Looking Sharp


I’ve been interviewing a slew of local designers for a leetle story I’m putting together for Citysearch (stay tuned for that later this month). It’s given me the chance to talk to a number of designers for the first time – one was Alval of Homeroom Clothing. Along with sweet custom-tailored hoodies that have garnered the attention of hip-hop impresarios (Kanye has been known to sport ’em), the locally-made label also offers custom, hand-polished jewelry featuring edgy objects like meat cleavers, barbershop clippers and the scissors pictured below. They may be more strut than cut, but they’re still seriously sharp.

Like what you see? You can check out Homeroom’s offerings in person at Milk this Friday.
