July Discount:

It feels like things are heating up politically again and science has taken a back seat. This will only get more intense leading up to the November elections. My favorite quote on this matter is on this 3" sticker that can add visibility on your laptop, thermos, or notebook:

"I do not share your view that the scientist should observe silence in political matters" - Albert Einstein

For the month of July we want to get these reminders spread throughout research circles, so when you buy 4, you'll get 2 free with code NOTSILENCE at checkout. Make sure to add all 6 to your cart first. Gift them to your interns, your lab mates and your neighboring colleagues!

July Resource - Ultimate Guide to Lab Coat Materials:

We've done tons of research on lab coats lately and as a grad student I remember feeling overwhelmed trying to figure out what we needed. I thought it would be useful to compile that info into a straightforward comparison of all the materials you can choose from in your lab coat. We made sure to cover polyester/cotton blends all the way to what "FR" means. This should be a helpful resource to all researchers and we would love if you shared it and linked to it from your own sites!

July News - Adding a little more color

We just updated the brand colors to add a little more range and keep it a little lighter. The previous colors were modern and sharp, but felt a little exclusive and rigid. Let me know what you think! 

Major data update on The Lab Coat Project!

We're over 960 responses and I couldn't help but peek at the data. "Peek" might be an understatement. I spent an entire weekend pouring through it, reading every single rant and learning how to make queries in Google Docs to parse the data into useful plots. Now, for your viewing enjoyment, those plots are published at the bottom of the main Lab Coat Project page.

See what's winning in the major design features and what the favorite colors are! We're seeing trends in the fit data but won't publish that until we get well over 1000 responses to ensure they are statistically significant in every size range.

PLEASE if you know a single scientist or engineer who wears a lab coat and has not taken this survey, we need their voice added! It's only an 8-minute form. Forward this link to them and tell them how awesome this is going to be when everyone contributes.
