Wear Your Muni Love: Muni-Inspired Shirts and Other Goodies (updates)
Update: (Sept. 1, 2009. 10:30 a.m.) Since we first published this post, we’ve received a few more juicy bits of Muni merchandise.
At $5 a pop, get ’em while they’re available. I’ll have a set of 12, please.
These shirts are $22.75, so save your pennies and help these artists out. You’ll look good doing it, if we do say so ourselves 😉
The phrase “economic stimulus package” always makes me feel a little inappropriate. But say you have some extra cash to, er, help the economy â€” we’ve found some great Muni stuff for you to spend it on.
Muni Shirts by Walter Konig (of Walnotes)Â are based on a design that was sold in New York a few years ago. “When I saw them I wondered why they didn’t have them for San Francisco. So I sat in Cafe Abir and designed them. I used a Muni Map to figure out locations along the way,” Walter told us.
The shirts come in a variety of colors, many of them printed on American Apparel tees.

Walter said that Lower Hater (597 Haight Street) will have them soon, too.
More shirts and other goodies after the jump, including a really awesome hoodie with an old-school Muni bus print and buttons made from old transfers.
Headline Shirts just came out earlier this summer with a Muni shirt honoring (well, sorta) the 22-Fillmore. The company had a few tips on riding Muni, including one that blows the whistle on a certain Bay Area rapper:
No radios are allowed on Muni. Apparently that doesn’t apply to the linebacker-shaped gentleman who just sat next to you with his boombox. (We hope you like Too Short.)
Hey what’s wrong with Too Short? Anyway, carrying on…
Oh, at the Zinefest, we also spotted some cool buttons made from old Fast Passes by the creators of the magazine, punkpunk. But I couldn’t find any online purchasing information. Anybody?
dish on Zazzle has a couple of cool shirts with the SF Muni Railway shirt emblem.
One of my faves has to be Amos Goldbaum’s old-school trains on T-shirts and hoodies. Just for kicks, here are Amos Goldbaum’s models looking incredibly American-Apparel-tastic:
