Bricks N Pieces necklace:  BNP uses repurposed LEGOs to craft interesting jewelry.  This is their tribute to the home team.

Hashtag Filthy Hat:  Marcus Ford took a hashtag and turned it into a fashion statement.  This eponymous hat embodies that statement.  This version has the trademark Seattle neon paired with a livelier blue than the team colors.

The TShirt features a “Spirit of ’76” tribute to the Seattle Seahawks, referencing the year they first played an NFL game (though the team was announced and founded two years prior).

We have a friend that is a HUGE SeaHawks fan! He would absolutely love this entire box and we’re going to send him the shirt as a surprise (fortunately he hasn’t moved since grad school, time to move on dude!).

The back of the shirt has the Jeffrey Verge crest with his slogan (roughly translated:  “get into trouble”).  It is a center of the shoulder decal, not the entire back.

This is a great box for a Seattle native or fan of the Seahawks, since all the items sported the team’s colors.  This particular installment was really pinpoint focused on the team, so those looking for a broader perspective on Seattle may have been left a little wanting, but this month was advertised in advance as the SeaHawks tribute box. It was cool that they were able to pull that off while still having local trendsetters contribute to the box. The next month might be coffee, grunge, Boeing, Microsoft, etc. So much culture has emanated from Seattle that I am psyched to see what is in coming boxes! The theme for next month is Keeping It Warm and you can see previews of the items on their site – hurry to get the October box before it closes!
