Jackets and Sweaters

If you find yourself having to catch up on sleep on your lunch break or during a bus ride, Los Angeles-based designer Josh Woodle may be able to improve your life with his new “Hypnos Hoodie”. The garment looks like a conventional hoodie, except the hood itself inflates to form “a perfectly ergonomic pillow”.

The hoodie is available in three colors and features an oversized design that conceals the pillow without being bulky. The pillow also inflates in just three seconds to maximize your nap time efficiency.

The Hypnos Hoodie is currently a fully funded Kickstarter campaign, but there is still time to nab one for a minimum pledge of $49.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be everywhere right now, but Ryan Reynolds isn’t letting us forget about the Merc with a Mouth. Reynolds is counting down the 12 Days of Deadpool to spread holiday cheer. From Deadpool’s Christmas list to this lovely sweater, he’s keeping it lively.

If someone doesn’t make this sweater, I’ll be shocked. Of course someone will make it. It clearly needs to be a thing we can buy.

Check out his tweet after the break.

Japanese company Trove has redesigned the haori (a traditional short coat normally worn over a kimono) with new fabrics that are designed for warmth as well as comfort and ease of movement.

The samurai look is going to be hot next year—I can feel it.

The navy wool haori has a wool shell and is lined with cupra rayon. It’s also understated enough to pair with contemporary clothing. The golden haori also has a wool shell, but the lining is made from a fabric developed for the British Royal Air Force called ventile (you learn something new every day).
