    Well, it has sufficient drape to satisfy the learned folks here.

    I may wear one to the next sf meetup.

    Definitely a step up from the bedsheet I used to drape myself in during college.

    Makes a perfect gift! It says "I hate you" in so many ways.

    It obviously hideous, but that aside I don't understand the point. I don't think I have ever, in my entire life, thought "man, if only I were wearing a towel right now." Crocs are a sin against God, but I understand the notion of putting comfort over style. This, on the other hand, makes no sense - towels aren't exactly comfortable enough to wear as clothing.

    Don't knock it till you try it.

    Have some terry cloth tshirts. nice and soft.

    Good point, but for some reason I was picturing these as much more plush than a shirt would be - more like a nice, thick towel. It just seems to me that it would trap moisture and become gross/uncomfortable.

    Though I am now intrigued by the terry shirt.
