Graffiti Beach Boutique in South Park
A local favorite, Graffiti Beach Boutique is great for any occasion. Graffiti stands apart from other boutiques in that the prices aren’t so high that it will hurt your wallet as you hand over your card. This fun boutique has great gifts for men and more, with artsy decor like skateboards and art from local artists. The menswear echoes the same vibe as the womenswear, and you’ll find everything from fitted plaid flannels to funny, Cali-centric graphic tees. Graffiti Beach is definitely worth a stop and a shop when you're in the neighborhood—especially during the holidays. In addition to gifts and clothes for men, they've got cute gift wrap, pet gifts, and knick-knacks that you'll get a kick out of.
Boutique de Marcus in the Gaslamp
If you want perfect service, the highest quality clothing, and a fantastic shopping experience, go no further then Boutique De Marcus. The owner commissions his own designs and has them produced in Turkey. Excellent quality and some very unusual designs: two-layer collars, reversible cuffs, scallop fronts, etc. The sports coats are totally wild—basically think Versace-inspired, or Elvis; something unique. If you want to stand out at the next party, here's your chance. If you want creative dress shirts or sports coats, this is the place to go. Don't forget to check out the salon for all your hair care needs as well. Get down there and check it out and find your new look.

Le Chauvinist in La Jolla
An upscale consignment store? It really does exist, and where else would you find it than the old money capitol of San Diego. Blue-collar buddies, this is probably the best spot to look debonair without having to sell a kidney on the black market. There's everything you could imagine, but for half the price. It's still expensive, but for the brands they have in stock, you'll be pleasantly surprised how affordable some of it can be. If you wouldn’t mind wearing some millionaire's hand-me-downs, definitely come and take a look around.
