The “Endless T-Shirt” Begins to Become a Trend

A fashion trend that would make M. C. Escher nod in approval, Salvador Dalí's eyes light up, and Christopher Nolan feel déjà vu is beginning. The "endless t-shirt," as it's been dubbed, features a person wearing a t-shirt that bears the likeness of another person wearing a t-shirt that bears the likeness of the first person. A photo of Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling wearing a shirt with a picture of Macaulay Culkin in his child-star days caught the now adult Culkin's attention. In a humorous response, Culkin released a photo of himself wearing a t-shirt with the aforementioned picture of Gosling printed on it. Internet audiences have loved it, and have even photoshopped Gosling wearing a shirt with Culkin's response photo on it.  One, amusing, isolated incident does not make a trend, t...

New Sunglasses Connect to Your Smartphone So They Never Get Lost

In an industry where the topography is constantly shifting with each new wave and trend, it's a pretty big deal to have fashion critics claim that your new product will completely change the future of eyewear, which is precisely what they're saying about Tzurkuri. The Sydney-based business is currently manufacturing a kind of sunglass that can be tracked and located with asimple, mobile app so that they'll get lost ever again. At $350 a pair, the Tzurkuri shades aren't really quite available yet, but the company is taking a limited amount of preorders for $49 each, with a remaining $200 being charged once the shades ship out, which means excited techies/fashionistas can get $100 for being the first of their friends with geo-located sunglasses. It might seem like a steep price just fo...

Seattle Optometrist Office Ransacked by Thieves Who Steal $60,000 Worth in Eyewear

The three men who broke into a Seattle optometrist's office this past week may not have realized that a total of nine surveillance cameras were silently recording everything they did. The burglars ransacked Dr. Jeanette Pham's office, ultimately getting away with merchandise worth almost $60,000 in total. The videos have been released to local news channel KING 5 in hopes that the thieves will be identified and caught. Naturally, Dr. Pham is upset over the incident. "We're here to serve people, make sure they can see well, and I can't believe someone can come in and take everything away from me," she said, adding that there have been an "endless string" of break-ins at the building, which is owned by the Seattle Housing Authority. The video shows the three men ransacking the store --...

Pentagon To Review Military Hairstyle Restrictions For Biased and Offensive Language

In a controversial move, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel asked the military to ban cornrows, dreadlocks, and twist hairstyles.

The announcement and official review comes after 16 formal complaints and a petition with over 10,000 signatures, The Washington Post continues. "Within the next 30 days, each service will review the definitions of authorized and ...
