.45 Colt Nickel Bullet Cuff Links

Screen Shot 2013-04-25 at 11.09.25 PM

Some might say that to adorn yourself with gun related accessories these days could be in bad taste. But others would argue that it’s quite the opposite when you can look at a core aspect of American culture, neuter it in some way and wear it proudly; bullets that are keeping your shirt sleeves together aren’t hurting anyone, after all. And the .45 Colt Nickel Bullet Cuff Links certainly stand out next to your almost never ending supply of shiny, bling-y, somewhat gaudy cufflinks you see all over the place. Better yet, at $23, they’ll make you stand out in a subtle, understated way while hurting your wallet not at all.

Superlight Windbreaker Folds Up To Fit In Your Pocket

Salomon-Light-Jacket

Ever been jogging and wished you’d brought your jacket? But it didn’t seem that cold, right? If you’d had Solomon’s S-LAB Light Jacket, you could have just brought it with you in your jogging pants’ pocket and pulled it out when you noticed you were getting cold. It weighs all of 70g, (2.5oz.) and has what the company calls “ClimaWind” technology, which means it’s made from a highly breathable material that won’t have you starting to sweat, making you want to take it off, only to get cold again because now you’re sweaty and it’s still cold out…

It’s $80.

Can’t Stop Eating? Well, At Least These Gluttony Pants Won’t Stop Fitting

Gluttony Pants

You know it’s time to stop asking for second (or third) helpings when your pants are fit to burst. Over the years, people found a way to circumvent this discomfort by wearing their ‘fat pants’ when they know they’re about to eat more than they should, like when they’re attending a party or going to an eat-all-you-can buffet.

You probably have a pair in your closet, whether it’s sweatpants or a pair of jeans that’s two sizes bigger than your usual. Fat pants may be more forgiving on your waist, but not so much on the other parts of your body, making you look frumpy and short and just generally unattractive.

Then along came the Gluttony Pants.

Viral Marketing Done Right: American Eagle Announces Paint-On Skinny Skinny Jeans

Spray-on-AEO-Skinny-Skinny-jeans

Yes, they’re trolling. But it’s a darn good one. The 30 second advertisement featured below is about a purported new range of skinny jeans from clothing retailer American Eagle. “It’s our skinniest fit yet and is so comfortable you’ll feel like you’re wearing nothing at all,” boats the narrator. And that’s when you realize that the pants are quite literally painted on. The campaign doesn’t end with a simple video however, as they provide you with a link to a special page on their website where you can contemplate buying a can of the spray-on fabric. There is even an option to add the $50 “Limited Edition” set to your shopping cart; pressing the button brings up an “out of stock” warning. Right.

Let’s be clear, this is absolutely a tongue-in-cheek hoax, as confirmed by the company’s vice-president last friday on the Today Show. But it does show the company hitting one out of the park in the field of viral marketing. The video has racked up over a million views in three days and got the Interwebs chatting.

Check out the video, below.

Foster Your Child’s Talents, They Say

bib

This is the “Goo Period Vicent Van Bib.” It’s a bib for your baby, with a fancy painting frame drawn in the middle. The idea is that your little toddler is going to be a toddler, and he’ll spit, drool and wipe his hands all over it, and instead of it becoming the dirty laundry it should become, you’re going to call it art. Or something. How cute. We’d ‘awwww’ all over the place is babies were the kinds of things we’re into. But we’re not. Well… I shouldn’t speak for Hazel. I’m not. But we do both think that some of you out there will love this, and would probably like to know that it’ll cost you a whole $7 to own your own.

Lasso Slippers Pack Flat, Assemble In Seconds

Lasso-flatpacked-slippers

A little bit of ingenuity goes a long way to making us want to part from our money. In this case we have the above slippers, called Lasso, which are made from one piece of wool felt with a leather sole and can be packed completely flat. But run the laces through the holes and as you do so, the slippers take shape. It’s fun, quirky, and if we ever wore slippers around the office, we’d be all over these. But no, it’s barefoot at the OhGizmo! headquarters.

A £27 (about $40) pre-order on the fully funded Kickstarter campaign will buy you a pair, and yes that’s a lot for slippers, but at least you get to pick the color of your laces. Also, cool slippers, bro.

Someone Somewhere Is Going To Think These Hoofed Boots Are A Good Idea

unicorn-hooves-boot-platforms

The particular item you’re looking at is a set of Magical Unicorn Boots handmade by Etsy seller Oonacat. Maybe we added the “magical”, but at this point, we don’t think that really matters. Oonacat makes at least one other similar, heelless, hoofed boot. That one is called the Demon Hooves and is featured in the video we embedded after the break. Each one is “hand sculpted and cast urethane using professional grade materials only,” and you can provide your own set of boots if you’ve got one that you’re particularly attached to. Her asking price however includes the boot, and that’s one hefty asking price: $440.

We’re not sure how hard it is to walk in these. Matter of fact, this editor is not sure how it is to walk in any heels, but the lady in the video seems to be having an ok time.

Whether for Halloween or every day, at least now you know these things exist.
