You’d think a big retailer could just slot right in there and make money what with all the foot traffic at Fourth and Market, but I guess the particularities of doing business in the 415 make 800 Market a garden of bones.

“SAN FRANCISCO CLOTHING COMPANY REINVENTS THE ORIGINAL BLUE JEAN FOR YOUR SMARTPHONE: DELTA415
It’s Time to Change Your Pants: Alphyn Industries Launches the Delta415 Premium Jeans
(June – 2012) – Tech-fashion brand, Alphyn Industries has launched a new line of premium denim, which will revolutionize the way consumers interact with their smartphones. The Delta415 Premium Jeans are made of advanced materials designed to improve 21st century urban lifestyle. The stylishly intuitive smart jean is the latest product in the WEARCOM™ line. The WEARCOM™ technology gives the wearer the ability to use a smart device within the garment without physically holding it.
The patented Wearcom™ pocket (3 x 5 inch / 7.6 x 12.7cm) is made of durable polymer film to allow for complete interactivity with any touch screen device. A buttonhole above the genuine leather film edge opens into the front pocket for threading headphones/mic wire into right pant pocket. The zippered pocket cover provides a discrete look, secure and easy retrieval, and full usability of the smartphone while sitting down.
The Jeans are handmade in San Francisco, California, the heartland of Silicon Valley and the birthplace of blue jeans. They are made from 100% cotton denim and organic cotton pockets. The dedicated device pocket gives the wearer’s smartphone the safe functional home it deserves as the wearer navigates the urban stratosphere and makes things happen.
“We test and use the best materials because we know it is what our customers expect” said, Ben Raviv, CEO of Alphyn. Alphyn draws on the tradition of bringing military technologies to the public and redefining civilian culture.
Inspired by the fighter pilots’ G-suit, which has custom straps and pockets for a map clipboard and notes attached to their thigh during flight, Alphyn developed unique pocket configurations, which hold smart devices, and allows the wearer to interact with their device without the need to hold it. The goals are to make living safer, and to make everyday clothing stylish, protective, functional and user friendly, and merging advanced mobile gear with everyday clothing to accommodate our communication culture.
Industries is located in San Francisco, the birthplace of blue jeans and the silicone chip. Alphyn manufactures its clothes locally, reflecting the Bay Area’s culture of backyard Silicone Valley tech giants like Apple, Google, Zynga and eBay, combined with the rich fashion tradition of LEVIS, Dockers, GAP, and The North Face, who have reshaped classic American fashion.
Testing the best materials available, from space age silver coated, nylon cotton knits to denim woven on vintage looms; Alphyn uses the most advanced materials to produce its products. Alphyn bridges the gap between communication, safety, and fashion, and to offer its customers timeless design and style with avant-garde technologies and quality American craftsmanship.

Remember all the way back to 2010, when our corporate overlords at Levi’s were crowing about having crowned their first-ever “Levi’s Girl,” Meghan Smith? She was all:
“I’m violently excited to begin my new adventure in San Francisco.”
The energetic pixie bagged a paid internship, in the 415, in this day and age – can you believe it? Check it:

Using its crowdsourcing Facebook app, users will be able to submit videos documenting why they should be chosen as the new face and voice for Levi’s® women in the digital space.

More after the jump.
(OMG, one of the interns here just found out that they’re all supposed to be getting paid, under da federal law. It’s a disaster, they’re having a meeting in the walk-in, electing a “shop steward” or whatever. They’re saying how they’re supposed to get at least $9.79 per, plus Healthy San Francisco. I thought we had a deal man, you know, where I get all the glory and they get the false praise. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted but now it’s gone.)
And you know who is to blame, our corporate overlords at Levi’s, what with their crowing about crowning their first-ever “Levi’s Girl,” Meghan Smith. She’s all:
“I’m violently excited to begin my new adventure in San Francisco.”
