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.
As soon as we saw the McIntosh stereo set-up, we knew we’d be in good hands.
Lynn and Sara were captivated by this industrial-scale Steele Canvas tote, appropriate for serious farmer’s market visits, child transport, or bank robberies.

Second that crush on Armor-Lux. I tried on their pea coat in mid-July and didn’t want to take it off despite the heat. I’ve been wearing it through a Minnesota winter and it still feels just like an embrace. I had no idea clothes could have that effect.
I certainly hope that Unionmade continues to carry Armor Lux clothing — I cannot believe that it is so hard (really impossible) to find in the U.S.! I have to load up every time I go to France.
