Thanks to one Boston Bruins fan, business suits are now far more absorbent than they used to be.
Yahoo! Sports Greg Wyshynski caught up with a man who decided to gather up discarded rally towels from past playoff games and stitch together a terry cloth suit.
No, that isn't the cover shot of the next issue of GQ Magazine. That's an image of 21-year-old Ken Cruise, who lives in Rhode Island and is something of a tailor.
He is also a good luck charm of sorts, because he was present at Monday night's Game 3 that saw his Bruins take down the Chicago Blackhawks, 2-0.
The Boston faithful cheered on their team, who took a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, and Cruise was no doubt sopping up every last ounce of the wonderment, as well as any beverage spilled on his beautiful suit.
Fortunately, Wyshynski was able to get the "what" and "why" from a fan who took replica jerseys and rally towels to the extreme and fashioned himself the perfect suit to wear right out of the shower.
When asked why he created the suit, Cruise offered, "I get asked that a lot. I don’t know. Big fan of the team."
I'll take it. Although calling himself a fan doesn't quite do his loyalty justice, because this suit took time and a meticulous attention to detail most wouldn't dare spend.
According to the report, the suit took two years and 27 towels to make. I have to say, there might be a market for a ridiculous outfit like this.
Seeing most of the stuff in club stores, I am rather shocked we haven't seen a suit like this before. A round of applause to a remarkably tailored towel suit, because the pockets, lapels and tie are perfectly crafted.
Now if you are at the next game and spill some beer, just have Cruise come over and dive on that for you. No spill is too large and no Bruins game is too small for this absorbent super fan.
