Winter looks: Welcome Stranger is warm on the range


For this week's Winter Looks issue, we rounded up some of the Bay's hautest dressers to show us how to step out right when the weather's wrong

We've been big fans of Hayes Valley boutique Welcome Stranger for awhile now. There's something crisp, yet real comfortable about the shop's selection of flannels, jeans, and leather bags -- this is the place for San Francisco's urban cowboys. Store manager Justin Hagar was good enough to pose for us in the store's winter best.

"The jacket makes sense for rainy weather because it's waxed," he told us at the Guardian cover shoot. Well-dressed and smart? 

Welcome Stranger “Waxed Safari Jacket,” Life After Denim “Lineage Crew” sweater in Flax/Midnight, Gant “New Haven Chambray Button Down Shirt” in Chambray, General Assembly “Original Pant” in Navy (all available at Welcome Stranger)
