Festivus For The Rest Of Us Tee ($32)

As children of the 80s and 90s at The Coolector, Seinfield is a seminal piece of television for us so anything that celebrates its awesomeness is alright in our book. Enter this brilliant Festivus For The Rest Of Us Tee ($32) which is a celebration of one of Frank Costanza’s most iconic moments in the hit show. The celebration came to be after he was unable to score his son the doll he so wanted – so Festivus celebrates all the angst associated with the holiday season.

A T-shirt we’ll definitely be adding to our own collection this summer at Coolector HQ. ($32)

HOMAGE Cloth Mask ($3)

Whilst the global pandemic is showing signs of (hopefully) coming to an end, a lot of us will likely look to be wearing a mask for the seeable future. Add a touch of class to your face this summer with the lightweight and breathable Homage Cloth Mask ($3). This great accessory sees the brand take their super soft t-shirt fabric, layer it up, and sew it into a non-medical grade mask for added protection when you’re out and about and want to enhance your protection.
