Handsome Oxford is a small second-hand store selling exclusively American-made vintage clothing and accessories in the Tenderloin neighborhood. The New York Times describes the experience of shopping at Handsome Oxford best, explaining: ‘Stepping into Handsome Oxford is like entering a closet-size time machine packed with gently used, mostly pre-1970s American-made men’s work wear and casual clothing. You’ll find wool Pendletons, college sweatshirts, a Levi’s western shirt with pearlescent snap buttons and more, all of it amid décor that runs to old bottles of false teeth adhesive, galvanized metal milk cans, and a hodgepodge of other junk shop finds.’ The shop also has a partnering burger joint in Japan.
