Hi SuFu â€“
We are Standard & Strange, based in Oakland, CA. We're a denim-centric menswear shop. You can find us right at 5010 Telegraph Ave, next door to Pizzaiolo.
Our brand list is extensive, to say the least, but here's the highlights:
Japan Blue Jeans
Circle of Friends
Naked & Famous
We buy brands that we believe in, without compromise. Initially, it was only Made In USA goods, but as we traveled and were introduced to more and more great brands, we added Canada, Japan, Europe, and the UK to our roster.
We're constantly expanding our denim selection with the goal of being able to fit just about anyone to a great pair of jeans, whether it's N&F weird guys in stretch selvedge denim, or 18oz Momotaro Natural Tapers. We take the same approach to shirts, jackets, boots, and everything else â€“ we try to have fits that work for just about anyone.
About our name â€“ one of my areas of interest has always been urban development, planning, and use, and one of the standout books in that area is â€œThe Death and Life of Great American Citiesâ€ by Jane Jacobs.
There's a passage that's stuck with me over the years:
"Cities, however, are the natural homes of supermarkets and standard movie houses plus delicatessens, Viennese bakeries, foreign groceries, art movies, and so on, all of which can be found co-existing, the standard with the strange, the large with the small." (bold emphasis mine).
When we found our original space â€“ in Temescal Alley â€“ it was on it's 3rd rebirth â€“ originally horse stables, the store fronts in the alley had long been used as cheap storage lockers. When we built out the space we were tearing out boards that been there for 100+ years.
Our goal â€“ whether it's denim, boots, or shirts â€“ is to make sure every person coming through our door gets what they want, even if it's just a shot of whiskey and a warm welcome.
The best place to catch us online outside of here is Instagram, and via our email list.

I noticed this benefit Takayuki Echigoya of Bowery Blue Makers started on GoFundMe to help save Kiyama Denim Mill in Okayama. The mill sustained flood waters of over four feet submerging the machines for days. As we all surely know these antique shuttle looms are assembled from both metal and wood including the shuttles. When running Kiyama's mill uses 1000 shuttles, 200 have been donated from other mills while the others will undergo the painstaking process of being hand repaired by a 78 year-old master craftsman. Needless to say, the situation is certainly worthy of the attention of the greater denim community.
Save Kiyama Denim Mill
Having survived numerous hurricanes having lived in Florida most of my life I personally understand the loss and the pain of trying to rebuild. I thought I'd bring it to the attention of everyone here who is concerned.
