Snap Judgment: Loin T-Shirt

Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: for a San Francisco t-shirt you won’t find in Fisherman’s Wharf, try the Loin shirt, $25, from San Francisco’s Red Choo Choo, maker of original screen print t-shirts for men, women and children.

On a casual Friday afternoon such as this one (mid-January, a nip in the air, white-gray sky overhead, just about the time the post-lunch doldrums set in), we’re feeling extra appreciative of the soft cotton, simple silhouette and no-brain-power-required versatility that only the best t-shirts can bring.

In that spirit, we went on a hunt for enviable t-shirts by local independent labels. Here are five for which we’d gladly trade the shirts on our backs.

From top: White shirt with mink stole and pearls, Free Gold Watch;  Busted tee, Nooworks; Code Green shirt, Binary Winter; Ohlone Chiefs Mission Dist. t-shirt, Gangs of San Francisco; Needs More Wolves tee, Headline Shirts.
