Win a $100 Gift Card to Oaklandish!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


About a month ago I was walking through Greenwich Village in NYC and saw some kid rocking an Oaklandish hat. This kinda made me excited so I bellowed “Baaaaaay Areeeeeeaaaa!” and most assuredly frightened the shit out of him. I couldn’t help it, I love The Bay and I love Oaklandish.

Why do I love Oaklandish? Well they make dope threads, but that’s only part of it. I also love them because part of their core values is giving back to the community. Part of the proceeds of every piece you buy goes back into supporting local Oakland organizations. How fantastic is that? You can read all about it here.

But like I said, they do have really dope threads and now is your chance to win some! You can try to look as cool as this guy (I say “try” because I mean, look at this guy. It’s hard to look cooler than him).


Check out the Oaklandish Spring Line here and then enter to win the $100 gift card below:
