Thermochromatic T-Shirts- 07.01.08

aatherma.jpgAmerican Apparel Thermochromatic Sheer Jersey T-Shirt!!! I know this is going to sound pretty silly, but first i went over to American Apparel because i was in disbelief that they are making Oxford Shirts… and quickly got distracted by the idea of heat-colorchanging/mood shirts! At which point, Linhchi quickly caught me up that they were bringing the 80s/90s back - and somehow i totally missed that trend as a little kid… but i want one! To play with? Work out in?

And then we hit up Wikipedia - so, catch up on Hypercolor: “Hypercolor was a line of clothing, mainly T-shirts and shorts, that changed color with heat. They were manufactured by Generra (now a division of Public Clothing Company) and marketed in the United States as Generra Hypercolor or Generra Hypergrafix and outside the US as Global Hypercolor. They contained a thermochromic (temperature sensitive) pigment made by Matsui Shikiso Chemical of Japan, that changed between two colors-one when cold, one when warm. The shirts were produced with several color change choices from the late 1980s until the early 1990s. Unfortunately the effect could easily be permanently damaged, particularly when the clothing was placed in a hotter than recommended wash.” and on vaguer research, read about Thermochromism (think mood ring tech)…

OH - and see the video of the AA girl microwaving the shirt to white, then wearing it into the freezer!

5 Notes

I love these shirts I bought two of them from Moody Teez online and the were like 10 bucks cheaper and are awesome! I know they said something about coming up with an infant and maternity line too. I’m anxious what else. I would go to moodyteez.com for the shirts they are the same thing but cheeper.

I really enjoyed the girl in the fridge. Thought that she was going to give us her bodyfigure on the shirt, though. :)
