. Here's my list (in no particular order). Alas, some of these gents aren't in the vintage menswear business anymore: -- Jon Lundberg (Lundberg Haberdashery, Kensington, CA) -- Destroyed by fire in 2000. A legendary and expensive selection of vintage men's suits, especially belted backs. http://www.libertyship.com/lundberg/lundberg_cctimes.htm -- Art and Janene Fawcett (Vintage Silhouettes, Crockett, CA) -- What a wonderful shop theirs was! http://www.sfchroniclemarketplace.c.../01/30/CC7267.DTL&hw=victorians&sn=072&sc=365 -- Benjamin McGinty (McGinty's Vintage Underground, Altadena, CA) -- My vintage suit guru. Retired from the business (for now). http://books.google.com/books?id=R1...vvWsCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1 -- Ardis Taylor (Vintage Apparel by Ardis, Oakland, CA) -- Incredible suits, year after year! http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/05/31/LVDA17P46B.DTL -- Roberto Isola (Daly City, CA) -- A longtime fixture of the Bay Area's vintage scene, Roberto describes his mission in a tongue-in-cheek way: "enforcing men's fashion." More than a few NoCal Fedora Loungers swear by his excellent suits and advice. .
