Where will you see these twins, these sisters doing it for themselves, these icons of 415 fashion?

“Marian and Vivian Brown (born 25 January 1927) are American identical twins and icons of San Francisco, known for the appearance in media with their signature identical bright snappy outfits with hats atop their meticulously coiffed hair”

Oh, and don’t forget about these guys – they’re the young upstarts on the bay area twins scene:

Identical twins! Hurray!

Now, if one buys a Seven-Up, the other one has to as well. If there’s only one Seven-Up at hand, well, then they’ll have to go without.

In that way, these fellows are just like Marian and Vivian Brown, the Famous Twins of the 415.

Except that dudes are Mirror Image Twins.

See? One’s a Southpaw and the other’s a righty. Hurray!

The Famous Brown Twins are Still on the Prowl in San Francisco

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Well here they are, Marian and Vivian (or Vivan and Marian) Brown, the San Francisco Twins. They’re still on patrol in Union Square after all these years.

This duo was recently spied on Stockton Street betwixt Geary and Post, right in front of the new Gucci store. The gigantic ad they’re walking in front of has seen better days, as you can tell by the swaths of white paint. 

Those darn graffiti artists are everywhere, it seems.
