulevard; 415-359-1999). Handkerchiefs get a rugged twist in The Hill-Side’s chambray version (AB Fits, 1519 Grant Avenue, at Union Street; 415-982-5726).
Let him deck the walls with his love of all things pork with a vintage letterpress poster, like “Frisco Pig Was a Friend of Mine,” from 4505 Meats. Give him a morning jolt with artisan roasts from new local website GoCoffeeGo. Or just let ’im get carnal with a butchery class at Avedano’s Holly Park Market (235 Cortland Avenue, at Bonview Street; 415-285-6328).
Please gift accordingly.
