VALENTINES DAY GIFTS! For those in the extended EMC community wanting to give a loved one some cool branded material, check out the Wasp site. Lots of wearables that would amp the hottness of your hottie.
My husband has two Rugby shirts made by Canterbury (the maker of these Wasp shirts), and my fashionable 14 year old daughter wears one constantly as well. They ooze with cool you can't easily find in the US. Even guys comment each time my husband wears one -- ("Hey, where did you get that great shirt?").
Top the quality shirt with the brand attributes in the headline and I'm thinking these could be cool gifts. For guys, get ahead of the curve and pick one up for yourself (she'll be thrilled the pressure is off!). Give it to yourself for Valentines Day, or Father's Day, or just because. She'll just be happy you look hot and compliment-worthy!
------------------------ Really? --------------------
While in college at St. Louis University, I fell in love with Rugby.
I was raised a football kid, my brothers were big players -- every Sunday we'd head to the field to see them play. I didn't know the first thing about Rubgy.
At my college, there was no football team. Rugby, I suppose was the closest thing to it. Oh, but in my book it is so much better! Action, Speed, and Zero Padding-Tough! And for the college club fans, kegs on the sidelines.
So imagine my delight when I saw on EMC.com tonight two of my favorite things linked together: EMC and Rugby. I LOVE the team's name (Wasp ... nice brand affinity -- tough to compete against!), and I LOVE the brand that makes their gear (Canterbury; my sister-in-law used to work in marketing for them and as a result, we've been wearing the brand at home for years. Quality & Stylish), and of course, EMC's coolness as a brand leader which continues to win year-after-year sort of speaks for itself, doesn't it?
I'm only sorry I did not know about this Wasp/EMC relationship before.
Must find a way to take in a game! Must find a way to get them (the players! the shirts!) into the EMC HQ!
