SF's 13 Best Local Fashion Labels

Thanks SFist.com for selecting Blade + Blue as one of the best local fashion labels of San Francisco.

Here's a part of the article:

I tend to want my clothes pretty classic and tailored without being too over-consciously hip, and the heritage-inspired, on-trend styles of local menswear designer Blade + Blue fit the bill just perfectly. Interesting fabrics and simple designs make the label a go-to for my shirting needs, not to mention the fact that in being a small local label, I'm not bound to see too many others wearing the same stuff. Locally you can find their wares at Sui Generis in the Castro and Asmbly Hall on Fillmore, as well as a few other spots. And if you're curious about the story of the name, it comes from a shelter dog who was nicknamed Lonesome Blue because of how sad he was in the shelter, and renamed Blade once he was adopted by designer Peter Papas in 2011. The name, he says, is symbolic of his underdog company. — Jay Barmann
