about_alMAIN

 

A San Francisco native, Al Ribaya has been clothing the City by the Bay for the past three decades. Opening his first shop at the age of 18 — Taming of the Shoe in the city’s Mission District — Al quickly became a household name in the footwear industry. Over the years he branched out into vintage clothing, custom, hand-made shoes, and most recently, custom tailored clothing. Now situated in the heart of North Beach, Al’s Attire has gained a cult-like following amongst our clientele, who range from international visitors to neighborhood fixtures, from local San Franciscans to world-renowned artists the likes of Carlos Santana, Win Butler, Herbie Hancock, Jeremy Fish, and more.
