Be The Alpha is a step away from the typical genre of T-Shirts that we feature here. These T-Shirts were designed for people who are outdoorsman, athletes, and adventure seekers. These T-Shirts are made for those of us who aspire to be alpha, to be the best that we can be physically and mentally. Steve Grod founded his brand in order to promote the message of Be The Alpha:
“I have always believed that life is meant to be enjoyed and experienced, to the fullest. I always felt that many people are not truly LIVING; they are merely existing. I believe in creating my own destiny and inventing my own future. The Be The Alpha brand represents a re-definition of what it means to Be The Alpha. Real Alphas embody a quiet confidence and not afraid to question the status quo. They stay true to themselves and celebrate authenticity and individuality.” -Steve Grod
Gros is no stranger to adventure, he is both a Brazilian Jiujitsu practitioner and a avid hiker, he has pursued the art of Jiujitsu in Japan and summited many high peaks, from Mt. Fuji in Japan to many of the high peaks of the Himalayas, including a two-week sojourn to Mt. Everest base camp in Nepal. Cool.
I myself am becoming quite the avid extreme hiker. This year along I have hiked to the highest peak on the island of Oahu (Mount Ka’ala) and have also traversed what is considered to the the most difficult trail on Oahu, the Bowman Trail to Bowman Terminus and Haiku Stairs. The later hike was an 11 hour / 12 mile adventure that I will never forget. Imagine walking along ridges whose width is just the size of a foot, as well as near vertical climbing with and without rope. I am definitely trying my best to Be The Alpha.
What if the uncanny X-Men were actually a bunch of uncanny hipsters?! Well, they’d probably consist of unruly hair, overgrown mustaches, really thick glasses and form fitting second hand clothing. Or, they’d look a lot like the Mighty Fine superhero hipsters featured below.
Here at Mighty Fine, we like to keep an eye on the latest trends in internet humor. (Or the OMG LULZ, if you will.) Having a healthy appreciation for comic book geekery, as many of you do, we found the recent rounds of “superhero hipster” memes to be pretty darn hilarious. Still, it got us to thinking… what if saving the world was actually the job of hipsters who also had a full slate of shopping for skinny jeans and arguing about the relative worth of Wilco’s last album?
I love the text featured below the Uncanny Hipsters tee, so fitting.

In this episode I wearÂ Failed Launch by Manos LakoutsisÂ and review a tee sent to me by 410BC.Â The 410BC tee is called Skate Wolf and is a parody of the Michael J. Fox 1980′s classic,Teen Wolf. Sorry about the knocking midway though – I didn’t even notice it while recording, yikes! Enjoy with tea and a comfy tee!
Skate WolfÂ by 410BC.Â Good: Fancy custom packaging, did a good job of sewing on the custom hang tag, very soft and comfy tee, very complex print, lots of colors. Bad: A bit tight around the neck.Â Price: Currently Not Available for Purchase.Â
Dance Party MassacreÂ posted a sneak peeks of a couple of their new products recently on the DPM blog. They previewed three new items, one of which is the first ever DPM sweater.

The items are not available for sale just yet, but they will be on the site once DPM wraps up their photo and video shoot for the new products.Â
