About a month ago, I swung by Marine Layer‘s former loft space at 1932 Polk (at Pacific) for a happy hour. I drank wine, met some nice people, and played a game of shuffleboard; in other words, it was a wonderful start to my weekend. The t-shirt label has since moved on to a new home on Chestnut Street, leaving the long wooden table behind and me a bit dismayed. But now I’m pleased to hear that another dapper men’s apparel company has taken over the space.
Taylor Stitch produces custom and ready-to-wear men’s cotton “button-up” shirts. Using high-quality cotton; sustainable Corozo buttons; thoughtful details like the lack of superfluous pleats; and sophisticated stripes, plaids, and solids, TS makes a man look good. And the proof is in the pudding . . . local personas (likely friends) like Thrillist SF editor Nick Elliott, the Mariani bros of Scribe Winery, and Four Barrel coffeemaker Jeremy Tooker model the threads on the website, and they certainly all do look handsome. So good work and welcome to the neighborhood, Taylor Stitch. As for the shuffleboard table, TS has already extended an invitation to us all to swing by and play a game if we’re looking to kill time, and you know I don’t need any convincing.

Hiroshi Sugimoto was born in Tokyo in 1948. ‘Alhambra, San Francisco,’ (1992) is part of a long-standing and on-going project of photographing theatres. Sugimoto records the ambient light created by the cinema screen. The drama of the light effect is balanced by the ‘neutrality’ of the camera position, always directly facing the screen.

I saw this on Polk St yesterday and it cracked me up. It was at Holiday Cleaners on Polk between Washington and Jackson. Who waits till March to get their Santa suit cleaned???
Well Amy, my guess is that these Santacon drunkards might not all have their sh*t — or their laundry — together. I love that the Santa wig is being dry cleaned too : )
