Valentine’s Day is approaching, and this year there is a new heartthrob filling the shoes of the “Gene Hiller Man”. Your favorite SF Socialite Examiner has been a part of many projects with the luxury clothier over the past five years. Known for a collection of the finest Italian brands, their self-titled magazine is a favorite to work on and is eagerly awaited by clientele. Some have even offered up their expansive estates and yachts for the backdrop of issues past. It is the reverse of the Victoria’s Secret catalogue for those on the circulation. Men love the content and styles catering to their tastes, and wives love the men who come alive from the pages at the store’s year-end celebration. We take one last look back at 2013 and the annual holiday party that brought together familiar faces of past cover and runway models.

The crowd always gets a bit boisterous as the evening concludes with the fashion show. Champagne on endless flow and a parade of chiseled men outfitted in the finest menswear might have something to do with it. Bryson Cooke fresh from the JFK to SFO runway made a special appearance just for the show. Arizona based Michael Stomatuk, the model who graced an unsurpassed four covers handed over the title to Matt Watts who will appear in the next issue. Past cover models Tristan Ludlow and Justin Thomas both returned to shine under the bright lights on the grand staircase, and show veteran Elan Valladares won over the crowd with his boyish charm. To finish things off, Bob Copani, with his first issue under his belt seasoned the night with a dashing amount of salt and pepper.

If you are still seeking something for the man in your life, you will be in excellent hands with the staff at Gene Hiller. You can also visit sister store Shoe Stories across the way and find something fancy to adorn the feet of your lady. San Francisco favorite and Tiburon resident Elisabeth Thieriot has been spotted wearing some of their finds. Her massive Lions Gate home was the location for the most recent Gene Hiller Magazine shoot.
