Labels are essential for passing information about a shirt. They are also the perfect place to hide secret messages and jokes that only the wearer gets to discover during laundry day.
No, not from Spiderman, but yarn and fabrics made up of single-use plastic bottles--many found floating in the ocean--sewed into hip clothes. That's the idea behind the company Bionic Yarn, co-founded by Tyson Toussant, partnered with ocean protector Paul Watson, and with recording artist Pharrell Williams as their Creative Director.
They make denim jeans, snowboarding jackets, boat covers, furniture, and other products using their innovating product.
Their concept is to clean the oceans and promote using reusable products. For instance, they promote facts about plastic bottle usage:
Apparently, since "plastic bottles are made up of the same polymer as polyester," Bionic Yarn can bypass the use of crude oil-based yarn products through their own recycling process.
They refine the bottles into chips and then heat and pull-apart the fibers and spin them into yarn. They can then mix the yarn with cotten or wool for whatever item they want to sew.
These aren't your Mama's recycled pants.

So GQ recently did an article showcasing Fall clothing as a backdrop to male climbers in Joshua Tree National Park:
Well, Outdoor Research didn't like how the women in the story were only portrayed as accessories to the climbers, frolicking in tiny bathing suits and adorning the men as stereotypes.
So they took it upon themselves to answer GQ's article, picture-by-picture using bad*ss women climbers:

Ruth Clemens opened up the Facebook floodgates after posting a rant on H&M's page about her struggle to squeeze into a pair of jeans and medium top.
Once Ruth posted her grievance, it seemed that the entire internet decided to join in and take advantage of the opportunity to complain about, well, anything.
H&M did their best ease the tension with generic copy/pasted responses, but the onslaught of complaints was just too much.
Rose Nickels was kicked out of her gym because of the above "inappropriate attire". According to the people who sent her packing, her chest is larger than most in proportion to the size of her body so that makes this tank top look immodest her.
She details the experience in her Facebook post about the incident.
If this all seems ridiculous to you, that's because it is. But nonetheless the gym has stood by the decision to make her leave and Nickels has had to find a new place to exercise.
Ciara wore a fancy dress to sing the anthem before the College Football Playoff Championship game on Monday night. It seems like a pretty normal situation but Bonnie Bernstein of Campus Insiders had a problem with Ciara's choice of clothing. She called her out, using the classic "think of the children" as justification for telling her to "cover up". The response to her Tweet has been overwhelmingly negative.
Remember the long lines and human stampedes for Furby and Cabbage Patch Dolls in the '90s?
Well, this is sort of like that. But for cheaply-made clothing.
Balmain for H&M's Collection, promoted by Kylie Jenner, dropped today across the globe and was sold out in many stores within seconds. Videos showing the chaos starting popping up all over the Internet.
Shoppers in Paris can be seen above sprinting their way through the store, ripping clothes from mannequins.
In Croatia, people got pushy.
And Istanbul was a total mess.
Oh, and the website crashed when the line went on sale this morning.
Hug your family tight tonight, people of the world. There is no more Balmain. The end is near.
