Woolrich x Danner “Old Growth” Capsule Collection

When it comes to making a fashion statement, statement pieces are probably your best bet in regard to turning heads. However, as statement pieces may get you noticed, they won’t necessarily make you known for impeccable style. 

First on our list of HFA style influences - Jimi Hendrix

Not only is Mr. Hendrix a legend, his style is inspiring a whole generation of millennials and born again hippies. 

His statement piece? Confidence. 

He kept his outfits fresh with color, and wild prints, but also wasn’t afraid to remix and rotate his favorite key pieces.  His confidence to wear whatever from head wraps, bands, and skinny pants proves that confidence is the ultimate accessory

Fall’s here so it’s the perfect excuse to beef up our wardrobes with dope gear, from coats to trill accessories. If you live in the SF bay area, you probably already know about the major Uniqlo grand opening that went down friday, October 5th.

If you’ve heard anything at all about the Japanese brand, Uniqlo, you’ve probably heard about their dope thermal heat technology. Their gear may fit a little snug on footballers, but their basics are pretty key for anyone looking for some fall wear to rock on the weekends. 

We didn’t fare the grand opening madness, but we were lucky enough to some reactions from those that got out of the crowds of hype alive. En route to San Francisco State University, on Friday night, two young men dressed in Supreme and The Hundreds, carried Uniqlo bags and when queried about the new store’s selection they both agreed - “Uniqlo’s dope.” “Their selection was ran through, but judging from what the big spenders were carrying out - their selection is perfect for anyone looking for basics to complement their trill shit.” When asked what trill shit was exactly, 20 year old D.J. smirked, “The major labels - The Hundreds, Supreme, BAPE, Pink Dolphin.”
