This Garter Belt-like Accessory Will Keep Men’s Shirt Securely Tucked

I would like to think the trend of not tucking in shirt stems from the fact that it gets untucked as easily as it was tucked, and as every men will agree, that is a hell of an annoyance. But what if you really need to tuck it in, like with formal attires? Well, wear a inverted garter belt then. Don’t laugh. I am serious because that’s what the NV S-Holder essentially is. It comes in a set of two, one for each leg, and it works pretty much like the garter belts wore by women in the 50s/60s to hold up their stockings. However, unlike the women’s undergarment accessory which basically pull up the stockings, NS S-Holder keeps the shirt pulled down thus preventing it from being untucked.

Snappies Ditched Plastic For Leather, Made Snapback Hats Look Uber Classy

Snapback hat. It is either you are for or against it. Personally, I am not for snapbacks. Seriously, that crummy, plastic thingy is super ugly and that’s not to mention, it is totally uncomfy when you wear the hat backwards. Amazingly, despite the obvious shortfall, snapback hat’s design hasn’t changed much at all for like, forever. Even some expensive designer labels used cheap plastic for the snapback, which is kind of a reap off considering how much designer hats cost. But thanks to the righteousness in humanity, someone stood up and decided that enough is enough, and it is time for a change. And that change is known as Snappies Hats (or just Snappies).

If Only The Shark Teeth With Colors Could Be On This Pair Of P-51 Jordan 5…

If you have a thing for old fighter jets and love Nike sneakers – particularly, Jordans, well, then look out for this pair of new Air Jordan 5 retro kicks. Mind you, this ain’t no ordinary rebooted retro. It is a pair inspired by the classic American long-range, single-seater fighter bomber used back in WWII, the North American Aviation P-51 Mustang. Obviously, there’s not a lot you can do to a sneaker to make it look like a flying Mustang. You certainly don’t expect propellers on those kicks, much less wings or stabilizers, but it sure has something that will appeal to aviation enthusiasts: the iconic shark teeth. As far as the actual kicks are concerned, the shark teeth is not what you expect; it is presented as embossed on the leather wrapped midsole. It is really subtle.

Industrial Designer Turns Regular Shoe Into A Self-Lacing Shoe With LEGO

Not everyone can afford to dish out $200K for a high-tech self-lacing shoe. Hell, even 720 bucks is overly excessive for a pair of sneakers however high-tech it may be. So, what do you do when you really want a Back to the Future II self-lacing shoe? Cobble up one with LEGO, of course. Wait, what? Is that even possible? Well, as it turns out, it can be done by combining some LEGO elements with other materials – as demonstrated by industrial designer, Vimal Patel. Armed with a dremel and a hot glue, he managed to retrofit a LEGO-powered self-lacing mechanism onto a worn out shoe and had it working like the real-deal, albeit a little slower.

NASA Tech Enables This Japanese-made Jeans To Keep Warm And Cool

I live in a region where temperatures are more-than-warm most of the time which gives me a reason to ditched jeans in favor of shorts. Seriously, having a thick fabric wrapped around your legs in this area is crazy, but that may change with Kojima Genes x SF Project denim. Kojima Genes is a Japanese label and its Kojima Genes x SF Project denim is something of a technological advancement in apparel. How so? They are the first ever jeans made from space technology infused denim. Called OUTLAST, this advanced textile technology was originally developed by NASA to protect astronauts from the extreme temperature fluctuations while in outer space.

Swiss Watchmaker Created 100% Swiss Watch Made From Real Swiss Cheese

Luxury watches made of exotics and precious materials are not uncommon, but one independent Swiss watchmaker, H. Moser & Cie, has taken exotic to a new level of high by using, wait for it… real Swiss cheese. Wait, what? Yes, freaking real Swiss cheese it is. The edible milk derivative as we know it, being used on a timepiece. I know it sounds a little insane, but rest assure that the Swiss Mad Watch by H. Moser & Cie is as real as you and me, and it is also one of the rare Swiss timepiece that can actually claim to be 100% Swiss (the first in the market, btw).

Freaky Sneaks “Super Nintendo” Shoes Have Real Controller Buttons!

Freaker Sneaks is not shoe brand and that’s probably a good thing, or else this shoe customizer founded by U.K. born artist Jonny Barry wouldn’t be able to turn out shoes that you desired in your favorite, sometimes one-of-a-kind design.
