Muppet Love


Back in the day, I used to annoy the local sporting goods store by purchasing little boy soccer t-shirts and requesting that they iron on my favorite words. By my senior year in high school, my two favorites were a bright green "FLOWER" and a baby blue "POET" t-shirt. I'm not sure what happened to them, but they definitely foreshadowed my mid-twenties obsession with Neighborhoodies.

I waited a long time to jump on the Neighborhoodie bandwagon. I'm quite particular about my sweatshirts, particularly when lettering is involved. After seeing quite a few bloggers sporting the Brooklyn-based hoodies, I decided to take the plunge.

I considered "Uncle Irving" (which will probably be my next purchase) and ruled out "Callalillie" quite quickly. My very first internet handle, however, resurfaced and I knew immediately that "Muppet Love" was destined to grace the front of my custom-designed hoodie.

I love it! Brown and blue are one of my favorite color combinations. I opted for a "ski jacket" instead of a hoodie, as my hooded sweatshirt collection has reached its maximum capacity. Yeah, baby. My Muppet Love Neighborhoodie is the bomb. I even wore it to my staff meeting yesterday afternoon, though I think that I might have been the only one amused. I say poo on everyone.

Muppet Love is respresenting, yo. That's the way it should be.

Have you heard Disney wants to buy The Muppets? Will we lose Waka Waka Waka for good?

that's sweet! i too love that color combination.

so what exactly is the difference between the skii and the regular hoodie.

and you know what annoys me about hoodies? folding them. i never know what to do with the hood part.

Actually, to my knowledge Disney owner Jim Henson company for several years (late 90's, I think, until a few years ago). Henson Inc bought themselves back...but I guess that didn't last that long. I guess they're owned by ComCast now, huh? Ick. So sad. I miss Jim Henson.

I like the color combination, too. I just ordered an "Uncle Irving" girl tee (a pea green shirt, light blue letters). I'm excited. Soon I'll be labeling everything.

The ski doesn't have a hood-- which alleviates the folding problem! But, Tien, if you must know, folding the hood into the chest of the shirt before you fold the arms in works best for me...

brown and blue. weren't you complaining about orange and blue recently? i'm not sure if i can trust ya judgment anymore.

hmm, i think i've tried that folding method before, but with hoods, my piles get all lopsided after a while.

and those neighborhoodies are kind of expensive. i know, they do great custom work and the sweatshirts are great quality, but still. i'll probably end up getting one anyway.

brown and blue are the new black and white

yeah, they are kinda expensive...but i couldn't resist. blue, brown, and green are my favorite colors...i just don't like royal blue and bright orange...cuz they remind me of the mets.

try going to tufts for 5 years and see if you still like brown and blue. seriously, i stare at most people who wear that color combo, expecting them to be someone i went to school with.
