Nope, not the makeup store. The name stands for Modern Appealing Clothing, and that about sums up what’s sold here. The owners source attractive and (sometimes) unusual pieces from around the world—Belgium’s Dries Van Noten, Tokyo’s Minä Perhonen, and Spain’s Sybilla, to name a few—and then help customers arrange them into drop-dead gorgeous outfits. And happily, prices are slightly kinder at MAC than they are in the other trendy Hayes Valley shops. Open Monday through Saturday 11am to 7pm and Sunday noon to 6pm in Hayes Valley. Also at 1003 Minnesota St. (at 22nd St.). Open Monday through Saturday 11am–7pm and Sunday noon to 6pm.
