Ground Effect is trying to reignite the long-dead flame of the sport of Lawn Darts (basically giant darts). The sport was banned in the US when a Lawn Dart killed a small child (it impaled her in the head). Anyway with Ground Effect's latest TT2 tee, designed by ex-Spoke designer Emma Gee, Lawn Darts are back, although they are now on bikes and wear helmets and are in fact human Lawn Darts. In the same package that contained these tees was a revised version of the classic Toe Rag sock; I'm wearing them right now actually. They fit super snug, and feature new graphics as well as a tighter fit. Oh and how awesome is this, I can't even tell you when they are coming out, 'cause I have no idea. Just keep your eyes on the Ground Effect website.
