Connection Made: Magnet Apparel

by Carlos J. Morales on December 27, 2012

Remember when I told you back in November that Magnet Apparel was an unique brand that focused on connectivity? It is now December,  I’ve tested the code and tried on the shirt, but is Magnet Apparel ready to connect with you in 2013?


First, let’s discuss the QR code that is stitched on the bottom left corner of each shirt. The concept alone is great idea, being able to connect with other Magnet Apparel wearers by scanning the custom QR code and creating  profile through their site truly separates them from other brands in the industry. However, when I tried to set a profile of my own I kept getting an error message at the username/password screen. I was kind of bummed out by this, but it could have been my phone acting up or something technical beyond my knowledge. With that being said, the QR code system when working is something worth looking into.

Now let’s talk t-shirts, shall we?

Base Jump” – It’s everything you would expect from a logo t-shirt, reasonably priced ($19.99), clean looking, and represents the brand well (it’s their logo after all). The t-shirt (size: small) was surprisingly loose fitting for a slim fit, which I personally enjoy. The print quality was also on point and wasn’t too thick.

Future Vintage Genesis” – The design itself, a playful version of Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam”, screams connectivity. I  love the robot hand on the front of the shirt (you can never go wrong with robots). The shirt had a similar fit to the “Base Jump” design, but the print quality was a little too cakey for me. Between the main graphic on the front and the spots printed around the shirt – it feels a bit heavy. By no means is this shirt unwearable, it is just not as comfortable as the logo shirt.

Overall, I think Magnet Apparel has a great concept with high quality threads. 2013 is right around the corner and I think there is going to be a lot of connections made. Hopefully, one of them will be you!

New Accessories from Southfresh!

by Heather Abbott on December 23, 2012

We mentioned not too long ago a new Fall line from clothing brand Southfresh and now they’re releasing a couple of new accessories, too.

Meet the Cima Desert bag and the Field Desert pouch – a collaboration between Southfresh and Arch. As the rest of the Southfresh line, these products are handmade in Italy.

The Cima is a waterproof top-loading backpack made of oil green PVC-coated fabric and premium leather with a desert camo interior.

It features a capacious main compartment that you can access via the roll-top or by the top-front zip. There is also a big back pocket with a soft touch interior that can fit a up to a 15″ laptop. You can find a similar and smaller pocket on the front, too. The drawstring closure allows you to fill up your bag to the brim with whatever you need. The details are also impressive; there product is finished with leather details and a desert camo patch with an embroidered Southfresh logo.

The Field  is an everyday use pouch that keeps your shoulders free.

It is also made of waterproof oil green PVC-coated fabric and premium leather with a desert camo interior. This pouch is perfect for fitting a compact camera, film rolls, a cellphone, or other personal necessities.

Both accessories were released in limited quantities on December 10th and are now available through the Southfresh online shop.

5 New Designs up at Lead and Light

Post image for 5 New Designs up at Lead and Light

These designs were actually released a couple of weeks ago but I kept forgetting to post them. I’m also not 100% on which 5 are new since there’s only 4 designs in the graphic, but there were 6 designs I couldn’t remember seeing before so I figured why not post them all since they’re all cool tees.

Post image for 20% off Gift Certificates up until Christmas Eve, it’s like buying free money!

Most shops can’t offer guaranteed Christmas delivery now, so it’s not surprising that gift certificates are starting to be pushed harder by stores.

RedBubble are offering a 20% discount on gift certificates with the coupon code GIFTCARD12 from now until 11:59 (PST) on Christmas Eve, so if you can’t decide on a gift for someone, or you’re just a Red Bubble fan that knows they’ll spend money there, this is decent way to get more bang for your buck.

They’re ridiculous, but I do think it would be kind of funny to have one or two of these framed on my wall as if they were fine works of art.
