weird shit's happenin'

O.K. I am sure you stumbled over some crazy shit while browsing the net and me too, I've seen my share, but the shop I discovered on Etsy by chance takes a cake! Have you ever seen something like this?? Hand made somewhere in Portland Oregon, USA:

Well sure, you may say: "hey, not too bad when it's freezing outside and the winds are blowing...", but wait 'till your neighbor sees you wearing it, he/she will declare you nuts. Gone gaga! I guess it would look better with a matching hat or just "a" hat for X-sakes!

Check out the names!! I am all for unique style and individuality, and if you can ditch the system in any way, go ahead, do it, but please don't go this way... it's on the ridiculous side!

Ha! But who am I? This Etsy seller's shop is called: "I made you a beard", that's right, you made a beard for 9 buyers since October 10th, not bad! Not bad at all! Especially at $35 -$38 a pop. Well, their 100% wool!

...and while you are at it: hangin' 'round the woods and stuff: buy a wood grain ring in silver!

'course: no offense to these very creative Etsy sellers...

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
