GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Pokemon Pikachu Holiday Sweater

first_img Yeah, it’s a sweater. Yeah, it’s absurdly off-season for a holiday sweater. It gets chilly in the lab. Also, all this Pokemon ‘Let’s Go Pikachu’ stuff means this is some timely holiday wear, so let’s check it out.ThinkGeek’s Pokemon Pikachu Holiday Sweater is exactly what it sounds like: a tacky Christmas sweater with Pikachu on it. Well, I say tacky because that’s the joke of this genre of clothing, but the reds, yellows, and whites all compliment each other with geometric patterns that look every bit as festive as they do license by The Pokemon Company.I’ve seen a lot of themed holiday sweaters over the last few years, and a lot of them have been total trash. I don’t mean terrible designs, but terrible materials. If you walk into a store looking for a hilariously ugly sweater, odds are you’re going to walk out with a sweatshirt with an ugly pattern painted on it. Not so with the Pikachu Holiday Sweater! This is a proper sweater, made entirely of cotton yarn knit together to produce its patterns. It’s warmer, softer, and better made than the cheating sweatshirt holiday “sweaters” you’ll find in some places.That’s probably why the Pokemon Pikachu Holiday sweater has a list price of $49.99. Fortunately, because it’s so ridiculously off-season, ThinkGeek cut the price to 40 percent of that. You can order this sweater for $19.99. Whether you ironically or unironically like the look, this sweater is definitely worth $20. I know I’m going to keep it by my desk for when the air conditioner in the lab reaches hilarious extremes, which is more often than you’d think.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
