Jedi Bathrobe Promises to Make Bathtimes a Little More Fun for Grown-upsby iona
I am sorry to all you die hard Star Wars fans. I like the movies, but isn’t it about time you put it to rest? Just when I thought Star Wars inspired stuff was about done to death, firebox.com released a Jedi-inspired bathrobe. OK, it did make me giggle a little bit. As firebox themselves note: “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the Jedi Council decreed that their default costume should resemble a brown dressing gown.” Their brown, cotton velour bathrobe, replete with an embroidered Jedi logo does look rather like regulation Jedi clobber. It has a large hood, wide sleeves and a sash belt to conceal your Jedi weapons and identity. I can imagine you all prancing about in this and practicing Jedi moves as I type this.
The Jedi bathrobe is priced at £49.99 ($70). I bet Luke Skywalker didn’t have to pay for his Jedi clothing.
