T-Shirts, Buzz Aldrin and the Big Space Race

The debate as to whether man should return to the Moon or venture to Mars has lasted nearly as long as time itself. Should we stick to what we know, or venture out further afar to the unknown territories of Mars?

Although man may want to explore and test the surface of Mars, experts say it is too soon. “If we started going to Mars any time soon everybody would die. We don’t know what we are doing yet. We have to have a bunch of inventions between now and Mars”, declared Chris Hadfield, the first Canadian to walk in space, at a Guardian Live event in London on Sunday. “Where we are going to go next is the moon. That’s where we are going to go because it just makes sense. It is only three days away and we can invent so many things.”

Well-known space engineers and pilots are now starting to show their Moon or Mars support via slogan t-shirts. Legendary astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, is advocating a mission to Mars by the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing, via his “Get your ass to Mars” t-shirt below.

  However, David Masten, rocket designer and founder of Masten Space Systems, has shown his support for another moon landing with his slogan t-shirt:

 

Do you think slogan t-shirts are the  way to express your opinion?

Facebook founder Zuckerberg: Why I wear the same t-shirt everyday

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has recently revealed in his first public Q&A the reason why he wears his famous grey t-shirt everyday. He owns several versions of the same t-shirt, and has disclosed that he believes choosing what to wear, along with what to eat for breakfast, is a “silly” decision he would rather not spend time and energy on.

Supporting one of the great advantages of wearing a uniform for work, we have to agree with Zuckerberg – not having to make that decision about what to wear for work certainly saves money and the time spent agonizing over your wardrobe.

Zuckerberg, however, isn’t the only well-known entrepreneur to be famous for wearing the same outfit to work everyday. Below is our top selection of other wellknown faces who have worn the same clothing (or versions of) for work over the years:

Simon Cowell

The TV presenter and music producer is well-known for wearing his standard open collar white shirt, high-waisted trousers and black jacket.

 

Richard Branson

You will rarely see the founder of Virgin wearing anything but a white shirt, much like Cowell above.

 

Steve Jobs

The late Apple boss and co-founder’s daily attire was his black turtleneck.

Designer Karl Lagerfeld is rarely seen without his trademark gloves, white shirt, black tie and black sunglasses.

Does your company need stress-busting helmets?

Forget stress balls, according to the BBC this week, Japanese designer Tomomi Sayuda has come up with a new tool to combat the strains and tensions of the working week: a helmet. Called Mask of Soul, each helmet is colourful and cartoon-esque, and is designed to combat office-related tensions and burdens.

The question is, would you where one of these helmets to work?

Does your favourite TV show influence what you wear?

Last night marked the 66th Emmy Awards – and with lots of popular TV series proving worthy winners, we thought we’d look at the shows that are influencing what we are wearing…

Orange is the New Black 

The TV series made orange so cool, that one prison in Michigan decided to ditch their luminous jumpsuits and replaced them with black-and-white striped jumpsuits.

A sheriff at the Saginaw County Jail commented: “It’s because as you see shows on television, like Orange Is The New Black, some people think it’s cool to look like an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail with wearing all-orange jumpsuits out at the mall or in public.

“It’s a concern because we do have our inmates out sometimes doing work in the public, and I don’t want anyone to confuse them or have them walk away.

“We decided that the black-and-white stripes would be the best way to go because it signifies ‘jail inmate,’ and I don’t see people out there wanting to wear black-and-white stripes.”

Breaking Bad

Big winners at the Emmy’s last night, hit show Breaking Bad has also seen a surge in popularity in the hat market. The signature pork pie hat as worn by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White has proved extremely popular with fans. However, this Heisenburg hat has a hefty price tag of $150.

Game of Thrones

Printed t-shirts bearing slogans or characters from shows such as Game of Thrones are becoming increasingly popular, however it is the medieval fashion from this cult TV series that has become in demand. From high end fashion houses to small jewellery businesses, everyone wants to cash in on the layered fur, house sigils and intricate embroidery of the show.
