Men’s Wearhouse Celebrates Grand Opening in San Francisco with Shortstop Brandon Crawford
San Francisco, California — June 29, 2011 — Men’s Wearhouse proudly announces the grand opening of its newest San Francisco location downtown in the historic Humbolt Bank Building at 785 Market Street.
This July Fourth, rookie Brandon Crawford will be on site along with the usual assortment of stylish suits, name brand formalwear and casualwear selections that Men’s Wearhouse is known for to celebrate its grand opening and the birthday of our nation. In addition to hosting San Francisco baseball’s newest shortstop for a meet-and-greet and autograph signing, Men’s Wearhouse will offer fifty percent off the regular price of all items (excluding shoes) the entire day.
“With corporate headquarters in the Bay Area, Men’s Wearhouse has been a long-standing fan of our baseball teams and we couldn’t be happier to have Brandon Crawford join us for the opening, “said Matt Stringer, SVP Marketing and Creative Services, of Men’s Wearhouse. “Crawford is a great example of a young guy that knows how to dress well and present himself. The partnering with Men’s Wearhouse is a perfect fit for Crawford, who embodies the idea of dressing for success.”
The grand opening deal is twice as sweet for existing customers in the San Francisco area who received exclusive invitations to the store for the upcoming weekend to enjoy refreshments and complimentary personal consultations.
The new San Francisco location features a great selection of Big & Tall styles and top-tier designers like Calvin Klein, Joseph Abboud, and Kenneth Cole. The new location is a full-service Men’s Wearhouse, offering tuxedo rental as well as a vast retail selection.
In addition to offering the formalwear and suit styles for which the brand is known, the new location features an ample casualwear selection that includes everything from athletic wear and comfortable tees to sport coats and designer denim. During the Grand Opening event, there will also be a special selection of vintage baseball shirts and hats for purchase.
The newest Men’s Wearhouse location opened for business June 12, 2011. San Franciscans will like the way they look, we guarantee it!

Now, you’d think that San Francisco would have a straight-outta-Quezon City Jollibee Chicken & Burgers fast foodery but you’d be wrong. We used to have one down near that whole Lapu Lapu, Mabini, Bonifacio, Rizal alley maze situation in the SoMA, but it’s gone. Our sole JB is all gone.
So what’s the point of getting this card to give away for Christmas if all you’re doing is forcing the recipient to journey to another county or state to cash it in?
