Two Bay Area heavyweights and natives Daniel Wu and Dan The Automator stopped by the showroom for a visit today.

Aside from both being great guys and super talented individuals; they share the appreciation for timepieces automobiles, Scotch and tailored clothing.

We had the pleasure of meeting and fitting Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida this weekend at our Pop Up / Trunk Show event at The Social Trust in Downtown Los Angeles’ Art District. Marcus Almeida, also known as “Buchecha” (or Bochecha), is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Rodrigo Cavaca and a member of the Checkmat academy, being widely regarded as the greatest grappler of his generation and arguably of all time in the sport of BJJ.

Harris Tweed

George and his best friend Diesel shot at his wedding at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana. We outfitted George in a classic three piece suit in a green Harris Tweed Herringbone with a Burgundy and burnt orange windowpane fabric by Holland & Sherry. Could’t have chosen a more appropriate cloth and look for a country ranch wedding. The jacket has a lightly padded shoulder and we cut the trouser with a more traditional medium break with 2″ cuffs.
George not only is an amazing human being but he is also owner of San Francisco’s premier fly fishing shop Lost Coast Outfitters. Visit their awesome brick and mortar shop in Jackson Square.
