A lovely idea from local San Francisco blog The N-Judah Chronicles, the Muni Fail Whale, an homage to that icon of unreliability the Twitter Fail Whale.

Some San Francisco T-Shirts from Headline Shirts

This is genius, San Francisco really is cloud city :)

Nuff said if you know about biking in this town, luckily I ride a pretty fugly bike so no one really wants to steal it :)


Ahh, the joys of the 22 bus

The Gangs Of San Francisco – New T-Shirt Company

Just met these guys from The Gangs Of San Francisco at the Capsule Design Festival at Hayes Valley Park and they have now got their website up so you can buy them online.

All the shirts are printed with water based inks and are super soft, and as is becoming standard they are printed on American Apparel. The T-Shirt designs are all San Francisco themed and each has a nice story behind it. Unfortunately I can’t link to the specific designs as they have built the shop in a flash based pop up window

Homeroom Clothing Site Launches


Track Bike, water based ink, 6oz 100% cotton tee

Homeroom Clothing is a local San Francisco outfit started by Alval, a third generation tailor. He made himself a hoodie when he was in college and when wearing it on Haight St a woman from Complex magazine stopped him and asked him where he got it from, when he said it was his own creation, she asked what his clothing line was called, when he said he didn’t have one, she said he should, and the rest as they say is history. I have a couple of homeroom shirts and the shirts and designs are very well made, and more importantly original. I’ve known about these guys for a while but they didn’t have a full on ecommerce web site, now they do.

Ok, so the whole Italia thing is obviously a popular T-shirt after the world cup, but the reason for this photo is to honor a super awesome bar tender in San Francisco who gave me and my friend Paul a tonne of local information about where the cool places are to hang out, and i’m going to share that here :-) (i’m transcribing here notes on a guest check so I might have misinterpreted some stuff)
