The first 25 people to make a pledge on the Pizza Pocket Hoodie Kickstarter will get the hoodie for $49. After that, you’ll have to pledge $55 to get one. Keep in mind, though, that crowdfunded projects don’t always become real-life products. The Pizza Pocket Hoodie campaign does, however, state that “that manufacturer has been sourced and everything is ready to start the first order.” The first batch of Pizza Pocket Hoodies is expected to arrive in June, if all goes according to plan, that is.
The sweater is being touted as “the world’s first hoodie that can cleanly hold a slice of pizza.” While it may be the first hoodie to achieve that feat, it’s not the only article of clothing with a pizza pocket. There was, of course, the Pizza Pouch, a slice-shaped plastic carrier on a lanyard, and the perhaps lesser-known Pizza Parka, which was made of the same stuff as Pizza Hut’s delivery bags.
What we’re saying is, whether the Pizza Pocket Hoodie gets crowdfunded or not, there’s sure to be another innovation in pizza-carrying fashion in the future. So, whether you strike now or wait for what's to come, you probably won't have a hard time finding weird and objectively questionable ways to wear pizza. Or, you know, you could just use your hands to hold things. Just an idea.
