Men in San Francisco are upping the ante when it comes to style, thanks in part to male clothier Wingtip and its new 6,000-square-foot flagship store, which completely transforms the ground floor and basement of the city’s downtown historic Bank of Italy Building into a one-stop shop for modern guys.Its marble-clad hall now houses sweaters, shirts, pants and suits by bespoke and luxury designers like Oxxford Clothes, Dunhill, Barbour and Martin Dingman, while its bank vaults are home to vintage timepiece, tie-bar and cuff-link collections as well as a VIP fitting room. The store even boasts its own barbershop.
Coming in December, the brand’s most devoted clientele will also have a brand-new place to kick up their well-crafted heels. The Wingtip Club will be an urban refuge for both men and women and will span the historic building’s top two penthouse levels. A fresh take on the age-old private club, it will feature its own restaurant and bar, as well as a golf-simulating room, a rooftop terrace and an 1,800-bottle wine cellar. All monthly membership dues are fully redeemable for both online and in-store purchases, and luckily, nearly everything in the club will be for sale — from the in-house crystal stemware to the on-site billiards table.
