Hi, I’m Victor Verdugo
and I’m a writer from the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m a very visual person so I love traveling to beautiful destinations in or out of the city. I’m also a very social person so I’m always craving social interaction. I love sharing experiences and intimate moments with the most important people in my life, so I’m always inviting my friends to try out new things or places with me.
Walk us through your ideal San Francisco day from start to finish.
How would you characterize the San Francisco menswear scene and how has it shaped your approach to personal style?
How has living in a city taught you to celebrate personal style?
What is one question you wish people asked you more often?
What is one thing you always find yourself discussing amongst fellow shop-owners and San Francisco small business owners?
The Style Line was built on the premise of discovery, exploration and transit. With this in mind, if what is your “the style line” in your wardrobe?
