Living in The Haight is like being in a Grateful Dead show parking lot scene that never ends and never leaves. I made a bunch of stuff for GDF passing through this year's Haight Ashbury Street Fair (see me setting up for it with my friend Sasha by clicking here at 10:32), and while I sold most of it, I still have a few offerings for some Deadheads out there in the rest of the big world!
This one is a classic vintage denim vest covered in heady vibes. Someone got ahold of it before I found it at a secondhand shop on Haight Street. The other person cropped it and sewed on the flag appliqué and did the beading. I did the rest. Jerry Garcia reigns like the king of an alternative America on the back side, with a classic skeleton patch and signature Grateful Dead red roses cut from fine cotton quilting fabric. On the front side there is a variety of patches, including the lightbulb one which we had manufactured (made in the USA) from a 1971 underground comic cover. Everything is finished with a variety of machine and hand stitches to make this a durable af, long-lasting, hard partying garment. This is meant to be a family heirloom and a "Family" heirloom.
