BWET Swimwear – Born on the beach of Barcelona

BWET Swimwear is available at Moosestrum. According to the founders of the company, they started the idea of the company when two American friends were overheard by another pair of friends from Rio and Hong Kong about how boring and uninspiring men’s swimwear is on the beaches in the USA. They created BWET as an alternative for urban beach lovers – swimwear that combines  fashion and style with the comfort and quality of the mass produced sports brands.

BWET created the slogans “BNoticed”, “BComfortable”, and “BIndependent”, and we think that if you’re looking for something different to wear on the beaches this year you’ll like what they have created. Colorful, stylish lines that will look sexy on that body you’ve worked hard on in the gym and now want to show off on the beach. 

This is the fifth year Moosestrum has offered BWET Swimwear to our customers, and we hope you will come and see what we’ve got to offer. Our prices are competitive, shipping on BWet is free, and we’re glad to help out if you have any questions!

What Type of Hoodie Should I Buy: French Terry or Sweatshirt Fleece?

Which is right for me…French Terry or Sweatshirt Fleece?

At Moosestrum, we sell hoodies made of both types of sweatshirt fabric: French Terry and Sweatshirt Fleece. They are different only in the way that the fabric is finished during manufacturing. With sweatshirt fabric (used to make hoodies, sweatpants, etc.), there are yarn loops formed on the back side of the fabric, this would become the inside of the hoodie when the garment is sewn.  

  • With Sweatshirt Fleece, the yarn loops are shredded, which makes the inside of the hoodie soft and fuzzy. (These would be our Gildan Heavy Blend Hoodies).
  • With French terry, the yarn loops are left intact, which makes the inside of the hoodie moisture-wicking – that is, more absorbent and more breathable. (These would be our Delta French Terry Hoodies).

What Do these manufacturing difference mean to the hoodie?

The fact that French Terry is more breathable means that you may find that it keeps you cooler in warmer weather – or more comfortable in the gym when you’re breaking a sweat. As you’d expect, that also means that Sweatshirt Fleece is less breathable and will keep you warmer because the shredded loops make the inside of the hoodie denser and less reachable.

Now, this doesn’t mean that French Terry is good only for warmer weather and Sweatshirt Fleece is better for colder weather. It depends upon your preference and tendencies – are you someone who is often cold or has a chill  more so than others? Maybe Sweatshirt Fleece is better for you. Are you always hot – or someone who wears sweatshirts while working out? Maybe your choice would be French Terry. 

I have worn both at different times of the year, and it’s not like if you wear a French Terry in the winter you’re going to freeze — or if you wear Sweatshirt Fleece in May you’re going to overheat. They are both warm and comfortable, and the choice comes down to preference.

My Preference –  When one is preferred over the other

For me, if I’m wearing a sweatshirt to the gym or to bed on a cold night, I prefer French Terry, because I tend to sweat less and when I do sweat it is absorbed by the French Terry – and with the Sweatshirt Fleece the sweat doesn’t absorb, it just kind of stays on my body (which I don’t like at all). 

If I’m hanging around the house in the fall, not being active, say, watching TV – I like Sweatshirt Fleece. It’s softer feel is nice and comfy. 🙂

Here’s More from –

French terry looks like jersey with a smooth knit stitch on one side and the flat loops of purls on the other. It is made from thicker thread/yarn, which makes it great for yoga pants, light weight sweatshirts, lounge wear and more.

Sweatshirt fleece (also referred to as cotton fleece or bamboo fleece at times) is similar except often has a tighter stitch and a brushed back (looped/purl side) to make it soft and fuzzy, which also adds warmth.

Thanks to EYMM for the above two definitions!

Kunai earrings are so popular right now!

The Kunai knife wasn’t originally a weapon of death – it was an inexpensive work tool made from soft iron and used by Japanese peasants. It came in useful for crushing softer building materials such as plaster, for gardening and digging holes, and for prying. Its blade has a triangular shape, its handle is rod-shaped and has terminates in a ring. Its size usually runs from about 7″ to 12″, and because it was not a cutting tool or a weapon, there was no need for sharpened edges. 

Now, in popular culture, Kunai knives became deadly in the hands of a Ninja. They sharpened its edges and used it in hand-to-hand combat. They could tie a rope to the loop at the base of the handle and fashion it into a spearhead or tethered anchor for climbing. They could use it to dig through walls and keep the element of surprise during an attack. 

Lately, the Kunai has used by Ninjas in anime such as Naruto, and this may be the reason the knife has become so popular. If you’re a fan of this legendary knife, what is it about the Kunai that you like best? 

At Moosestrum, we have several earrings that feature the Kunai and the Shinobi. You don’t even have to have pierced ears! They are made by Mister SFC, and all have great pricing and free shipping.

