Heavy Metal and Embroidery….seriously…

Who said embroidery was for little old ladies without anything better to do? Check this out…The heavy metal band Throne just released the first every frame by frame music video done with nothing but embroidery.

Our friends at Wilcom said in their blog post on this endeavor “With over 3000 individually stitched frames and an estimate of around 45 million individual stitches, the project was completed on an extremely tight schedule with an allocated time period of six months and an ironclad screening deadline of May 12th.”

Even if you are not a fan of heavy metal the results are amazing.

Get the full story on this project here. It is worth the read through.

Authentic Pigment Updates Its Look

AP old logoYou might recognize this logo. In fact some where in your tee shirt collection you probably have an Authentic Pigment tee. Hang on to it…the label could become a collectors item as Authentic Pigment has just undergone a branding update.

The quality hasn’t changed just the look of the label. Authentic Pigment kept their Original Resort Tee’s and Sweatshirts and added a new line of XtraFine 5oz Combed Ringspun Cotton tee’s and tanks as well as new French Terry Sweatshirts and Hoodies. All with an updated, modern fit that cuts closer to the body for a more pulled together look. And you will love the color pallet: indigos, neons, pastels, industrials, and hues taken right from mother nature

We just got some samples here at the shop so next time you are in be sure to ask for a sneak peak. Another great alternative for your summer tee wardrobe.

Hoodie Time

Yes it is the middle of July but it is never too soon to start thinking about your Fall apparel needs. Here is a video of some of the newest hoodie styles on the market for your school, club, team, or corporate group.

We are fascinated by Hoodie #2 and the built in face mask. Which is your favorite?

Happy 4th of July 2014

Well, we have no clue where June went and as you can see from lack of blog posts we were busy. So thank you to all our customers who made June fly by here at the shop.

We will be closing today at 2:00 pm and reopening on Monday July 7th to catch our breaths and enjoy some time with our families. We hope you enjoy your celebrations and stay tuned for new stuff on the blog later in the month.

It Is All About Details

Golf shirts are not just about golfing any more. We are seeing a lot of different types of businesses using these comfortable, lightweight, moisture wicking shirts for their uniforms. From country club ground crews, to restaurant waitstaff, to on the road salesmen these shirts are a great option for the warm weather.

We just received several new samples from Adidas, Nike, and Charles River with some brand new colors and details.

Take a peak at these from Adidas.

All of these shirts offer great details such as contrasting stitching, color blocking, and subtle but elegant fabric pattern.

Sometimes it is hard to see all these details on line or in the catalogs so feel free to stop by the shop and have a look. We think you will be surprised by some new options on the old classics.

Live Lids

What do you think of the idea of a logo that changes every 20 seconds or so…for your hat?
Interesting concept huh?

The question is would you wear it? Even if you don’t like it and wouldn’t be caught dead in it you have to admit technology has come a long way.

You can’t go wrong with several in your closet.

Looking for a way to use a white button down for your next event? Try this style tip. Add a small logo or detail that represents the event and place it on the cuff or the back just below the collar. Layer the white shirt over a base layer to create a cohesive look. Take it a step further and make it so the base layer can be whatever suits each person and will let their individuality shine through.Either way the white shirt will bring it all together and make everyone look great.
