Further Fashion Mistakes – The OnePiece

Norway, Norway, Norway.

No wonder Kenya would piss all over you.

(Its a happy coincidence that this item is from Norway, it gave me a great excuse to watch this again!)

I’ve mentioned before about the Slanket (I’m still waiting for the inventer to just go LULZ YOU BOUGHT THIS SHIT AT £20 WHEN WE BOUGHT IT IN IKEA FOR £3) but this…well, they were created when the designers had a hangover, and felt like wearing joggers and a hoodie was TOO MUCH WORK. No, seriously.

They all agreed on the merits of the sweatsuit for recovering from a night on the town. But without tight waistband and the pressure to go jogging, Thomas said. Knut had been staring at a light bulb when, eureka, it all became clear: why not sew together a hooded sweatshirt and a pair of sweatpants? Lets make it so big that no one in their right mind would think of working out

Not only is the product something that I could easily see sold on QVC’s lesser cousins, the biggest worry I have is how do you go the loo? There isn’t a second zip (as far as I can see) so both the boys and girls are forced to get a bit nudey just to do a wee.

The product images on the website are bad enough as well. Just take a look at these:

I have no words for this one

Where is T-Pain from this picture?

“How can we become more unattractive to the opposite sex? Pull stupid faces and wear these? OK then!”

That is a look of fear in the dogs eyes. It’s OK puppy, I don’t think they make onesies in your size.

This reminds me of bathing costumes from the early part of the 20th Century

This is probably the douchyest (thats a word, hush) photo of them all

If after these photos, you still want to buy one (why?!), they’re at onepiece.co.uk from £80.

    Got lions and tigers (woop de woop de woop woop) only in Kenya. GOT LIONS AND TIGERS ONLY IN KENYA! Man I used to listen to that video on a loop.

    I don’t even know what to say about these. Other than that I really REALLY cannot picture 3 blokes getting together for a little Xbox action and all getting into their sleepsuits together.

      Ken-ya believe it? I used to love it too.
      It looks pretty romantic! Theres an even worse one of a “girls night in” of four girls on a sofa with fizzy pop and crisps. Wheres the wine? Wheres the ridiculous hair? Where are the cakes?! OnePiece, you fail hard.

    Comfy? yes. Douchy? yes. Would I wear one? in secret.
    The boat picture is the cherry on top really…wonder what alan sugar would have to say about that.

      OBVIOUSLY if I’m on my boat, I’d be wearing a OnePiece thats made from a dressing gown with a tie in the middle. (I don’t quite understand it myself.)

    OMG I actually need one of these!!!!! I love my Slanket and I’m not ashamed but the OnePiece would stop a draft on my neck!!!! Perfect!!!!!!

      We are no longer friends.

      p.s. I still <3 you, I just think you have dreadful taste sometimes. Whats wrong with a duvet?

  4. Bel November 22, 2010 / 2:02 pm

    Omg, how can you not love it? It’s a onesie but without the sweaty feet issue!

    A duvet is no substitute, you can’t walk to the kitchen and make a cup of tea and safely keep a duvet wrapped around you!

    That is horrific! That first picture looks like they are attempting to strangle each other with their feet because they are so horrified by the slanket-onesie nightmare, and at the same time can’t bring themselves to touch it with their hands. Hence the foot strangulation.

    The slanket must die!

    Hmm. I’ll confess to loving my slanket,
    but holy shit what the fuck IS that?

    I’ve been trying to decide whether this is the best or worst thing in the whole entire world, but I cannot reach a decision.

    Fairly sure it’s the worst.

    Amazing! I so need one. Along with a boat to hang out on. wtf?!
