It's only fitting that Incanto's Chris Cosentino ― a chef known for marrowbone salad, brains risotto, and porchetta ― would be helping to design a pair of pants infused with the gluttonous spirit. As the first entry in its seven-part series of designs based around the Deadly Sins, local online-only clothing company Betabrand is issuing a partly Cosentino-conceived trouser the hue of a roasted chicken's burnished exterior. Along with whimsical, theme-appropriate graphics sewn into the waistband and lining, the pants have three buttons, allowing the serious eater room for gut expansion over the course of dinner.

We're intrigued, but wonder if a truly dedicated and frugal glutton might eschew good taste and just go with baggy sweats or those super-stretchy polyester short-shorts our old basketball coaches wore.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
