It's great to show hometown pride -- whether you're doing it for your parents' sake, to remember your glory days, or just because you want everyone to know you're from "The Palm Springs of Washington". Yakima for life, son!!! Finally giving you a reason to show some pride at your failure to live in Yakima, Cake Face.
Started by an Art Institute graduate who's inspired by things ranging from hip hop to skate/ snowboard culture, CF is a line of mostly boldly colored tees/ knits boasting NW pride via Seattle-centric graphics, the latest of which he's promoting with the help of Kuddie Fresh, a local producer who's worked the board on hits like Chris Brown's "Take My Time", which, if Rihanna had her way, would be two to three years, plus probation.
The geo-repping starts with a crewneck featuring a banner that reads "Top Left" and ends in a silhouette of Washington's jagged coast; a logo tee with "CF" layered over an evergreen forest; and one with the city skyline dominated by a Space Needle recast as a beam-emitting UFO that's called "sealiens", also what Lou Dobbs does when he goes to sleep at night.
CF also goes local with gear lamenting the late Seattle SuperSonics, including a bright yellow/green number reading "F*** The Thunder" over an upside-down skyline, and sweatshirts/ full-zip hoodies/ windbreakers emblazoned with an NBA Western Conference logo they've tweaked to read "Northwest Conference", which is also the name of a current events podcast Oliver North records while sitting in a hot tub with Kanye.
CF has also got your head cover... covered with beanies stitched with the Seattle skyline, plus the occasional not-NW inspired piece like a contrasting sleeved hoodie boasting a sketch of Eazy-E outlined with the letter "B" called (wait for it!) Be Eazy, something that typically follows the phrase "thinking of a city cooler than Yakima should".
