Brand Spotlight: Threadsmiths

If you're anything like me, you'll be attending a holiday party or two this season that's likely to get a little crazy.  Crazy holiday parties equal too many sweet treats and too much liquor.  And if you're unfortunate, some of those things might end up on your clothes.  Australian startup brand Threadsmiths has created a wearable alternative that's equally functional and stylish to aid in avoiding some wardrobe catastrophes this holiday season.  Their 100% cotton hydrophobic tees are completely stain-resistant.  You might be skeptical, but I literally had coffee thrown on me while wearing this tee, and it just bounced off!  I could even wipe it off with a towel, and there was no trace of it ever being there.  On top of this revolutionary design, the tee is just as tailored and comfortable as any designer tee on the market.  Threadsmiths is definitely on to something here. I'm officially their number one fan!
