Guido has launched a new website and business: PatentWear which offers casual wear with some history and the original artwork. One can find something for anyone if they have the slightest interest in any area of recreation or other pursuits.

Climbing, surfing, lipstick, hippie lettuce hookahs, fishing, guns, you name it! Check it out! Christmas is not far off! Yet this line of clothing is WAY FAR OUT!

BooDawg! Thanks for posting that link. The T-shirt designs are great fun.

Wonderful ideas on Guido's part!

I placed an order on Friday. The package arrived yesterday. Great turn around time.

I'll let you know about the goods once the package is opened at a birthday party later today.

I have been a good boy this year,
I would really like a Patent Wear T-shirt for Christmas.
The one with the old school Hexentric please.

Super cool Guido.

I just bought one of the Hex t-shirts. In blue. Great stuff. Hope it comes soon and that the company takes off! You need to do a piton one!

"The world of wacky, wild, and otherwise unusual patents is only limited by human imagination! Some are downright humorous, many were never actually produced. As crazy as those ideas might seem sometimes, all are a testament to our never-ending efforts to come up with 'a better mousetrap.'"

I was kind of offended by this piece of promo. It's just not funny. You can imagine why I feel this way. I know it wasn't intentional. I'll probably end up being a customer. Good luck, though. Launching a new venture is like launching a ship. Some vessels sink quicker than others. You should, f*#k that, I should invent a better business slipway. There. That's what I'm talking about.

Yes, I would like a '4" bong' in XL, please.

So,.. Guido,
any of my comments or edits make it to the final product on the gun shirts?

Dec 13, 2012 - 12:23pm PT
This is bogus. I'm sure there was prior art.


Great idea and site!

When I lived in socal, my house was at the bottom of a hill on which the inventor of the intermittent windshield wiper built his house. Palatial is not an overstatement...

edit. His house, not mine... ;)

Richard unwrapped his gift PatentWear zip hoodie and loves it. Good quality graphics and material from Guido and crew. Recommended.

Just looking at the site again. Man there's some beautiful work in there.

Prolly have to do a hex for me. What, no pitons?

Gardening and wine for the little lady.

Lysergium for my friend.

Saddle for the daughter...What, no basketball? (You know, an antique ball or something) Someday, when you're looking to expand your line.
