The Savages Behind Shinesty Suits Are Getting Their Own TV Show On MTV 2
The folks over at Shinesty, a Boulder-based retail apparel company, are producing some of the most outrageous threads on the market today. Their suits are the clothing equivalent of the phrases “I’m too drunk to taste this chicken” and “I have awful credit but I just purchased a mini pony.” But their mullet inspiring apparel isn’t just a funny hobby between its founders, Chris White and Jens Nicolaysen, it’s a bonafide business.
Since its launch two years ago, Shinesty has raised $3.4 million from equity investors and just last year have tallied $5 million in sales, built on the slogan “Clothing that likes to party – Stay Weird & Shine On.” Who would have thought that ding-a-ling-slings are a staple product for a prospering company. Never learned that shit in school THANKS MRS. HENDERSON.
Anyway, Shinesty’s cast of characters are now crossing over mediums into your television screens, as they have secured a show on MTV 2, premiering July 20.
Check out how hot I look in my Christmas suit. Still, women are repulsed by me.
