Justin Bieber Tour Sweatshirt

Global superstar Justin Bieber has made chart history as the first artist ever to tally new No. 1s on the Hot 100 in back-to-back weeks. The "Despacito" Remix and the DJ Khaled-collaboration "I'm The One" each debuted atop the Hot 100 in consecutive weeks, becoming Bieber's fourth and fifth No. 1 singles. Justin's Purpose album - released on November 13, 2015 - opened at #1 in over 100 countries around the world, has sold over 10 million copies globally to date, and garnered a 2016 Grammy nomination for Album Of The Year. Purpose shattered global streaming records and has yielded three consecutive #1 singles in the US - "What Do You Mean," "Sorry," and "Love Yourself," which received a Grammy nomination for Record Of The Year. In late 2015, all three tracks landed at #1, #2 and #3 on the UK singles chart, surpassing a record previously held by The Beatles and making Bieber the artist to ever accomplish such a feat. In February 2016, Justin won his first Grammy: Best Dance Song for the Purpose track "Where Are You Now." Justin Bieber is the first artist to reach over 10 Billion views on VEVO. In 2014, Justin was ranked by Twitter as the #1 most tweeted about musical artist of the year. He has released five number-one albums to-date and has starred in two films, Never Say Never (2011) and Believe (2013). In 2011, he was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy. In 2013, Bieber received a Diamond award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to recognize his single "Baby" as the best-selling digital song of all-time with over 10 million copies sold.

MAXIM Hot 100 for 2017

Hailey Baldwin Maxim Hot 100 CoverThe MAXIM Hot 100 issue hit newsstands Tuesday, May 30th 2017 with Hailey Baldwin leading the pack as this year’s cover star. The selection process for the Hot 100 issue is an annual search for not only the world’s most traditionally beautiful women, but those who are breaking the mold and pushing boundaries. For this year’s Hot 100, Maxim Magazine looked for beautiful and bold women who use their platforms – whether Instagram or celebrity megaphone – to define and express themselves. They are actresses, athletes, musicians, and models, yes, but also brand builders, entrepreneurs, and voices of a generation. What they have in common is that they are changing the conversation in their fields, from film, TV, and music, to social media and competitive sports.

The 2017 Maxim Hot 100 is comprised of fourteen (14) categories including (but not limited to) ones of the moment such as The Sister Acts and The Baywatch Babes to The Good Sports and modern day Sirens, Sweethearts and All Stars with a collage of up-and-coming newbies featured in The New Guard and the Multi-Hyphenates (aka triple threats). Physical beauty is only one part of being sexy, how they are defining and expressing themselves is what makes them worthy of inclusion in Maxim’s Hot 100 list.

California Cowboy Men's Shirts

California Cowboy, the brand built upon the rebellious, free thinking "Cowboy" lifestyle of California natives has teamed up with leading online men's retailer,  Huckberry for a digital pop up shopping event starting 5/30/17 through 6/6/17. 
California Cowboy Clothes
Just in time for summer and pool party season, the California Cowboy High Water shirt is everything we always knew the Aloha Shirt would be and more. No billowy fits here, just a meticulously tailored, incredibly soft terry-lined shirt hand sewn in Santa Ana, California and splashed with unique patterns printed from original hand-painted art. Because just making the smoothest short sleeve we've seen in years would be boring, the SF-based Cowboys have hidden enough features in this summer's silver bullet to make James Bond blush: A waterproof dry pocket, secure sunglasses loop, an interior pocket for when you're wearing it as an overshirt - even a dump pocket on the back for your beverage of choice. Like its namesake Hunter S. Thompson, the biggest Hawaiian shirt fanatic of all time, The High Water is a little out of control - and we like it. Members of Huckberry will receive 10% off the California Cowboy High Water ($114.99, https://huckberry.com)

Sheep Wool Grades

Sheep’s Wool Grades are important to consumers as well as the fashion industry.  The more you know about the various options of wool the better.  We all know many of the benefits of wool, but we should also have a general understanding of the various grades of wool.
Wool Grades
Wool grades are selected by clothing designers to suit the needs of the products being developed. For example, a high-end luxury wool scarf for a super model may require a different grade of wool than a thick & heavy pea coat for a fisherman.  Different wool grades offer different fiber lengths, fiber thicknesses and other properties.  The type of wool used for a garment or fashion accessory is decided based on different criteria.

Benefits of Wool

We all know that wool is awesome but we may not all be sure "why".  Let's take a few moments to learn more about why is so often used in fashion.  Our industry loves making wool coats, wool sweaters, wool pants, wool socks, hats, gloves, scarves, and the list goes on and on.  Their must be a good reason that so much clothes is produced with wool fiber and fabrics.

Some Benefits of Wool

  • Resists wrinkles - wool springs back quickly
  • Resists soiling - because the fiber is complex
  • Is durable - multi-part fiber resists wear
  • Repels moisture - fiber sheds water
  • Retains shape - resilient fibers return to size
  • Resists flames - fibers will not support combustion
  • Is comfortable in all seasons - keeps layer of air next to skin
Benefits of Wool
We each have our favorite reason for wearing wool clothing.  Mine happens to be the fiber absorbency.  It amazes me that when wearing wool clothes the garment can maintain warmth even when wet.  Do you know how this works? Read on and learn why...

America Is Not The Same Without Me

An Empowering Movement Enters the Fashion World

America Is Not The Same Without Me
America Is Not The Same Without Me Aims to Unify America Through Fashion 

America Is Not the Same Without Me is a fashion movement that embraces uniqueness, diversity and inclusion and empowers each individual to make a difference. The movement promotes pride in the impact that we all bring to our country, without bias towards age, race, sex, religion, orientation or lifestyle.

