The San Francisco F-Line

Many people that visit San Francisco for the first time often ride the historic cable cars that run along Powell and California St.  These cable cars have become iconic in the eyes of tourists everywhere.  However, unbeknownst to some, there is another historic street car that roams the streets of San Francisco: the F-Line

Unlike the other train lines that run in city, the F-Line operates as a heritage street car service.  In 1982, San Francisco had to shut down its cable car service to allow for a major restoration.  Needing another tourist attraction during this time, the city started the San Francisco Historic Trolley Festival.  Vintage street cars from around the world were brought to the city where they traveled from the Transbay Terminal to the Castro.  The festival proved to be so successful, that the city decided to adopt the vintage street cars and make the F-Line a permanent route.

This past Wednesday, I was fortunate enough to attend a fantastic party hosted by The Bold Italic that took place on one of the F-Line’s historic Peter Witt street cars from Milan, Italy.  We traveled from the Castro through downtown and then across the Embarcadero and Fisherman’s Wharf, all while listening to live jazz music, dining on Mediterranean food, and drinking whiskey punch.

If you’re ever visit San Francisco and don’t feel like waiting in line for the cable cars, I’d recommend a small trip on the F-line.  Not only does riding one feel like stepping back in time, but if you board at Castro and get off at Fisherman’s Wharf, you’l also be able to see over a hundred years of San Francisco history.

Asians in Barbours

dieworkwear:

My friend Cooper has been intermittently posting pictures of Asians in Barbours the last few months. Which reminded me - Barbour jackets are great. Their classics, the Bedale and Beaufort, can be worn with khakis, jeans, odd wool trousers, and even casual country suits. I presume Cooper took these photos from Japanese magazines such as Leon and Mens’ Ex. The last photo, which is of the most important Asian of them all, is something I added myself. 

With all the new outerwear designs that come out every season, it’s good to be reminded: the term “classic” isn’t always just a marketing trick. Real classics exist, and they’re quite good. Go get yourself a Bedale or Beaufort if you haven’t already.
