Cooling Sweaters

“Who wants a summer sweater that makes you sweat?” says Betabrand Design Chief Cathy Ahn. “Beach wraps are a much-loved style, but heat and humidity can make them too toasty. Jade delivers a cooling effect that’s refreshingly real, thanks to the natural heat-reducing qualities of the stone.”
Online clothier Betabrand has just released the world’s coolest sweater. With thermoregulating green jade infused right into the knit, this garment is able to deliver a unique cooling effect that lets women enjoy sweater coziness in warmer temps.

Giza 45 Luxury Egyptian Cotton

Ayman and Tamer Nassar are spearheading the luxury Egyptian cotton industry as textile leaders on a micro and macro level.  Up until the mid-90s’, the private sector was prohibited from trading and exporting Egyptian cotton. Immediately following the liberalization of Egyptian cotton in 1994, the Nassar brothers co-founded Nassco Trading SAE and began purchasing Giza 45 and exporting it as raw cotton in 1995, quickly becoming one of Egypt’s leading cotton exporters.  By 1996, Ayman Nassar was known as a cotton-classing expert certified by the Cotton Arbitration and Testing General Organization (CATGO).

Social media exploded with pant protests, but conventional clothing companies couldn't react quickly enough. So crowdsourcing-based Betabrand leapt into action,  inviting hundreds of thousands of customers to help reinvent women's professional pants.  In just a few weeks, the online clothier had launched a brand-new line of its popular Dress Pant Yoga Pants featuring  pocketed styles.

Google Evil Empire

Google+ Closed Possibly Due to Evil Empire Development

Is Google an evil empire?  "Don't be evil" was a motto that was officially used within Google's corporate code of conduct.  In October 2015, Alphabet (the new Google corporate name) took "Do the right thing" as its motto instead.  Why did they replace "don't be evil".  When they say "do the right thing" does that mean do the right thing for the "company"?  Clearly a distinction between doing the right thing for the company and doing the right thing for users of the service.  Hey Google, maybe it is time for, "Do the right thing and don't be evil".

The following article is only somewhat relevant to fashion.  It is relevant to fashion due to the fact that we had thoroughly enjoyed Google+ and had spent a great deal of time posting to our fashion relevant pages and communities on the social network.  In fact, each blog post from this fashion blog was posted on Google plus.  Apparel Search is very disappointing that Google has shut down the service due to what appears to be a poorly reported security breach.

Warning: If you are interested in reading only about clothing, shoes, handbags, etc., this is NOT the article for you.  Skip this one, unless you are curious.  Again, this particle article is not really relevant to our typical topic of interest.

Google+ Is Closing

Another FAILED Google Experiment

Why did Google+ close?  Read on for a strong possibility of the reason.
