Brown Bros Shoes!!!

We reached out to Greg Brown and asked if we could make a t-shirt in tribute to a Bay Area footwear legend. Before there was the sneaker game, there were the Brown Brothers and their amazing little shoe store in Alameda & Oakland. Actually they once had shops all over the midwest! Established in 1881. Reach here.

A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Alameda Boys & Girls Club.


Empowerment is one our core values here at Brand Marinade. We believe that a good t-shirt with something meaningful on your chest is a great way to empower your voice. We got into t-shirts because of this. And this collection is a little ode to our foundation.

Alameda High Black Student Union circa 2003

One of the first t-shirts "Mr Castro" ever printed was in 2003 when he was a teacher and faculty advisor for the Black Student Union at Alameda High School.

This shirt really set things in motion for the shop and the team we have today at Brand Marinade.

Over the years, several former students asked if he could re-print this shirt. And, well, here it is!

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the AHS BSU.

Get a Mystery Grab Bag!

We will stuff a tote bag silly with goodies from our inventory. You will get a mix of products from various projects that were made by us at our shop. Some fun stuff needs to get in your hands! And you will help us turn inventory into some much needed cash flow!
