Ghurka has opened a new store at 245 Post Street in San Francisco. The 1,000 square foot space features attractive displays of their fine leather bags and accessories.
Marley Hodgson founded Ghurka in 1975. Soon his bags and accessories became popular for offering a distinctive masculine look and could be found at the finest men’s specialty stores across the country.
In the 90’s the traditional Ghurka look fell a bit out of fashion when black ballistic nylon became all the rage. The company was sold in 2003 and the owners moved it in the direction of a fashion accessory company with production offshore. Ghurka now has all-new owners who have brought manufacturing back to the USA and are building on the brands traditional designs and legacy.
Many new designs are now available and a furniture line will debut sometime next year. For more information on Ghurka and it’s history visit their website.
So with winter temperatures already here it’s safe to layer up and pack on the leather. And what better way to stay warm and look good as hell then in some Belstaff. This collection made me want leather pants like yesterday. The military silhouettes are amazing, clean sharp lines are what I like! I’m obsessed with the belting. The cable knit sweater with (some shade of copper) pants, are sick, I want them. And of course I want that dark teal leather pea coat (it’s in my nature). Also that maroon suit is pretty awesome too, and I would totally wear them with those gloves, no joke full on right off the runway hashtag luxury, yes I just did that. Ok and that v-neck sweater I mean damn can you spell REBEL. I feel like at any point during the season if it hits below 60 it’s completely justified to throw on any of these looks. It’s time to hit up Barneys. I’ll see you all there.
