Urbanist took this week to go on a holiday hunt, scouring urban San Diego for special gifts to keep you shopping locally, away from the painfully crowded malls and chains. There are so many cool gifts, we’re breaking the guide into three editions: Home, Apparel and Food + Drink.

We present to you the Apparel Edition (Part 2) of the 2011 Urbanist Holiday Gift Guide, featuring cool accessories from some of our favorite local shops. It’s the companion to our Home and upcoming Food + Drink editions. We loved so many things and couldn’t possibly photograph everything, so it’s up to you to hit the spots with the stuff you like and see what else they’ve got!
