…It’s Website Wednesday: Naked & Angry?

Naked & Angry

Naked & Angry is skinnyCorp’s latest venture (the guys behind Threadless) and they’re hoping to take Threadless’ success and expand it into other areas of design.

Their stated goal of Naked & Angry is “to create high quality products from patterns submitted and chosen by the brand’s audience”.

    Anyone can come to Naked & Angry and submit a pattern design to be voted on by other Naked & Angry users. The design will be scored for 14 days at which time it will be given a final score. The highest scoring designs will be manufactured and products will be created inspired by the patterns. The winners will receive a $750 cash prize and 1 free Naked & Angry item.

Their first series of objects was a set of silk neckties, and they’ve now moved on to hand screened wallcoverings, so you can see that the product line is going to be diverse. Apparently their plans include everything from ties and tops to pillows and belts to socks and sweaters to wallpaper, so if you can put a pattern on it, Naked & Angry will turn it into a competition.

Naked & Angry Ties

New patterns will be chosen every season, and the goal is 5-15 various new items at a time.

Will Naked & Angry ever equal the success of Threadless?

My guess would be no, because I can’t imagine that the market for neckties and wallpaper is nearly as big as the market for t-shirts, but regardless, it seems like a great idea, and a great place to check out if you’re looking for something really unique with a handmade touch.

…Lamborghini is helping to celebrate Christmas?

Lamborghini Christmas Collection

Spend the season with the bull with this limited edition Lamborghini Christmas Collection.

Featuring three baubles “finished in a special orange glaze, Arancio Borealis, on of four colours in which Lamborghini’s super lightweight car, the Gallardo Superleggera, was launched earlier this year” as well as a set of slow-burning candles in matching orange with the Lamborghini shield imprinted on the side, it’ll easily set the mood for some automotive lovin’.

Just wait till you see what’s in the stocking…

…Baseball tickets are tricky?

Baseball Seats

As baseball season begins, it’s once again time to break out your negotiation skills if you want to get into a game, and you don’t want to sit in the nosebleeds. To help your quest, Consumerist sat down with a former season/group ticket representative, and came up with a list of ten tricks (and one bonus trick) to score a seat. With tips like “Buy odd numbers of tickets” and “Go alone, sit near the dugout”, these might not be good for the family outing, but for the die hard fan who just wants to watch his team play from as good of a location as possible, they’re indispensable bits of knowledge to keep in mind. Game on.
