Threadshow Highlights from Sunday

Well this Sunday was another Threadshow at the Galleria in SOMA, it was a good time and there was some new stuff there that I hadn’t seen previously. I was hanging with the editor of the San Francisco Thrillist who was also trying to catch up on local designers. I also met up with a reporter from San Francisco Magazine who was also interested in the T-shirt related goings on. I spent a couple of hours wondering around the show so I thought i’d post a few pics of some of the shirts I got while I was there.

this shirt will benefit
Well I always love Headlineshirts but i’m a bit biased since they started plying me with alcohol up at their fabulous partays. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the shirt is on the site yet.

This was a new brand to me called Apocathary, and I liked a couple of their shirts, unfortunately I can’t find a url on their web site, so anyone if anyone knows please post in the comments.

A new shirt from Artefacture clothing who brought us the Design Will Save The World shirt (which BTW is available for purchase in the SFMOMA) has this new shirt. The design is not the interesting thing in this case but the fabric which is a sustainable bamboo/organic cotton blend. Apparently often harsh chemicals are used to process bamboo into fabric which makes it difficult to do “organic” bamboo.

This is another new design from Artefacture.

turk + taylor
Used Car T from Turk + Taylor, love the use of appliques for the banner here. I’ve meant to write about these guys last time I met them at Threadshow, love their stuff. Not sure where you buy it though, apart from Threadshow.

rise up
Last but not least the very ambitious Rise Up Clothing that is a bone fide non-profit trying to make a difference (I apologize in advance for the web site as they have somewhat disembarked from some of the norms of web navigation :-)

Anyway, apart from the web site I like their designs which stand on their own as great designs, with the added benefit of a cause. I find most “cause” related cothing lets design take the back seat which is a shame if you think about the power of great design to communicate.


To top it off I found some Iron Maiden co-branded Vans, amazing :-)

    Cool, thanks Andy, yeah it was a good time and there was some new stuff there, i’m glad I just got a quick post up about it because sometimes it’s easy for stuff to get buried. I heard about a bunch of other shows coming up as well so i’m going to try and do more of these things locally.

  10. I believe that a foreclosure can have a significant effect on the borrower’s life. Mortgage foreclosures can have a 6 to a decade negative relation to a debtor’s credit report. Any borrower having applied for a mortgage or just about any loans for instance, knows that a worse credit rating is definitely, the more tricky it is for any decent mortgage. In addition, it may possibly affect any borrower’s chance to find a good place to let or hire, if that becomes the alternative houses solution. Interesting blog post.
