You know that feeling you get when you just can't find the right T-shirt to match your iPhone's case? No? Really? Am I the only one? Anyway, if you love Threadless T-shirt designs and need a new iPhone case, you will be happy to know that Threadless has teamed up with Griffin to offer limited edition iPhone 3G cases with original Threadless designs on them. The first two designs are already available on Griffin's site: Birds of a Feather and Clouds Within The Thunder. Both cases sport original Threadless images, and are made up of the same slim polycarbonate material that Griffin uses in their other cases. The two cases are available for $34.99 each, and are being offered in limited runs, so if you want one, you better hurry. The matching T-shirts by the same names, Birds of a Feather and Clouds Within The Thunder, are available on Threadless' website for $18 a piece. This is only the beginning of what will hopefully be a pleasant partnership for the two companies. Different case designs and other accessories will be made available sometime in the future, so keep a lookout.
"I've been a fan of Threadless ever since my first visit to their retail store in Chicago," said Mark McGlon, visual brand coordinator at Griffin Technology. "I saw immediately, from their layout and presentation, that their shirt designs would be a perfect match for our accessories."I don't know about all of you, but I am a huge fan of the Threadless design community and I can't wait to see what other designs they slap on my favorite iPhone accessories. Embedded below is a video announcing the partnership.
