Introducing: the Buddy the Elf Graphic Tee
Last week we said A-OK to the Ugly Christmas Sweater Tee, but this week we’re drawing the line at Urban Outfitter’s Elf-inspired graphic tee. No where on the site can we find any indication that this is either a gag gift or a sleep shirt—rather, the item description refers to the product as a “costume tee,” which is largely open to interpretation, considering Halloween ended last month.
The $39 “One Size Fits All” tee is in Urban Outfitters’ Graphic Tee section, meaning it’s presumably intended for everyday wear or, as UO has styled it—with a pair of black tights and beaded bangles—for an evening look. Are they trying to tell us the Elf Costume Tee is the latest (and ugliest) incarnation of the ugly Christmas sweater? We’re still unsure.
