Friday Fun: Adidas Originals Hooded Leopard sweatshirt

Adidas-leopard-sweater

  Tons o’ fun?

Or something no self respecting adult should ever wear?

Well, that’s for you to decide. If, however, you decide that yes, you really DO need an item of clothing that allows you to have a tail and paws, it’s 187 euros and you can buy it here.

    Wow, the front is really cute (I can see my 11 year old wanting it since she now wears adult size clothes) but the back! ACK!

    ok its cutesy and my 9 yo wants one but I as a self respecting fashion addict and adult would never think of wearing a representation of a dead cat or pretending to look like a cat or whatever the designer was thinking with this monstrosity. Tails and ears are for Halloween.

    Without the tail and paws at the back, I would wear this in a heartbeat. But that tail would bug me far too much. If it only came with a plain cream back.

    That is really just unfortunate. It reminds me of cheap godzilla costumes at halloween.

    My toddler has a little jacket similar to this, only minus the face, tail and paws. It has ears and is colored to resemble Disney’s Tigger.
    I think this needs to be put into the category of “adults dressing like toddlers.”

    well it made me laugh – but I guess that’s not the point of adult clothing is it? It kind of reminds me of a project I worked on in college for childrenswear – tons of fun making hoodies for kids to look like real animals.

    The claws are really freaking me out, otherwise I think it’s kinda cute… For a kid.

    Damn, from the front (maybe without the things on the hood), this looked cute. It had a nice print and looked like it could be very cute. But then add the legs and forearms and it looks like you just killed and skinned a leopard and through it on.

    Oh, that’s cheered me up tremendously. Barking mad, of course, but very funny.

    That’s cute! I probably wouldn’t wear it, but if I was hanging out with wacky friends, hell yeah!

    I’d be tempted if the sweatshirt was modelled on one of the hyrax species, only then I’d have to be worried about being beaten up by someone wearing the leopard version…

    Heh…I’ll admit to finding the hood part cute. I had a hoodie a couple years ago that had teddy bear ears, and I adored it. But the back legs and tail? Why?!

    I love the hood, but the tail and legs have taken it too far.

    I could see my fifteen year old sister being all over it. And I would like it minus the tail and legs. All in all- do they come in baby sizes because the only people who can get away with this are those who haven’t reached kindergarten yet!

    I think it’s cute, but not really wearable. 🙁

    You know I was loving it until I saw the back. Bummer.
