Unionmade was one of our top destinations while in San Francisco last month. Todd has been getting lots of good press for his new store, and we wanted to swing through a take a look for ourselves. Well – with a list of products like this, it’s hard to go wrong, but it’s even better than expected thanks to the flawless presentation. It’s a comfortable store, not too crowded nor too sparse, and Todd’s long history in retail really shows. I was most excited about getting my hands on elusive Armor-Lux products, but it was also great to see a wide range of SNS Herning knits, Steele Canvas baggage, and even some bags from our neighbor in Portland, Chester Wallace.

My plan for Saturday was to double-check Danner Japan inventory and attend the first anniversary party for the Filson flagship store in Portland. But an unexpected, out-of-town guest rerouted our shopping itinerary more towards women’s footwear and work wardrobes (not to be confused with workwear).
Fortunately, I was able to negotiate a quick stop at Winn Perry to say hello to Jordan and see his new Alden for Winn Perry boots (the oiled leather “little tanks”). Here’s a spot inventory of some of the (not necessarily archival) items I saw on Saturday.
Here’s a brief, June-in-January visual update from Winn Perry in Portland, Oregon. In addition to carrying exemplary brands like Quoddy, SNS-Herning and Obedient Sons, Winn Perry sells a number of unique, Portland-made items like Columbia Knit rugby shirts and this handmade cowhide satchel by “friend Steve”.
Here’s the Billykirk card case I purchased during my last visit:
I think SNS Herning should introduce a range of cycling inspired heritage knitwear. At minimum, they need to bring out an Elmer Collins model. The patterning and doubled-up cuffs of this sweater are stunning
Thanks to blogger Ready For The House for introducing me to Danish knitwear brand, SNS-Herning. As an addendum to last Friday’s post, I’m including SNS-Herning to my inventory of luxury knitwear I might buy if I needed to drop my life savings in twenty minutes or so.
