Seattle T-shirt maker capitalizes on Vikings’ muffed field goal try with ”Laces Out” message

SEATTLE – A business in Seattle’s Crown Hill neighborhood didn’t waste time cashing in on the Seahawks’ good fortune.

It’s offering a silk-screened shirt, just off the presses after Sunday’s game, that says, ”Laces Out.”

Too soon to tease Viking fans about their unexpected loss?

The phrase is a reference to Sunday’s gift to the Seahahwks, when Vikings kicker Blair Walsh attempted a laces-facing-his-foot, 27-yard, chip-shot field goal – and shanked it.

Owners of T-shirt maker,, came up with the idea for the shirt right after the game.

”We watch the game. We see what happens. Something fun that we’re all talking about,” said Jamie Munson of ”Then we put out the shirt and as you can see, I’m already wearing it. So the idea was just an idea yesterday. It happened and here we are printing them.”

Talking to Co.Design, a Patagonia spokesperson called climate change “a serious crisis” for its business. And while retailers like J.Crew, H&M, and Nordstrom decline to comment, the numbers speak for themselves. Uniqlo, H&M, and Gap all announced major seasonal shortfalls this year, and Macy’s is actually cutting more than 4,500 jobs following slumpish holiday sales, blaming 80% of its revenue shortcomings on cold-weather goods like jackets, hats, and scarves that just didn’t sell.

How a sweaty t-shirt gives clues about human disgust reactions

Psychologists at the University of Sussex have found that a person’s core disgust response is reduced if the source is within their own social group.

In the study published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team from the University of Sussex and colleagues from the University of St Andrews compared reactions of students to sweaty t-shirts bearing a logo from their own university as well as one from a separate institution.
The results showed that the reaction to ‘core disgust’ was reduced when students were asked to smell a sweaty t-shirt bearing their own university’s logo.
Dr John Drury, Reader in Social Psychology in the School of Psychology at the University of Sussex, explained: “This reduction in the response to core disgust from a stimulant from within a person’s own social group is significant because it helps us to understand how group behaviour becomes possible. Essentially, it frees people to cooperate with each other, and to work together effectively.”
The psychologists conducted two experiments. In the first, students from the University of Sussex were shown t-shirts bearing their own university’s logo as well as t-shirts bearing the logo of Brighton University. In the second experiment students from the University of St Andrews had to smell a sweaty t-shirt that either had a St Andrews logo, a Dundee University logo (a local separate university, equivalent to Brighton University in the first study) or no logo.

The Legend of Baron Raglan

Have you thanked your lucky starts for Field Marshal FitzRoy James Henry Somerset, the First Baron Raglan today? If you haven’t you probably should. Just stop whatever you are doing and take a moment, possibly even a knee if you feel it necessary. The debt of gratitude you owe him is enormous, the moment you take should be solemn yet joyous, for Baron Raglan helped invent your favorite fall garment-the Raglan. You know, the thing you wear under your shirt in baseball that your girlfriend keeps stealing? Yeah, that’s the one.

The legend of the First Baron Raglan is not the kind of thing you can make up. No really, it’s that weird. After some moderate early military successes he Joined The Duke of Wellington’s staff and distinguished himself in a number of the Duke’s campaigns from the siege of Burgos to the giddy Battle of Toulouse. Whilst serving on Wellington’s staff during the famous Battle of Waterloo he had to have his right arm amputated and immediately demanded to have it back.
