Return of the Native

glug local tees!

Special Alert: Local tee spotted (again) in San Francisco.

Appearance: Simple, cotton T-shirts silk-screened with the obscurely iconic Sutro Tower and the word “local,” in white.

Habitats: The original red tees were first seen in 2004 on city playgrounds. They are unusual today, a phenom experts attribute to their inability to breed.

Vocal Identity: The shirts, though silent, speak volumes about hometown pride. Notably, only locals understand the message.

The New Generation: A new batch lands in Hayes Valley today. Sizes range from infant (6 to 12 months) to big kid (size 8) in seasonally appropriate coral pink (fitted cut) and pale blue (standard cut). As before, the tees will have a limited run.

Catch them before they blend right in.

Available at Fiddlesticks, 540 Hayes Street, between Laguna and Octavia Streets (415-565-0508 or shopfiddlesticks.com).
