S.F. Street Fashion: Vintage in the Haight, the Sequel

Posted By on Fri, Apr 6, 2012 at 8:30 AM


The last time I wrote about street style in the Haight, I got some very angry comments from some not-so-peaceful hippies. Apparently, the '60s and '70s are still very much alive out there on the Internet somewhere, and they don't appreciate their iconic strip being overrun by consumerism.

But love it or hate it, Haight Street has become a shopping destination, not just for our ultra-hip citizens, but for our tourists as well. The very best vintage San Francisco has to offer is all sold on the several blocks between Amoeba and Buena Vista Park, and the street is packed every day with fashionable locals adding to their wardrobes.

This week, I spotted quite a few vintage looks on the famous free-love destination. Hopefully the fact that these environmentally conscious individuals bought their clothes secondhand will appeal to the tenets of Haight Street, and their chic-ness can be celebrated by everyone.

These two caught my eye with their sharp jackets. They were visiting S.F. from Sweden, and their simple, clean hair and makeup combined with their slightly formal style does have a distinctly European vibe.

  • 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.'"
