Looked into the clothing company itself, definitely different to say the least. Anyone know the background here? But I'll be checking out the comp because proceeds go to a good cause.
I know the background. ;)

If you dig any of the bands and wanna hear more, click on info for their track to find links to more of their shit. Spread the word!

So what's your story? Inspiration behind the designs and stuff? I'm interested!
Well at first it was influenced pretty equally by skating culture and hardcore and punk scenes in the SF bay area and was sort of a reaction to the preppy/bro-y sort of fashion I saw at my university. Now I'd say it's influenced by punk values, local scenes, and indie aesthetic. I originally started the company because a potential employer for a catering job asked me to take my nose ring out and I was like pffft I'll do my own thang.

If you wanna hear a specific example, the deerhead shirt came about from seeing a Balance and Composure shirt I really liked (I think it had a fox head on it) and I basically tried to figure out what elements I liked about it and see how I could make that my own.

Thanks for being curious--I take it as a pretty big compliment. Spread the word on the comp if you dig it!
