A California inventor is attempting to change the face of novelty sweatshirts. (It doesn’t take much.) Through InventHelp, manufacturers around the United States will have the opportunity to purchase and develop a sweatshirt with novelty drawstrings that when tied together will give the near-exact appearance of a necktie. From the press release: “One drawstring would feature a wide, tapered, triangular end and the other would feature a thin rectangular end. The drawstrings could then be tied together similarly to a necktie, giving the user the appearance of wearing a necktie.” It is the perfect invention if you’re looking for a table at Le Bernadin and don’t have time to swing home to change out of your hoodie.
