Fashionable spy gear is usually hard to find. Spy glasses usually look like this. On the other hand, the video recording glasses you see in the photo above don't look too shabby.
Baby powder on the floor, a whoopee cushion in the fire place, knock-out drugs in the cookies — tricky ol' Saint Nick has seen it all. None of it comes close to showing that the most elusive delivery man ever has made his rounds. Well, this year, something just might: the Santa Claus Detector by Thomas Cane.

This shirt isn't trying to hide the fact that it's all about spies. I mean, you've got your James-Bond-looking-dude right up front there, and the words "From Tokyo With Love" paying even more homage to 007. The big secret? That camera said James-Bond-dude is holding actually works.
Ten years ago, we would have never wasted our time taking photos of every ridiculous antic happening around us. Now, thanks to Facebook, Flickr and a wealth of other places to share our pics, we've all become photos sharing freaks.
