Alabama Crimson Tide fans pay tribute to the hat worn by legendary coach Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant by wearing the houndstooth pattern on everything from clothing to car accessories. Now there’s another option, and it’s on sale.
Closeout retailer Woot.com is offering The Slanket, a fleece throw with sleeves (the product names itself!) in a variety of colors, most notably the aforementioned houndstooth. From the site:
The Slanket is the original gigantic fleece blanket with sleeves. A very soft to the touch, lightweight, but warm fleece blanket with large, loose sleeves designed so you don’t feel like you’re wearing the blanket, simply wrapped up in its wonder. The Slanket is designed to keep your entire body covered and cozy while you still retain the use of your hands. Simplistic and practical, its innovativeness opens up possibilities, but still can replace any normal blanket.
If you’re looking for something to keep you warm as you lounge on the couch underneath your Daniel Moore print, watching your old game tapes, this looks like it will do the job. Any of course, if any of our readers should decide to actually buy one, be sure to send us a snapshot of you wearing it. We’ll make you (semi) famous.
