Closeknit clothing sells several unique tshirts. These shirts seem to be mainly southeast Asian inspired, both in graphics and in color schemes with a lot of bright reds, yellows, greens, and blues. A few of them also remind me of Lara Alberti‘s clock artwork. Finally, there are a few requisite coat-of-arms style designs with a bit of Thai design thrown in.

Wear your sexiness and class on your sleeve. Or, I guess, on your tie. The store also features similar ties with the likenesses of legends such as Johnny Cash, Jim Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix.

Sometimes you have to dress up, and for some of us that means wearing a tie. Well, if you’re like me then you hate the dressy stuff. So wear your tie and make an anti-tie statement, all while being a gigantic geek, with this tie. Yes, that’s right. It says “ties suck” in binary.

In honor of my recent trip to Glacier and Banff, I give you the latest and most stylish in fire retardant wildland firefighting gear. This shirt will not burn. Plus, it absorbs odor, so you can wear it for days without washing it. Of course, at this price you’re really only going to buy one if you’re using it.

Rigged is the most publicized queer clothing store on the internet. The goal of Rigged is to sell “original garments suitable for the female body, but with a masculine attitude.” The creator and designer of the line, Parisa Parnian, describes in an OurChart blog post why she quit her high-paying fashion job to start a clothing line for us. This blog post rang true with me – why did she do it? Because no one else had.
