Cable Car Clothiers, named after the Cable Car line on Powell and O’Farrell Streets, was founded in 1946 in San Francisco by Charlie Pivnick. From 1970 onwards, it became known for its quarterly mail-order catalog, which eventually reached a circulation of 2 million and which helped to make the store a tourist destination. In 1972, Pivnick purchased and incorporated Robert Kirk, a San Francisco retailer founded in 1939 and also known for a focus on traditional, British-style clothing, thus allowing itself the motto “San Francisco’s British Goods Store Since 1939.” 

In late 2012, the new Cable Car Clothiers moved back to its roots on Sutter Street and opened a 1930s Barber Shop to complement its fine selection of clothing, hats, and caps.

Cable Car Clothiers carries everything in a man’s wardrobe – shirts, trousers, suits, sports coats, and so much more. For weekend play or work day and formal affairs, you will find what you need in your signature style.
