Staying underground is a questionable strategy for any retail outfit, unless of course they're selling decoratively engraved war hammers to dwarfs. For a local haberdasher trying to stay out of the light: EvilGoods
A limited-but-quality line of biker-inspired workwear all handmade in CA, EvilGoods clearly accomplishes its repeated boast of being "underground" (it's only available for order off its blog and at Enc's UNIV), and is the pet project of a local who's both the creative director at C1RCA and co-founder of Loser Machine, an operation which finally settles the fiery debate over where DJ Quails came from. For high-end heat, they're hawking the black "Santa Fe" work pant with an orange/red/yellow-striped snap wallet pocket on the seat, as well as heavy duty "Parlor" flannels in black or turquoise, and a crew fleece (with "Goods" printed upside-down) dubbed the "EG-U" -- also an institution of higher learning where even the engineering frat is yolked. More graphic coverings include the "Feather" hoodie backed with a trifecta of arrows, and tees like the appropriately titled "Underground" with suited hands shaking over a deal, the "Native" with "EG" sprouting headdress feathers, and "Hardly Davidson" with a winged bike tire and the slogan "chop 'em all, never stock", presumably a nod the Mongol's famed, vegetable-heavy soups
For your extremities, they've got the minimalist "Brooklands" beanie in black or grey, and the light leather "Thunderbird" glove with a heavy strap -- also the perfect weapon for making sure those outgunned dwarfs stay 6ft under.
