37 Celsius-98.6 Fahrenheit
This is my concept for the Loves Zip up hoodies competition. I wanted to stay away from the image-splitting solution so the inspiration for this design was the actual function of the hoodie itself as a temperature regulator while adding the zip up feature as a "gauge" of sorts. Like a manual mercury bar.
The idea is to mimic a thermometer, zipping up or down to whatever degree of temperature to create a silly but amusing interaction between the garment and the owner.
The tee version could have the actual mercury bar going up to 98.6 degrees fahrenheit/ 37 celsius, to suggest normal human temperature.
I've submitted 2 versions, a simple 1 color example for those who prefer simpler designs and a colored version with some simple (yet exaggerated) graphic icons to give the design some life.
Zip up a notch if it's too cold, zip one down if it's too hawt!
awesome both ideas are great!!!
instant classic, gonna print for sure ;) $5
Color version please, this is beyond a print for you dude!
I can't wait for people to be able to tell the temperature by how much/little my hoodie is zipped up.
5$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ degrees hoooot.
I love it! If only the zipper could be red... :P Color please!

wonder if it could be made with a red zipper?
I doubt it but it would be SO rad!
You're the best. Period.
Best Zip design yet. I want to be as good as you.
Wow. I've been doing something a bit similar in concept. I love yours too, though. Color version please!
as someone who lives part time in Europe, part time in the US, I love this!
great concept and execution
What a wonderful idea. I like both versions!
It'd be even cooler if they could make the tab of the zipper red.
love - it!
FREAKIN COOOL you deserve to win (Y)
Winner.... you are The Best!!!!! $5
Well done :)
the thermometer is upside down.......
Color version is amazing.
a red zip would be perfect with this.

This is hot...and cool!! 5$
Incredibly clever and original concept. Nicely done!
veeeeeeeeery very very smart!! loving it!!
it's gettin hot in here
thank you for the kind comments!
The red zipper wouldn't make any sense unless the design is flipped upside down as well.
I think some people missed the point.
best I've seen so far! good luck!
my favorite for this competition $5
Some cold day, I will zip this up all the way up to minus 5$
i love the whole style and colors! 5
Very, very, very clever.
Classic version = better. Hands down! Good stuff!
THE BEST for this comp!! Print Classic!!!!!! 5$$$$$
this is so brilliant
Clever. I like the color version.
simply amazing!!! 5$$$ print!!
This is my favorite from the Zip Hoody competition thus far. Wit for the win!
finally!!! Finally I don't need to google fahrenheit into celsius anymore!!! 5$
This is so Fully UnZipped. ;)
This is clever, clever, clever - and dead cute.
Sweet. Deceptively simple design at its best!
Sweet design, hopefully printing over the pockets works out : )
This is absolute genius! Love love love your design! Can't wait to buy this hoodie!
how come nobody has pointed out that it's upside down? hot should be at the top...
Because most people understand it's just an idea based on the interpretation of a thermometer, not a literal one.
hahahahah!!! also you could say that things get hotter as the hoodie unzips... ;)
clever, great idea
I loves it. :D I love the color version, as I love the little illustrations. :) 5$
100% print! :D
did this print yet?! no? weird.
Smart, great design!
love the color one!
Brilliant, one flaw that I see is that as a Canadian our thermometres must go down to at least -50°C, that could have been indicated around the hood of the sweater, as in if the hood is over the head and pulled closed over the face it's waaaaaaaaaay to f'n cold to be wearing just a hoody ☻ (of course I'm kidding this design has no flaws other than the classic version)
Print Print Print!
5555555555555555555555$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ MILLION I LOVE IT. SO SMART!
You hit this one out of the ball park! Fucking brilliant. This will definitely print and most likely break 4 as well.
great idea $5
holy crap, this is pure genius
great icons and design!!
you sir are an incredible genius
tu ere un genio!
Brilliant work! $5
i like this!
awesome and perfect and incredible
wow thank you for the support y'all
1 day left!
Well I admit I'm not crazy about it, but fits the comp and is nicely executed.
this design confuses me
it seems you have it backwards--the numbers are descending as the zip goes up
here is a picture of a thermometer
but then i thought maybe it is supposed to be that way
also is it UV?
or just two versions?
evan3, skim through the comments and you'll get it.
obviously because hoodies are worn when its cold, not hot.
oh i got it!
that is what i thought
i should read the designer's comments more
I'd wear the classic one, but the other one is more likely to print, and probably will. Great job.
awesome! I think you need another comment :) $5
print it already!!
Congrats on the Monsterscore :)
Who called it.
whoaaaa@score! y highest ever!!! thank you all!!
haha yes David to the freaking decimal point!
For the challenge I have a feeling it will be this versus Alex's submission.
Well done. This should print - most designs that I five do :)
this is awesome.
way to go Montro!
UV INK RIGHT THERE!!???? LOVEE!!!
I missed the voting.. my friend showed me this design... it's awesome! I would have given it a $5
woww 3.80! congrats mate! :)
woah great score
Great score!! print!!
awesome score, congrats!!
I feel like this will be so handy when I travel abroad. pshh who needs to learn the difference when I've got it on a sweatshirt.
Now if only threadless would print a second version on a different colored hoodie, I'd be all set.
This is awesome!
Great score - sorry I missed but a belated 5$ and print!
Great score! Well done, man.
CONGRATS on the print! super merecido!!! :)
great score and congrats!!!
A well deserved congrats!
Finally! A challenge design I love gets printed!
