Our pal Isaac Fitzgerald (former Mission denizen, now an editor at Buzzfeed in NYC) recently took on the challenge of wearing makeup every day for a full workweek:
“Are you wearing makeup?” My regular bartender, Hugh, looks at me incredulously as he hands over a beer and a shot.
“Yeah, what do you think?” I throw back the whiskey.
“I think the whole world is more and more upside-down every damn day,” Hugh says. We shake hands, and Hugh turns away.
“Your eyelashes look flawless,” a waitress says as she drops her glassware on the bar mat.
Hugh turns back to me. “That’s what I meant to say,” he says. “Your eyelashes look flawless.” He smiles. Nobody at the bar mentions my makeup again, but people do look.

Menswear label Self Edge presents its 2015 winter lookbook entitled “Between The Lines” featuring Bobby Lee, Nick Youssef, Dean Delray, and Kevin Christy in the crevices of the legendary comedy house The Comedy Store. These four comics, with a combined 48 years in the industry, are the ones carrying the spirit of this art form. Self Edge captures them in their natural environment wearing their own clothing from Self Edge.

Lower Haight-based blog anadromy relates a tale:
I live in an historically African-American neighborhood. Unfortunately, the “historically” part of that phrase is becoming more and more the reality but it is still one of the last predominantly black neighborhoods in central San Francisco and to my chagrin I just walked by some motherfucker in an NYPD sweatshirt. It’s a nice day and I was in a really good mood coming back from the gym listening to cumbia music on my iPod and enjoying the sunshine so it didn’t register at first but as I passed this clueless dweeb I got pretty angry and stared at him with naked disapproval.
Maybe it was an NYPD Pizza sweatshirt?
