Created by Falyon Wearable Tech, the SDJ-02 Self-drying Jacket is, as denoted by the jacket’s model name, the second version.

This Gorgeous Chunky Diver Watch Has A Big-ass Interchangeable Bezel

Bear with me for a while for I maybe a little biased here. You see, like many modern homo sapiens, I have a penchant for wrist worn timepiece – particularly, those big-ass wrist watches and although I may not take to the deep blue as much (say hi to the sharks for me), I do appreciate quality diving timepieces as much as any regular diver. While divers love them for its practical intents, I just love the fact that it is huge and uncomplicated (unlike aviation examples). So, naturally, when a hat tip on a big, chunky diving watch called Heavy Armor from Hong Kong-based watchmaker, DELTAt (pronounced as ‘delta’ ’t’) dropped in our inbox, I knew I have to talk about it here.

Reebok Savagely Poked Fun At Nordstrom’s $425 Mud-coated Jeans

Thanks to the Internet, we are starting to find out that businesses do have a sense of humor. Wendy’s is a good example, but today, it is not about Wendy’s.

Apparently, in response to Nordstrom’s ‘sensational’ jeans that had the honor of being lambasted by celebrities like Mike Rowe, Reebok has “introduced” an “authentic sweat shirt,” which you may have guessed it, is literally a shirt stains with sweat.

Reebok Announced New Alien-inspired Kicks Suitable For Both Sexes

On contrary to some sick minded Alien fans, the most iconic scene of Alien franchise is not the gruesome scene of tiny alien bursting out of someone’s guts, but it was the one where Ellen Ripley (played by Sigourney Weaver) took on the Queen Alien in an epic Power Loader versus acid-spewing, mouth-in-mouth space creature battle. And it was this scene which the “redesigned” kicks were based on and the sporting company announced not one, but two pairs of Alien sneakers, appropriately named Reebok Alien Stomper ‘Final Battle’ Double-Pack.
