The fantastic new Nova Reversible Hoodie for men, a pair of prototype hoodies for women, and an aqua-patriot caption contest for all all-American Americans (and everyone else).
Contrary to popular belief, San Francisco is no tropical paradise during the summer. In fact, we can barely even type this sentence — our fingers are partially frozen, and our keyboard is barely visible through the thick mist. In other words, it’s a typical July afternoon.
Suffice it to say, we’re grateful for a little relief wherever we can find it. That’s the inspiration behind our new Nova Reversible Hoodie, a welcome burst of sunshiny warm colors in our otherwise dreary, depressing day.
Lest you think we’re exaggerating, consider the following facts about San Francisco’s cold, gray season of gloom:
The city adds extra Prozac and espresso grounds to the municipal water supply.
Public swimming pools are filled with piping-hot stew.
The Transamerica Pyramid experiences up to 300 feet of shrinkage.
The bears of the Castro go into hibernation.
Kenny Rogers and his gray-bearded brethren enjoy fog-shrouded invisibility.
Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” He also reportedly exclaimed, “Great Scott! It feels like a nor’easter straight up my keister!”
Thank goodness the Nova Reversible Hoodie offers a lone bright spot in this unrelenting misery. It’s made from water-repellent Japanese nylon and features underarm mesh gussets for breathability, plus raglan sleeves for comfort and mobility. Best of all, if you find your mood brightening too quickly, simply turn the hoodie inside out to reveal its dark, no-nonsense side.
Think Tank Update: Two New Women’s Hoodies
The Betabrand Think Tank has gotten decidedly hoodie-centric of late. Last week, we introduced the Little Red Riding Hoodie. Today, we unveil the Women’s Reversible Disco Hoodie, a slimmer, more form-fitting version of our original Disco Hoodie.
And here’s the first photo of our Women’s Executive Hoodie, now in development. Notice how remarkably relaxed this CEO appears to be, even as she reviews her lengthy indictment and ponders fleeing to Brazil. (That’s the power of ultra-comfy wool!)
We’d love your feedback on these Think Tank prototypes. You can leave comments (and sign up for e-mail alerts) on each product page.
