Meet The New SF Businessman: BART Hits Peak Hipster with This Camouflage Suit – A HARMLESS FORM OF AGGRESSIONMonday, August 10th, 2015
A great capture from Erin Sherbert:
Cf. Conversations with Tom Wolfe by Dorothy McInnis Scura:
“Q. First I must ask you: why do you affect those crazy white suits?
A. In 1962, I was in a tailor shop and had a conventional summer suit made from some white silk tweed that impressed me. But the suit was too hot for the summer. Then I began wearing it in December. People became annoyed by the sight of a white suit in winter. (Those were innocent times in 1962.) Soon I discovered I had this marvelous, harmless form of aggression going for me. So I branched out into white suits with double-vested weskits and rows of white-covered buttons. Getting dressed in the morning was suddenly fun.”

This was the promise, seven long years ago:
Oh what a day! What a lovely day:
This is, by far, the best use of MUNI’s Snake Logo ever.
Order now, and you’ll be looking Chic in no time.
What would it be like if buses in San Francisco were Catbuses…. They’d be called “MEWNI’s”!
This shirt design is inspired by the CATBUS from Hayao Miyazaki’s film “My Neighbor Totoro” and San Francisco bus “MUNI”.
Women size T-Shirts are printed on Bella brand shirts. Please be advised that it is recommended that you select a size larger than you’re regular size to ensure a more comfortable fit.”
*Saying, “Enjoy the candy” while handing over the gun? Good one, MUNI!

Is a genuine orange shirt from the California Department of Corrections a prestige item on the Streets of San Francisco?
Yes it is:
Here it is, a shot via c_nilsen, showing fringe upon fringe:
The yellow border, now reproduced as a part of the flag was originally intended to be a gold fringe, but mistakenly became incorporated into the design. When used indoors, as is the custom, a gold fringe is added to what was originally intended to be the fringe.
Now say what you will about the current version of our phoenix flag, regardless of that, I’ll concede that this fringe upon fringe look, used for ceremonies mostly, looks stupid.
So, there. Room for common ground with the pay-us-money-to-follow-this-year’s-fashion designerly community.
Up next? #2 That stupid-looking cartoon bird…
“Undergrounding” – Once Again, the Rich and Connected Want to Impose Their Aesthetic Values and Have the Little People Pay For ItWednesday, May 27th, 2015
The problem with London Breed attending house parties to raise money for herself is that it warps her perspective. On the subject of 9th Avenue:
“It’s one of the major gateways to Golden Gate Park and it just looks so horrible”
And which part looks horrible? The infrastructure, supposedly.
To me, it looks beautiful:
Isn’t it funny how real estate interests out there deny how bad the fog is, and the wind, always with the swirling wind, but, somehow, it’s your internet and the N Judah overhead wires what’s really holding them back?
Anyway, to the rich people who want to impose their aesthetics on the rest of us, why don’t you raise the money to pay for “undergrounding” yourselves and then pay into a fund to cover the future additional costs of “undergrounding?”
