San Francisco's best-kept secret for finding of-the-moment fashions without going into debt.. The Scene This stylish mini-chain has three locations, all carrying the same trendy clothes. The Castro outpost has a more extensive selection for the fellas, while the highly trafficked, three-level Haight Street shop is geared toward the edgy female shopper. The hip staff is friendly and psyched on the clothing they are selling. Insanely cheap sale racks with items for less than $15 are in the back of each store.
The Goods Affordable and fashionable day and clubwear for men and women. For women, 80 percent of the items look like BCBG knock-offs and sell for less than one-third the price. Must-haves include Cameron Diaz-esque Angel Jeans in pink, white and baby blue; and everyday, sexy T-shirts from Lani. For men, swanky collared shirts from Roar, baggy slacks from Spiewak, and campy slogan T-shirts with inscriptions like "Jerk" would do well in any closet.
