Our birthdays (boyfriend + me) have come and gone–hoozah! But the boyfriend managed to squeeze in a post-birthday gift yesterday–this unbelievably soft and cuddly hoody from Threadless aptly called “The Pen is Mighter than the Sword”.
I don’t know which is more awesome, the fact that it’s red (my favorite color) or that it’s seemingly made just for writers. I can just imagine myself wearing this. I think this requires me to parade down the street screaming, “writers, represent!” Haha!
Threadless is a Chicago-based online apparel store specializing in graphic shirts and hoodies. More than a profit-making company, they actually put value on building relationships with their community members. It’s a website where you can shop and participate. Members can submit their designs online, which will then be up for public voting. The winning designer gets cash and a gift certificate. Oh, and they’ll run the design too.
Even more awesome, they don’t reprint designs unless the clamor for more of that design is enough to topple their office building. Hah. Kidding, I was just exaggerating. Seriously though, they can reprint old designs if there is enough demand.
I didn’t know a lot about this T-shirt company until B handed me this yesterday. Drop by their website and check out some of their designs.
