SF Indie Fashion News Roundup

I am now officially, meteorologically and categorically weather-spoiled by my eight years in San Francisco. The temp passes 80 degrees, my SoCal transplant friends rejoice, and I wilt, then whine about the return of 60 degree days and afternoon fog. Yeah, yeah, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. In other news….

Kweejibo Clothing is having an end of summer sale. Stop by the Haight Street location to dig through the box of $20 men’s shirts from this local menswear designer.
