If new brands were people (Lululemon, Uniqlo) then these guys (Gant, Original Penguin) would be pulling them aside talking about the good 'ol days; when men were men, when fighting a man cause he looked at you wrong was a typical Tuesday. And they looked better than you doing it. Further proof that your grandpa was cooler than you.
This post got me feeling like,
How confident would you feel wearing a good ol' Canadian Tuxedo (denim/denim)? Well, we're hoping the POTUS feels pretty damn good as he has the fate of the free world on his hands. Look at him rock the Power Suit version of our northern neighbors, plus the story here.
Our old window display for the EPIC 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, immortalized in tee form. Plus, a new color of our Warrior's fan favorite The City Shirt. Check 'em here
The Olympics got me feelin' pretty Patriotic. And although we didn't get the most Gold Medals, can you say... THE MOST BRONZE MEDALS! That's right AMERICA is #1... at coming in #3, suck it Norway. So proud that we just had to show you our new Made In USA polos from Velvet, enjoy Freedom in this cozy thrown on and don't be afraid to pop that collar like a true American.
Every Spring and Summer I have clothing companies on my phone asking me to order and to be "READY FOR THE SUMMER" and every year I tell them that June through August is a mix of heavy fog-rain and cold winds, that our Beaches are used to test industrial grade kites, and that I miss the sun like woah. Regardless, I order boardies and shorts that are just too cool to ignore. Maui and Sons have been around since the 80's making bold designs on quality boardies. Paperbacks have figured out that great cotton short feel that makes you want to go on a safari. Check 'em.
John Varvatos has designed just about everything, shoes, jackets, jeans, pants, suits, suit pants and most recently a freaking car (spoiler: it's all black). But first an foremost, at least for us, he designs great shirts and polos. Simple with just the right amount of detail to create that rock and roll sentiment he's known for.
This spring we carry a variety of wovens, and polos. Racked here:
I sell out of this every year. And somehow don't learn to just stock up and let it do it's thing:
Soft 100% Cotton
Relaxed modern fit

A couple of new additions to our online Tee Wall have been posted up. As part of our continuing series of Golden Gate Bridge inspired tee's we've added Clover Bridge, simple and clean witch is everything St. Patrick's Day isn't.
And keeping with our struggle to support both the A's and the Giants we've got the perfect shirt to embody this struggle: the 1989 World Series Tee.
Long ago (2 Days ago) we were in the midst of the Dark Times better known as sale season, a time of mismatched hangers and the only shirts you liked were XXXL. But that was then, and now with Spring merchandise shining like a weather appropriate beacon, we welcome Spring 2014. Damn it feels good...
Finally after weeks of constant sun and heat from who-knows-where, we get back to a familiar state. Foggy, grey skies that are comforting and plainly beautiful. Karl the Fog is making us proud.
