Best East Bay Product: Preeners and power lines 

Taylor-Made Clothes

As of Christmas 2005, you couldn't get away from them -- hoodies and T-shirts screenprinted with birds and power lines. There's something about the design, the feeling it gives of road-tripping, gauging your progress alongside that of the birds on one end of the speed spectrum and the buzz of phone lines on the other. It's by Taylor-Made, an Oakland-based company featuring screenprinted and embroidered apparel by Taylor Neaman-Goudey. Some items are limited-edition; most are just one-of-a-kind as a result of the handmade process. And Neaman-Goudey is no one-powerline pony: Her condom-pocket boy-short undies, screenprinted with bicycles or Jolly Rogers, are a stylish idea whose time has come. Her "Flowering" dresses look comfortable but striking. And telephone poles and bikes take the "white man's noose" out of the necktie. Oh, and Taylor-Made is a company with an evolving conscience -- she uses mostly American Apparel, but is looking for another sweatshop-free company to buy her raw materials from, preferably one that doesn't exploit women or union workers.