DeLorean Watches and a brief History of DMC

John DeLorean

The DMC DeLorean was made by the DeLorean Motor Company, which was founded by John DeLorean. DeLorean was a former automobile engineer and executive, most known for his time at General Motors Corporation and for his creation of the extremely popular and successful Pontiac GTO in 1964. As John DeLorean rose in the ranks of the GM corporation, other executives at GMC grew to dislike his maverick attitude. He eventually he grew tired of clashing with other executives at GMC and retired from the company in 1973 to start his own motor company, the DeLorean Motor Company.

The DeLorean Motor Company

The DeLorean Motor Company was launched in 1973, and a prototype car was revealed in 1976. The two seat sports car, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, would become best remembered for its Gull Wing doors and Stainless Steel body panels. The company begin producing a model for sale in January 1981, and production continued until October of 1982. About 9,000 DeLorean “DMC 12” cars were made.

Trouble for John DeLorean and DMC

In 1982, the company filed for bankruptcy due to large debts and arrest of John DeLorean for drug trafficking (DeLorean had agreed to help undercover FBI agents sell 220 pounds of Cocaine as a way to get the money his company needed to stay afloat). He was able to successfully defend himself on the basis of entrapment, but his reputation never recovered. The DeLorean Motor Company was no more, and the car faded from the limelight until its popularity became forever immortalized in 1985 in the film “Back to the Future”.

New Beginnings

In 1995, The DeLorean Motor Corporation was born again by Stephen Wynn, who acquired the company name, DMC logo and remaining parts inventory of the former DeLorean. Wynn’s company sells rebuilds and replicas of the DMC car for a price of approximately $100,000 each.

The DeLorean Watch

The DeLorean Motor company licenses DMC watches, which celebrate the iconic DMC 12 car. These watches continue the heritage of the DeLorean DMC 12 sports car – stainless steel bodies and design inspired by the DMC 12 itself. Take, for instance, the DMC Alpha watch. The horizontal lines on its face honor the DMC 12’s front grill, while its dials bear a striking resemblance to the DMC 12’s speedometer. 

Whether you own a DMC 12 or simply have an affinity to the legend that is DeLorean – these licensed watches will look great on your wrist. Wearing the DMC logo is a great way to show your love for this legendary time travelling car.

Update – Unfortunately, Moosestrum no longer sells the DMC watches, last I heard, the company was no longer making them.

Anytime’s a Good Time for good ‘ole Dicken’s Cider

Dicken’s Cider – It wasn’t long ago that a friend of mine asked me if I had heard of the new drink that was the new big craze. Hahaha was my response after a second or two. Amazingly tho, most of the waitresses don’t get it when he asks if they have it available when they’re taking drink orders… or they’re pretending because they aren’t interested in engaging in his toilet humor. If you haven’t heard of Dicken’s Cider, look it up on Youtube – it’s good for a laugh. It’s one of those Dr. Dimento type songs that’s been on radio shows for years. I tried to trace it’s origins for this post, but didn’t get very far. People online dispute one another about where it came from, the only thing I could determine is that it’s been around for quite a while.

This design for Dicken’s Cider was made in house at Moosestrum. It was as if Dicken’s was a real product – by fellow Moosestrumite/Graphic Designer who took it on as if she was creating art for a real product. It looks great! See our Dicken’s products here!

Backyard Chickens may produce fresh eggs, but are they safe?

The incredible edible egg. Where I live, having chickens is like the cool thing to do. “Fresh” eggs are being sold all over the place. I like the idea of getting fresh eggs. But, note that eggs from “pet” chickens often contain traces of lead because the soil in many yards contains lead. Do a Google search on lead in backyard chickens’ eggs to learn more – .

Dopamine Dressing Style!

Turquoise Adjustable Top & Brazilian Tie Bikini from Freshkini at

If you find yourself asking, what is the Dopamine dressing trend? Well, it’s the fashion style is that’s heating up the summer of 2022. 

Dopamine dressing is a fashion style that has the goal of boosting your mood through the wearing of bright, exciting colors. The idea is that wearing vivid clothing, especially clothing that has special meaning or memories to you has a positive impact on your outlook and feelings of happiness. 

It’s called Dopamine Dressing after one of the feel-good chemicals released by the brain that affects one’s overall mood and sense of well-being (the other being Serotonin). 

The phrase “Dopamine Dressing” was coined by psychologist Dr. Dawnn Karen, who is also a professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. 

She has talked about how more than a year of living in the era of Covid affected our morale. People are now looking to distance themselves from what was essentially a stressful period, and one way to do that is through fashion expression. Dr. Dawn says. “I’d say color plays a huge role. Wearing color is a form of communication, and it triggers emotions within us and others perceiving us. The colors you gravitate toward, and ultimately choose to wear, carry meanings much deeper than meet the eye.”

Dopamine Dressing helps us feel good. Colors can help us feel more confident and give us a mental boost that helps make the day just that much brighter. Of course, different colors evoke different feelings for different people, so it’s definitely an individual journey. But why not give it a try?
