I can't afford this stuff (note: I don't know what it costs... but I'm sure I can't afford it), but I am weirdly attracted to Marc Jacobs/Disney's Alice in Wonderland-inspired capsule collection...

Innnteresting.

2015-05-19-innnteresting

I had actually assumed this was an April Fool's Day joke, but apparently it really happened: earlier this spring, Marvel teamed up with the subscription-clothing site Five Four Clothing to produce a line of goofy-looking clothing inspired by their Avengers comics...

I covet.

2014-11-25-i-covet

I'm not a big fan of H.G. Wells's 1895 novel The Time Machine, but I am totally in love with the many and varied cover images it has inspired. Seriously, the story has been graced with some...

Holiday Gift Guide: Kate Beaton t-shirts

2013-12-03-holiday-gift-guide-kate-beaton-tshirts

This year we're doing our Wordcandy-approved holiday gift list a little differently: we're going to put together a series of eight mini posts, each featuring a different gift idea. Like always, we're way late with these suggestions (our sincerest apologies to our Hanukkah-celebrating readers), but at least all of our suggestions are well under fifty bucks...

JAWS... for plankton

2013-08-29-jaws-for-plankton

I love everything about this "Moby" t-shirt by artist Terry Fan. I like the Jaws shout-out, I like the idea of a rage-filled whale, and I even like the price ($22, which isn't bad for that level of awesome)...

Threadless is currently holding one of their frequent sales, so if you're in the market for this t-shirt it's available in a wide variety of guys' sizes for a mere $12.95...

Ridiculously adorable... but also just ridiculous

I spend a lot of time thinking about punctuation, so I covet these Kate Spade Air Quote Mittens with a fiery passion. Sadly, I would need these gloves to be at least 75% off before I would even c...
