Last night, Hlaska, a hip leather accessories company based in San Francisco, opened the doors to their first store. On Fillmore Street in the Pacific Heights neighborhood, the 2,000 square foot store showcases their entire line of Men’s and Women’s leather accessories, and a new line of men’s ties (soon to be on our site!).
On The Fly has been proud to carry Hlaska’s men’s products since the beginning. The company’s hip wallets were unique in a market that mostly features the same solid colored leather wallets that have been made for hundreds of years. And as we all know, now is not the time for "more of the same". Hlaska’s products were sold in over 100 stores nationwide until company founder, Anthony Mazzei decided to reboot the company by adding a women’s line, making both lines more upscale, and selling the products through just 3 online outlets (hlaska.com, onthefly.com, and tobi.com). The few, the proud, the chosen indeed.
A capacity crowd attended, nibbling on appetizers and drinking wine & beer (alas, I was unable to get a Manhattan until I visited nearby Florio). Congratulations to Hlaska on their newest step, and we look forward to representing their products across town in our soon-to-open store in the Financial District.
