Bamboo MacBook Pro Case by SILVA

These Bamboo MacBook cases by SILVA aren’t cheap. They start at $179.99 and go up to $314.99 in price. They aren’t cheap because each bamboo case is custom made and that takes a lot of work. Precision detail is the name of the game here. And let’s admit it, they look damn sexy. You won’t be able to pack a lot of peripherals with this briefcase. But who cares. Your MacBook will be sitting comfy in a case that will likely be 100X sexier than whatever generic case your peers have. Imagine how boss you would look walking into a Starbucks with this.

The SILVA Custom Bamboo MacBook Pro Case is available now for 13″ and 15″ MacBooks from SILVA. Prices range from $179.99 to $314.99.

Premium Alumnium Ampersand by Ugmonk

If y ou’ve been salivating over the 18″ Premium Wood Ampersand, but couldn’t fathom spending $299 for then maybe you want to consider picking up the Premium Alumnium Ampersand instead. This recently released Ugmonk item is 7.75″ tall and available at a much more affordable price of $54. It’s sexy and you know it.

Premium Alumnium Ampersand is available now from Ugmonk for $54.

A Spiffy Wood Tie: Fashion Against The Grain

Paired with the perfect shirt, this wood tie could work pretty well. It’s got a classic look and feel, in terms of furniture at least. The guy in the product shot seems to pull it off. Would I wear it? Sure. At the very least it’s an awesome conversation piece. Just make sure that if using this tie to pick up girls, it’s not the only weapon in your arsenal.

The Wood Tie is available now from Uncommon Goods for $34.

Unique LA Spotlight: TIMBER!

During the next few days I’ll be featuring the awesome clothing brands that will be setting up booths at Unique LA, an independent design and gift show that will take place on April 24th thru the 25th at the California Market Center.

To kick things off I’d like to feature a brand that was started in 2006 by California designer Chad Eaton called TIMBER! Every shirt featured at TIMBER! is designed and screen printed by Eaton (I love the dedication). This brand has one of the more unique design niches since TIMBER! is all about lumberjack culture.

“TIMBER! is a t-shirt company based on a story about lumberjacks, their bosses (the top hat guys with an excessive hair curse.) and a bigfoot stuck between both their worlds.”

Eaton is currently at work on a fully illustrated book based on the TIMBER! universe so be on the look out for that. TIMBER! tees are priced from $18 to $32 and you can purchase them over at their ETSY shop.

You can find TIMBER! at Unique LA in Booth 270.

Chop Stick Wardrobe by Andreas Saxer

You probably won’t find these at your local Ikea. Designer, Andreas Saxer created these chop stick like wardrobe hangers and was inspired by traditional Japanese wood joinery methods and the daily used chop sticks. Four wooden sticks are loosely connected with an aluminum profile. The loose system gets very stable by the weight of the clothes.

The piece was part of the Made In Asia exhibit in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Cubicle Project Part 2

My quest to T-Shirt organizing imortality continues! This episode I walk you through the now stocked 3X3 cubicle that I built last week. I describe how the tees are organized, give you a peek at some packages waiting to be featured on the show and show off a small but growing button collection!

The Cubicle Project Part 1

So, I’m super stoked that during the past year of T-Shirt blogging I’ve received tons of T-Shirts to review for both my blog and on Co-Tee TV. But, I’ve been running out of space in my small apartment since packages have just been piling while the-Shirts keep coming (I’ve got not complaints when it comes to the last part of that sentence).

In the hopes of getting organized, I’ve assembled a little 3×3 cubicle that I’ll be using to store and organize T-Shirts that have been sent to me, have been reviewed and ones that still need to be reviewed.

The cubicle itself was easy enough to put together. I picked up a Closet Maid branded cubicle from Target for a little under $40. And it took me about 20 minutes to assemble.

In this video you see that just a few of the cubicles are filled with tees. Well, I’ve only gone through and inventoried just 1/4 of shirts that I have sitting around apartment. Also I share with you a random a picture that mysteriously ended up in one of the cubicles and also some Beatles stuff.

In Part 2 I’ll show you the cubicles filled (to the brim) and how I inventoried the tees. Until then, enjoy!
