If you made it out to the Mission Holiday Block Party this past weekend, you might have spotted a long and narrow, white walled clothing shop blasting electronic music and pouring wine for everyone who walked in to door. That sounds like every store in the Mission, you say? Well, I'm talking specifically about HANGR 16, the new clothing pop-up shop on 16th directly across from Monk's Kettle, which sells shirts, hoodies, ties, dresses and other fashionable items from various Mission designers. They tell me the name HANGR comes from the fact the place looks like an aircraft hangar and clothes are hung on hangers. Apparently they couldn't decide between hangar or hanger, so they just added a dash of web 2.0, dropped the vowel and, voila, HANGR 16.
The most important thing about this clothing pop-up is you can score some rad t-shirts there, such as the beauty that depicts a drunk DPT parking officer crashing into a meter as a pigeon smoking a cigarette and wearing a fedora looks on. Yeah, let that all soak in.
3128 16th Street. Open now until December 23rd.