America Is Not The Same Without Me. The capsule collection of caps and t-shirts for men and women, is an expression of freedom, uniqueness and inclusion.

As an extension of the movement, each purchase makes a difference by supporting a non-profit initiative. When one buys online at www.americaisnotthesamewithoutme.com, America Is Not The Same Without Me will donate 10% of the sale from that purchase towards the charity of his or her choice, such as Lady Gaga’s Born This Way, Girl Up, No More, etc. 

The passion behind the movement comes from, Milano-based fashion designer, Rosa Clandestino whose culturally diverse upbringing and love for America inspired her creations. Born in the U.S. to exiled parents, Clandestino has created a message we can all stand behind.  
America Is Not The Same Without Me T-shirt
America Is Not The Same Without Me embraces the modern American dream – anyone, no matter your sexual orientation, religion, race or whatever makes you unique is absolutely essential, because America is stronger when we are woven together.

Forget plain blue jeans and lookalike tees. Former Ford model Irina Ovrutsky designs funky clothes for toddlers to tweens and sells them in her online boutique Lola and the Boys – named after her 10-year-old daughter and younger sons. 

From $29 boys’ harem pants covered in stars to a $51 satin bomber jacket featuring a unicorn surrounded by flowers and butterflies, the collection is as unique as each child – and just as fun.

Luquafleece Functional Cooling Vests

With higher outdoor temperatures or increasing skin temperature during sports or work activity, the water molecules firmly bound inside the functional cooling clothing absorb the thermal energy, evaporate from the large surface of the three-dimensional nonwoven structure and thereby cool down the wearer. The body sweats less and thereby saves energy that would usually be needed for thermoregulation. External cooling can therefore provide an increase in performance of up to ten percent in hot conditions.

Humans are born runners. Evolution once gave us the ability to overcome the distance of many kilometers through the hot savannas of Africa. In addition to the upright posture of the body and head and the optimized mechanics of legs and feet, cooling by millions of sweat glands plays a key role. Under extreme stress, they can release about one liter of sweat per hour and cool down the body by evaporation.
Cooling Vests
This limits our performance even at moderate outdoor temperatures. Athletes as well as workers and many other people worldwide who are exposed to high temperatures are therefore now using active functional cooling clothing. Thanks to innovative materials, this pro­vides evaporative cooling which is individually dosable and lasts for hours. The functional cooling textiles of the E.COOLINE and IDENIXX brands, incorporating the spe­cially developed superabsorbent nonwoven fabric from BASF, offer a mobile air conditioning system to wear which effectively supports the cooling system of the human body.

 Cooling vests, for example, are easy to use and can be worn like any other item of clothing once being activated by “charging” with water. The water enters the active layer – the Luquafleece® from BASF – after being rapidly absorbed and distributed through a bacteriostatic textile fabric. “The fibers of this nonwoven fabric are coated with superabsorbent polymers (SAP) through a special technology. They absorb the water in a few seconds and retain it,” explains the expert Norbert Heidinger of BASF New Business GmbH, who markets the material.

Like a fishing net, the polymer network of the superab­sorber traps increasing numbers of water particles until its elastic restoring forces compensate the osmotic forces of the prevailing concentration gradient. In this way Luquafleece® can absorb ten times its weight in water and retain it so firmly, that the functional textiles are dry on the surface.

Functional cooling textiles of core sports and occupational safety brands use a special superabsorber fleece from BASF.

Luquafleece® - the superabsorbent fabric

Luquafleece® is produced by applying the starting materials directly onto the nonwoven fibers and only then polymerizing them to create the superabsorber. This stable combination is the key factor for the long-term applications in moisture-regulating office chairs.
  • Air permeable
  • Efficient climate control
  • Immobilized SAP – no release of powder
  • Easily combined with other materials (such as textile, nonwoven and film)
  • Ensured long term stability
  • Light weight performance product
What advantages offers the BASF product Luquafleece® for you?

In this joint project, it was particularly important for us to obtain a washable cooling product which is also hard-wearing and hygienic. The three-dimensional nonwoven fabric with its special fiber structure also offers an enormously large surface area capa­ble of delivering 600 watts per liter of cooling energy through the evaporating water. Through our “cool to go” principle, the material generates a rapid and perceptible cooling effect even in extreme environmental conditions.

Self-Buttoning Shirts Simplifies Dressing with Magnets

Dress Shirt Magnets
We have all had one of those mornings. From the moment you open your eyes, everything that can go wrong does. You get shampoo in your eye in the shower, toothpaste and coffee drip down the front of your shirt and then the dog chews up one of the shoes you were planning on wearing. On days like this it would be really useful to have clothes that had the power to dress you themselves ­ anything to save a few precious minutes so you can get out the door somewhat on time. MagnaReady has created a line of button down dress shirts that do. Simply slip your arms in the sleeves and you¹re done, no messing with buttons.

MagnaReady® dress shirts are wrinkle-free and stain resistant with barrel cuffs and a spread collar. For even more convenience they are also machine washable. Simply press the shirt closed so the magnets are stuck to each other and the shirt will tumble around the wash cycle without attaching to the machine. 

MagnaReady® men’s dress shirts are available in a variety of patterns and solids. MagnaReady® women’s shirts are available in white and stripes. The MSRP for the MagnaReady® shirt is $64.95 or two shirts for $119.00 with free shipping. For more information visit: www.magnaready.com.
