Emmett Zeifman

We spotted this well-dressed New Yorker, Emmett Zeifman, in front of the Ferry Building. First thing that caught my eye…that jacket. Green is my favorite color so my eye is naturally drawn to anything in the Green family. Olive is pretty much at the top of my list of favorite green shades. I love the … Continue reading

 On a gorgeous Saturday morning, we headed to the Ferry Building Farmers Market to do some trig spotting. I told Gillian, “There’s one!” as I spotted those elbow patches peeking through the rear view of the crowd ahead of us. Then I saw the awesome herringbone wool shawl-neck cardigan that the elbow patches were attached … Continue reading

Markus Rene

We found Markus Rene, a native of Germany, looking for some cookware at Sur La Table at the Ferry Building’s Farmers Market. Once I got a look at the entire outfit, I knew I had to feature him on Trig & Polished. So we dragged him out of the store for a photo shoot. My … Continue reading

I found Hyo at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Market in Downtown San Francisco. He was waiting in line for his drink and I asked him if I could take a picture of him for T&P. There was definitely a language barrier issue and at first I didn’t think he knew what I … Continue reading

Steven St. Claire


Steven St. Claire – Accordionist & Balladeer We discovered Steven St. Claire (what an adorable name!) playing his accordion near the Powell cable car turnaround. There he was looking like someone back in time, all dressed up, accordion in his arms, playing his heart out. Such a trig and polished picture. The whole setup. A … Continue reading

This here is James. James works for Ted Baker (a British designer label, for those of you who might not know), so it’s already a requirement that he know a little something about fashion, no? He told me that the inspiration behind his getup were the child labor workers of the 1920’s. I totally see … Continue reading

Now that the Bay area is starting to feel the heat (it feels like this was the first hot day in a long time), I’m finding it a bit more challenging to find trig and polished gentleman. I guess I can’t blame them. Let’s face it, the more layers a man wears, the more he … Continue reading
