On a street packed with vintage-clothing shops, this is one of the more upscale options. Since 1978, it has featured a selection of high-quality, dry-cleaned secondhand goods. Formal suits and dresses are its specialty, but you'll also find sport coats, slacks, and shoes. The more moderately priced sister store, Held Over, is located at 1543 Haight St., near Ashbury (tel. 415/864-0818); and their discount store, Clothes Contact, is located at 473 Valencia St., at 16th St. (tel. 415/621-3212).
