The birth of Outer Edge Threads in June was an exciting venture quickly dampened by the NHL Lockout, but thanks to your support our rookie line was well received and we thrilled to offer the next generation in OET apparel.
OET’s Lockout Survivor threads
We will debut our winter line with five new designs on Thursday, February 14th! We figured Valentine’s Day was an appropriate launch date since we appreciate the love, and because of you, we were able to pay that love forward.
The Kids ‘N Community Foundation, a charity that supports many North Carolina non-profits, received a donation check from OET from the Blackbeard shirt sales. Again, many thanks to EYECANDYAIR for loaning us Cam Ward’s sweet goalie mask design.
We were also able to support the Carolina Fury, a power wheelchair hockey league, thanks to your Facebook ‘likes.’
We sincerely appreciate everyone’s support over the past seven months. We received some terrific feedback and we’re excited to offer more color and size options with this new line of hockey threads.
To show our thanks, we are offering a 15% discount code active February 14th on all apparel through Sunday, February 17th. Just use the code: PEACELOVEPUCK at checkout.

Hands down, this is the design I’m most pumped to reveal. I’m so excited about this line, I don’t even know where to start. Please hold while I give fake fist bumps to an invisible bench.
Now that we got that out of the way…
OET gave birth in Raleigh, North Carolina, so it is no surprise we’re Carolina Hurricanes fans. If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you also know we are a little partial to goalies and we have one of the best in Carolina. Cam Ward is a Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe winner. The All-Star netminder also became the first starting goaltender to win the NHL championship as a rookie since Patrick Roy in 1986. He also has some of the sickest goalie mask art in the game thanks to EYECANDYAIR. Read more

Let me start by saying I know many hockey fans are sincerely dedicated to their beloved Molson, so save your chirps. Molson Coors Brewing Co. is the official beer of the National Hockey League and I am not happy about it. Watching the lame (sorry Coors) commercials during the Rangers versus Devils game today got me thinking (dangerous, I know). Hockey is a passionate, physical sport that boasts some of the most competitive athletes in the world. So how is a light beer with some of the lowest alcohol percentage on the market well representing this game?
Yes, I am a beer snob. I rather sip cough syrup than drink light beer. I dig microbrews and prefer my beer to be as thick and dark as my morning cup of joe. To each their own, but here are other beers I feel would better represent the terrific game of hockey: Read more
Fans can easily wear replicated jerseys of their favorite player. Hockey enthusiasts may also sport t-shirts and hats displaying their favorite team’s logo. However, the most artistic designs on the ice are not readily available.
Goalies stand apart from other hockey players for a variety of reasons. Their unique mask art being a clear example. Outer Edge Threads is beyond thrilled to announce we are launching charity apparel sponsored by EYECANDYAIR. Now you can wear shirts supporting two Stanley Cup goalie’s non-profit organizations…and look good while doing it.
Steve Nash, of EYECANDYAIR, is the artist behind the masks of Cam Ward, Tim Thomas, Martin Biron, Jonathan Quick, Chris Mason and more. I interviewed Mr. Nash a few months ago for CardiacCane.com and I couldn’t wait to find a reason to work with them again. Read more
