Alfred Shaheen, man who brought Hawaiian shirts to the masses dies aged 86

By admin on January 6th, 2009

Alfred Shaheen, the man responsible for popularising the Hawaiian shirt died on the 22nd of December.

Taking on his parents’ business after returning from WWII Shaheen built up the company turning it into a million dollar enterprise with a group of highly skilled workers dubbed Alfred Shaheen’s City of Craftsmen.

The Hawaiian shirt or ‘Aloha’ shirt became popular on the islands as dress-down formal wear but it was Shaheen, with the help of stars like Elvis Presley, who helped extend the fashion for Hawaiian shirts across the globe. Check out our gallery to trace the history of the garment.

Back to the Future hoverboard on eBay

By admin on July 30th, 2008

If you still can’t get enough of Marty McFly, you can own the genuine hoverboard that was used in the film. Owning a piece of Hollywood memorabilia is always a pricy affair and this is no different, with the ebay auction currently at $30,000.

There’s also the question of what to do with it if you did win it. Do you frame it? Try to use it? Or just hold it close to your chest whilst watching the film on repeat? Choose what you’d do with it in the poll after the jump.

Bill Cosby wants you to buy his jumpers

By admin on June 4th, 2008

With the hippin’ and the hoppin’ and the bippin’ and the boppin’… I love Bill Cosby, even in his awful film Ghost Dad he is endearing. So why doesn’t anyone want his jumpers?
The NY Times describes the one in the middle as ‘the Saved by the Bell theme song in knitted form’ and they’re not wrong. Cosby has donated his jumpers to raise money for the educational organisation set up after the death of his son Ennis Cosby. The jumpers represent the pinnacle of ’80s excesses in knitwear at their fit-inducing best and as such I’m quite surprised no one has bid yet.
It might have something to do with the $5,000 starting price but hey, the postage is free!

Fundies: ‘the underwear built for two’

By admin on April 7th, 2008

fundies underwear for two.jpg
Essentially a large pair of pants, Fundies allow you to share undergarment space with a loved one; I’ve never seen anything quite like it before but they are up for grabs on eBay for $4.99 (link kind of nsfw). Why Dov Charney hasn’t picked up on this and decided to release a range of Fundies modelled by a pair skittish underlings I don’t know, it seems perfect for the brand.

If American Apparel decide to get in on the Fundies idea I definitely want full recognition though, perhaps in the form of a pair of gold lamé legging Fundies.
