Swash Clothing Care System Refreshes Dry-Clean Only Clothes

swash_clothing_system

The thing about clothes that require dry cleaning is that you have to make the trek to the cleaners. That’s a pain, which means they’ll often go for longer periods without getting the attention they need. If you still want to wear them and don’t feel like scaring your companions off, the SWASH™ Express Clothing Care System is able to refresh them between washes.

Simply place clothing inside, insert a SWASH PODS™ cup and press start—your items will be restored and ready to wear in just ten minutes. Removes light wrinkles and neutralizes doors, restores fit that’s lost after wear without pilling or fading, and is safe for most fabrics, including denim, wool, polyester, lycra, cotton,cashmere, sequins, beading and lace; not recommended for silk, leather, velvet, suede or fur.

This kind of convenience clearly comes at a price, and the Swash system is no exception with its $500 price tag.

Lonehood is an Attachable Hood That Turns Any Shirt Into a Hoodie

Attachable Hoodie

Hoodies might not be as big as they used to be, but they still add a little extra something to your outfit. Fashion aside, they’re also pretty functional and can come in pretty handy when it’s raining or when it’s particularly hot outside. They’re not exactly the most formal of clothes, so you probably won’t be able to wear them at the office without getting a memo.

So here’s an alternative: the Lonehood. It’s basically an attachable hood by StyleUno that lets you turn any collared shirt into a hoodie.

Turn Heads, Even When It’s Dark: Betabrand Reflective Plaid Button-Down

Betabrand Reflective Plaid Button-Down

 

How many close calls have you had while riding your bike at night? The unfortunate reality is that a lot of cyclists are involved in accidents when it’s dark out. This is why it’s important to install lights or decorate your bike with reflective stickers (even though it might cramp your style) if you don’t plan on wearing a reflective jacket or helmet.

However, if none of these sound appealing to you, then here’s another option: Betabrand’s Reflective Plaid Button-Down. These slim-fitted shirts have 3M retroreflective yarns woven right into them so you’ll be impossible to miss at night.

The Reflective Plaid Button-Down shirt costs $118.

Mondo 237 Clothing

Remember the honeycomb carpet pattern outside Room 237 in The Shining? If you were busy covering your eyes or screaming your head off, then you probably didn’t notice the distinct pattern on the carpet that has now spawned an entire clothing line called Mondo 237, which includes knit sweaters, cardigans, scarves, scarf, ski masks, a door mat, and an area rug.

The pattern on the fabric used was designed by artist Sal Giliberto.Continue Reading

Fashion Has Changed: Tron Hoodie

Tron Hoodie1

 

Tron’s legacy goes on. You might not agree with the computer effects the moviemakers used to make Jeff Bridges look several decades younger, but you have to agree that the Tron cycle was truly something else. And now you can wear it–or at least, a hoodie inspired by it–and look just as awesome.

This Tron hoodie was designed by HDDoobie and it even sports neon strips that actually glow for good measure.

Every Weight Watcher’s Dream: Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top

Caffeine Slimming Top

 

Breaking up is hard to do, but losing weight is even harder. At least, it is, for the people who have tried but constantly failed. It’s probably this group of people that the makers of this Caffeine-Infused Slimming Tank Top are targeting. As the name implies, this top apparently has slimming properties as it’s infused with green coffee and brown algae that’ll work on stimulating your body’s metabolism. That’s because the micronized caffeine stimulates lipolysis, which is the natural breakdown of stored fats, while the brown algae moisturizes the skin.

It also cheats because the top comes in black, and we all know black gives the illusion of a slimmer figure. The manufacturer claims that the top can help trim its wearer’s hips by up to 1 inch and thighs by up to 11/4 of an inch if it’s worth for eight hours a day for 21 straight days. Sounds too good to be true, I’ll give it that, but who knows? It could actually work.

The Caffeine-Infused Slimming Top retails for $85.

Scratch-and-Sniff Jeans Will Have You Smelling Minty Fresh

Naked and Famous Jeans

If you’re too lazy to change your shirt every day, then Wool & Prince’s shirt might just be the thing you need. But if jeans are the problem, then you might want to check out Naked & Famous’s line of scratch-and-sniff jeans. Each pair has layers of micro-capsules on the surface that can be scratched to reveal the scent within.

Their latest pair boasts of a minty-fresh scent to throw people off when it comes to your jeans-changing habits. Designer Brandon Svarc explains: “We designed ‘scratch-and-sniff’ jeans because we love fun and unique things. If I can make my customers smile, then I’m doing my job correctly. We love innovations and will continue to make unique and crazy fabrics of all kinds.”

And unique they are. This isn’t the first time Naked & Famous forayed into the unusual side of fashion, as they’ve debuted glow-in-the-dark jeans and pants that change hues with changes in temperature.

The mint-scented jeans are priced at $158.

Dress Shirts Featured Reinforced Tails For Better Bottle Opening

reinforced-shirt-tail-

You’re supposed to be able to open a bottle of beer by twisting the cap off, but lets face it: your baby smooth hands don’t always enjoy it. Those sharp edges dig deep and while you keep a straight face because you don’t want to be made fun of, you secretly wish you had a shirt like the above Long Sleeve Button-down from Austin, Texas-based Criquet. Why? Because the front tails feature an extra layer of fabric strategically placed to make it easier to twist off bottle caps, which the company calls “The Bendle Sleeve”. Unfortunately, the shirts from this company are also really expansive at $85. Presumably you’re getting some good quality fabric, but we’d like to suggest a better alternative for easy beer bottle opening: use your hands on something other than a keyboard now and then!
