Sweetbands: Fancy Up Your Forehead

I don’t think that I’ve ever given sweatbands any love on this blog. That’s about to change because I’ve just discovered Sweetbands and they are awesome! Sweetbands aren’t just for athletes, but they’re for the everyday person looking to spice up their wardrobe. As the Sweetbands founders, Tobin Nageotte and Paul Klinke put it, “Sweetbands are just like sweatbands, except they are totally sweet.” I agree.

They’ve got a wide collection of Sweetbands available for sale, but my favorites include: The Patriot, ┬áThe GeauxThe Chomp, The Tenenbomb, The Stache, and The Gay. They’re all so fun. Don’t those product photos make you just want to snag one, or two, or all of them. I know that I want them all!

SweetBands are available now from the official SweetBands shop for $9 a piece.

410BC Winter ’09 Line

Our friends at 410BC just unveiled their Winter ’09 and it’s as impressive as ever. Along with the expected T-Shirt fare, they’ve also got button down shirts, sweaters and hoodies. I have to say that over the past year and a half that I have blogging about T-Shirts, 410BC is the brand that I have seen grow the most. They have definitely created a distinct look all their own.

The tees are priced between $24 – $28 but remember that you can save 20% off your entire order if you use the coupon code “coty” at checkout. But if you’d like an even better deal then you’ll need to check back on Halloween because 410BC will be holding a 24hour Halloween Day 50% off sale. That’s right, 50% off. Crazy? I know.





The Intern Shirt

I spotted this tee over at Direct Daily, a blog about direct marketing and engaging advertising. It was a T-Shirt that was passed out to interns at the prestigious New York based advertising agency JWT. The shirt featured silkscreened sweet stains and dirt and were given out at the beginning of the internship. It served as an eye opener to the interns as to how hard they were expected to work. It kind of reminds me of college hazing, but hey, I like it!

“JWT New York had a grueling 10-week summer internship for creatives. They were given daily projects and made to work long hours and weekends. To prepare them for the intense experience, they were given t-shirts with silkscreen-printed sweat stains and rips that resembled whip marks. “No interns were actualy harmed. Honest.”
