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!

Happy Ugly Holidays: Design Your Own Ugly Christmas Sweater

Ugly Christmas Sweater

Christmas is the season for holiday cheer and ugly Christmas sweaters. The latter is more like a running joke these days, with folks gifting friends, family, and loved ones with atrocious-looking sweaters that get a huge round of laughs the moment the presents are opened. Personally, ugly sweaters are starting to grow on me. Maybe I’ve just seen too much of them, but a lot of them look so bad and outrageous that they almost look good.

This time around, you can take on a more active role in creating an ugly Christmas sweater using Coke Zero’s ugly sweater generator. Once you’re done with your masterpiece (or loserpiece, because the uglier it is, the better), get your friends to vote on your design. If you land in the top 100, Coke will have someone knit your design and send it to you with their compliments.

Stantt Uses 3D Body Scans to Make Shirts That Fit Perfectly

Stantt Shirt

Shirts that aren’t the right size for your body don’t just look bad; they’re also uncomfortable. You can study size charts all you want, but unless you’re getting a shirt that’s made to order, then chances are you won’t really find a shirt that’ll fit you perfectly.

Cue Stantt and their revolutionary approach that’ll fit you in one of over fifty available sizes that were created using 3D body scan data as a reference. Matt Hornbuckle and Kirk Keel, who are behind Stantt, hope to change how clothes are tailored, and for now, they’re setting their sights on the casual button-up shirt.

Bulletproof Suit Looks Just Like Normal Suit

Garrison-bulletproof-suit

It’s hard to imagine the kinds of scenarios where a bulletproof suit would be needed, aside from James Bond-esque assignments, but we’re not foolish enough to believe they don’t exist. If you’re one of those people, you’ll probably know that such suits usually look somewhat conspicuous, giving up some comfort in exchange for protection. But the suits from Garrison Bespoke are different. They use a special carbon nanotube fabric that’s soft and supple under normal circumstances, but instantly hardens on impact from an exterior projectile. Last year, the company worked with the US 19th Special Forces in developing it, and the material is 50% lighter than the Kevlar normally used in similar applications. It reportedly stopped .22 and .40 caliber bullets in field tests.

Of course such protection won’t come cheap, with the individually tailored suits starting at $20,000. Given that the target market is oil executives and high finance bigwigs, we suspect they’ll be more than able to settle this particular bill.

Anti-Rape Underwear Could Be Just Around The Corner

AR-wear

Like it or not, there are situations that are more risky for women, whether it’s walking down a dark street at night or going to questionable parties. Now a company is trying to put the odds a little more in the women’s camp by designing a line of underwear, AR Wear, that can’t be removed by someone other than the wearer. The hope is that they’ll help prevent rape, since studies have shown that “resistance increases the chance of avoiding a completed rape without making the victim more likely to be physically injured”. These shorts have special cut-and-tear-resistant bands around the waist, leg openings and central panels that prevent an unwanted assailant from removing them forcefully. Only the wearer can take them off by making use of the simple and elegant “clock-hand lock”, which involves placing two small levers on the front of the garment at specific angles. Each piece of underwear comes with it’s own combination, whether it’s 1:40, 3:50 and so on.

Of course this doesn’t guarantee safety, and precautions should always be taken when you’re in an unfamiliar and potentially risky environment. But this is just one more tool that could end up becoming the deciding factor between an assailant going through with his crime and giving up frustrated.

Unfortunately the line is still under development and there’s no clear timeline for when, if ever, it will hit the market. You can help the company along with a donation to their IndieGogo campaign, but know that this doesn’t automatically put you in line to receive the underwear. It only buys you a discount once development is completed.

Muscle Shirt: No Muscles Required

WonderBra-masculino-1

If girls can get push up bras, and bum implants, and fake eyelashes, and hair extensions, and fake nails… well it stands to reason dudes may want in on some of that sweet, sweet artificial action. Meet the FunkyBod undershirt. Featuring a host of specially contoured and strategically placed pads, the shirt is meant to be worn under other shirts to give the impression you have more meat on your bones than you really do. There are pectoral, shoulder, bicep and triceps inserts, all of which give a balanced look and the appearance of someone who’s been lifting some iron and eating the chicken breasts like a good gym rat. Hopefully you can combine this with loose jeans so no one notices the spaghetti strands that serve as your legs, and you’re all set. After that, your plan is to go to a fairly dark nightclub and attract the attention of someone inebriated enough not to notice in the morning that you look nothing like you did on the dance floor the night before. That, my friends, is a bulletproof plan. Bulletproof.

It’s £29, or roughly $46.
