Our buddy, the LA based cabin-dewler Mel Kadel, has a brand new tee, The Orbital, out through Upper Playground - $24

Is there a story, special message, or feeling your are trying to convey with your tee designs?
I just wanted to make this shirt colorful, pretty, and weird. Something that guys and girls could both get into. ~continue reading




U.P. SF Giants Hats
    Tuesday, 14 August 2012 /// Written by Trippe

So the SF Giants and the Dodgers are tied for 1st place in the West as of today after a rough 14-0 loss to the Washington Nationals. The rest of August and September are going to be huge for the Giants as they race for the post season and a possible repeat of 2010?!

Personally prefer the classic on field hat, but if you want some more flavor to show your SF pride/ Giant's support, Upper Playground as some interesting color ways... Oh, and speaking of U.P., check out this rad summer/ junk food tee.

Show your SF Giant's pride

KC Ortiz Upper Playground Tees
    Thursday, 24 June 2010 /// Written by Van

Our friends @UP release some new tees as well as host a Facebook design contest w/ a chance at winning a Jason Jagel print - KC Ortiz is one of the most engaging photographers we’ve seen, a member of the Chicago based art collective ‘We Are Supervision’ and also the designer behind four new t-shirts that Upper Playground is releasing. While his photographic style documents stark, personal and eye opening accounts of the far reaching corners of this world, when it comes to design KC Ortiz generally takes a much more light hearted approach and aims to make fundamentally simple, “weird, funky stuff.” And this line of tees is just that. All four t-shirts are available at Upper Playground retail locations and online at the Upper Playground web store. ~read on
