I love swanky baby and kids' catalogs. The pages are filled with exorbitantly priced clothing, toys, and ephemera that every McMansion Mommy will want to have for her precious little Madison or Jacob. Sure enough, some of the clothes are pretty freaking cool, and we have been known to splurge on a few things for Little A from BabyGap or Janie & Jack. But there's no way in clear blue hell I am buying my kid a $94 pirate costume when we could throw the same thing together for free out of Mom and Dad's old Halloween digs.
Which brings me to Chasing Fireflies, one of the aforementioned swanky purveyor of children's goods. Flipping through one of their catalogs, I spied this awesome t-shirt.
It's the freaking Warriors, people! Holy smokes, how bad do I want this for Little A? Were it not for the fact that it retails at $44, he'd be wearing it right now.
Now, if you don't run with the Warriors, you can give a shout to your homies, the Brooklyn Furies.
Or the Delancy Hi-Hats.
For the uninitiated, The Warriors is a great Seventies cult flick about gang wars between various rather interestingly costumed fictional gangs in New York. It's all kind of awesome in a 3 a.m. on HBO kind of way.
Now, I'm not entirely unsure after reading the product description of the t-shirt that the Chasing Fireflies folks are totally ignorant of their merchandise's source material. But those McMansion Mommies? Can they dig it?
