People laugh at my Reef brand thongs because they have a bottle opener under them in the sole. So they shouldn’t be surprised when I find an Aussie invention that is just so much fun, it deserves a mention here.
And it’s a story about a guy who turned his love of beer (a great Aussie pasttime) into a fully fledged business!
Tanked Drinkwear is a clothing product range designed for the drinking enthusiast 🙂
The clothing incorporates a built-in twist top bottle opener into the mens and womens tops and shorts.
The hats also have a twist top/ pop top bottle opener built into them.
And the shorts even include a tear-off stubbie cooler cleverly disguised as a pocket!
Really… What more could a man want?
These guys (and gals?) were captured at lunchtime today outside the Fish Co-op at Laurieton, on the mid-north coast of NSW (just 4.5 hrs north of Sydney, and 30mins south of Port Macquarie).
The weather was a little on the chilly side, so they were probably waiting for their order of hot fish to “go”.
Obviously, there’s some pretty good fish and chips available here… or at least, these pelicans seem to think so!
P.S. Hey Laurieton’s not a bad place to visit… I oughta know ‘cos I live there for quite a few years 🙂
