Superman Caped Knee High Socks

These Superman Caped Knee High Socks from 80sTees is so bad that they’re awesome. Seriously, if you’ve got the audacity to use these socks (of course, with shorts not long pants) then you’ve earned a pair of thumbs of up from me. There really isn’t much more to be said about these.

The Superman Caped Knee High Socks is available now from 80sTees for $10.00.

And if you’re amongst the die-hard group of people that will dig these socks then you probably will love Justice League: Doom, the latest DC Animated movie. Justice League: Doom is available now from Amazon for $18.99.

Tech Noir + Other Stuff

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about Found Item Clothing and our good friend Travis Greenwood. Well now is as good of a time than ever to get all caught up. As you might know, Found Item Clothing faithfully recreates T-Shirt designs from popular movies of our youth. One of their most recent designs is called Tech Noir from the immensely popular 1984 Sci-Fi flick, The Terminator. This is classic James Cameron before he made 3D blue people. I kind of like the old James Cameron a better, but I digress.

Not sure of the Tech Noir reference? Its from the nightclub of the same name featured in the film. It was location for the initial sequence between Kyle Reece and the then pre-Governator T-800. Tech Noir is available now from Found Item Clothing for $19.95.

Travis has also been busy blogging over at the official Found Item Clothing blog, It Goes To 11. Check out the interview that he recently did with Jon Martin of Shirtoid. And if you’re feeling especially patriotic then head on over to Hide You Arms for a list of 26 Captain America T-Shirts that Travis put together as a guest post.

Co-Tee TV Episode 77: FFB Bam, SoillFu and Voltron

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear FFB Bam by Fur Face Boy and review Voltron FVR FRSH by SoillFu, an urban streetwear brand based out of Dallas, Texas.

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod, iPhone or iPad by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Voltron FVR FRSH by SoillFu. Pros: The shirt features a custom neck tag and tag on the lower left seam. Cons: First off, the wrong size was sent to me so I could not try on the T-Shirt. I did notice a lot of stray markings on the tee. There were stray green markings on the front of the T-Shirt to both the left and right of the center Voltron design. Also, on the inside of the T-Shirt were even more stray brown markings. The sewing work on the custom tags were not done very good, a lot of stray thread  and uneven sewing (see image below). The neck area on the T-Shirt was quite dirty. Also, a quick inspection of the print of the design tells me that it had been previously washed because the ink looked faded, especially the black ink. And most alarming was the very odd odor of the T-Shirt. All of this leads me to conclude that the T-Shirt has been previously worn. I was not blown away by this product from Soillfu. All of this distracted me from the actual design, but even the design did not do it for me and would not be something that I would wear. Price: $24.00.

FFB Bam! by Fur Face Boy. Pros: Another excellent comic inspired T-Shirt from Fur Face Boy. The design itself is actually based on “Sweet Dreams Baby!” by pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein. This five-color print features a custom hang tag and neck tag, as well as a custom FFB tag on the left seam of the tee. As with all FFB tees, this shirt comes with FFB logo stickers and is packaged in a custom FFB plastic bag. Price: $32.
