…The Porsche Design Cayenne looks blackalicious?

Porsche Design Cayenne

The Porsche Cayman S Design Edition proved that the stunner from Stuttgart looks even better in tones of black, and apparently Porsche agreed, because they went on to create a Boxster S Design Edition, and now, a Cayenne GTS Design Edition.

The all black beauty gets special black striping on the doors and hood, along with 21-inch SportPlus wheels that are painted to match.

Inside, it’s plenty of carbon fiber and black leather to coddle and comfort the driver, and ‘Porsche Design Edition 3’ badging can be found both inside and out.

Porsche Design Accessories

The big selling point however is that in addition to the SUV, buyers get Porsche Design accessories that match, including a chronograph watch and a four piece luggage set.

Not fond of black?

That’s just too damn bad.

…PleaseDress.Me is tee-rific?

PleaseDress.Me

PleaseDress.Me is the ultimate t-shirt search engine.

Designed by Gary Vaynerchuk (of winelibrary.tv fame), AJ Vaynerchuk, and Joe Stump (lead architect for digg.com), PleaseDress.Me allows you to sift through the vast expanse of online t-shirts using searches by keyword/tag, color, price, or even random generation if you’re feeling especially indecisive.

    PleaseDressMe is a classic example of scratching ones own itch. AJ, Gary, and Joe love finding great new tees, but finding said tees wasn’t the easiest thing in the world. Rather than sifting through multiple websites [they] figured why not just go to one website that makes searching t-shirts easy? Once [they] came to that conclusion, Joe went right to coding and after a few calculated keystrokes [they] brought in Chris to make it pretty. The result is the simple, concise t-shirt search engine.

In addition to being a tee-rific resource for shirt enthusiasts, PleaseDress.Me is also a fantastic example of how to use Web 2.0 methods of promotion to get your product into the public eye.

PleaseDress.Me has an account on Twitter, a custom Firefox search box plugin, customizable widgets, an easy vendor upload process, a Facebook page, an open API, a send to a friend feature, badges for shirt vendors to display, and a full gamut of social bookmarking options, including Facebook, Digg, Pownce, Twitter, Delicious, and StumbleUpon.

So besides being a great example of how to promote a new website, does it actually work?

To test it out, I typed in the word “Ninja”, clicked Search, and was greeted with the following results:

Ninja

A ninja playing a tuba, a teenage mutant ninja turtle in a shredder, a ninja and pirate shirt, and smurfs acting like ninjas?

I’d say it works pretty damn well.

Give it a shot:


Each result features the price, a more info button, a StumbleUpon button, a Facebook button, and a Buy Now button. Clicking on a result’s more info button gives you that shirt’s chosen tags, as well as related shirts that you can view as well.

All in all, I’d say that it’s a fantastic service that makes searching for and actually finding shirts you’re looking for a quick and easy process, and that anyone looking for that perfect shirt to complete that perfect outfit should definitely check it out.

Now PleaseDress.Me!

…Poketo wallets are very unique?

Poketo

If you’re looking for a limited edition wallet that looks great and doesn’t take all of the current cash in your old wallet to buy, then look no further than Poketo. All of Poketo’s wallets are designed by over 70 emerging and independent artists from all across the globe, and are produced in very limited editions. As a special deal, they will even put together a surprise bag of wallets if you can’t decide on just one design or if you want to save even more cash while saving your sense of style in the process. Each online order also includes a matching badge/pin and artist bio. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Jackson.
