Wilkes Bashford is an upscale store for women and men in the Union Square Shopping District in San Francisco, California. The store was opened in 1966 by Bashford, its namesake, and has long catered to the elite, including former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.

The store was the first in the United States to carry Ermenegildo Zegna,[citation needed] which is still sold alongside other exclusive brands such as Brioni, Kiton, Oxxford Clothes and Oscar de la Renta. The store has a shoe department featuring Bontoni, John Lobb and Gravati.

The company has expanded in recent years to include a Palo Alto store.

Wilkes Bashford had satellite shops in Carmel, CA and Mill Valley, CA but closed them in 2009.

In November 2009 Mitchells/Richards/Marshs of Westport, CT acquired Wilkes Bashford.
