Medieval Hoodie Makes You A Knight In Shining Cotton

One hit from a sword and you'll be dead faster than your social standing once you wear this out in public, but you won't find a more comfortable suit of armour than this plated hoodie created by Etsy seller Chadwick Dillon.

It comes complete with a fully retractable face plate and visor built into the hood, so you can be protected from attacking marauders, or just the rain -- whichever happens to be your most pressing issue. Unfortunately you can't order one just yet, but once Chadwick (a perfectly matching medieval name we might point out) gets his Etsy shop in order, you'll be able to order thine self this fine garment and impress the damsels.

    It also protects you from women who might otherwise want to have sex with you.

      Correction: it protects you from shallow, vapid women who might otherwise have sex with you.
      And it protects us women from making the mistake of sleeping with boys like you. A hoodie like that shows that the wearer is self-assured and not afraid of a little fun.

        I'm confused - so as a deep person, you'll rule a guy out because he's not wearing a certain hoody?

        Wrong. It either shows the wearer has shortcomings in their personality and makes up for it with stupid 'witty' and juvenile clothing to get attention, or that the wearer has absolutely no fashion sense whatsoever which probably means they are totally oblivious to how they come across to other people. Either way, not a great guy.

          I guess only guys in turtle-necks are great guys?

          "no fashion sense whatsoever" - I bet if Lady Gaga or somebody similar wore something like this everybody would be talking about it.

          What's wrong with adding a little fun to your everyday life? I am not sure I'd want to live in a world where you can't be ridiculous for the sake of being ridiculous once in a while.

          "the wearer has shortcomings in their personality"
          Seriously? If I saw somebody wearing this I would instantly think that person was awesome.

            Lady Gaga DOES wear this kind of crap. People think she looks like an idiot.

              Lady Gaga is also ridiculously rich. So obviously people like her. All of you need to stop judging people for what they wear and do something more useful with your time.

      Correct DLB_84... well this and playing Diablo III

    That's very impressive! Quite dorky, but still very striking.
    Finally a hoodie that isn't total shit.

    Damsels in Distress... Here I Come... Oops... I forgot my Cotton Sword

    I hope they make them in 4XL, because that is the only size that's going to sell.

      I'm a medium-ish and I want one. Perhaps I can get them to make me a special order I pay through the armoured nose for.

    YOU'LL NEVER STEAL MY VIRGINITY!!!!

    eh screw it, i'll get one anyway for shits and giggles, probs some uni fancy dress party i can go to with

    I'd get one just to wear to D&D now that it's winter..

    A great idea, for, as you all know...winter is comming.

    It's 2012 and there are computers everywhere. Can we stop perpetuating the myth that nerds/geeks don't have sex?

    Also, how is this awesome garment less social acceptable than skinny jeans?

      BAM!!!! This comment! Right here!!! I would rather see a bloke wearing this than wearing pants with no room inside for his equipment!!!

        True that, need somewhere to stash my coin.

      Skinny jeans are socially acceptable because everyone wears them. Wear the clothing of your time... otherwise what are you trying to prove? Trying to get attention?

        Some people just wear clothes because they like them. Just because everybody is wearing skinny jeans and non-medieval hoodies doesn't mean you can't be a little different. Seriously, you can wear something different without it being a big deal or trying get attention.

        Skinny jeans are socially acceptable to a certain demographic.. the same ones that can't see how ridiculous they look with what they are wearing because they have their hair combed over their eyelined eyes.. and sometimes tennis swear bands on their wrist..?... If I saw this hoodie on someone I'd be like, cool.. as oppose to skinny jeans where I get confused if they are male or female until they talk.. speaking of females in skinny jeans... Just no...ok... Just....no.. you have a nice figure,

          there is some relief... at least they are less likely to be able to pass on those (skinny) jeans:

      Of course our definition of sex may differ from the standard point of view.

    Hey everyone, it's funny how you are all debating whether or not this is "acceptable".
    Then there are the assumptions that wearing this (and playing Diablo 3) somehow affects the chances of a guy getting laid.
    I'll be honest with you. I play Diablo 3 and I plan on wearing this. And I'll still get laid.
    It's presumptious opinions like these that cause stereotypes to repeat themselves over and over.
    Open your mind a little.
    Experiment with your clothing style, don't be wearing the same thing (which for a lot of people, have been doing for years on end).

    Can anyone say, "Put the Money in the Bag" :=)

    SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!

    this hoodie is awesome! I cant wait to buy one, the design is great and I actually think that it's incredably fashionable, and most of the of my friends consider me fashionable. in fact, I don't even think it's so unusual or flashy that anyone would feel wierd or out of the ordinary wearing it. It is way to easy to make negative comments when your annonymous. Don't listen to the hoard of buzz kills patrolling the net for something to bash. get over yourselves guys!
