The Hot Chip boys are an elusive crew and tough to track down, especially in the dark, but we did it! And thus, we proudly present the next chapter in amazing 2008 Loves challenges...
We're going to do it a little differently this time with the theme of "Made In The Dark," not so coincidentally the name of Hot Chip's stellar new album. We'd love for you to submit designs featuring new and innovative uses for glow ink! This is your challenge, designers, and you have until March 31 to submit your glowing masterpiece. If Hot Chip deem it worthy to carry the LOVES banner, you could be rocking out on your new MicroKorg keyboard, as used by the boys themselves! Check out the Loves page for the full list of goodies up for grabs and don't forget...
On Sunday March 9, your bestest friends, Threadless, along with the awesome folks at Moo, Etsy, and Timbuk2, will be throwing a PPP – a People Powered Party for this year’s South By Southwest Interactive Festival.
It starts at 9 PM and will be at The Tap Room, 311 Colorado St, in Austin TX.
It’s a celebration of companies like ours that put the community at the center of product design. So come out, community! Enjoy free drinks, nibbles, entertainment (courtesy of a DJ set by the incomparable Flosstradamus), giveaways, fun DIY activities, and all around sweet times. It's also a 21+ event.
We really hope you can make it! It’s sure to be a blast.

Hey there, buck-a-roos! We've got some exciting news! The wait is finally over, and we're now printing new designs EXCLUSIVELY on our own brand of tees! This news comes with the news of new sizes, new colors, and new prices! Let's jump right in!
NEW SIZES & COLORS! We're now offering FOUR new sizes for all of the Threadless brand tees: XS in guys and girly tees, 2XL in girly tees, and 3XL in guys tees! Oh yeah! We'll also be rolling out new colors over the next few months, which are already available in the submission template for all the designers to jam on! Also, now that we're using our own tees, take a peek at our brand-spankin' new size chart page to see how this may or may not affect your size! www.threadless.com/sizechart
NEW PRICING STRUCTURE! As of today, prices will be dependent on what's on the tee, starting at $15! As seen on each new product page, the printing and decoration techniques and processes are now detailed to help illustrate how price is determined. This means that Selects will not automatically be $25 and the regular tees will not automatically be $15 and $17. And now the ladies won't have to feel slighted either! Guys and girly tees are now equally priced!
All of the above tee changes apply ONLY to the new Threadless brand tees, which we are now using exclusively for new designs! As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts and concerns on all of these new changes.
First time voters, Canadian twin rockers, and a 1 million view video! All featuring Threadless tees!

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! … (Actually, it's going to be Friday and Saturday, May 16-17 2008, but you get the picture.) Get ready to rev up those creative engines and heed the need for speed because your shakin' bakin' pals at Threadless have announced the THREADLEMANSS 48 Heures Derby! Woohoo! 2 days worth of the most thrilling, electrifying, and nail-bitingly chaotic action to ever take place on a 40 foot thin strip of pliable wood.
Trophies will be given to the top 4 finishers in the event, and a trophy will also be given to the "Best in Show", as selected by a panel of judges from Threadless.com. Additionally, gift certificates to Threadless.com will be given to the winners of the above mentioned categories: First Place will receive a $100 gift certificate, Second receives a $75 gift certificate, Third receives a $50 gift certificate, Fourth receives a $25 gift certificate, and the Best in Show will receive a $50 gift certificate.
UPDATE: Apparently we weren't very clear about what exactly this is. The event is modeled after the similar Cub Scout event, the Pinewood Derby. Participants obtain a car kit which looks like the picture below. Any kits such as the ones found here will work just fine!
Then, each participant modifies the kit by sawing, carving, painting, etc to look and perform as best as it can. Here are some examples on Flickr. The cars are then raced on a track like the picture below. We have an official track at the skinnyCorp office.
For the Threadlemanss we are allowing people from all around the world to enter the race without being present for the event by shipping the car to skinnyCorp. You may enter as many cars as you wish. If your car passes inspection it will be raced and considered for the "Best in Show" award. If the car does not pass inspection it will not be raced but will still be considered for "Best in Show." More details on how to enter and such can be found here.
MAY THE BEST CAR WIN!
