On a bit of a T-Shirt theme at the moment. A lot of blog reading recently and I found this on Sucker4Clothes is an idea from Jason Sadler. He's selling the upper half of his wardrobe for the entire year. Pay for each day is at face value, so January 1st is $1 and December 31st is $365. 

Clever marketing?

Flicking through the new issue of i-D on the train this afternoon and I saw an advert for wannabesociety - at first glance a clothing / accessory company, but with 10 Commandments...

The 10 Commandments of wannabesociety T-shirts

1. Be aware of the the power of the message
2. Be brave. The more courage - the more fun!
3. Think twice before you wear it:
A/ about the audience
B/ for what occasion
4. Don't underestimate your audience
5. Take it easy. Be relaxed.
6. Do not explain. Let people think.
7. The t-shirt should be clean.
8. Don't think of it as fashion.
9. Wear it at your own risk.
10. Set the 10th commandment yourself.

I've looked them up and it seems that you suggest a word that you 'want to be' and then it gets printed on a tee or any of their other accessories. There seem's to be a massive following worldwide, and after the mass of comments about Boxie 't-spoke' T-shirts on BNTL a few weeks ago, I wondered what people thought about wannabesociety?

I'm supposed to be packing up stuff to head back for the new term in Nottingham, but I've just come across loads of magazines that have been neglected at the bottom of my wardrobe for far too long.

Picked up my copy Sneaker Freaker # 11 and I've been reading this article on the role of sneakers in crime and convicting criminals.

Pretty interesting stuff if only for the opening paragraph which I'm sure a lot of people can relate to...

Sunday's are always pretty lazy, but today I took a stroll into town, and during my usual stop at the WHSmith library I came across a new magazine:

"wuw magazine is the smart little compact mag for the arts! Whatever u want (wuw) is a new lifestyle mag for people with vision, based in Brighton and ye'old London Town.

With pages full of Fashion, Graphics Illustration, Music, Fine Art, Photography and Politics. wuwmag sets itself apart from the standard magazine, by creating a new perspective on lifestyle and culture and giving people the opportunity to showcase their work to the masses! wuwmag is cram packed with innovative ideas and information. It seduces the eye and satisfies the mind."

This second issue has some nice features, an interview with Mumdance, Monsta Squad, and the piece that really caught my eye about the 'Flexible Love' Chair. Designed by a Taiwanese college student, it can seat up to 16 people !! More information at

Oh, and don't forget to check out the Monsta Squad Sale...
