There aren't many places in the Mission where a man can shop for gear, unless that man is a pimp, a mariachi, or a house painter. For a store that doesn't announce your profession, try Density, opening today
Themed to feel like part of the City (sidewalk floors, goods arranged by "Downtown"/"Midtown"/"Uptown"), Density's clothes reflect the vintage and streetwear styles worn so proudly by Mission hipsters, and so accidentally by Mission crackheads.
Highlights include tees from SF's, emo-prep from, and authentic western button-downs from Panhandle Slim -- shirts that're typically only found at the bottom of thrift-store barrels, still smelling like the cowboys who died in them (cause: dogies).
Density also stocks a sweet selection of under-$80 denim, and're coming out with an in-house clothing line called Citystate -- possibly referring to a San Francisco secessionist movement, sure to be opposed by 4% of Americans
Though Mission-centric, Density's planning parties to celebrate the world's fashion capitals (Paris, Milan...Paris); and since the store's owner founded The Independent, expect top-notch DJs, musicians, and paint-splattered mariachis escorting dates they'd part with for, say, $50?
