In theory, evoking the carefree hijinks of your school days would be great, but do you really want to squeeze back into PE shorts, or not turn in that paper on LBJ? Channel your youth stylishly, with Homeroom's holiday/fall collection
Based in the Mission, Homeroom's brashly crisp casual-wear recalls school days from elementary to university, both of which you recollect with equal haziness. This season's outerwear tends towards halting maturity, exemplified by the Perfect 10 hoodie in professorial gray and brown tweeds (w/ leather draw cords/gunmetal hardware); the moto-style Portman fleece that zips up like the Fonz's leather jacket; and a relaxed fit flannel w/ shoulder "storm" flaps, all done up in private-school plaid, the perfect outfit for seducing construction workers. New tees are louder, some school-specific (e.g., a roaring, lion-faced nun brandishing a ruler in "Class In Session"), and others merely nostalgic, like "Photo Copy", which bears a Polaroid of a hand, holding a Polaroid of a hand, holding a Polaroid of a cat wearing glasses! (Just kidding...it's holding a Polaroid of a hand)
To fete their freshness, Homeroom's hosting a top 40/electro/reggae party every Friday at Milk with free-til-11 PBR -- the beer that ultimately undermined The Great Sobriety.
