It might be the arresting scent of leather and Brut that greets you at the door, but Cable Car Clothiers ("San Francisco's British goods store since 1939") simply screams Father's Day.* The place has a mountain of headwear to choose from — wool newsies, Borsalino fedoras, safari-ready pith helmets, and Greek fisherman caps — and various styles that, according to the clerk, "are also very fashionable for young ladies these days." If your dad isn't into lids, a minute's browsing is all it takes to come up with other options; there are piles of shaving brushes, wool fat soaps, scarves, vested suits, cuff links, walking sticks, and haberdashery galore. And though the hands-on appeal of the Downtown storefront is a treat, its sleek Web site can save you the trip. (*Father's Day is June 18.)
