Fashion With A Cause

I found this t-shirt on Clothing for Charity, a site that combines good will and handmade goods. All designers whose work is featured on the site donate a substantial portion of their profits to a charity. This particular t-shirt's designer is raising money for the Red Cross. So far the site's offerings are a little minimal but their mission is a good one so check 'em out every so often if you don't see any must haves right now.

At Johnny Cupcakes the order of the day is, well, cupcakes. Although this trend has mostly been popular with the ladies, Johnny Cupcakes hasn't forgotten the gents. They've added masculine flare crossing the skull and cross bones image with their namesake icon in the graphic tee on the left. On their site you'll also find some bags and wallets and even a pretty sweet skate deck.

I *heart* this anatomically correct fleece by Saltlick -- purveyors of hand stitched tees and jackets for dudes, ladies and even kids and pets. In addition to their anatomy themed collection they've got road trip stuff, space rockets and luchadors. They also even accept requests for custom work.

If your kitchen is still outfitted with hand-me-down and thrift store salvaged glassware it may be time for an upgrade. Hunter Glass can help you out with their selection of etched pitchers, tumblers, and shot glasses. No dainty floral patterns here. Hunter Glass is all about sharks, flames, and even a little Jimi Hendrix.

Gerson Curse is an essential stop when shopping for cool neckties. Designs include molecules of cocaine and caffeine, geometric shapes and the ever-popular deer owl thing. My favorite is the dinosaur illustration on the left. Most of these babies will only set you back about $10! You can't even get a nice new tie at that price.
