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

Forget Your Keys a Lot? Then You Might Want These Lock Pick Earrings

Lock Pick Earrings

Forgot your keys again? Locked out of the house with no one to let you in? Then you might be able to put these unusual earrings to good use. These are the Lock Pick earrings, which really double as lock picks. All you’ll need to do is master the skill of lock-picking, and you’ll be able to get into any locked doors in no time. Just make sure you aren’t doing anything illegal.

Each pair comes with six lock picks, with three dangling on each earring. They include a small hook pick, a small half diamond pick, a single ball rake, a C-rake, an S-rake, and a Tension wrench.

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.

Fairy Tale-Themed Footwear: Walk Happily Ever After

Fairy Tale Footwear

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen princess or fairy tale-themed footwear, and I doubt this will be the last. This latest collection is by designer Charlotte Olympia and it’s aptly called “Once Upon a Time.” The line is part of her Fall 2013 collection and features everyone’s favorite princesses, like Rapunzel and Cinderella, to well-known and beloved characters like Puss in Boots and the Frog Prince.

Each whimsical pair in the line carries Charlotte’s signature style. Considering that a pair of shoes from her line normally costs several hundred dollars (and upwards!), you can probably expect the same less-than-happily-ever-after price tags for this collection.

You can check out more designs from “Once Upon a Time” after the break!Continue Reading

When Rain Catches You By Surprise, RainScarf Has Got You Covered

RainScarf

Don’t let rain catch you by surprise again. Of course, you could carry an umbrella or raincoat with you at all times, but that doesn’t sound very practical or convenient. What you can get instead is the RainScarf. It’s a dual-purpose scarf that has a pleasant surprise on the inside, which comes in especially handy when rain suddenly creeps up on you: a hoodie.

Just wear it like you would wear a regular scarf. When it starts to drizzle, just transform it into a partial raincoat by flipping it inside out from either end. The inside is made from a nylon water-resistant fabric shell, so you’re sufficiently protected, along with whatever gadgets you choose to keep under it while you scramble for shelter.

High Tide Heels

high_tide_heels

I have a friend who goes to the beach in high heels. Really. I know. But hey, I don’t judge. Much. The point is I thought of her when I saw these shoes. They’ve been around for a few years, but I only now found out about them. They’re called High Tide Heels and appear to have been an art exhibit by Paul Schietekat. They’re not for sale, and according to him, not wearable. I still think my friend should have a go in them because at least then she’d have somewhat of an excuse to wear heels on the beach.
