Clothes that fit well complement a person's figure, though clothes that are way too big can be useful for concealing both mini and full-sized watermelons. Get the former with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of online T-shirts, beanies, jewelry, and more from Akinz. 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 and women. Bestsellers include a T-shirt hand-printed with Akinz's inspirational motto "find your wings" ($24), wing logo glass pendants available in turquoise and pink ($24), and a pullover hoodie emblazoned with the brand's jagged logo ($44). Beyond apparel, Akinz sponsors seven skiers and snowboarders—including 2010 San Diego Campus Rail Jam Tour winner Erika Vikander—in various regional, national, and 500-yards-underground competitions.
- I first heard of Akinz while living in Colorado and what may have started in Texas has grown into a Colorado state of mind company. I’ve seen Akinz sponsor rail jams and parties in Steamboat but also support the snowboarders who have helped grow the company. – Shayboarder
- The clothing line’s motto, “Find your wings” is about finding that one thing that moves you, the one thing that makes you push your limits and reach for the sky. – Idea Mensch
