Best Place to Get (Almost) Everything for Dad 

Cable Car Clothiers

It might be the arresting scent of leather and Brut that greets you at the door, but Cable Car Clothiers ("San Francisco's British goods store since 1939") simply screams Father's Day.* The place has a mountain of headwear to choose from — wool newsies, Borsalino fedoras, safari-ready pith helmets, and Greek fisherman caps — and various styles that, according to the clerk, "are also very fashionable for young ladies these days." If your dad isn't into lids, a minute's browsing is all it takes to come up with other options; there are piles of shaving brushes, wool fat soaps, scarves, vested suits, cuff links, walking sticks, and haberdashery galore. And though the hands-on appeal of the Downtown storefront is a treat, its sleek Web site can save you the trip. (*Father's Day is June 18.)
