Survival Belts: The Belt for Boy Scouts

Survival Belts

 

This belt is for survivors. It’s Slide Belt’s Survival model, and it stays true to its name because it’s built to last through the toughest of situations. The belt is waterproof, resistant to abrasions, and UV protected. It even flexes like normal even at sub-zero temperatures– a feature you’ll appreciate if ice climbing is one of your hobbies.

Aside from that, the belt features a built-in bottle opener which definitely comes in handy when you’re out with the guys. Cough up a few more bucks for the Survivor model and you’ll get a belt that comes with a striker and ferrocerium fire starter rod that’s good for 1,000 strikes.

The belts are up for funding on Kickstarter, where $59 will get you the Survival model while $89 will get you the Survivor Belt with the firestarter.

Check Out Acer’s Selfie Hat for London Fashion Week!

Selfie-Hat

In recent years, people have reached new heights when it comes to vanity. Maybe the era of selfies began when phone makers began putting a camera with each smartphone they made. It exploded when front-facing cameras were upgraded and when monopods (aka selfie sticks) made their way to Amazon.

Someone already came up with the Selfie Brush. Now are you ready for the Selfie Hat? The latter was created by fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis in partnership with Acer. The pink sombrero is eye-catching not only because of all that glitter, but because of an attachment on the brim where Acer’s Iconia A-1 840 tablet is tucked in.

Sushi Socks: Looks Yummy Rolled Up and On Your Feet

Sushi Socks

 

These delicious pieces of sushi might just knock your socks off–literally, because you’re supposed to pull them over your feet and wear them, not eat them. Each one features a sushi pattern that doesn’t look too out there when they’re on your feet, so you shouldn’t be afraid to wear them, even if you’re not big on colorful clothing or socks with loud patterns.

It’s a completely different story when the Sushi Socks are all rolled up and folded in your sock drawer, though, because they look just like delicious sushi!

The sushi detail is knitted into the sock with colored thread instead of being printed. Seven versions are available: Masuzushi (trout sushi), Shrimp, Octopus, Red Caviar, Tuna, Salmon, and Egg.

The Sushi Socks are available for $5.39 a pair.

Fierce Fashion: Jeans Distressed By Tigers, Lions, and Bears

Zoo Jeans

Got a passion for fashion? Well, so do the animals at the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan. A volunteer group called the Mineko Club teamed up with the zoo to create the Zoo Jeans which are truly like no other. These distressed pants are ripped and customized by none other than the tigers, lions, and bears of the zoo!

The handlers basically wrapped the animals’ favorite toys–rubber balls and old tires–in denim and gave it back to them. After they’re done gnawing and clawing at their denim-wrapped toys, the denim was then used to make the Zoo Jeans.

Where’s Waldo? Somewhere On This Shirt

Where's Waldo Shirt

 

Where oh where could Waldo be? Most of the time, it takes a lot of persistence and a sharp eye to spot Waldo from among the crowd on a page in one of his books. But what about on this oh-so-colorful shirt inspired by none other than Waldo? Waldo can be found (or rather, searched for) in all sorts of places around the world.

This time around, Waldo takes his adventure underwater, given that the shirt is blue and all. It doesn’t help that red-and-white stripes are everywhere–from the fishing boats to fishes and numerous dudes sporting the striped pants.

Up for the challenge? You can get one of these shirts for $22 from 80s Tees.

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.
