Oh the funny, quirky things you’ll find on the Interwebs. Like this T-Shirt.
We like it.
It’s $17 to $21.
No, no we know it’s nothing new but come on, like that matters.
Wear your hoodie front-side-back and use the hood to hold popcorn right in front of your pie hole. You can also hold other things in there, like chips, or even burritos. Or pie. But we still think you should stick to popcorn, if only because it’s less likely to make a mess.
This is the kind of genius thing we wish we’d thought of ages ago, and which makes you wonder about just how many more such simple life tricks are around.

We’re all looking forward to the summer. Only some of us are looking forward to more than just the sun and the warmth: we’re thinking about riding again. But why not celebrate the departure of the snow and ice with a spiffy cycling suit? It turns out that there are a bunch of pretty original ones floating around the Interwebs. Like the ones above, which look like Pee-Wee Herman or Spiderman. Or the ones after the jump, that look like they came out of Tron. Or even better, the “Hipster” themed ones. Yeah… hipster. We couldn’t make that stuff up.
So, if you fancy attracting attention as you ride, these seem just about perfect. They’re $150 a piece, but they do seem to be legitimate cycling suits… if only a little strange looking.
We’re slowly emerging from the glacial grip of an Arctic freeze, here in the Northeast, and everyone’s thoughts are still on the business of staying warm. The Waterproof Socks you see above might not be extra useful when everything is frozen solid, but freezing-point temperatures are around the corner, and getting your feet immersed in slush (aka slurry, or whatever you guys call it) is a quick way to get your toes nice and frosted. If you really, really don’t want to get your feet cold, you’re going to want this:
These are the fleece-lined waterproof socks that keep extremities dry and warm down to temperatures as low as -30º F. Used by the U.S. military, the socks have an outer layer of nylon/Lycra for durability and a comfortable stretch fit, a waterproof middle layer, and an inner layer of expedition-weight, double-velour Polartec® fleece that wicks away moisture. Pressure tested to ensure against leaks.
It’s $55 for the pair, which is exorbitant. But we suspect that at that price, they probably work better than wrapping your feet in Ziplock bags.
Last time we wrote about something that was made crocheting, we were looking at the Panzer tank slippers, and you guys loved them. And that’s even taking into account that all that was actually available was a PDF of the pattern, so you could make some for yourself. This particular hat however come fully made, to order, and looks sort of like the helmets the X-Wing fighter pilots were wearing in Star Wars.
You too can be outside braving the cold, all the while sporting a Luke Skywalker-about-to-blow-that-Death-Star-up look. It’ll just cost you a pretty hefty $60.
Up here in the frozen tundra, we’re bracing for temperatures that are expected to reach -29C (-20F) in the next few days. You don’t step outside in that kind of cold with exposed skin, unless you want to get a lovely frostbite (what we call an Ice Tan in these parts). But what are lovebirds to do? Not hold hands everywhere they go? Luckily, there’s the Smittens. They’re a special wool mitten with two hand holes, so that you can display your affection as publicly as you want without fearing losing a digit or two in the process. The Smittens also come with a pair of regular gloves to keep your other hands warm.

In this day and age, people with the right hardware and technology could probably trace your location at any given moment. They could take images of you covertly, and it won’t matter if you’re out on the streets or in the office or in your private bathroom. Drones are everywhere, cameras line most street corners, and communications are easier to intercept now more than ever.
There’s reason for concern, and designer Adam Harvey isn’t afraid to voice out his with his newest collection called ‘Stealth Wear’, which is more of a statement than anything else.
Whether you’re up for looking like just another schmo on the street, or wanting to attract a little more attention, the Reversible Chewbacca Jacket has you covered. It’s all hair and fur and Wookie love on the one side, and thrift store chic on the other. It’s a Mark Ecko creation, and is available for $190. Some reviews complain of the zipper getting stuck in all that fur, but with a little finesse we’re sure you can get it to work properly.
So this Etsy seller and leatherworker, Julia from Montreal, made an awesome belt for her brother that depicted the last level of Super Mario Bros. It’s intricate, delicately pressed and painted, and just looks great. She didn’t put it for sale on the shop, intending for it to be a present to her brother for his birthday. But then, the other brother in the family posted a picture of it to Reddit, where of course it was a hit. So overwhelming was the demand that Julia decided to make new ones like it available on her shop. You can now own the very same belt, or any other depicting similar levels, either in SMB or other side scroller with reasonable proportions. It’s a long process and each belt is handmade, so of course the price is high. She estimates it to be around $395 per belt, but she’ll have a better idea in the first weeks of January and will adjust her price accordingly then. Still, won’t be cheap, but sure as heck is cool.
