Our Story


A purveyor of fine clothing for gentlemen, The HOUND is located on the ground level of the
century-old historic, glass-front Hallidie Building in the heart of San Franciscoís
Financial District. Renowned for our exceptional customer service and large inventory of
classically styled business clothing, accessories and sportswear, we have for almost fifty
years dressed the professional man. Longtime and devoted patrons of The HOUND include
executives of Bay Area-based firms such as VISA, Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab, as well as
top professionals of major national and international companies.

The HOUND has established shop-in-shop concepts for luxury brands Robert Talbott, Peter
Millar and Viyella. We are a major retailer for Barbour Countrywear, boasting America's
largest section of men's (and women's too) outerwear, hand-tailored clothing manufacturer
Samuelsohn, Jack Victor, made-in-America makers of Gitman Bros. shirts and Bills Khakis
classic sportswear.

We carry more than just men's suits for the San Francisco, CA area!

The HOUND is a full-service store, including not only clothing and accessories, but also an
independent barber, manicure and shoe-shine service. And for those whose physiques require
a specialized fit, or whose preferences in clothing styles or materials are beyond what the
store stocks, we also have an outstanding Custom Tailoring department. With the emphasis on
tailored clothing and dress shirts, our Custom department offers a large range of fabrics
and styles for suits, sportcoats and trousers for formal, business or casual wear. In
addition, custom-made dress shirts and sportshirts can be ordered with similarly extensive
options. With our expertise in measuring and fitting, and utmost attention to the customer,
one can be assured of achieving the right look and the proper fit.
