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.

3D Printed Nails For All Your Manicuring Needs

sour-razz

As part of our ongoing coverage of everything 3D printed, here are some glue-on nails by NYC artists Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford. They’re made out of vinyl and are available at their Shapeways store. Shapeways has been around for a while, so it’s not like we’re talking about personal 3D printing here. But it’s entirely conceivable that you could do these yourself at home if you have a printer. For now though, if you like these designs (our eyes are bleeding from not liking them, to be honest, but to each their own…), you’ll have to pay between $35 and $50.

Nintendo Controller Rings FTW

Nintendo Controller Promise Ring

 

If you “intendo” to get serious-o with your significant other, then you might want to present her with this Nintendo Controller promise ring. Fancy gems? Check. Unique design? Check. Gamer-approved? Check, check, and check!

The ring was designed by Paul Michael Designs, who have cleverly dubbed their design as the “Intendo.” With gemstone buttons, a gold D-Pad, and silver “wire” that goes round and round your lovely lady’s finger, I doubt she’d turn you down. Just make sure you follow through and go for the ultimate level-up in your relationship: marriage.

Awesome Reversible Scarf Tells The Story of ‘The Hobbit’ On Both Sides

Hobbit Scarf

 

So The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug still reigns supreme in the box office. Whether you’re going to watch it for the first, second, or nth time, why don’t you show a bit of support and lots of love for the franchise by wrapping this Hobbit-inspired scarf around your neck? The images on the scarf might seem random at first. But if you look closely, then you’ll notice that it’s actually a graphic retelling of The Hobbit.

The imagery on the scarf begins with Bilbo Baggins’ journey from the Shire and back again. Get your knitting needles out and start knitting this as if Smaug were after you.

The pattern is available at Ravelry for $5.

Sebastian Errazuriz’s ’12 Shoes for 12 Lovers’ are Wearable Art With Rich Backstories

12 Shoes for 12 Lovers-2

Relationships, regardless of how serious they are, will impact your life in one way or another. This is specially true in Sebastian Errazuriz’s case, who used his past relationships and experiences with ex-girlfriends as inspiration to create 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers. It’s essentially a collection of twelve shoe sculptures that capture the essence of the women and the relationship that he had with them.

For example, the shoe pictured above, “Cry Baby” Alexandra, is about a weeping girl who came to him after a particularly bad break-up. Another shoe in the series, “Gold Digger” Alison, is about a girl who left him for her rich boss (exactly what the name implies.)

You can find the rest of the shoes in the series after the break.

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!

High-Tech Ugly Christmas Sweaters With Animated Designs are Still Ugly

High Tech Christmas Sweater

These are Christmas sweaters by Digital Dudz and they’re as tacky and ugly, like you’d expect ugly Christmas sweaters to be. They’re a lot more high tech compared to your typical sweater though, because the designs actually come to life. Some sweaters have fireplaces that burn bright, the one with the snowglobe has snow falling randomly, while two others that feature Santa and an adorable kitten have eyes that periodically move sideways.

Creepy? Yes. Nice? No. Still ugly? Definitely.

The sweater has a velcro pocket on the inside that can fit most mobile devices, include an iTouch, iPhone, or a Samsung Galaxy S3. The mobile device, in turn, runs the free companion app, which provides the animation.

Each animated Ugly Christmas Sweater is priced at $54.95.

Cringe-Worthy Wearables: Shirts With Quotes That Are Slightly Wrong

Slightly-Wrong-Quotes-tshirts

Some lines are so epic that you’d think everyone in the world knows them by heart. The vast majority who are constantly exposed to mainstream media probably do. For example, what song do you think of when someone mentions MC Hammer? What line comes to mind when someone mentions the Joker?

It’s one thing to get it wrong, but it’s another thing to get it wrong and be proud of it. The latter is what some people are going for with this cringe-worthy series of humorous shirts that proudly display the slightly erroneous quotes. Instead of “Can’t Touch This,” we’ve got “Can’t Touch Him.” Instead of “Why so serious?,” we’ve got “I am so serious.”

Think these are bad? Well, there’s more where they came from. Hit the break to check out a couple more.Continue Reading
