Five and Diamond is a remarkable fashion outpost in San Francisco. If you are not from the Bay Area and their web site is giving you any issues, you can give them a ring and they will be super nice about helping you. The Five and Diamond have announced that they will have a new web site soon, but, right now, you can see the remarkable array of high end alt clothing they carry.
Where else could you buy a last minute headdress for a special event? Or (let’s be realistic about your everyday needs) any given Saturday night? I love the fact that Five and Diamond does not just carry headdresses, but carries them in an assortment of styles and price ranges and by a who’s who of alternative designers.
Five and Diamond has in-house private label designs as well. Their menswear is especially dark and cool-looking. Across the board actually, it is nice to see that they have delicious outfits for both men and women. The men’s skews a bit more gothic than the women’s, but both offer black leather, black flowing lines, and black distressed patterns on different designs.
Five and Diamond is the sort of one-stop shop for hard-to-find cool clothing that is . . . well, hard-to-find. So often, when I see a magazine editorial of amazing gothic clothing, I look up the designer’s web site and they are not really in the business of selling clothes. Being able to get the customer service and variety that a store can offer, while having it stocked with all the designers I’ve drooled over in magazines . . . well, that is a treat!
