We'll always have love for the LBD (come on). But right now, we're more in a LSD state of mind. That would be Last Summer Days, a just-dropped graphic-tee collection from NSWest Co. It's a cool, laid-back tribute to the dog days of summer in San Francisco. For your viewing and wearing pleasure, here's an exclusive first peek at the SF-centric tees for guys and girls.
Taking inspiration from the Golden Gate Bridge and the bison of Golden Gate Park along with the Grateful Dead and iconic Victorians, the new tees hiply transmit the hometown love— a hallmark of the Oakland-based label. Additionally, all shirts (in the $30-ish range) are designed by locals and printed in San Francisco.
Once you've scouted out your favorites in the gallery above, shop online, where 10 percent of proceeds go to community-based organizations. Prefer to try on in person? Head to Convert Man in Hayes Valley or Picnic on Polk (both listed in our 38 Best Indie Boutiques). East Bay peeps, check out NSWest's new pop-up at the Oaklandish downtown space, 1444 Broadway in Oakland.
