FitFlop, the Fashionless Way to Look Good

0 pennies earned

We were rolling in the aisles when this gem showed up in our mailbox being pushed by none other than the mighty Apparently, The Jimmy was onto something with his shoes that train you to jump higher.

There's a new company on the scene and their name, which we think should be Tacky Toes but is actually FitFlop purports to offer the ultimate in passive exercise. How it can be better than sitting there watching TV with electrodes attached to your muscles is beyond us, but they offer seven "motivating" reasons for you to get your own pair:

  1. FitFlop midsoles incorporate patent-pending micro-wobbleboardTM technology, to give you a workout while you walk.
    You're not alone if you read that as "waterboard technology" at first. We thought that maybe Dick Cheney had found his calling after being dragged out of the President's --oops, we mean Vice President's-- office.
  2. Every step you take in your FitFlops helps tone and trim your legs.
  3. FitFlops work your bum muscles more.
  4. FitFlops have been shown to have a significant effect on the toning muscles of your thighs.
  5. Walking in FitFlops is like walking barefoot, but a little bit better.
  6. FitFlops make it easier to stay in shape.
Seriously, nothing says "I don't care how I look" better than a wide-soled ugly-logoed shoe that's supposed to make you look better.

Good luck with this one, kids, we predict you'll be FitFlopping your way to bankruptcy in the not-so-distant future.

FTM: Announcing Shred Clothing

0 pennies earned

Jon Kruse sent us this press release and we bet there are some of you considering starting your own label who can appreciate all he does to make the process transparent and effective:

I’m sure everyone at one time in their life has been given the advice to “Do what you love”, but how many people actually follow that advice. I’ve tested video games, modeled characters for a video game, worked at a place that did movie posters for Hollywood, animated storyboards for test commercials… and worked at Taco Bell. What I learned from all of these jobs was that I didn’t love them and what I was truly passionate about was starting my own business, doing things differently, and coming up with new creative ways to solve problems.

I started Mediocore Clothing almost a year ago and it has been a learning experience that has completely changed my life. Getting that first sale online was an awesome feeling and getting over 50 sales in one night made me realize I could do this for the rest of my life.

SHRED was something I wanted to do a while ago but I never had all the pieces to complete the puzzle. I met Eric through a design job I did and he put together a solid team to make my dream into a reality. What we are all trying to accomplish with SHRED are those beautifully illustrated, highly detailed, epic designs that are so badass they give you goosebumps just looking at them. I have hired some of the top artists from around the world to design our first line and we will be launching by the end of April.

For the next two months I am going to post articles and info about all the behind the scenes work that goes into creating a clothing line on our site Follow us on Twitter and sign up for our RSS feed so you don't miss anything. Right now we have articles about Choosing the right business partners, How to properly contact artists, and Bios about all of us.

Attack of the Penis T-shirts

3 pennies earned

This all started with previously-mentioned Third Shifts' post about the first photo-realistic penis t-shirt in this series. We thought it was funny enough to warrant it's own place at SS&OS, but wanted to find the originator. The search brought up a lot more t-shirts with dicks on them than we expected and what would be the fun if we didn't share?

While not everything on the accompanying page is strictly NSFW, we figured we should cover it all up anyway just in case you don't want others to see you looking at penises. Just hover over a pic to see the magic happen.

No, you're not going to see any tshirts that say "Penis" instead of "Pepsi" nor the standard text jokes about penises. All of these tees actually have schlongs, or the likenesses of cocks on them. And of course these pictures link to their respective sources if you'd like more information.

(Speaking of which, if you didn't think a person could write a 3000 word essay on the pluralization of penis, you'd be sadly mistaken.)

Third Shift Clothing: March Madness Sale

1 penny earned

To quote the owner of Third Shift Clothing, Jason, basketball jargon intact:

In tradition with the real March Madness, Third Shift Clothing has come out with their annual March Madness Sale. This year's bracket buster sale has everything at 15 bucks. Just in time for the big tourney and a fresh tee for you to wear while you watch nothing but college basketball.

In layman terms, this would roughly translate to:

In tradition with the (big yearly college basketball tournament in March where people bet lots of money on which teams will win), Third Shift Clothing has (a corresponding annual) sale. This year's (excellently-priced) sale has everything at 15 bucks. Just in time for the (previously mentioned) tourney and a fresh tee for you to wear while you watch (some college basketball, and then reruns of Who's The Boss when you have no shot at winning the money you bet).

There, that should hopefully clear up everything for the sports-declined of our reader base. Also, it bears mentioning that even their hoodies are $15, which is a great price, and some of their hats are only $10. And if you're not into sports or basketball, don't be thrown -- these shirts are 100% perfect for any situation and not just for the basketball-savvy.
