Ghurka opened their beautiful new store at 245 Post Street in San Francisco just in time for the Holidays. The 1,000 square foot space features attractive displays of their fine leather bags and accessories. 

Marley Hodgson founded Ghurka in 1975. Soon his bags and accessories became popular for offering a distinctive masculine look and could be found at the finest men’s specialty stores across the country.

In the late 90’s the traditional Ghurka look fell a bit out of fashion when black ballistic nylon became all the rage. The company was sold in 2003 and it’s then new owners moved it in the direction of a fashion accessory company with production offshore. That strategy didn’t work but fortunately Ghurka now has all-new owners who have brought manufacturing back to the USA and are building on the brands traditional designs and legacy.

Many new designs are now available and a furniture line will debut sometime next year. For more information on Ghurka and it’s history visit their website and especially the new San Francisco location.

StyleForum x John Allan’s Razor Club

John Allan’s Razor Club in San Francisco hosted a terrific StyleForum meetup last Thursday. There was a great turnout among forum members, both old and new, and attendees were offered complimentary shoe shines, hair trims, and manicures. While I was there, I setup an appointment for Tuesday to try out John Allan’s full service and I will have my review of it this Wednesday.

A big thank you goes to Gus for helping to organize the event and Kevin Conroy, who not only hosted the event, but also raffled off a generous amount of free full services and men’s grooming products. It was the perfect way to get together with friends before the holidays start.

Men and their manicures. The team at John Allan's welcomed Style Forum members to an exclusive opening party last week where we got a preview of the FiDi salon.

A man visiting this club can walk away with a manicure, a shave, shoe shines and haircuts all under the $200. As a lady, and having paid the premium lady prices for salon services for the past decade, I am officially jealous.
