Manufacturer's Write Up:
Attire is the ultimate way to introduce a Sharpie. They see a design of a marker on your shirt, and with a simple pull on the image, and you now have a REAL Sharpie in your hand that you can use in your next routine!
Attire is a unique piece of magic from the creative duo of Roddy McGhie and Danny Weiser. It's truly like nothing else on the market. It allows you to take the ordinary action of introducing a Sharpie, and fill it with a moment of impossibility for your spectators.
You can hand out the Sharpie. They can even write with it. Except for the fact that you just manifested it from a drawing on your shirt, the marker is completely normal! If you use a Sharpie, then you'll need Attire.
Warning: this effect may draw attention away from your Ambitious Card -- use only at your own discretion.

How are the production values: The video is great, Murphy’s magic makes great instructional videos.
Is it well made: Yes, although bear in mind that clothing items will eventually need to be washed and fabric items fade over time.
Is it well taught: Danny Weiser teaches most of the video, although it looks like Chris Oberle and a few others “interrupt” the video from time to time to add their own input and extra info and tips.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" You wear it right on your chest.
Does it "play big?" Make sure people are watching what you’re doing – or they’ll miss it.
Difficulty / Skill level required: You will need to convincingly palm and produce a sharpie marker.
How much arts and crafts are involved? You will need to adhere the “sharpie patch” to your clothing and construct a sharpie gimmick.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Absolutely

My thoughts I “guessed” how this trick was done before I bought it, and I was right. But this is still a very clever pen production and a great way to launch into a second effect.
