Naked & Angry

Talk about ground-breaking online business models! Naked & Angry lets you submit your own patterns that people will vote on for seven days; the winners will get $500 and free product, and the winning designs will be made into limited-run numbered neckties (and, apparently, other silk things too) that are for sale on the same site.

How cool is that? These guys are strictly intermediaries, and they’ve balanced “high-concept design, consumer/designer interaction, limited availability, and reasonable affordability” (as said by productdose).

Just wish I’d thought of it first.
