OpenKnit An Open Source Clothing Printer

OpenKnit is an open source clothing printer, you can find the instructions to build your own on GitHub. I think this is a great idea, from the looks of it you just feed in the pattern and your measurements and a couple of hours later you have clothes.
Here is a video that explains is much better than I can hope to:

Pixel Parachute Pants!

Want to boogie like it’s 1990? Well you can’t touch these parachute pants! I don’t know where I’m going with this… Dream Nation on Etsy sells these custom Eco-Friendly bamboo fibre/organic cotton “Hammer Pants”, they might actually be “Hareem Pants” I’m not sure not being a fashion journalist. There are also a variety of Pixelated Leggings like the ones below:

Or if you prefer a little more green there are these ones:

This sleep tank from We Love Fine features my favorite Adventure Time character Lumpy Space Princess. You can also get a Jake one and a Finn one (See below). I didn’t even know what a sleep tank was before I saw this… They also do a while bunch of Adventure Time underwear and over wear for that matter…


Brazilian Clothing Retailer Displays Facebook Likes on Coat Hangers

Brazil retailer using Facebook likes… on its clothing hangers

In the cool but pointless category, Brazilian retailer C&A (Is that the same C&A that used to exist in the UK?) has started displaying the number of likes items of clothing have received on their Facebook page. I was lead to believe that Facebook wasn’t very big in Brazil and they all use Orkut but that’s besides the point.

As the venture beat article points out online shopping is usually based on the images, and pictures don’t tell you how well made an item is or how the fabric feels. Something that looks really nice can feel like it’s made from camel testicles.

Resistance is Fu-Tie-le

I like the concept behind this, but I’m afraid I don’t like the colour of the actual tie, sure it’s true to life and it’s a colour that I’m perfectly happy to be on my circuit boards, but I’m not sure I would like to wear it.

For the confused the above tie represents a resistor, the different bands tell you what the resistance of the resistor is, you can use the below chart to tell that the above resistor is 5600 Ohms +- 5%

Personally I prefer the other colours of resistor you get like this one:

Or maybe this one:

I assume you can make custom requests…

PacMan Dress

It saddens me that I can’t find a source for this dress, I saw it on Pinterest yesterday on my phone and I found it again by Googling for it. But I can’t for the life of me find anywhere that sells it…

What I have managed to find is a while bunch of other PacMan clothing:


The above dresses I found on Geekologie they are apparently part of a line of “Sexy PacMan” dresses available for $32 on 80’s Tees. Personally I’m more likely to be seen wearing this PacMan costume:

I also found a set of Pac Man paraphernalia on Trend-De-La-Creme like the below one by Alice McCall:

The Below shoes by Ben Sherman

This dress by Indiscretion:

Evangellion Clothing!

Are you fanatical about a 16 year old anime series about giant robots religion and philosophy that made absolutely no sense? Well you’ll be interested to know that you can wear your fanaticism to show the whole world how much you want to be Shinji, Asuka or Rei!  With the above cute Eva-1 Hoodie with obligitory cat ears you can even get the other Eva models too! Or you could look at some of the the other examples below. The Site is in Japanese but you can us Google translate to make sense of it.

I Wish This Mega Man Hoodie Was Real

Awesome Megaman Hoodie! Surely some one some where will make this? Capcom or some subsidiary clothing company needs tp get a hoard of sweatshop workers to start making these so fat geeks can buy them. Original hoodie design by Brendon Phillips which looks like Mega Mans “Costume”…
