Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of T-shirts, beanies, jewelry, hoodies, and accessories from Akinz.
Akinz cloaks gentlemen and ladies alike in fashionable hoodies, casual headwear, and jangly trinkets. Bestsellers include a T-shirt handprinted with Akinz's inspirational motto Find Your Wings ($18), Shenanakinz sunglasses available in plum, peacock, or white ($14.95), and a zip-up hoodie emblazoned with the store's jagged logo ($34). Among an artful collection of adornments, button candy earrings ($4) fasten sweetly to the lobes, and Boombox bottle-cap earrings ($12) make ears more fun to talk at.
Akinz founder Suzanne Akin got her start hawking handmade wares at wakeboarding events in Texas. She moved north, following the mossy side of trees with a variety of handmade beanies and super-soft vintage-wash T-shirts in hand for men, women, and hard-to-clothe forest dryads.
