Talk about taking your show on the road. The Electronic Drum Machine Shirt lets you get your rock star fantasies off your chest - by playing your chest. The shirt comes with a removable, battery-operated box that amplifies a range of nine built-in drum styles (called kits) when you tap on one of the eight “drum pads” and controls delineated on the wired-up rubber grid attached with Velcro to the front of the shirt. Each “kit” has a choice of seven sounds that can be mixed and matched with sounds in other styles - such as rock, jazz, techno punk - and combined into loops.

When U.S. Soccer dumped the red-striped "Where's Waldo" jerseys it debuted in 2012, the feeling was whatever it picked had to be better. Oops. Wrong again. The new Nike white home jerseys unveiled this week and heavily criticized by fans look more like polo shirts than soccer uniforms with full collars. The shirts, which the U.S. will wear in this summer's World Cup in Brazil, also have red trim on the collars and sleeves, the centennial U.S. Soccer patch on the left breast and a blue Nike swoosh on the right side.

I fly internationally and am 6 feet, 5 inches tall. It was hard for me to get comfortable in any seat, much less to sit for 12 to 15 hours in coach, until I found AlignMed and its Align Therapy "posture shirt. " It is a must for flying. I call it a flight suit because it allows me to get off the plane and feel human. I am not wracked with pain or stiffness. It is a travel secret; I know pilots wear them, but they should be in everyone's wardrobe. Align Therapy posture shirt; (866)

What the heck, Amanda Bynes? The retired actress kept it, ahem, low-key on Tuesday in New York, walking around in a mismatched miniskirt and busting-out bustier with - you guessed it, because who wouldn't guess it - a shirt over her face. Through Times Square and in and out of a McDonald's. With a shirt over her face. Check out the action in the video above. Accompanying the please-don't-look-at-me-are-you-looking-at-me-now antics were a bunch of self-portraits posted on Twitter, where she flaunted some bodacious cleavage and proclaimed herself to be "Feeling so fresh today.

LONDON -- So a guy from South Africa walks into the Aquatics Centre wearing a Dee Gordon T-shirt. Have the Dodgers' new owners already recovered the team's global luster? Well, no. The guy wearing the shirt was Nick Gordon, a sports reporter for the Citizen. He had traveled to Los Angeles last month to cover a championship fight, with Jeffrey Mathebula of South Africa as one of the combatants. Nick Gordon said he did not go to a Dodgers game while he was in town. He is not a baseball fan. Rather, he saw the T-shirt in the mall and bought it since his last name was on the back.

SAN FRANCISCO - An attorney is vowing to appeal a federal court ruling that a Northern California high school that asked students to remove American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo acted reasonably to avoid igniting ethnic tensions. The ruling stemmed from a 2010 incident that provoked angry commentary across the country and a lawsuit by students claiming their constitutional rights had been violated. An attorney for three students who sued said he would ask a larger panel of the 9th Circuit to overturn the ruling.

SAN FRANCISCO - A Northern California high school did not violate the constitutional rights of students when it ordered them to remove shirts emblazoned with the American flag during a celebration of Cinco De Mayo, a federal appeals court decided unanimously Thursday. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9 th Circuit Court of Appeals said administrators at Live Oak School in the Morgan Hill Unified School District had reason to fear that a potentially violent, race-related disturbance might occur during the school-sanctioned celebration of the Mexican holiday in 2010.

An Adidas marketing campaign that was apparently intended to, um, increase the number of passes attempted at this summer's World Cup soccer tournament has run afoul of Brazilian authorities, who have asked the company to stop selling a pair of racy T-shirts. One design shows a woman on a beach in a bikini, arms open, next to the caption "Lookin' to Score. " The other features an "I Love Brazil" heart with the heart made to resemble an inverted buttocks wearing a thong bikini. The reaction at the Brazilian tourist board, Embratur, was as angry as it was swift.

SAN FRANCISCO - A public elementary school decided in 2011 to require students to wear a uniform with the school's motto, "Tomorrow's Leaders," emblazoned in small letters on the shirts around a gopher, the campus mascot. One parent objected to the uniforms and eventually sued, contending they violated the 1st Amendment's guarantee of free speech. In a unanimous ruling Friday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit largely agreed with her. The panel said the words "Tomorrow's Leaders" potentially violated students' right to free speech and the uniform policy must go unless the school district can justify it under a legal standard that is difficult to meet.

Now that is one expensive shirt. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was fined $10,000 by the NFL for wearing "unauthorized apparel" to his postgame news conference Sunday. See, the problem is that Griffin has a sponsorship deal with Adidas, but the NFL has a league-wide deal with Nike. When Griffin arrived at the news conference wearing an Adidas T-shirt, that was a big no-no in the eyes of the league. So he was fined. Of course, considering Griffin signed a four-year, $21-million deal with the Redskins before the season started, $10,000 is probably not that big of a deal to him.

Tim Tebow had his best day of training camp so far Monday, unofficially completing four of six passes and scrambling for a 25-yard run while practicing with the New York Jets' second-string offense. The backup quarterback did take a sack and got an earful from offensive coordinator Tony Sparano for not checking down on one incompletion. But overall Tebow did nothing to garner heckles from the New York fans, who let him hear about his sometimes wobbly and often incomplete passes (unofficially he was three for eight)

The person who chose the image for an item on sale on the Florida State website may have been an Auburn fan. For a few hours after the game, you could buy a nice gray T-shirt that had an interesting error: OMG this is awesome - *kRiStEn* (@kswift_RN) January 7, 2014 Do you see the mistake? I'm pretty sure Auburn did not win that game. The error was corrected, but not before several Florida State and Auburn fans discovered it and tweeted it out.

Fashion model Behati Prinsloo has plopped down on this particular couch in this particular atelier in downtown Los Angeles on this particular mid-December evening to talk about her new creative collaboration with L.A.-based denim label THVM. Thanks to a rapidly rising professional profile - not to mention her engagement to Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach Adam Levine - she's doing more than introducing around a dozen pieces of apparel to the world. She's been introducing herself too. Not that Behati (pronounced Bee-OTT-ee)
