It's actually a big win for the makers of Snuggie (and presumably Slanket, if that's still a thing). The maker, Allstar Marketing Group, has been at odds with the U.S. Department of Justice since 2010. The ruling means they'll only pay an 8.5 percent tariff to import the
lazy-day robe blankets. As an article of clothing, they would pay a 14.9 percent tax rate because of how the product is categorized.
Good news for the manufacturer, but not as good for Snuggie enthusiasts because it means no more late night watching cable news in the bathroom while tweeting. It'd be fine in a robe, but you're wearing a blanket in the bathroom, you animal.
