The next World of Warcraft expansion is only a week away, which gives me something to do until November, when the official Mists of Pandaria panda hoodie I just ordered from Jinx arrives.
I am a huge fan of hats with ears on them, but as a nearly 40-year-old 6'6" bald man with a beard, wearing one while not in the approximate vicinity of my children just doesn't seem right. A middle-age man in a kitty ear hat is creepy. A middle-age man in a gaming hoodie, on the other paw, is perfectly normal.
Part of gamer clothier Jinx's new line of Mists of Pandaria-branded wearable swag, this sexy black and white number is just your average outerwear until the hood goes up. Then it's party time. This is the type of garment that makes me wish I lived in colder climes.
For those of you with less animalistic tendencies, there's also the Monk hoodie, which is incredibly fancy.
I purchased one of those for my wife, though she never reads my articles so it's still a surprise.
Both hoodies are available for preorder right now, with a ship date sometime in early November, which should give players plenty of time to burn through the next expansion's content. At $60 (panda) and $70 (monk) they are not cheap, but then neither is the design and construction. You get what you pay for. I believe I just paid for another year of you people calling me a furry.
