You may have seen the 100 Year Hoodie before, but make no mistake because, this one here is different. Way different. This piece here, though still referred to as “hoodie,” is essentially a jacket and it is fashioned from 100 percent Kevlar. Yes. You heard that right.

DJ Chris Holmes may not a celebrity like Sir Paul McCartney, but he certainly knows how to keep paparazzi from snapping unauthorized images of him or whoever who wears his brilliant invention which he refers to as Flashback Anti-Paparazzi Hoodie.

When the cold gets a little too cool for comfort, you can either pack yourself up like a sandwich or you could go with fashionable, lightweight heated jackets like those from Utah-based startup, Ravean.

This Is Optimus Prime Souped Up By A Bathing Ape And It Looks Awesome

the classic Optimus Prime sheds its red/blue with flame design as part of the Transformers x A Bathing Ape 2014 Capsule Collection, which was announced to coincide with the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction in Japan on August 8, which is kind of weird that the the collaboration did not base on the silverscreen version of Transformers. perhaps, old school is more in favor in Japan? that said, this Capsule Collection may not necessary appeal to new found fans of Transformers. anyways, the Prime here is known as Transformers MP-10 Convoy Bape Version, which sees Optimus Prime garbed in A Bathing Ape green, accented with the Japanese street wear brand’s signature camo pattern in green, which in our humble opinion, looks way more sleek than the original red/blue prime mover. the toy here, is of course, based on Japanese toy company TOMY’s classic Prime figure, which you may have already see in some of your local toy stores.

Audio Engineer’s Hoodie Has Its Hood Made From Speaker Fabric

we can’t think of a reason why would anyone need to wear a pair of headphones over a hoodie instead of under it. while most hoodie should be large enough to accommodate most headphones, it may not be the case if you happen to have a big-ass headphones, or perhaps your profession, such as those of a DJ and audio engineer, calls for an unadulterated audio experience. depending on the thickness of hood’s material, having the audio cans over the hood though convenient, may muffle the audio which prompted sound engineer Nic Pope to rethink how a hoodie should be for folks like him and the result is the Audio Engineer’s Hoodie.
