About Us

Opened in the Fall of 2005, The Archive is a one of a kind boutique for men previously located in the Union Square and the Financial District in San Francisco.

During COVID19, we had to close our downtown store and have moved to a new location at: 

5911 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, 94121

For a city known for its progressive thinking, advanced technology, creative food culture, and diverse communities. A glaring lack of fashion options were apparent. We are here to fill that void by offering progressive, and emerging designer brands that are both Avant Garde and wearable. The designers we feature at The Archive are carefully curated and specialize in artisan construction, experimental techniques and source the finest quality fabrics. This style is often referred to as “dark brands” or “black fashion” for using predominantly dark and monochromatic color ways. We currently stock about twenty different labels, masculine, unisex, and androgynous styles, and yes women shop here for themselves as well!  Most of our brands are imported from Europe and Japan.

We invite you to stop in and check out what we have to offer and hope you will enjoy an unparalleled shopping experience in our humble little boutique.
