ABOUT US

Welcome to BUTTON DOWN. San Francisco’s renowned luxury clothing and gift shop offering some of the world's finest brands.   

-

In June of 2020, after 40 successful years, BUTTON DOWN founder Michael Sabino decided the time was right to step away from the business and transferred ownership to husband duo Ken Griffin and Dan Keenan, long time friends of Michael.  Ken and Michael have worked in the fashion industry as colleagues for many years, so Michael felt this was a natural fit to see his business into the future.

-

BUTTON DOWN'S classic and enduring elegance is reflected in some of the most beautiful clothing and accessories found on the West Coast. It is one of the reasons BUTTON DOWN is considered a jewel of the Upper Sacramento Street retail area and a must visit when shopping in the elegant Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.

-

-Ken and Dan's plan going forward is simply to modernize the company. BUTTON DOWN now has an online store, buttondownsf.com; digital inventory and checkout system; enhanced in-store customer experience; expanded clothing options for men and women; and now even an in-house barbershop called JAMES. @ BUTTON DOWN.

-

In 2021, BUTTON DOWN was declared by the City of San Francisco to be an SF Legacy Business, recognizing BUTTON DOWN's long-standing contributions to the community.  We're proud to be included in this group of historic businesses which help make our city so great.

We're excited to share these improvements with you and look forward to seeing you at BUTTON DOWN soon!
