Six Stylish Alternatives to “The Snuggie”—The Blanket With Sleeves!

Posted in Uncategorized by The Ruffian on February 3, 2009


For months now, the vacuum of popular attention that was sated by the election and global economic crisis, has found a new object of obsession—The Snuggie! You know the Snuggie, that backwards-robe fleece homage to Satanic clerical styles presented in a classic commercial touting its various advantages. Like everyone else we fell in love with the anti-taste marvel and felt that our readers deserved—nay, needed—to see the best Snuggie alternatives the indie fashion world could provide. Others have taken up the cause as well and, while these replacements for the already iconic blanket with sleeves aren’t quite as warm as the original, at least you can wear it to your kid’s baseball game. Mini-reading lamp not included.
