Are you one of those people who have a constant, slow-burning desire to randomly punch a stranger in the face? Because I am. And it’s not because I’m a mean or violent person – I just hate people. Which is why if there is one piece of clothing I need to protect me from the onslaught of pleasant human interaction this winter, it’s this: The “Leave Me Alone” Sweater.
Created by a quirky Asian girl who dubs herself a “Pinterest Engineer by day, Maker by night,” this anti-social sweater is exactly what it sounds like – a hipster/bougie turtleneck with a zipper. It’s designed to scream “LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE” for people who don’t already suffer from crippling Tourette’s. According to the inventor, Ruth Grace: “The sweater is ‘more of a statement than a functional piece of clothing’ since you can’t really see anything through it.”
Fuck yes, Ruth Grace. For alllllll the reasons. First off, you have a job title that’s like, grade-A Bachelor-worthy. It takes a whole lot of creativity and psychosis to conjure up a name like that. LinkedIn recruiters must be all up in your DMs.
Secondly, you sure AF know your demographic. Half the people reading this article haven’t spoken out loud to another human today, so why should we have to give up a good thing?
And lastly, thanks for providing us all with non-political comic relief for the coming week. The vision of angry people blindly roaming the streets looking like Katy Perry’s Left Sharks and Dancing Lobsters from the Amanda Show is something we all need more of in our lives. .
