Soft Touch Reviews: Oddica ‘Ghost Cameras’ Hoodie

Y’know, despite being a blog about arm-hiding, I’d only ever received one bit of long-sleeved clothing from a company, and I’d never received a hoodie, the item of clothing that this blog built its niche upon (before I sold out and started reviewing tees). That changed on Tuesday when I got a hoodie in the mail from the much-loved people at Oddica.

I was the recipient of the Ghost Cameras hoodie, which was great since I said it was my favourite. I just love the design by Gary Gao, the detailed sketch-work on the cameras contrast really well with the rounded cartoon style of the ghosts/souls, and the lack of colour is most likely a reference to the early sepia-toned days of photography (and one of the least used auto-settings on digital cameras).

The hoodie is printed on an American Apparel pullover hoodie, the first AA hoodie I’ve received/bought, and I really like it. Warm, soft and comfortable, yet still not that heavy. So now when I see a hoodie printed on AA I’ll be able to endorse it without worrying about the quality of the product.

Costiness=$38 (Shipping is the same as for tees even though hoodies obviously weigh more) URL

Oddica have also added a couple of new sleeved styles to two popular designs. The ‘Snailbot’ is now available as a ‘waffle thermal‘ and the ‘Tape Bird’ is now available as a zip-up hoodie.

Lots of pictures (including the return of pictures taken against the bathroom mirror!) after the jump.
