If you have the right sartorial orientation - Cable Car Clothiers. They have a made-to-measure program, I believe.

La Rosa on Haight St. Has fantastic (though slightly overpriced) vintage suits shirts and ties. The folks behind the counter are very knowlegable, and might be able to direct you to a good custom tailor.

Thomas Mahon at The English Cut makes visits to San Francisco from time to time though I don't believe he is taking new suit customers at this time. He's also referred Jonathan Quearney in the past (recently profiled here). I know Mr Mahon also sells bespoke shirts and I'm sure Mr Quearney has shirt references as well.
