PleaseDressMe TV Launched

Last September I reviewed the then new site, PleaseDressMe so I was automatically interested when I found out on Twitter that the first episode of their new online show was was available. I just wrapped up watching the first episode of PleaseDressMe TV, the show hosted by the Vaynerchuk Brothers, Gary and AJ. I have to say that I did enjoy the first episode, aptly titled as a “beta” by Gary. The show reminded me a lot of the formula used for Wine Library TV. It was shot Gary’s office, which is a familiar setting if you watch the other video’s that Gary posts on his personal site. 

Much like WLTV, PleaseDressMe TV discuses and rates a bunch t-shirts on a 100-point scale. They rated a total of 7 shirts, each coming from a different vendor/brand (i.e. Threadless, Design by Humans). They rate these items based on different factors that are very subjective like design, feel, comfort and color. So it’s interesting to see how they will rate simple t-shirts vs. more complex t-shirts in the future (just because it has 12 colors doesn’t mean it deserves a score of 90+). 

I liked how Gary intertwined some of his business sense into the show, especially when they started talking about personal branding during the Kid Robot segment. The only issue I had with the Kid Robot segment is when they scored the shirt low because of pricing (the shirt cost $50). I think that the review should be based more so on design rather then pricing, just my opinion. 

They did give one bad review on the show, with Gary calling the Collar Free tee Freedom by Rachel Cobb “ugly.” This was interesting to watch, since praise is so commonplace in the t-shirt culture. I’ll be looking forward to more harsh reviews – it’s entertaining. 

Gary and AJ also give away free tee’s on the show, in varying sizes, so that’s great. Also, they have live interaction via Ustream which is awesome in terms of user interactivity and feedback. 

All in all I enjoyed the show. I’ll be watching future interviews and it may have inspired me to do a couple more video posts of my own in the future! Click on to watch the show:
